Re: *WH* Shire of Cathanar Rapier Workshop

Poster: many waters cannot quench love <lisa@technomancer.com>

hi folks...  just a quick note on the rapier workshop this weekend: IT

cathanar and ravens' cove added three new rapier fighters to their
already-impressive (and apparently rapidly-growing) fighting force in the
morning, and in the early afternoon they had three rapier classes, and,
for the less martially-inclined, a calligraphy class. :) 

the tourney was an eleven-person round-robin, which was great fun and
enough fighting to satisfy even the most energetic among us...  and the
prize format - each fighter brings a prize, and then prizes are chosen at
the end by order of ranking - was great because every participant went
home with something nifty.  (i'll have to remember that for the next time
i run a tourney!) 

the feast was both ample and delicious (especially the home-made rye
bread!), altho it was cut short by thunder and lightning; we got
everything rapidly packed up under the threat of impending rain, which of
course made the rain go impend somewhere else.  father murphy must have
been most amused.  of course, it's better than getting soaked... 

vivats to the people of cathanar and raven's cove, for such a fun and
friendly event!  and the best part is, if you missed it this year, i think
they're planning to do it again next year... :)
