The Ayreton Fighter Practices
** Grey Gargoyles -
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 2p
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."
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.
