[AET] Combat Symposium III

Brace your selves for a combat extravaganza of heavy combat and fencing that will blow your mind. Bring your sword and armor for a day of teaching and learning. Classes will be hands on and catered to the students in attendance. Those without armor, fear not: there will be a place for hands-on help building armor, hopefully with enough time to finish before Sunday's regional fight practice. There will also be an armor garage sale, so bring the extra armor you have just lying around, slap a price tag on it and see if you can get someone else to take it home!

Directions: From the west: Find your best route to Interstate 86. On I-86, go east until you reach Olean's Buffalo Road exit (the first Olean exit, Exit 25). At the bottom of the ramp, turn right toward town. Go under the train tracks. At the second stoplight (Country Fair will be on your right), turn right onto North 12th Street. Go straight until 12th Street ends in a T-intersection with West State Street (Route 417). Turn right. You're going five blocks to South 17th Street. The Mountain View Xtreme Youth Center is housed in the former Showers United Methodist Church on the corner of South 17th and West State Streets (it still looks very much like a church). There is parking on the right side of S. 17th St.
