"North of the Border" Fencing Fest VIII

5 - 7 August A.S. XLVI (2011)
Willoughby Vale (Ipswich)
Rapier Training and Tournament weekend.

Fencing Fest is a total weekend devoted to the Arts of Defence. Spread over just over two days will be training sessions, and a tournament, a relaxed weekend of fencing and feasting. The weekend will start with a discussion night on the Friday night before the event starts, included in the standard price. This will be used to finalise the program for the weekend. Breakfast and lunch is served on both days, with a feast of simple foods on the Saturday night.
Once again, back by popular demand, the event t-shirts available for a price of $25 per shirt, please order these when you book (Bookings for t-shirts will close 22 July 2011). Further information can be gained by contact with the Steward.

This weekend is open to all ladies and gentlemen who have an interest in the Arts of Defence. Current and future combatants, those who wish to watch and those who wish to learn. There should not be a time during the weekend where an enthusiastic lady or gentleman cannot find something interesting to learn or do. Need to brush-up on a weapon form? Want to learn something about a weapon form? Interested in rapier but did not know where to start? This is your best chance to get all of these things done. More to the point it is the chance to fence, and fence amongst others with the same interest.
