Medals and Stabbing New Friends

A busy weekend, but let’s recap last weekend first of all.The eventual WSG medallists at the Helsinki Open were:

  • Sasha: Gold Rapier and Dagger
  • Piermarco: Silver Rapier and Dagger
  • Michela: Gold Women’s Longsword

Congrats also to James and Masha, who represented the group and fought valiantly. WSG is now #2 in the Nordic League’s Club Ranking, which is pretty awesome for being in the wrong geographic area!

This weekend we were visited on Saturday by Jonathan Burke from the Lionheart HEMA club in Taiwan, who’s on a tour of the UK. He fought almost everyone attending at least once. He took his (literal) bumps with good grace, too, after in-advisably closing on our pet Ringen-Rancor.

Several WSG regulars (Peter, Jamie, Claudia) journeyed to the home club of semi-regulars Tea and Merlin – Cambridge HEMA. Jack Gassmann led a seminar of sparring games followed by several hours of sparring. Fun *and* educational!
