Wow, good question. I haven't been on the forum as much lately either (bad, BAD knight commander!). Way too much going on in my outside life this year.

From the medieval perspective, those of us here in the DC region had a good Passage at Arms at Longpoint this year, and the VARF demos went well. I haven't posted a summary for VARF yet, so I should do that.

We moved from Reno, NV to Wakefield, MA (Boston suburb) last August for my wife to take a job at Boston Logan, and in 2 weeks we are moving to Raleigh, NC for her to take a job at North Carolina State University. In fact we will be passing very close to where Ian, Ed, Brian, and James live, and passing by where Shawn lives in New Jersey.

Not on nearly as much since I can't get on at work any more, and my commute is doubled at my new job. Also, the whole moving, engagement, and wedding next week thing.

MD Faire is coming up in a few weeks.

As Ed said, Passage at Arms at Longpoint was cool. I won third place, and our own Sir Brian won first place! (The first first place for the Order!)

I won third place...

That was hilarious when you reminded Bill F. that you now had TWO 3rd place medals from the Passage-at-Arms!  ;D

Mark from the STL HEMA Assoc. emailed me with news that there will be a tournament at the KC Renn Faire September 23 for longsword, rapier, small sword and saber. I'm awaiting further details.
