Humid has become the watch word of the Day
Spring seem to be the in the air
Yet the King Winter still waits his coronation
To start his time
To mark the days until that of Princess of Spring
To arrive upon the scene
Trees are highlighted not in Green
But by their stark limbs
Yet some remain clothed with that of leafs
Promise of Cold and Wet are there
With a of Winter in a Mix in the wings

The day was righteous and upright
Time best spent outside - truckin' toward
Armor and that of Rattan
Instruction provide by Sir Morgan and Lord Hosey
While a Demo involving Combat Archery
Issued by invitation of those who frequent the park
To the lone Combat Archer in attendance
Result - new individuals ask and receive information

Currently - there will be a practice next Sunday per
Lord Hrafn - Steppes Knight Marshal.
Some will have family and travel plans to deal with
not to mention that last minute shopping. What could be
better method of dealing with the stress of holiday shopping?
- come out, get together and have a few laughs, put on
armor and swing a little rattan!

Please start drinking extra water several days prior to the day
of practice.
This is also true of going to an event, be it SCA related or not.
You will have a better time and enjoy yourself more
if you are hydrate before you start your activity.

Energy drinks may give you a lift, but will not carry you as far,
when compared to water and gatorade.

Remember - Pace yourself!

Everyone needs to bring water to the park. I would recommend
the following:

Please bring at least 1 gallon or more of water and gatorade
to replenish your energy levels if you are in armor and fighting.
Suggested of items you might wish to bring out:
- cold pickles
- oranges - energy bars - etc...
- Bring Chairs for you to sit upon.
- Sunscreen, a bright sun with some wind and...
- Hats
- This time of year - blankets
