06/20 Fighter Practice: Heat Cancellation

Greetings fighters,

After consultation of weather sources and discussion, both chivalric and rapier practice for today are cancelled. We are sad to have to do so, but the safety of our populace is our foremost concern.

The heat index is expected to remain at levels dangerous for activity through the entirety of practice tonight, only dropping below 100F after 10PM. Even brief bursts of activity can result in heat injuries at such high heat indices.

From the National Weather Service:

The Excessive Heat Warning remains in effect for today through 9 PM on Wednesday. There is a possibility that a mix of Heat Warnings and/or Advisories will be needed later in the week into the weekend. High temperatures of 100 to 112 and maximum heat index values of up to 118 can be expected. Take precautions when outdoors in the heat.

As always, please feel free to contact any baronial officers if you have a suggestion for an indoor practice site!

In Service,
HL Nadja Ramthuner, Rapier Marshal
Ld. Valgard of York, Knights Marshal
