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.
** Thieves of Heart
This is a Rapier and Heavy fighter practice now. If you are a heavy fighter interested in this practice please contact Gintaras at gintarasthetaura@...
Rapier - Spring is fast approaching and we can hear the faint sounds of grumbling from other kingdoms once called allies, once called enemies. The Great Gulf Way has come upon us almost without warning and so those warriors not able to answer the call of our allies as asked to help those that answer to train and better serve Our Majesties! The Thieves of Hearts have answered this call and train all who wish to learn in what they know.
This practice is open to everyone and is currently training several newcomers in the basics of rapier as well as training more advanced skills. So whether you have never picked up a blade before (there were 2 at last weeks practice), have a few practices under your belt (there were 3 at last weeks practice) or have been fencing for some time (More than several of those) this practice can certainly accomodate you.
This is about having fun folks and it is an SCA practice and therefor open to everyone!

It's a cozy place with, good instructors, and enthusiastic staff. Full service pro shop, if Terry can't fix it, it's really broke. :) The range is only 20 yards, but what can you do in the city. Range fee is small $8 / hour. $0.50 for targets if you don't bring your own. Due to insurance, crossbows aren't allowed.
