Knee saga

Mar. 10th, 2015 11:04 pm
Gentle Readers,

For this of you who are following the saga of my injured knee (assuming anyone is reading this at all), you will be happy to know that I was able to fence for the first time since the injury on Saturday. It was at our Winter War event and I had a delightful time.

I was fighting in place of free scholars who were unable to attend so that some other fenders could play their prize and become free scholars.

It was fun and everyone fenced really well and very much earned their new rank.

There was some stupid drama where people were surprised that the rules were being followed and applied to them.

I think the highlight of the event was someone reverting to his highness wanting to fence people, presumably to test them for suitability for the new peerage, as an audition. I'm still chuckling at that.

I've had a number of people tell me that they think I should be one of the first fencing peers of Ealdormere and while I'm flattered and would desperately love that I also know that I'm not currently at a place where I deserve it. To be honest, I don't think anyone in the kingdom, with one exception, is at that level. Whoever it is is going to have to be able to go route to toe with the best fencers in the known world. We just don't have that right now. Maybe with six months of enthusiasm, but not currently.

Time to get practising, I guess.
