If you have spoken with Patrick about starting smallsword, then the time is at hand. If you have not yet done so, you will need to purchase a glove for the off-hand. Also, a plastron is advisable for safety, and you may wish to consider an additional chest protector since some opponents may be using rigid double-wide épée blades. It appears we may be starting smallsword in the coming week.
Also, it is early in the month so it is time for dues.
