      As winter yields to spring, the Dragon begins to stir from its winter slumber. Its warm breath calls to mind the hot winds of Pennsic to come, and we its children, must dutifully prepare for war.
      Soon, many of our kinsmen will trek south to Gulf Wars, honing their steel and their skills in preparation for the campaign season. These are the first waves in the rising tide of war. Now is the time to prepare! Now is the time to choose whether to be swept under by that tide, or to master it, that it's current might bear us to glory! The summer will pass in a blink of the Dragon’s eye. But for now, those eyes are open, and they are turning to the East.
      The command staff and I have been busy laying our plans and we have set a good many things in place.  Yet all of our planning and work mean less than nothing without you.  So gather your crew and mark your calendars. The time to act is upon us!  Rapier Champions Team tryouts approach. Melee plans and hay bales are being ordered.  Will you be there to make the difference? You are the flesh and blood of the Dragon, and without you, it cannot soar.
      This summer, as the army of the Dragon grows and trains, let’s remember to enjoy ourselves. If you are the MIC for an event this summer, I strongly encourage you to contact your regional commander or myself.  We would be happy to help you with your event and can offer to organize an afternoon game if you’d like. I don’t want every event to only focus on preparing for Pennsic, instead, I want to encourage more people to come out and fight as a part of a group with their friends.  I do not want us to get so focused on winning the war that we loose sight of having fun all season long.  
      I think we all remember what happened the last time the rapiers of the Tyger and the Dragon were crossed, and come August there will be many who think the Dragon’s teeth have been pulled.  With your help, my job is to show them just how mistaken they truly are!  The challenge lies before us, and renown is promised to the victor.  Are you ready to seize it?
      Draco Invictus!
      Lt General of Rapier
