A hearty welcome to one and all to the website of the Principality of the Summits, the southernmost lands of the Kingdom of An Tir.

The SCA is a practical history society, recreating the arts and skills of pre-17th century Europe. While dressed in clothing of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, you can experience tournaments, royal courts, feasts, and dancing. You also have the opportunity to learn and practice ancient arts and skills — calligraphy, cooking, armoring, metalworking, carpentry, and needlework (to name just a few) — within an all-ages social group. The SCA is a great place to make friends and learn transferable skills.

Principality Regnum

Dearest Summits,

We, Kenric and Dagmar, are humbled by the love you have shown us. We hope to exceed the expectations you have of us and show what it means to be part of this wonderful principality. We have much love and admiration for all of you and feel incredibly lucky to have such wonderful people in our lives. We have never felt more honored. We will strive to be our best selves and bring honor to this fair principality as it rightly deserves.

This weekend was overwhelming. The list was full of mighty warriors and virtuous consorts. Every person fought with the greatest amount of chivalry. This was the most beautiful tourney, both on and off field, we have see in quite a long time. We were both honored to participate in it.

The excitement, love, and joy in the eyes and voices of the people warmed our hearts and we feel privileged to be part of the Summits. This event was very well done, and we would like to thank all those that made it so wonderful.

Kenric and Dagmar
