      Your Towne Cryer has received no information regarding practices having been moved, delayed, stopped or otherwise changed due to Pennsic.  I will be leaving for Pennsic myself this coming Thursday.  If your practice schedule has changed please get it to me by Wednesday so that I may announce those changes
      Much thanks!
      The Ayreton Fighter Practices
      ** Grey Gargoyles - 
      Hoobah!  Annette is graciously bringing refreshments for all those that come the Ayreton Fighter Practice and Garb Circle.  She brings Pickles, Oranges. Pretzels and other stuff as well.  She does this out of her own pocket.  After speaking with many of the fighters at the practice it was commonly agreed that it would be wonderful if people who come would be able to give Annette just $1 so that she can keep bringing the refreshments.  BY NO MEANS IS THIS A REQUIREMENT.  If you can that is great!  If not, that's okay.  (It is a college campus folks.)
        The Province of Tree Girt Sea, Shire of Grey Gargoyles and Shire of Vanished Woods all officially practice at the Grey Gargoyles site every Sunday of the month.  We call this the Ayreton Fighter PracticePractices have been starting at 1p for Talib's class.  Heavy practice starts more or less around 2p.
      Talib (CCK) leading a book reading with students of the sword with Tom Leoni's new English translation.  This is a more cerebral class starting off by discussing the assigned readings and then stepping into practical application.  This Class runs from 1:00 to 2:30
          Directions to the Grey Gargoyles Site
