We've suspended Swords on Sundays to keep up with social distancing requirements. We'll be sure to make an announcement once we're able to reopen!
This club is for anyone interested in boffering - the art and sport of hitting one another with foam padded weapons. In addition to duels and group melee, we often play games such as Troll! or Capture the Castle.
We strive for accuracy not strength or damage. So if you are looking to go all "Lancelot style" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPXG4pdPj4w), we are not your group. All of our events are run as a touch game rather than a contact sport. This is to ensure the the comfort of the broadest range of participants. As you gain skill you can fight tougher matches against some of our veterans knights.
We do not LARP or have characters nor do we participate in any official organizations such as Amtgard, etc.
We use Forged Foam Weapons (https://www.forgedfoam.com/?product_cat=full_contact)and provide loaner weapons to all new members, until you decide to purchase your own. If you have personal weapons that you would like to use, a organizer will inspect it before you are allowed to use it in combat. (thickness of foam, overall weight).
Knightly conduct is expected from all. No unwelcome combat, no foul language, etc and we are GLBTQIA friendly.
