I'd like to thank everybody who came out to join me (or attack me) in these 
two melees.

>From Princess Etain, who traveled from Oertha and fought on my side, to 
Lord Fiacha the Blue (now a Centurion), who does not fight with rapiers but 
asked to walk onto the field with me anyway (and wound up holding my 
banner), to Lord Brian O hUilliam, who struck the final blow for Gilwell in 
both melees, to all the others whose names I unfortunately didn't get, I 
had great support from a lot of sources.  And our team faced a strong force 
for the world.

Special thanks to Lady Jaquelinne Marguerite de la Ryver and Baron Enoch 
Crandall MacCranon, who marshaled for us.

The challenge was fought twice, once with HR and once with epees, so 
everybody could take part.

And Gilwell won them both.  It's great to be able to do at age 53 what I 
first did at 24.

I'd like a list of all particpants.  If you fought, please email me at 
rudin at ev1.net, and tell me which side you fought on.

Thanks again.  I had a great time.
