** Grey Gargoyles -
Yes, we are open for the Summer and so is the building Ida Noyes.
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 Practice. Practices have been starting at 1p.m.
Group Rapier Marshall, Companion of the Cavendish Knot Moira O'Dorran is teaching a novice fencers class. This class is good for those just interested, not yet authorized and those needing to, "get back to basics." This Class runs from 2:30 to 4:00
Lord Talib is teaching a class on Fabris in accompanyment 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

Questions can be Directed to the Tree Girt Sea Marshal of Fence Kevin Ambrozjewski. His e-mail is kevinp9523@...
Inigo Montoya:You are using Bonetti's Defense against me, ah?
Man in Black: I thought it fitting considering the rocky terrain.
Inigo Montoya: Naturally, you must suspect me to attack with Capa Ferro?
Man in Black: Naturally... but I find that Thibault cancels out Capa Ferro. Don't you?
Inigo Montoya: Unless the enemy has studied his Agrippa... which I have.
I will officially be starting Wednesday night fighter practices in
my back yard again the Wednesday
following Memorial Day which I
believe is the 31st. They will run from 6:30 ish to 9pm and if you
get here early enough you can catch a bite to eat. Bring
contribution if you can.
Weather dependent and I will post cancellations as quickly as
possible, but if it is Wed. then there will generally be practice or
at least space for something.

For those who don't arts martial, I have 4 sewing machines and a
