Greetings, Everyone!

Dale has asked me to announce that an informational meeting will take place THIS SATURDAY, MAY 12th, to discuss upcoming Sword Fighting classes. Location: Sleepy Hollow Sports Park lodge - 2nd floor - beginning at 1:00 PM. 4051 Dean Avenue, Des Moines.

The meeting should last less than an hour. Dale is the founder/director of the Swordfighting group, Canis Bellum and was the fight captain for the 2006 Des Moines Renaissance Faire. (as well as a GREAT tax collector!)

Dale would like to get information from everyone, find out what days/evening would be good for classses, let them know what to expect, and what equipment they will need to get started.
Dale plans to kick off the first class the first week of June. Please remember that everyone will be paying Dale directly for the classes - Festivals International and Sleepy Hollow Sports Park will NOT be subsidizing Dale's talents this season. Everyone will come away from the class with a new skill - one which can be honed and improved and marketed to the DM Renaissance Faire AS WELL AS other festivals around the Midwest. Dale will discuss prices with everyone at Saturday's meeting.
