Thanks for posting this Lloyd!

We will be focussing on wrestling, dagger, and single hand sword work as interpreted by Mr. Charron.

Best wishes-

Never a problem, my friend.

I plan on attending, but I am going to be late - we are having a small fundraiser for our nonprofit (to help pay for our bigger fundraisers - funny how that works out...) but I will be in the car and headed to Janesville right after we are done.

Oh, BUMMER. Too far from Cincinnati! Sad Otherwise you'd see me there in a heartbeat. Fiore dei Liberi is one of my favorites to read about and learn from.

For those who are going, if you guys could post a forum on how it was and what you learned afterwards that would be awesome. Best of luck! -Ted

Well, I'd say it wasn't that bad. But then again, I travelled from Northern Colorado to Denton, Texas for a similar seminar back in 2003. Worth every bit of time, energy and money. You'll not have anything closer except for ISMAC, in August, in Lansing, MI and then you only get 4-5 hours of Fiore taught by Bob Charron. This is a great opportunity and a very cool focus to take on Fiore's giant body of work.

Thanks Keith. I agree that Bob's instruction time is worth every cent and mile I go. We are trying to keep this event as cost effective as possible, as we know its not the most popular of places to have an event. As I said we still do have a few slots left so if you are interested contact me as soon as you can!

Still a couple of seats open! We've manage to secure a facility with lots of mats for wrestling work as well as practice with sword!

Yes, but I haven't had the chance to get them up on the website yet (as we are planning on consolidating the two websites into a single one shortly).

Looking for anything in particular? Big Grin

Oh, and Chris, I am not going to be able to make it. We just picked up another Faire (the Cambridge Faire SE of Madison) and will need to be working the horses the rest of the weekend. Tell Bob hi from me.

Sorry to hear it Lloyd, but glad to hear about the other event! I still need to find some time to talk to you about other period portrayals. Your new group sounds interesting!

We would love to have a bunch of St. Mike's join us! (I still need archers!)

Just a reminder that we still have a few spots open for this event. We have decided to keep the cost to $50 for WMA enthusiasts.

Please contact me as soon as possible if you are interested!
