A Challenge from Baron Eldjarn
The holidays are well over. They days are growing longer and we’re fortunate to enjoy the occasional warmer day too. College of 3 Ravens is fast approaching. Her Excellency and I are extremely pleased to see the quantity and variety of classes scheduled at Thescorre’s traditional schola event, including a number involving martial arts instruction, too. It’s great to have sparring and tournaments often, but it is also good to remember there are newer combatants on the sidelines eager for instruction in everything from the basics to more advanced techniques. Both adults and youth fighters will benefit greatly from the opportunities and encouragement offered at C3R, especially from experienced fighters.
As activities in Arts and Sciences thrive at various practices and gatherings, the consistent warmer days soon to come compel me to issue a challenge to our Barony members. Your Baron would like to see everyone (barring unavoidable restrictions) during the course of this year, participate in a Martial activity they do not currently have a rank or status in. Go out and get in at least three Royal Rounds in archery or thrown weapons. Go avail yourself of the loaner gear for heavy weapons or fencing, suit up and spar on three or more occasions with the knowledgeable combatants willing to teach the ins and outs of their discipline.
In the Middle Ages it was required by English law for men and boys of a certain age to practice archery weekly to achieve the skills required to put forth a strong army. We are not going to such lengths as those, but I would be thrilled to see everyone achieve a new level of skill in combat this year, if they are able. For whatever reason, if you cannot take active part in any Martial art, please come support those who do – it is a great social time that brings Thescorreans closer to one another.
It would be grand to see a significant number of the populace able to assemble at Pax or Pennsic and put fear into the hearts of any would be invaders of our industrious Barony. But most of all, some may find new joy in a previously untried activity! So please heed this request and let’s see how many new smiles and new rank badges we can collectively create. 🙂
Dubheasa and I hope to see many new participants and many new Arts and Sciences entries at Baronial Champs in May!
