I was able to attend two stellar rapier events this month that I highly recommend. One was Provost Challenge in Coldedernhale. What an intense time of competing and learning. Congratulations to Lord Martin of Noirguarde for winning that tournament. I also attended a Day of Fencing in Silfren Mare. Despite the occasional rain it was one of the most fun scenarios I have ever participated and one of the most fabulous sites.
Don Guage is moving to the West Kingdom. I thank him for his hard work and service as my Woodlands Regional. I wish him luck in his new endeavors. Don Mateo though will be the new Woodlands Regional. I have every confidence in his abilities and he will also be continuing service as my falcon deputy.
As of this writing, we are waiting for final approval of our new rules. More to come next month!
