Company of Saint George


Company of Saint George
The first of the Tournament Companies, founded in the SCA kingdom of Caid in 1990, the Company of Saint George strives to bring a more authentic approach to SCA tourneying, as well as emphasizing the character of tourney combatants. The Company now has two chapters, the larger one in the West kingdom, and a smaller but active one in Caid. The Company (CSG) actively assists others who wish to build their own companies, having lent assistance in the founding of the Company of Saint Michael and the Company of the Star.
Additionally, the CSG has been the first company to experiment and to bring the pas d'armes back into the SCA experience, experimenting to find the best balance for various kinds of SCA events.
Modeled chiefly on the English Order of the Garter and the German tournament societies of the 14th centuries, the Company is an association of nobles within the SCA who wish to see the tournament experience improved.
