We thank you for your support during this tough time, and hope that you and your families are staying safe.

Greetings and Welcome to Calafia's Potrero War Website!

Come join us once again, as their Excellencies of Calafia cordially invite one and all to travel down for a wonderful sojourn into the Dream of our Society at Potrero War. 

Partake of friendship, food, and fun – there will be Armored, Rapier, and Unarmored combat, Archery and Thrown Weapons, Hound Coursing, Demos, Heraldic consultation, a Scribal Workshop, and Arts and Sciences of all kinds, all under the shade of the majestic oak trees at Potrero Regional Park. 

The event will occur Memorial Day weekend, Thursday, May 21st through Monday, May 25th, 2020.

We look forward to seeing you!

After the Siege

The siege is over.
Long ago was the
Curtain wall breeched,
Its rough hewed stones
Trebucheted down
The steep slope,
Tumbled memories
Marking the invaders’ entry.

Battle cries echo in the wind,
Whistle through the empty arrow loops,
Climb the tower’s worn stone stairs
To cloud laced skies overlooking
Green fields of another age.
