Archery Practice | Thrown Weapons Practice | Dance Practice | Youth Activities
We use "Fighter Practice" as a generic term for weekly meetings. Meetings are held Wednesday evenings from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm in the Whittier Center, 290 N 400 E, Logan, UT. These meetings include a mix of combat practices, Arts & Sciences classes, and Youth Activities.
Populace Meetings are usually held on 5th Wednesdays at 7:00pm, at Fighter Practice in the Whittier Center Gym. The next 5th Wednesday is March 30, 2016. There is usually fighting after the meeting is over.
Arts & Sciences
Arts & Sciences classes can be on any subject, skill, craft, or activity people would have done at any time pre-1600. If you would like to teach a class at Fighter Practice, please contact the Minister of Arts & Sciences, THL Cathryn Ann of Newbury. If you would like to teach a class for the youth of our Shire, please contact the Youth Minister, Lady Hallerna. There are also several guilds in the Shire where you can learn specific skills.
Officers' Meetings (aka Business Meetings) are held on the 2nd Thursday of each month. We especially like it when people who think they might be interested in being an Event Steward come to the business meetings. Talk to the Seneschal, Sir Bartholomew Hightower, for more information. We have several positions open, and always need deputies and event stewards.
The next officers' meeting may be sometime in November 2016, or not until January 2017, probably in USU Old Main Hall Room 416. All officers and event/feast stewards (and all those interested in what any of these jobs entail) should plan to attend. Contact the Seneschal for more information.
Requirements for the various fighting styles and their armor requirements can be found at the Artemisian Marshallate. If you have any questions about Heavy (or Armored) Combat, speak with Lord Aslak, the Knight Marshal.
The marshal for Rapier and Cut & Thrust combat is Drayden. Rapier combat is based on Renaissance dueling style, and is similar to Olympic Fencing, except in the round, without the timers, and on the duelists' honor. Cut & Thrust uses elements of both Heavy and Rapier fighting, and has its own armor requirements. Instructions for making a helm such as Dubhglas, then Rapier Marshall, brought on 3 November 2011 can be found at Historical European Martial Arts.
We currently do not have an Archery Marshall. The Artemisia Archer General is HE Master Bjorn Hrafnsson.
We will be having an Archery Excursion some Wednesday in June to Flora & Aggie's Farm, in place of the regular Wednesday meeting that week. Date (and other info) to be announced. Watch this space!
Thrown Weapons Practice
We currently do not have a Thrown Weapons Marshall. The Artemisia Deputy Marshall for Thrown Weapons is Lord John of York.
The fourth Wednesday is Dance Practice instead of Fighter Practice. It is still held from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm in the Whittier Center, 290 N 400 E, Logan, UT. We learn medieval dances, English Country dances, and folk dances to a mix of medieval and modern music.
Youth activities include Youth Combat, Arts & Sciences classes taught at a child's level, and fun and games. All youth ages 5-17 are encouraged to participate in the Page School and College of Courtly Graces. Acheivements in both programs are recognized in Court. If you would like to teach a class or lead another activity for the youth of our Shire, please contact the Youth Minister, Lady Hallerna.
