Editorial-Back to the Future part IV

You probably won’t run into Marty McFly or Doc Brown this weekend in Port Gamble and while the lumber town will be filled with knights, ladies and squires, casting crews from “Back to the Future IV” probably won’t be on hand either.

You probably won’t run into Marty McFly or Doc Brown this weekend in Port Gamble and while the lumber town will be filled with knights, ladies and squires, casting crews from “Back to the Future IV” probably won’t be on hand either.

Too bad. They’d have a great movie set for certain as the Society for Creative Anachronism hosts its 21st annual Medieval Faire.

Where else outside of the theater can folks take in the finer points of swashbuckling, archery and chivalry — yes, contrary to popular belief, it’s actually alive and well — as well as more arts and crafts than you can shake a short sword at. Okay, maybe a battle axe.

Besides, folks at the SCA are more than happy to share their unique world with you. They’re pretty knowledgeable about the customs and fashions of the Middle Ages and on Monday you can wow your co-workers by telling them you had a nice conversation with the Black Knight.

The really great thing about the event is you don’t need 1.21 gigawatts or a DeLorean with a Flux Capacitor to get there, just a car and a sense for adventure.
