>Hello Elfsea and Steppes!
>Now that we have several months of practice behind us I was hoping to
>give the populace of this area a quick update in the form of some
>* Last night we had 21 fighters practicing on the heavy field(s)
>alone. This is especially notable due to the fact that more than a few
>"regulars" were not in attendence. I find it very reasonable to expect
>that we can easily acheive a practice with 30 or more soon- if these
>levels of Metroplex support and interest maintain the same path.
>* Another notable fact about last night's practice is that 5
>members of the Chivalry attended and fought.
>* This practice is starting to become fully embraced by members
>of the Steppes populace as well. Sir Morgan and Count Gunthar are
>commonly seen at practice.
>* We have had several visitors from out of the area visit multiple
>times, including Duke Kein, Sir Jean Paul and Sir Owen.
>* We have assisted in the armoring of several new fighters. As of
>next week all new fighters will be entirely on the field.
>* We have been notably successful in assisting multiple fighters
>who have fought for many years , but that have been dissatisfied with
>the progression of their skill, to make significant advances in their
>prowess. This is of great interest in that 3 months of training doesn't
>commonly override a decade of problems!
>* It has been the consensus opinion of the Chivalry that have
>attended for the last month or so that this practice might actually have
>become one of the premier practices in the SCA...although there are a
>few famous venues in California, Michigan and Phoenix we are DEFINITELY
>pushing for a spot in the top five!!!
>To conclude, I would like to remind all my fellow Metroplex
>Ansteorrans that this practice is open (and WELCOMES!) fighters of ALL levels of
>experience. When you attend you will be given individual instruction
>by an expert fighter and trainer. You will also instantly see that the
>collection of people at this practice have a great time and are
>developing exellent friendships and comeraderie. We would invite you to come
>share in building this practice for the greater glory of Steppes,
>Elfsea and ANSTEORRA!!!
