A hearty thank you is well and truly deserved for Mistress Ro Honig Von Somerfeldt and her deputy Lord Michael Acrensis for their hard work and great contribution to the Heavy list community. The feedback I have been seeing from the Heavy List University has been amazing. Your staff, instructors and folks that pitched in were all brilliant. I’d like to add special thanks to Aesa, Serena, Quintus, Fredrick. The food was amazing, the instructors passionate and knowledgeable, and the weather cooperative (what a rarity).

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.
The Falmouth Middle School demo’s date has changed to April 11! Fighters, fencers, artisans and craftspeople are needed to show the students what we do and what was done. 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.
