IMPORTANT MESSAGE!!!

Hello Fencers!

There is soon to be a new update to the Society Rapier rules that will require off the head helmet inspection. Padding or an appropriate suspension system will be required from the time it is published. Start checking your gear now to update it before it is mandatory.

The details can be found here: http://rapier.eastkingdom.org/from-the-master-laertes-deputy-society-marshal-rapier/

“When I was a boy I dreamt of being Robin Hood on one of the Merry Men’s epic swashbuckling adventures. In my mind I was in the tower getting shot at by archers, vanquishing Guy of Gisborne in the forest and saving the lives of those who could not fight for themselves. Almost every later hero, from D’Artagnan to Zorro to Scaramouche owes a great debt to those Robin Hood tales of derring-do (daring to do). Even Mal, the anti-hero, picks up a sword at some point in his adventures.

Ever since, I always wanted a chance to pick up a sword “with the gift of laughter and a sense that the world was mad” but without the bloodshed. The SCA has given me that chance, and I know my friends and I would love to share the love of steel with you. “
