RE: [serapier] RUM
- I love a lead-in....
The Rapier Show for the kids is scheduled for 9:30-10:30, right after we
have fun with tiles (mosaics)
What I would like to see covered is basics, such as, a very short history of
Rapier in Period, the armor we use and why, the forms we authorize in (who's
got the funniest soft parry?) and show some of the terminology that we use
(what is a parry and so on) and put on a couple of real fights, complete
with bows. Show them the Rapier style of Chivalry on the field. (hehehe)
We can then let them try it out, with a rapier pell as an opponent.
I tried to schedule it early enough in the morning, where it won't be too
hot, and everyone is awake. I also thought of Cameron's class at 11. Having
this at 9:30 or 9:45 would have everyone free to attend either Cam's or
Stefan's class at 11.
So, if anyone is willing to help out, lead or otherwise show up and
talk/fight/teach, just let me know. I have no idea how many will show, I
just tell you that it will be for 5 and up.

Not much sword-play is scheduled for RUM, but if you happen to be going, I
would like to have a hand in the kitchen with Breakfast! Yes, that early
morning thing. Tell your students I will personally run Authorizations at
RUM for anyone who helps out at breakfast. (I am certainly telling all MY
students that.) As for the rest of you, well, it is Air conditioned.

- Okay...apparently my ISP's web mail features don't work too
well...let's try that again...
This weekend will be Easaraigh's Thing in the Woods V. For those who
haven't heard, there WILL be rapier activities. We currently have a
Highwayman/woods scenario planned as well as our traditional
Centaur's Glade tourney.
In addition to rapier, we have heavy combat planned, classes, and the
Iron Bow guild will have a plethora of archery activities. We will
have breakfast, a fundraiser lunch, a sumptuous feast prepared by
Lady Margaret Northwode, and SNOW CONES! Traveller's fare will also
be available Friday night prepared by THL Faelen.
Thing in the Woods will be held and Camp Tubb in Rock Island, TN.
Directions and more can be found at:
Please note - there are multiple permutations of highway 70 in the
Cookeville/Sparta/Crossville area. 70S is not south on 70. So long
as that caveat is followed, the directions available via the website
and Google maps are accurrate.
If you have additional questions, my phone number is listed in the
Pop Chiv and on the website (sometimes it comes in handy being
married to the Seneschal and Feastcrat). Unfortunately, our hard-
drive is impersonating a paper weight at present, so it is doubtful
I'll get another chance to check email prior to the event.
See you there!
