The Starkhafn School of Defense will be offering a Rapier Practicum on March 31 and April 1, 2007 in Starkhafn. The Practicum will be held at the Nevada State Museum and Historical Society in Lorenzi Park, 700 Twin Lakes Drive, Las Vegas, Nevada, 89107. The site will open at 8:00 Saturday morning and close at 5:00, followed immediately by a Social evening at the Museum. The site will open again at 8:00 on Sunday morning, with classes running until 2:00. Instructors will be drawn from Caid, Artemisia and Atenveldt, as well as the West, the Midrealm and An Tir.
Activities will include lab and field time on subjects being taught, plus an all day Accolade Tournament. Instructors will cover materials in class, followed by field time to practice in combat situations.
Site fee will be $10 for members and $13 for non-members, for the two days. The fee includes a luncheon on Saturday and some refreshments at the Social. Please make checks payable to SCA Inc./Barony of Starkhafn.
