The Tournament of the Five Rings went very well. Had a great time meeting new people, crossing swords and drinking beer. There were people who attended from Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Arkansas and other areas of the Midwest. I got to meet Reece and Ben in person and as promised bought them a beer. I'm hoping to get them in STL soon for a Harnischfechten work shop. I spoke to Mark from STL HEMA Assoc. and he's down for such a thing. I'll keep everyone posted on those details.

Hmm, I'm not sure. I don't know him and I don't remember meeting an Adam but I didn't meet everyone neither.
