A&S BMDL – Weaving Anywhere – Thursday, Nov 9th

Greetings to the Debatable Lands!

Thursday is A&S in BMDL, and we will be continuing our fiber-fun trend with a class on Weaving Anywhere taught by Mahin Banu Tabrizi. We will build our own looms out of string and small sticks, and weave on them. This is an easy-peasy way to have fun with string!

We will be at Victory Pointe Gaming Lounge (and ice-cream parlor), upstairs in the game room, at 1113 Carson Street on the South Side, starting at 7 PM. Come early if you wish, people start arriving about 6:45.

Upstairs is not Accessible, so if you need assistance or have questions, please call or text me, (724-759-3333).

Be sure to park safely — feed the meter if needed. They ticket like crazy on the South Side. I think the best place is across the street in the bank parking lot.

See you there!

Site clean up and Thrown Weapons

Konichiwa Debatable Lands! Join us tomorrow early, around 9am for site cleanup. Rakes and trash bags are appreciated, gloves are recommended. Rumor has it there will be hot cider and stew… Thrown weapons will be tentative until I can assess the range ground for the safety of the footing. If it is safe, we will throw.  Hope to see you all there bright and early!!

Practice Site Cleanup & Archery after Halloween Practice


Come early tomorrow to the Highland Park practice site to help us clean up the area, and show how much we care for our practice site.

Swing by for cleanup for 9am. Bring gardening gloves and rakes. There will be hot cider from Ranka, and a delicious stew from Master Urho Waltterinen.

Then between 1030 and 11 we’ll be setting up our post Halloween shoot. Bring your old jack-o’-lanterns for some shooting fun and we will be shooting for some prizes against some Halloween styled targets. 😉

Hope to see you there.
