Hello!

Do you know how and why rapier combat in the SCA began?  How about where
the very first Ansteorran rapier duel took place and who the combatants
were?  Or, what was the first rapier combat award originally called?  Find
out these answers and more at the Second Annual (sort of) Rapier Reunion!

Conner Craig (Lord Conor Drummond) and Steve Hemphill (Don Eule von
Haginbald) would like to invite you to a mundane party/BBQ for participants
and friends of the rapier community!

This is a chance for us to get together and celebrate "The Swashbuckling
Game" in the SCA.  Many old and new friends from around the Knowne Worlde
have already confirmed their attendance.  Come visit with some of the
"Founding Mothers and Fathers" of the rapier game we play in the SCA!  This
is a great opportunity for us to hear and tell old stories and new, meet
some of the "Old Guard" and in turn show them how far we have taken their
dreams.

This is a mundane party which will be held at Steve and Dawn's "country
estate" so they have *lots* of room to spar if you want to bring your gear
(and please do!).  Also, since we want our friends to have a pleasant but
safe time, feel free to bring along things with which to crash.  They have
a big house, but indoor crash space may be limited depending on how many
folks decide to stay.  However, please feel free to bring a tent just in
case (Steve and Dawn are happy to have tents set up on their property).
Also, the closest motels can be found in Cedar Park (about 9 miles away)
and Georgetown (about 10 miles away).  Also, please RSVP (not required but
it will be helpful) to Steve at producer at us.ibm.com so he can get an idea
of numbers.

When:  November 30th ­ December 1st, 2002
Time:  12n Saturday until whenever you leave on Sunday
Where:  Steve and Dawn Hemphill's (Eule and Ariella) house (directions
below)
Who:  You, and any friends you can drag along

What do you need to bring?
Stuff to play with, something to eat (something for the grill, a side dish
and snacks), something to drink, any old pictures, videos (a VHS vcr will
be available) and songs to sing or stories to tell, and if you want to camp
overnight, your camping gear.
