Regional Fight Practice

The Shire of Sterlynge Vayle invites our friends and neighbors to join us for our weekly fight practice and picnic in Otsiningo Park on Sunday, July 15, 2007. This will be a very relaxed get together for fighting, eating and socializing with our friends.

We will begin gathering around noon, and will go until people are tired of fighting. Please come join us to share stories and swordplay. If you know of anyone who is interested in checking out SCA fighting for the first time, this will be the perfect opportunity. Please bring any loaner gear that you may have for newcomers. This will be in a beautiful public park, so there will probably be people wandering over to watch the fighting and maybe ask some questions. Garb is strongly encouraged. We will provide meats to cook on the grill ? hamburgers, hot dogs, and sausages, as well as rolls, fixings, and ice. Please bring your picnic gear, a dish to pass, and drinks. Location:
Shire of Sterlynge Vayle (Binghamton , New York)
