Ladies & Gentlemen,

Swordplay' 10

The weekend of Friday 3rd September to Sunday 5th September 2010.
Baden Powel Scout Park, Samford, Qld.

Swordplay 10, run by the Australian College of Arms, is a big swordfighting event with plenty of different schools focusing on metal weapons. There will be longsword classes and tournaments as well as sword and rapier tournaments. It was a great success last year and the tone of the event was extremely friendly with many different people interacting and playing happily together. If anyone wants to know more have a look at the Australian College of Arms website and email Scott MacDonald, as he's the organiser of the event. I'm looking for a couple of rapier fighters to go in the tourney and demonstrate our skill against all and sundry, so if anyone is interested please e-mail me and we'll sort it out.
