Tivar asks -

How are we lowering our standards?

To which I respond -

By keeping epee and foil on the books. I say that without any negative
connotation outside of the readily apparent fact that our current rapier
simulators, the ones that basically everyone everywhere in the SCA uses
regularly with some few exceptions, are so clearly superior to epee and
foil that those latter blades look quite out of place on our field.

Epee and foil are fossils of our past. I see no good reason to continue to
provide a rules infrastructure, marshal training, and authorization
bureaucracy in place to support them.

it is good to know, it is better to do, it is best to be.
