Big news! We proudly announce that Baron Aelric of Battle from the Shire of Meadowmarsh will visit us at Satureday 12th of January 2019! We are honoured of his visit and celebrate this with an extraordinary fighter´s practise at HTC site.
12th of January 2019
Site open: 10.30 a.m.
Practise start: 11.00 a.m.
Afterwards we will go for lunch at one of the finest taverns in the near Prater.
We owe Baron Aelric not only the annual Meadowmarsh Boot Camp at Duedelsheim but also a very fine textbook about the art of heavy fighting: “Die Kampfkunst. Heavy Fighting in der SCA”
His astonishing fighting skills and his distinguished teaching make him one of the most important instructors oh heavy fighting. We very much appreciate his visit and heartly welcome him in Ad Flumen Caerulum. So join us and seize the opportunity of a unique heavy fighting lesson (by daylight!)
Because of collision with Halloween this Wednesday will be shifted to Thursday. This simple move from Wednesday to THURSDAY allows us both to collect candy and burn the calories the next day, so Happy Halloween everybody and see you on T H U R S D A Y (HTC Site open 3.30 p.m., heavy fighter training begins at 4.00 p.m.)
We are preparing for our most beloved fighting condition: insufficient light. It forces the heavy fighters to use on all their sensory organs. If you don´t see your opponent, you still can hear and smell him or her. So train your skills this Wednesday at HTC site.
We heartily welcome back our noble representative and Shire Seneschall Alienor de Salignac from Autumn Crown Tourney. We hope, that she can share her fresh fighting experiences with us this Wednesday at our Heavy Fighters Practise at HTC site.
This Tuesday our good friend Yussuf ibn Yussuf would have celebrated his 45th birthday. We remember him as one of the best fighters and trainers we ever had in our shire. So tomorrows heavy fighters practise will be in commemoration of his efforts to teach us good blows (which were quite successful even in the long run). See you at HTC site as every week. We are sure, Yussuf will be there as well, somehow.
Regardless of sinking temperatures (yes, we are spoiled after this summer) we will continue our heavy fighters practise at HTC site this week, so get well and join us and fight hard.
What is the best thing you can do on holydays in Vienne? Yes! You could join the Heavy Fighters of Ad Flumen Caerulum for a Wednesday Fighter´s Practise in the lovely Prater. So does Aymar du Boisvert (hopefully) this week, so show and gear up!
The SCA heavy fighters of Ad Flumen Caerulum are looking forward to the 500th fighters practise since the beginning of records in 2008. This Wednesday we will focus on the rules according to the SCA Marshal´s Handbook. We will repeat the most essential things in preparation for incoming authorizitions. So gear up and join us at the HTC site.
WednesdayWisdom: After event is before the event. We have to repeat the lessons learned at Red and Gold and keep on getting better. Furthermore our friends gave us a riddle to solve: for what use is this banana sabre? Can you open a banana or a bottle with it? Was it taken from grandma´s rocking chair? So join us in exploring the benefits of this “weapon” (?) at this week´s heavy fighters practise at HTC site.
Vienna expects the hottest dog days in summer since years. So the training conditions will be perfect for the long-term-praparation of “Red&Gold” next week. Joins us for heavy acclimatisation and fighting at HTC site as every Wednesday.
