War is once again behind us, and though the fertile mantle of the East Kingdom will soon be covered in snow, it’s the perfect time for its fencers, soldiers, and duelists to bare polished steel and mind their deadly art. Another war is always around the bend, and preparation is paramount to victory!
To keep the East Kingdom rapier army’s skills sharp and improve unit cohesion, the Barony of Carolingia will be hosting an EK Regional Fencing Practice on Sunday, January 4th. At the practice, fencers will get a chance to work on their melee skills both with their household/local fencing unit, and with the kingdom army at large. There’ll also be time for single bouting, and a tournament taking place is also a strong possibility.
There will also be a class or two for fencers to learn from. Parties interested in teaching a fencing class (be it for single or melee), should contact Lord Remy Delemontagne de Gascogne, Captain of the Carolingian Caliver Company with their class title and agenda.
When: Sunday, January 4th from 12-5pm
Where: Cambridge War Memorial (1640 Cambridge St, Cambridge, MA 02138), Barony of Carolingia
Cost: $5 entrance fee that goes to the school for maintenance
Other notes: Street parking is free on Sundays and folks can park in the Harvard Vanguard parking lot across the street. Please wear non-marking footwear. Because this is a practice, non-authorized fencers are allowed to participate.
