Welcome to the Marche of Alderford!

Parade Photo The Marche of Alderford is a local branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism, located in Stark, Carroll, and Tuscarawas Counties, Ohio. We are part of the Barony of Brendoken, which in turn is part of the Middle Kingdom.

The SCA is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to the study and re-creation of the culture of the Middle Ages. Our meetings are free and open to the public. To learn more about Alderford and the SCA, visit one of our meetings or contact any of our officers. We hope you'll come and join us in creating the Current Middle Ages!

Alderfolk Victorious in Baronial Championships

Serjant Einar Blakklar was the victor in last weekend's Brendoken Barional Championship for heavy weapons, and Lord Gabriel de Porte was the victor in rapier combat.

Alderford Web Site Upgraded

The Alderford web site has been completely rebuilt from scratch using a content mangement system (CMS) called "Drupal". Drupal is an Open Source free software package that can be downloaded from http://www.drupal.org/ .

The site isn't finished yet. In particular, Drupal's photo albums are really primitive compared to what I had on the old site, so I'm actually going to build my photo album code (with enhancements, such as the navigation aids suggested by Ailith) into a new module for Drupal. I'll then release that module as freeware to become part of Drupal itself.

I hope you enjoy the new site. I will be enabling features one by one over the next few days, as I fine-tune the software.

Oaken Melee School V: War of Southern Aggression
