Aston Tor Fighter Practices Resume

posted May 15, 2018, 8:52 PM by Forgotten Sea

Aston Tor Fighter Practices Resume!

All are invited to the Aston Tor Fighter practice, to watch or participate! Some loaner gear will be on hand. I am hoping to get a decent turnout of newer Fighters wishing more intense training on drills, and more experienced Fighters with an interest in teaching! Please, let us know you’re interested in coming, and share this event with others who might be interested!

https://www.facebook.com/events/1333052373494731/

These fighter practices will be held on the Thursday evenings that Tor is NOT meeting, at Waterfall Park in Independence by Bass Pro, 6:30-8:30 pm.

Cookout postponed due to weather

posted May 2, 2018, 2:42 PM by Forgotten Sea

Due to expected severe weather around 8pm, the cookout at this week's practice has been postponed to next week, after Curia.
Practice is still on for this week.

Cookout at first outdoor practice this Wednesday (May 2)

posted May 1, 2018, 6:33 AM by Forgotten Sea

Hi all!

There will be burgers (with or without cheese while it lasts), hot dogs, and veggie burgers at the cookout this Wednesday. They will be pretty lonely without other stuff. And hard to eat without any buns.

Please bring something to keep these wonderful foodstuffs that have sacrificed everything for you from being difficult and alone.
