Brothers and sisters Northshield --
I hope the long winter months find you all well and eagerfor the coming seasons of spring and melee combat. As this letter reaches youmy tenure as KEM will be coming to a close, I would like to thank all those whomade this a very enjoyable job to do, and all my deputies who made most of thework possible.
Now, on to business: The Society Earl Marshal has made arule change regarding fiberglass spears. 2” rubber “Mandrake” two-handed thrustingtips are now an acceptable thrusting tip on a fiberglass spear as long as allthe disks included are used. You will still need the end cap on the spear butthis will replace the 3” foam constructed tips. Northshield is at Society minimumfor this weapon’s construction and so these also will be legal to use here. Ifyou have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me.
Please remember to enjoy whatever martial activity youchoose to participate in safely and with such joy that all around you can’thelp but want to join you. Oh, and as this past weekend has reminded me, stretchoften and well.
