06/27 Fighter Practice: Heat Delay; 4th of July Holiday

Greetings fighters,

The heat index is still hot this week, but should be dropping this evening. The marshals have consulted, and we are delaying the start of practice until 8PM. We are still under a Heat Advisory until 9PM.

Please take it slow and easy, and hydrate aggressively before, during, and after practice. Take breaks frequently, including loosening armor and removing your helm/mask. You can read more about heat injuries and SCA fighting in this very blog, “Marshal’s Corner: Heat Safety“.

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

Additionally, there will be no fighter practice next week on July 4th. Please enjoy the holiday, and stay cool!

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