Turn out was light tonight but Kith, Dru, Christian, and I all managed
to brave the cold and get some good fighting time in.
The site simply was a pleasant surprise - a full basketball court
which made for some fun 2 on 2 melee practice as well as a series of
pole arm bouts.
The site easily has room for 4-6+ fights going at the same time, so
the only thing we need is more people to come out and swing a stick.
And as Kith mentioned, the bar is right around the block so we had
time to complain about the latest set of bruises over a drink.
