Michael of the Fray here, I thought that I would add to both Ld Ironwyrm
and Ld Lothair e-mails.
To those combat archers, who will be attending the fighter practice in
Steppes this Sunday, after the opening of the northern archery range at
Please bring your armor for practicing the movement drills and of
course your bows.
There are several reasons for this, it is for each of us who are combat
archers to become accustom to moving in the armor, even in this heat.
There are war events beside Gulf War that we can fight in.
The next war event is Gothic War on Labor Day Weekend. Last year, there
were open field and bridge battles, with siege engines on the field.
Plus, we have 3 Kings coming up later in the year as well (I know this
one will be cooler!).
The added benefit of wearing armor is discovering if the armor requires
adjustment and/or repair and not waiting to the last minute.
An excellent reason to be on the field with your bow in hand for
movement drill - the fighters will have a clearer picture of just who
all the archers are. I have found this to be very helpful on the
A added bonus for those archers who are "Heavy" or plan to become
combat archers - and plan to carry a secondary weapon onto the field.
Please bring your secondary weapon. This would be an excellent

best fighters in the Kingdom of Ansteorra, perhaps even in the knowne
A fighter is only as good as his/her opponent(s)!
Regardless, whether you are a "white diamond" or a heavy combat archer,
I have found that the fighters will answer questions and provide helpful
A last note to all who plan to attend, archer, fighter, supporters
and/or to those interest and wish to show their support of the heavy
fighter community in general.
It is "HOT", bring water, if possible to share!
And not to be forgotten:
To the rapier community and supporters, if you would care to join us at
the park in Carrollton. Then please come. Not knowing your schedule.
(Note - speaking as someone who stands on the sidelines, but knowing
several Fray who fight and/or who had fought this weapon style.)
To the A&S of both Steppes and Elfsea, come join us if possible.
I hope that I have extended an invitation to all concern and have not
missed anyone or group.
If anyone requires directions to the park in Carrollton, please respond
and will post them.
