We were talking a bit about this in the temple forum but I'll throw this out here as well as over on the Garrison forums to get more eyes on it.

Would there be an interest in getting together to do a bit of lightsaber forms and dueling?? I was thinking the last weekend in August (30th or 31st) would be good, anyone else have other suggestions.

If interested please pm me or respond to this thread!

Over on GT, I see....

Jet City Saber Guild meets on Thursday, 20 Nov. 674 S Orcas St, Seattle, WA 98108

Is that "us"? What time?

On streetview, it looks like a parking lot with a bunch of businesses. In the lot? Or in one of the businesses?

Google is always helpful. It's not "us". https://www.facebook.com/jetcitysaberguild/timeline

https://www.facebook.com/events/350528088453652/

It meets at 7pm at Sanka. That appears to be one of the businesses at that address.

Not affiliated with AB, however, a lot of AB members are attending along with others that are interested. Shaye is more "in the know" than I. Wink

Thanks! I eventually figured it out. I see that Shaye is a member. Hope to see some AB Jedi there tomorrow!

As was clarified on Titan.... this is not a dueling group. It is a choreographed performance of lightsaber combat. Emphasis on performance.

I had a blast. The leader(s) brought a group of 12 people quite a ways in 2 hours.... we were doing a multi section routine. We also practiced a simple combat maneuver with a partner.

Great fun!

No session Thanksgiving but there will be one 4 Dec

Would anyone consider video recording some of the practice for us folks who live on the outer rim (i.e. Not Western WA.)?

The male leader did post a video but it was on Facebook (It's a pet peeve of mine when stuff is only on FB, but there it is).

You might have to even be a member of the group to get it.

Check for PM.

I could not make the first one as I had a work conflict, but I am involved with the group. It isn't a dueling group, the emphasis is on choreographed performance. That said, it will be rigorous and I will be working on people to ensure there is good technique. It's head by Matthew (now with alpha base) and Adrienne (soon to be with be with alpha base).

We didn't advertise it here specifically as we thought it would be in poor form to advertise for another organization here and tried to get the world out via the social media.

Information will be regularly updated via the facebook link and should have all pertinent information regularly updated. The only anticipated contact should be with each others blades or my head if I am doing some sort of lesson.

Thank you Shaye,
It's like advertising Pepsi on a Coca Cola site, probably not a good thing. Best kept to social media, or a private website.

But if at least a preliminary announcement wasn't here,, how would anyone know about it? I only discovered it by accident as Steve shared a hint and I went looking via Google.

Agree they are separate groups and in future info would be on their website (hopefully not just FB).

But at least an invitation would have been good to have been shared where there are people interested.

Unfortunately, I have a previous commitment on Thursdays so I won't be there as often as I would have liked.
