Changing things around in Ayreton Arts Martial

To All Youth Fighters and their parents:
We have a new site for boffer fighting practice. We will have
practice now twice a month, on the first and third Mondays of the
month from 6:30-8:30 p.m. We now have 12-16 fighters coming to
practice on a regular basis, with at least 2 fighters in each
division regularly showing up.

north of Butterfield Rd on the right. Wheaton-Warrenville South High
School is on the west side of the road and the church is up on a
hill across from the very back of the high school campus-this is the

We sincerely want to Thank Fox Vale for giving us our starting
location. We simply grew too big for that site. But without them,
this wouldn't have happened.
**it doesn't map quest well. Country Glen Drive is off of North
Aurora between Route 59 and Eola on the north side of the street.
The house is the first one facing Country Glen and is on the left
side of the street. It is gray with a yellow front door. The house
number is above the garage door.
The Ayreton Fighter Practices:
** GREY GARGOYLES -
AYRETON FIGHTER PRACTICE AND GARB CIRCLE
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
Practices have been starting at 1p for Talib's rapier book reading
and practical application. Heavy practice starts more or less
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
