Since both my age and non-SCA accumulated injuries have been catching up with me a lot this past year, this sounds like something good...assuming I can remember to show up for it...Paul Adler - 'Adler the Elder'On Sun, Jun 2, 2013 at 10:17 PM, Kirk Poore <[log in to unmask]> wrote:
Ladies and Gentlemen:
After conferring with several of the senior knights of the kingdom, I
have decided to sponsor an open discussion on how to keep fighting as
long as you can, and retiring from fighting and still being active in
the SCA when "that time" comes. Potential topics include:
Fighting effectively at over 50
Minimizing & recovering from injuries
What type of fighting do you still want to do?
Keeping fighting fun when you aren't as good as you once were
Transitioning into "emeritus"roles--Coaching, Counseling, Commanding
What? There's other stuff to do in the SCA besides fighting?
Well, what else do you like to do?
Keeping Relevance in Fighting When You've Stopped
Accumulative Injuries--How Much is Too Much?
We'll see where the discussion goes, and of course any related item is on topic.
Date & Time:
Monday evening starting at 8 PM
Location--The Royal Pavilion
Please bring a light, a seat, and a drink.
