We finished off the year with our best "Fight Night" yet, with seven combatants including one new authorisation, and one visitor from Christchurch. After some warm-ups, we rotated pairs (single rapier, single kill) until everyone had fought everyone else, then a straight king-of-the-hill. After a break for water, we continued the king-of-the-hill format, but with any weapons combinations. Hopefully, this got us into the right frame of mind for the Baronial Rapier Championship on the Sunday.
We will, of course, continue to play over the summer; but in a more informal, off-and-on basis (email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to receive invitations to fence during the summer break). Regular classes will return Tuesday the third of February, 2015.
