Fighter Practice, Parramatta Park, Sundays 2pm

Hi everybody,

A few of us who live in western Sydney and struggle to make it to the regular Rowany practice because of work/family commitments have decided to have a fighter practice every couple of weekends. We will try to ensure that it does not clash with the Rowany war practices.

The first practice will be held at Parramatta Park on Sunday 30 August from 2pm.

Thanks, Chuck (Sir Jock Mactavish)

New Rowany Marshal sought

Greetings from Sigvaldr Sviðandi, Rowany Marshal

As I must soon stand down from my position as Rowany Marshal, I am looking for a brave soul to stand up and take over this task. Until I am able to step down, this position will be a deputy to work on handover together and bring you up to speed on anything you need to know. This position includes liaising with Rowany Senate, Seneschal, and Kingdom Earl Marshal on any martial matters you or they deem of interest.

The Marshal is in charge of combat-related activities. Your charter will be to promote armoured and missile combat, and to work with the Rapier Marshal as needed to promote both fields of combat. You will be part of the appeals and reporting chain for incidents and events under the Rowany banner and her sub-groups, such as Stowe and St Ursula.
You do not have to be an authorised Marshal or Senior Marshal, but it does help.

If you wish to volunteer or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Sigvaldr Sviðandi
