My friend Raymond Sprague Sr. is a teacher at Mt View High School in Thorndike Maine. He runs a fencing club there for 15 students and is trying to get enough equipment together so they can join the US Fencing Association & compete in their events.
If you play in the Society for Creative Anacronism and shoot archery or fence, then you know Raymond. He is Master Godric Hamtun, Captain General of the Archers.
He tells me the kids have promise.
What they don't have is money.
The scoring equipment, uniforms & weapons they need to advance are well beyond the means of the school and the parents.
Here is a chance for the warriors of the SCA to pay it forward. Can we raise enough money to start sending Raymond's kids to competions?
Let's inspire future generations of young men and women to learn the art of the sword & the courtesy, generosity and history that goes along with it.
