Meetings, Guilds and Workshops


Business/Populace Meeting
Stargate's Business and Populace meetings are held together on the first Monday of each month. Until further notice, the meeting will be held at the Trini Mendenhall Community Center, located at 1414 Wirt Road in Houston. The meeting begins at 7:15 p.m., and we will finish promptly at 8:45 p.m. because they lock up at 9 p.m. sharp. Garb is optional.  We have a private room reserved. Please check the bulletin board in the lobby.

If you have any topics to present at the populace meeting, please email the Seneschal, Lady Talia, so she can include you on the agenda.

Stargate Armored Combat Practices

Stargate's Chivalric and Rapier fighter practice is BACK ON! There will be an official fighter practice on Sundays at 10am at Ray Miller Park on Eldridge (unless the weather says otherwise).

From the Knight Marshal:

If you are an armored combat fighter, please come out. In addition to practicing, I want to talk to the group about what we want to get out of practices and how to get as many fighters as we can to come to practice.

Fighter practice isn't just for fighters either! I would encourage anyone to come out in garb and enjoy the park. Bring A-S projects to work on, or maybe some baronial work projects. Bring a picnic and be social. The more people we get out there, the more visible we are to the public!

In service,
Master Alden Drake

Houston/Beaumont area Official Youth Chivalric Practice

Practices are held monthly; location varies. All interested youth are encouraged to attend. All adults are welcome to donate their time and knowledge to the proceedings.

If you use Facebook, check out the Youth Chivalric Practice Group Page.

Another option for interested fighters is the Gate's Edge Fighter practice held starting at 10 am on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month at Meyer Park. Note on location: Meyer Park is on both sides of Cypresswood. The main entrance for both sides is at Meyer Park Dr, which has a stop light. Driving down Cypresswood from 249 we are on the right side; coming from I-45 we are on the left. We are just inside the park between the parking lot and the road, on the right as you enter. Look for shields and a banner.

Stargate/Gate's Edge Archery Practice

Archery Practice is held once a month, usually at Carter Park in Spring, TX.
Carter Park features a 12-lane archery shooting range that includes target distances from 10 yards to 70 meters. The shooting area is enclosed by a fence and includes a 40-foot by 100-foot pavilion that covers the shooting line, as well as several picnic tables and benches. 

Practices start at 9 AM and go to 11 AM or until we get tired of shooting and are followed by a visit to the Potato Patch for lunch.  As always the dates are subject to change as the kingdom calendar or the marshal's availability changes so check online or contact the Archery Marshal to confirm. As expected all practices are weather permitting.
