This past summer at the Forge, we were delighted to see a steady increase and larger attendance than ever noted before during summer classes. On the good weather days, we made use of the field outside our training hall, as it can get dangerous inside with 20+ people swinging longswords. Always we are happy when new people stick around and show keen interest in developing their training, as it only makes our little club stronger! As the season changes once again, we look forward to seeing how the club and its members develop.
As always, we had a great time this past weekend at the Calgary Expo. At the Sabreforce booth, anyone could sign-up to challenge Jimmy to a sabre duel …and the Forge displayed HEMA demonstrations at the Coke Stage or Weadickville field every day, no matter the weather. We hope to see some new faces at our next Thursday class!
