Better late than never.  Please read below and tell me what you think about

Take care,


What I am thinking about doing is hosting a tourney
>as close to the London
>Masters of Defence tourney as possible.  After a

>tourney that involved the
>fighters using both light and heavy weapons but that
>would limit the fighter
>pool because not everyone can fight light or heavy
>(and vice versa.)  What
>would you all recommend?  I know that a LMoD tourney
>involved rapier
>fighting but also involved fighting with a great

>I have been thinking lately to have this tourney set

>me and if you don't think so please tell me why you
>think that.
