This summer was one of the businest ones we've had in a long time. We spent about every weekend working on the renovations, going to an SCA event or getting ready for Pennsic.

Erik finally got authorized to fight "Heavy list" (that is fight in armour with rattan weapons) at Great North Eastern War this summer. He was the 6th youth fighter authorized, as they had just changed the rules to allow 17 year olds to fight. This was unexpected, as previously, you had to be 18 years old to fight. Needless to say, Erik has jumped into this sport with enthusiasm and focus.
Over the next few months, I am hoping to get some pictures up and catch up in all our happenings over the summer and early fall.
