INVITATION: Chateau de Camville, residing in the lovely lands of the Shire of Mountain's Gate (El Dorado County California), is hosting its second Combative Arts Retreat on NOVEMBER 2-4, 2007. The focus of the weekend will be to improve the skill sets of the attendees. Each day will begin with fighting classes in the first part of the day and armored drills/focused sparring in the latter part of the day. Sunday we will conclude with a mock-tournament. Please note that this is not a "beginner class" and all attendees should have a basic grasp of the foundational skills used in armored combat. Attendees should have a complete suit of armor and their own weapons. For the newer fighter (still needs to have armor/weapons mind you-grin) a Friday Basics Review Class will be offered. Various guest instructors will also be on hand. If you missed the first Combative Arts Retreat in February don't miss this one!
