many apologies for the delay; my workflow is slow and real life job kept me busy this week... but here are my photos from the event (they're in 4 albums for ease of sifting and browsing) Part I - the 2 Courts

Off topic, yet location relevant: I am still missing a hat from the last event at that site (Heralds & Scribes). It's linen, has lucet cord ties, is is reversible in a neutral and blue with a black and raspberry colored stripes (depending on which side it's on). If anyone knows the whereabouts or sees it somewhere, please let me know. Thanks!

Originally was planning on coming; but I'm covering for someone at work, 'cause I'm taking Easter Sunday off. I'll shoot for the next event. Have a glorious day everyone!

Greetings! I am still feeling a bit on the fatigued side so while I will be at the event tomorrow I may only do a little fencing. I do plan to bring my camera and take lots of pictures (to make up for failed shooting at Ædult Swim... don't ask). I have a question for instructors: would you mind if I stopped by during your classes to take a few photos? I will make every attempt to not pose as a distraction. Please feel free to comment here or PM me if you prefer to not have photos taken during your class and I will happily respect your request :)
