The Barony of the Cleftlands is the Cuyahoga County (Cleveland), Ohio chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. and is dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century Europe. As a non-profit organization, the chapter is available for demonstrations at schools, scout troops, festivals, or anywhere that there is room to set up safely to demonstrate the arts and martial skills practiced.
Consider the following items when arranging a demo:
- Please provide at least 30 days notice so we may try to staff and organize a quality demonstration for your organization.
- The Barony of the Cleftlands will not confirm a demo if we cannot secure sufficient representation. We also reserve the right to cancel all demonstrations.
- Most of our members are working professionals, making it sometimes difficult, but not impossible, to accommodate daytime demonstrations. Evening or weekend demos are generally easier to staff than daytime ones. Daytime demos may have limited scope.
- For fighting demonstrations, we require at least a 25′ by 25′ space (list) for fighting – this is a safety requirement for both combatants and spectators.
