      While this isn't in final form quite yet (I'm planning on
      a few tweaks for meter purposes, and possibly some additonal
      verses), this gives some idea of the rescheduled woods battle:

      Alamo Woods

      Remember the Alamo,
      Remember the East,
      And recall the Wood's slaughter,
      Where ravens now feast.

      Remember the valiant,
      The heroes who fell,
      With sworn honour their watchword,
      Of them stories tell.

      Remember the five banners,
      Control to be won,
      For to guard and to hold them,
      Our job to be done.

      Remember the endless foe,
      'Gainst poor counted few,
      The dark woods that ran blood-red,
      O'er allies of Blue.

      Remember the battlelines,
      We swore to cross,
      Remember the cunning plans,
      Despite which, we lost.

      Remember now your lessons,
      When racing to fight,
      One blade 'gainst two case will fall,
      Few Blue 'gainst Red's might.

      Remember to guard behind,
      'Gainst tricksters in red,
      For quiet and subtle find,
      One's comrades all dead.

      Remember the King's strong words,
      "Stories will be told!"
      Of those who fought and died there,
      The few, brave and bold.

      Remember the Alamo!
      Remember the East!

      Would it be possible to request a couple of tales of the fencing
      at Pennsic? How did it go?

      sidelined till October...
