I first met the SCA in Ansteorra in 1976. Swashbuckling was pretty much invented in my college quad—rattan daggers and all—and a couple of guys who would later win some of the first White Scarves invited me to a weekend demo at the Texas Renaissance Faire. Back then it was all about wine, women, and song. I tried on a Cavalier outfit, but I looked like Peter Frampton in drag, so I grew my first mustache to look manly in a wig.

I think my first armor was made of scrap carpet, with a borrowed helmet made from a Freon can. Later I upgraded to white plastic pipe salvaged from oilfield drilling mud samples.

I got married and settled down. Decades passed.
 
Many years later, as a dad, I was looking for a way to get outdoors, go dancing, enjoy a sport, and give our home school a boost. The SCA met all the requirements, but I have to say my wife was suspicious given my earlier experience in the club. We found the [[Windmasters’ Hill]] group at the local Festival for the Eno and have been active since the turn of the century.

These days I’ve retired from fighting. Cooking is my big interest, especially making period food delicious and accessible. With my family and friends, I have cooked in the SCA every few months for years. Kitchen people are the best. I love English Country dance, working with children, improv comedy with the ''[[i Firenzi]]'' troupe, and creative camp furnishings. Lately I have also tried my hand at [https://charlesfleming.bandcamp.com/ songwriting].

My house is on the border between Sacred Stone and Windmasters' Hill. I attent events in both directions. In 2019 I threw a party for all the armored fighting clubs in the area, including the Knights of Fiat Lux, HEMA, and the Triangle Sword Conservatory. I hope to make that a regular thing. As far as I'm concerned, if you strap on harness and trade licks you're a comrade in arms. It matters little whether you spar with rattan or bokken or rebated steel. They all have their pros and cons.

The seat of the Counts of Flanders and the largest town in western Europe during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, Ghent was at the heart of the Flemish cloth trade. By 1350, the city boasted a population of 50,000, of whom no less than 5000 were directly involved in the industry.

<br>
 
Edward III of England went to Ghent to be crowned king of France.  His son John, duke of Lancaster, was called John (of) Gaunt because he was born there.
 
<br>
 
Flanders began the 14th Century by defeating the French and their local vassals in the Battle of the Golden Spurs. In the turbulent years that followed, Ghent was essentially ruled by guilds of tradesmen and their representatives.  The guilds even maintained their own armies, of which I was a member.
