Iron Bog Fight Practice
- Greetings to all good gentles and fighter of the Southern Region.As many of you know last Sunday the Shire of Iron Bog hosted an free indoor fighter practice open to anyone who wanted to attend. There were more then a dozen fighters in armor and even more gentles with their children were having a good time.Unfortunately, the site's bathroom was left in a mess. Someone stuffed paper towels in one of the toilets. Further, those gentles who brought food and their lunches left their trash and scraps of food behind. This is unacceptable.Lady Siobhan who obtain the site from her employer, took the heat for our mess and we owe her our gratitude. In the twenty years I have lived in the East Kingdom I have always taken pride that we leave sites in a better condition then we found them. Sadly, this no longer seems to be the case. It is hard enough to find sites that will let us practice indoors. We should do our best to keep them clean. Further, no one is served by putting our own members in trouble with their employers, because of our own negligence.I do not expect a lot of responses to this message. I find it hard to believe that there is anyone who thinks we have the right to trash sites we use for our sport. Rather, I hope each of us thinks and acts to keep this or any site we use clean and in better shape then we started. Parents need to keep an eye on their children. I know it's not easy. I have hard time keeping track of mine, but it is the least we can do.If we get a second chance to use this site again, I hope we do a better job keeping it clean. I will post on Saturday night whether or not we have the site again and when we can use it.Yours in service, Baron Master LawrenceBelow is Lady Siobhan's message about this last practice.==============================================================Greetings to all!
Please send this along to as many people as were there so that they know
about this. It is very important that we be more careful so that we can
keep our indoor site.
When I came in to work this morning I was taken aside by the maintenance
staff at T-M. It seems that someone put an entire roll of paper towels
into one of the toilets, and their aim wasn't all that good. Also a few
of the tables were covered with food detritus. It could only have been
Now I probably should have checked all this out, being the site rep, but
honestly I was surprised that it even happened at all. I have assured
them that this will not happen ever again.
Please back me up. If you bring food, drink, children, etc. to fight
practice, great. But please, this is not your house. If you use it,
please take care of it. I promise I will be more vigilant as well. If
we screw up, we're hosed.
