Iago has volunteered to make lunch for those that participate.The Province of Tree Girt Sea, Shire of Grey Gargoyles and Shire of Vanished Woods all officially practice at the Grey Gargoyles site every Sunday of the month. We call this the Ayreton Fighter Practice. Practices have been starting at 2p.
Sir Fern will be teaching The Basics of Heavy Fighting class. This is a class for beginners and a refresher course of basic moves. No armor needed--brand-new people are welcome. We will work on footwork, balance, range, aim and other things that don't require armor.
This practice is increasingly including a group of people who are doing arts and sciences. We certainly invite all people interested in working on or sharing their Arts and Sciences loves/projects to please come out and do so!
