As the RMIC for the upcoming Fall Coronation of TRH Nigel and Adrielle, I thought I would send some details about what we will be doing. I've added some elements to help tie the rapier to Their preferred period, so I hope lots of people will be out and will have fun.

Each fencer will have a number of tokens to start the day, and the fencer with the most "ransom" tokens at the end of the day will win a really good prize that I've been saving for a special occasion.
