Announcing the Fencer’s Colloquium: a bi-weekly venue for camaraderie and consultation on all things historically rapier.
In order to make more time at the gymnasium and out on the field for the actual practice of Fencing, this bi-weekly get-together will focus on talking about fencing, sharing research, discussing techniques, etc. so that we can put these ideas into use on Tuesday and Friday evenings.
The venue will rotate around to various coffee houses, tea shoppes, brew pubs and back yards (in warmer weather) to allow for a steady flow of new ambiance to keep our conversations engaging.
If there are enough researchers interested in presenting something they’ve looked into, we could even have a rotating schedule of presenters to get the conversations started.
We are already having these conversations at practice. Let’s make more, intentional room for them.

This is a great way to share what you love about the SCA with some new faces. Please contact the Chatelaine, Lady Odelina of St. Albans to volunteer.
Event location, time, and date details are on the Malagentia Calendar.
Our history is not only in words and pictures, but also in video. Malagentia Chronicler Christiana Crane has scoured the Tube of You for videos pertaining to the life and times of Malagentians and has discovered these treasures of the past. This record will be updated as new videos surface.
