Fort Rd, South Portland, ME 04106
Marshal in Charge: Mat Wyck
This is a fair-weather-only Regional Rapier Practice held outdoors and oceanside at Southern Maine Community College’s Fort Preble in South Portland, Maine.
We will be fencing at Fort Preble, a seaside fort from the early 1800s. There are full fields for melees run by our own Morte of Malagentia and plenty of room for one on ones.
There are fun fort spaces where you can practice rapier as the weapons were used – in dingy alleys and dank doorways! All on the coast of beautiful Casco Bay.
In addition, we will feature a dedicated area for Cut and Thrust, with sufficient loaner gear if anyone wants to give it a whirl – courtesy of the ever competent and courageous Izzo Mark Frasier and Finan MacBressail!
This will be a fair-weather-only event – we will make the call by Friday noon whether or not we need to cancel due to expected rain, snow, etc.
If anyone wants to journey to Maine Saturday, I think a few of us could be persuaded to lead a tour of our fabu breweries, including but not limited to Mast Landing, Bissel Brothers, Foundation, Rising Tide and more!
See the Facebook event for updates and to RSVP.
