Don't forget: Tempio will be hosting Southern Regional Fighter Practice
(SRFP) at their usual fighter practice site on Sunday, August 16. It's a
pleasant, wide open park complete with public restrooms, water, covered
picnic space, playground for the kiddies, and barbecues.
This is a practice. There is no site fee.
Plan to start fighting about noon. Bring armor, your melee weapons of
choice, and--for the cooldown period following the fighting, bring a
side dish to share and a piece of something dead to toss on the

south, take I-35 to exit 299. Take a right turn off of the access road
onto highway . Go east to the 57th street exit (if you go under the
overpass, you've gone too far) and turn left onto 57th street. Pass one
traffic light and take an immediate right onto W. Avenue Z, which will
dead end at the park.

of melees. I'd like to see us *not* work in our accustomed subgroups.
We'll review the commands (I'm assuming *somebody* will remember the
commands) and then split the whole passel randomly for the ensuing
Why randomly? you ask.
Well, think back on Gulf Wars for a moment. When our troops got broken
up, they tried to reform as shire, barony, or household groups.
Sometimes that just doesn't work. If, on the other hand, we learn to
reform as Campoleon (I know, not an official name, but it'll make a cool
battle cry), we'll be able to regroup more readily, with a larger pool
I'd also like to do some work with groups on
*how to flank a unit,
*how to stop a flanking action, and
*how to confound attempts to stop a flanking action.
Unfortunately, since this is a public park, missile weapons will not be
