This is the 3rd and final portion of the giveaway. This one's for New Years. To enter just leave a New Years message naming a hope for the coming year. I'll keep this thread open until midnight PST, Dec. 31st. Looking forward to seeing your submissions.
I've got a number of hopes, but I'll share a frivolous one. I hope an iron meteorite just small enough not to cause any real damage (to my house, anyway) lands in the alley behind my yard. If so, I'll hack it up into chunks and share them around with y'all. Space swords are cool.
In the new year of 2019, I hope to finally take some well-deserved and much-needed vacation time. I wouldn't mind just staying home, and relaxing. My family has asked me to go on vacation with them, though. I kind of doubt I'll go so far afield, but Carcassonne, Madrid, and Vienna are really high on my dream destinations. Maybe NYC will have to do. In any case, I need a vacation!
For 2019 I hope to learn enough Spanish to communicate more efficiently with my groups of bilingual students to increase their success in school. Tired of seeing them be passed on with the thought that they don't matter as so many others have done to them!
For 2019, I hope for the best when it comes to family and loved ones,and to remember to take time to stop and look at the beauty and wonder of this world. this time of year I always reflect on how quickly it has went by, so I just want to enjoy every day as much as I can

By the end of 2019 I want to be able to run two miles in 15 and a half minutes, do 45 pushups in 2 minutes, do 60 pushups in 2 minutes, and be generally more in shape. Sword - wise, I want more 19th century sabres and I want my castille rapier to arrive. I'd also like to attend some HEMA tournaments and SCA events. I went to two last years and they were fun.
As to everyone else - have a good new years and a successful and fulfilling years' end and 2019.
For 2019 I hope to be able to keep working with my current team, and I hope my family has a good year for health. I also hope my friends and family find themselves in places that they'll be able to enjoy, and that my grandfather especially gets to enjoy his retirement facility more than he did this year.

Veerdin: Anybody know anywhedre that has a reasonably priced smallsword (prefferably with scabbard) for sale? The CS one is sold out everywhere I can see except a massively overpriced one on ebay and not even the Depeeka ones seem to be available anywhere.

eastman: I have seen SCA dueling with rapier and rubber chicken, so there is a precedent for parry-poultry

eastman: would make for an odd fencing style - rapier and parrying turkey

eastman: thankfully I've never had a sword fight while carving a turkey, but there are 2 Kaskara by the kitchen doorway

nerdthenord: My three year old video game post keeps getting used for SEO scam spam, how odd.

yose: Powerpressed... Thank you for your message. The mekugi should have been put in from the omote side, I guess. They are half hidden by the tsukamaki on the other side.

pixelsword: HI all... new here.. I just posted a sword in the Items for Sale forum and see also a Non-professional classified, and am wondering if I posted in the correct place, of if I should post in both for better visibility, or is that even allowed?

blairbob: Lohman contracts work out so I'm told. I'm not sure his son does any of the work himself or anyone stateside
Oct 21, 2023 5:31:32 GMT
blairbob: exv. Ted I think has been around the longest as I remember back in the day Ted was already established and well known while Mesa was something of on the rise.
Oct 21, 2023 5:31:03 GMT
exv: Which mounter is the best? Ted Tenolds, john demesa, or fred lohman?
