      Skeldergate Rapier Practice Report 1 Oct'09

      Attendees: Gareth Cambell, Rusulka Galbraith, Sebastian of Greenwood,
      Jocelyn Cranewall

      Fencers brought donuts and water. Jocelyn & Sebastian started the evening
      looking over period manuals.

      Lots of good," let's get back in the game" vibe going on amongst the rapier
      combatants tonight. Can't comment to the armoured combatants, they were
      practicing outside and I saw none of thier fighting.

      This reporter went a round with each of the other three and by the end felt
      like I'd held my own. Although two hard shots to another opponent made me
      admit that I was getting sloppy, tired and it was time to stop.

      Sebastian of Greenwood re-did all of his authorizations, including spoon and
      bowl, Gareth and Rusulka to follow up with paper work and drop test of
      Sebastian's armour. I am happy to report, after some time away, Sebastian's
      Lunge is no longer "Ugly" as previously reported. Any form from Giganti
      would just simply enhance this gentles game. He's also really tightened up
      his defence to the point of being artistic. So heed this warning and gift
      this gentle some respect when met on the list, I don't believe he'll give
      anyone any quarter.

      Rusulka was dusting off her skills last night. While that might mean
      re-associating her muscle memory, mass and some cardio, in this reporter's
      eyes she just simply got back on the metaphorical bicycle. With more
      consistent practice, she'll be in form in short order. She commented about
      pain in her shoulder, which in hindsight, might have resulted from gripping
      the blade to tightly. This is something to think about in future practices.

      Gareth was also dusting off his skills as Sebastian's authorization partner.
      No change in form of this combatant, still fighting flat footed and from
      instinct fuelled by self preservation (which makes us all work harder to try
      and get him). This reporter tried a round with him using sword and dagger
      which was generally amusing.

      Some conversation about an Italian master named Fabris. All agreed, the
      defence was good, the endurance and musculature to perform the opening
      stance, exhausting.

      Next week, hopefully more of the same

      Jocelyn
