Let me offer a fond "Welcome" as it is always nice to see new faces.   
I will be looking forward to meeting you at practice.

> Hello Everyone,
>      My name is Joe Barnes and I'm a long time resident of the area.  
> I'm 41 years old and am interested in seeing what Hellsgate is all  
> about. I've never been a member of the SCA but have been interested  
> in it since I was in high school. I went to a couple of the  
> Middleford Shire fighter practices and one event (can't remember  
> which) back in the late 80's. I was absolutely fascinated with it  
> all but never joined up. I remember getting my first "Black Pearl"  
> newsletter in the mail (that was way back before the  
> Internet..hehe). I poured through that piece of literature over and  
> over again.
>     I'm married and have two sons that visit me during Summer and  
> Christmas. They live in Florida with their mother. My wife sews and  
> teaches English style horse riding. She would attend the fighter  
> practice tomorrow with me but she is giving a couple of lessons in  
> College Station and won't be home in time.
>     I should mention also that I was just diagnosed with Type 2  
> diabetes last October. I'm getting it under control with diet,  
> exercise and medication. Before my diagnosis, I used to mountain and  
> road bike but have cut way back due to my body adjusting to more  
> normal blood sugar levels. Seems that excessive physical activity  
> drops my blood sugar quickly, which is good, but I'm still working  
> to figure out exactly what, how much and when to eat. I would like  
> to participate in heavy or rapier fighting but will just have to  
> figure out how it affects my blood sugar levels and compensate  
> accordingly. So if you see me chowing down on a Clif Bar or  
> something else tomorrow, its just time for my snack. :)
>    I've communicated with you Hospitalier and she has given me the  
> green light to come out tomorrow. Just wanted to introduce myself to  
> everyone first and look forward to meeting you all.
> Thanks,
> Joe
