Where to start??? My name is Morgan Bartholomew Cuthbert, although most people just know me as Spike, and Iím a Lost Boy. I have been active, off and on, in the SCA for around twelve years. Within the Society I live in late fourteenth century and early fifteenth century England. I am a heavy weapons fighter, and I recently dedicated myself to improving markedly in this area in which I have only played around in the past. I am predominantly a spear and polearm fighter, although I have started to fight strictly sword and shield in an attempt to improve in that style. In addition, I find myself much more often on a field in a melee situation than in a singles tourney. Besides fighting I have numerous interests in the Society. I enjoy dancing quite a bit, and look forward to dancing at each event I attend. I also enjoy armoring, when I can fit it into my schedule. I am interested in woodworking and candle making, even though I have not yet participated in either of these activities.

I enjoy greatly the numerous friendships that I have built with people throughout Knowne world. Although I travel, for the most part, within the Middle Kingdom, and within the Principality of Northshield therein, I also try to take a number of trips outside the Kingdom to visit my numerous friends outside the kingdom. In the next year I look forward to visiting some events in Trimaris (Hero of the Chalice), Meridies (Gulf Wars), and Ethelmearc (The Tournament of the White Hart and Pennsic War). Who knows, I may see you there. If you see me, please feel free to say hello. Iím always interested in meeting new people from a variety of different backgrounds. I feel thatís one of the biggest benefits of being in the SCA, the opportunity to meet people that you would never wind up meeting otherwise.

Mundanely, I am a computer programmer. I have been doing that for about 4 years now. Prior to that I worked temp jobs along with being a Track Coach for two years. Before that I was completing my college education at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul. I am very active in sports and sports related activities. In high school and college I competed in Track and Cross Country running. Since then I have taken up biking, volleyball, basketball, softball, and racquetball. I still run from time to time too. I follow Professional Basketball (Go Timberwolves!) and Football (Go Vikings!) pretty closely. Iím also in a fantasy football league (won it last year) and a fantasy basketball league (won that last year too). I have also started to become something of a world traveler. I visited Germany and Hungary in 1998. In 1999 I am going to Australia. In 2000 I will probably go to either England or Japan, not sure which yet.

Now that youíve been bored to tears with my rambling, Iíll let you go. Hope you enjoyed your trip to my little corner of the Lost Boys web site. If you have any comments, or if youíd just like to say hello, please feel free to contact me at sca_spike@hotmail.com. I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event.
