From Distant Shore! Looking at the weather forecast for this evening, looks like the rain is coming here starting between 4 and 5 in Truro. So with that in mind, we will not be holding practice tonight. Here’s hoping for next week!
Wednesday Rattan Practices in Distant Shore will resume this week after the TS Teddy cancelled last week’s practice. This week’s Marshal in Charge will be Syr Yesungge as Baron Perceval is not available. Same practice rules apply!
“What’s that you say? Fight practice? Okay, let’s meet in Victoria Park in Truro. Regular start time of 6 PM till we are all done!” ~ Syr Yesungge
Due to the predicted High Winds and Rain associated with the landing of Hurricane / Tropical Storm Teddy on Tuesday and Wednesday this week, Baron Perceval has cancelled the outdoor practice in Victoria Park for this week.
Practices will resume next week, look for the reminders on the Canton’s facebook page
WHERE: Victoria Park, Truro, NS WHEN: Every Wednesday 6pm-dark
MIC: Baron Perceval Gower, OP
Distant Shore has restarted Fighter Practices, every Wednesday 6pm – until Dark, in Truro’s Victoria Park by the Amphitheater. Lots of space to sit and watch, but bring a chair or blanket to sit on. We will be asking everyone wear their masks when not fighting and please maintain social distancing as per NS Health regulations. There will be the standard forms such as waivers for non-members and we will be taking names for a Covid tracing record. Please remember to bring your blue membership card, and your fighter card.
Marshall In Charge is Baron Perceval Gower:
“There shall be no loaning or swapping gear and the new inspection protocol is in place I can show the marshals and fighters that are unfamiliar. no sharing of food or water, there will be a sign in sheet that the Baroness shall ask for your name and contact info for contact tracing and masks shall be worn if you do not have a helmet on your head. Its gonna be fun BUT if there is any reason you cannot or will not follow these rules then don’t come.”
Our Baroness Admiranda sees this as an excellent recruiting opportunity, and is encouraging anyone out of armour to wear garb
So come out and join the Canton of Distant Shore, bring your own water/Gatorade supply and be prepared to have fun!

Our first practice, Sunday 16 February 2020 from 1pm – 4pm, now has the offer of a Rapier Marshal as HL Barnabus O’ Phelylan of Avonmore has offered up his time to allow our baroness to train. Hooray!
The site is open at 1pm, please bring indoor shoes if the weather is wet, as our own Balen Malinovski will be leading the clean up team at the end of practice.
Safe travels and see you mid February!
Recently, through the suggestion, and assist, of m’lord Balen Malinovski, we have been able to obtain permission to use a local school gymnasium to hold month Fighter Practices. Our first practice will be held Sunday 16 February 2020 from 1pm – 4pm
The gymnasium at the school in Great Village is a very large space. There is plenty of room, as well as tables available, so that you could bring your projects to work on. We hope that you will come out share what you are making!
Monthly Rattan Fighter Practice – Great Village Elementary Gymnasium 8849 Highway 2. Great Village NS. – Sunday, 16 February 2020 1 pm – 4 pm. Please bring indoor shoes if the weather is wet.
Marshal In Charge: DS Knight’s Marshal Syr Yesungge Altan
We are going to try to get in at least one more practice before the snow covers the field and the temps drive us all to indoor activities.
Come out for an afternoon of practice with you knives, axes and spears, join in the Royal Rounds and (if time allows) I have a new novelty throw planned.
Remember that snow makes it really hard to find weapons so this will be weather dependant. Weather willing, I hope to see lots of folks out for one more afternoon of throwing!
Marshal In Charge: Syr Yesungge Altan – Facebook event can be found HERE
This Friday is the monthly A&S and general populace meeting in the Community Room at Sobeys on Robie Street in Truro. All are welcome. Bring a project! 7pm-9pm
