We would like to thank all who attended this year's Halloween Demo at our Keep. Expecting only 7 members to show due to family, work, or prior plans with kids, we were suprised that 25 people showed up for this Demo! We had 4 Steel fighters and 6 Rapier/Shinai fighters. Huzzah to Umbria! The rest of the 25 assisted in the Candy Hording... *cough*, I mean, distributing...
Our sitting royal, HIH Dame Shahara, presided over the entertainment from her throne upon her dias as her custodians monitored the collect of sweets by the locals. Our donation of sweets to the community was well received, though we were STILL unable to fill the "Bowl of Candy Death", but we'll try again next year... Thanks again for your support and we hope everyone had fun. I'm sure the neighborhood kids will be talking about this for the next year!
With Sincerest Loyalty,
Domina del Ludus Lama di Crescente

The Demo will be held at our Keep and will begin around 5:30-6pm but we'd like people to show up prior to that time if possible for set up and presence. Our address is 3932 W. Marlette Ave Phoenix, AZ 85019. If you require directions, please feel free to contact myself or Sir Gaetano by phone or email and we'll be sure to get that to you. Remember that everyone that attends is requested to bring a bag of candy with them to contribute to the "Candy Bowl of Death" for the kids. Shinai, Rapier, Steel, bring it all and we'll get it out there! The kids in the neighborhood LOVE this demo! If you're attending, please avoid parking directly in front of the house so that drivers-by can view the event and possibly stop...
