Class Suggestion - Recruiting
- Greetings Esteemed Fencers of the West,
In an earlier post Provost Staffan Arffuidsson inquired about class
I have noticed the proposed classes are mostly aimed at members of
the Fencing community. While this event provides a good opportunity
for our own development, there will be many of the populace who would
not receive as much benefit from these more advanced classes.
I would like to humbly submit that Collegium is a GREAT time to
recruit new fencers.
I have requested the first time slot of the day from Mistress Donata
for an 'Introduction to Rapier' class.
Hopefully the un-initiated who are curious about Rapier will take the
Intro class in the morning and then have a foundation for either
taking classes throughout the day or at least attending their local
It has been my experience that recruiting is literally twice as
effective if there is a Lady instructor as well, so if any of the
most excellent West Kingdom Lady Fencers would like to co-host this

Lastly, I would like to take out a full page ad in the "Page" for the
Rapier aspects of this years Spring Collegium. If you would like
your classes listed in this ad please email me the title of your
class, a brief description and the time slot.
Dar Hightower used to say for every hundred you talked to, you were
lucky to get three. I love a good challenge.
Yours in Service,
