Thankyou for visiting our site.
The Shire of Bordescros is part of the Kingdom of Lochac (Australia and New Zealand), the 19th Laurel Kingdom of the Society for Creative Anachronism's Knowne World.
Our lands lie south of Torlyon, south-west of Politarchopolis, north-east of Cairnfiall, north of Stormhold and north-west of Arrowsreach.What this means is the Shire is found in the area bordered by Wagga Wagga NSW in the north, to Tumbarumba in the East and follows the western side of the Snowy Mountain region to Myrtleford. Across to Wangaratta Vic in the south and as far west as Deniliquin.
Bordescros is centered around Albury /Wodonga and has a satellite group, Loch Alba located at Wagga Wagga.
What is the Society for Creative Anachronism?
It started as a costume party for a group of history majors at the University of California, Berkley and has grown over the years to a world wide social and sporting organisation for people with an interest in medieval times.
Social activities include feasts, balls, revels and the side activities of our wars and tournaments.
The sporting side includes armoured combat, rapier combat, archery, dancing and equestrian activities.
Those with a scholastic bent are not forgotten either and the Society both welcomes and encourages people to delve into history and reproduce the objects of wonder and beauty or treatise on how things were done.
We welcome enquiries from anyone interested in finding out more about our activities.
Please check the calendar for upcoming events to attend, to find your closest group see http://www.sca.org.au/lochac/groups/groups.php or contact the Bordescross Seneschal, whose details are on the Officers page.We are also on facebook www.facebook.com/
