Pennsic is going to be fast approaching and it’s time to start assembling the East’s finest blades for the Champ’s teams. I’ll be coordinating and captaining the Melee Champ Team once again this year, and I’m looking for fencers with the skill, comportment and character to represent our kingdom.
If you are interested in being on the Melee Champ’s team this year, please fire me an email at Justin.Aucoin@gmail.com so I can add you to my list of candidates.
Important: I want to make it clear that I want to hear from anyone who’s interested in the melee champs team. It doesn’t matter if you’re a Master of Defense, just got your AoA, or just got authorized two minutes ago. What I care about is that you have the passion and will to represent your kingdom.
Once I hear from folks I’ll compile the long list of candidates and will get in touch with them on when/where we’ll work together to get ready for the war point. Barring some sort of catastrophe, the Pennsic Melee Champs team will be chosen from this list, so if you want to represent the East, let me know.
Also of note: You can throw your hat in the ring for the melee team and also try to fight your way in for the Pennsic single’s champ team. I have zero issue with that and encourage it.
Please forward this notice to your local fencing practices. I don’t want anyone who might be interested on making the team miss out.
If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.
