Rapier vs Smallsword Exercise:
After some elimination rounds we will pit Team Rapier against the Team Smallsword to determine which really is the better weapon.
Friday Night Fights:
You asked for more time to free fight so we are planning on having an open floor for participants to get in a little practice time on Friday night.
Christoph Amberger has once again generously offered to comb his extensive collection for texts and manuals related to rapiers and smallswords. these will be available for viewing on Sunday.
Early Bird Rate, $150 will continue through 3/31/2017 then will go up to $200.
Rapierist are encouraged to come and defend their mistaken contention that size matters! Smallsworders novice and expert will find a collegial exchange of new ideas and perspectives to inspire their Smallsword studies.
