  >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 
>interesting tidbits:
  >*     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!!!
