Default A little for those who don't know me.

Only got to do Saturday, but had a great day. We did a new show. We did the battle from the movie 300. This was done with paytrons and a few of the entertainers. The Spartans were all part of the show. Then two of us handled the persians. I was the general in charge of the persians. I have to tell you, it'* like hearding cats. First show, got a few ideas to make it better next week. I had a friend take some pictures and a few videos.

Here we are getting lined up to march down to the jousting field

Here'* a few videos as well

A little bit a taunting.



Here'* where I just gave up trying to orginize, it was total chaos.


Here'* a video where I broke the line but no one followed me threw. I also found myself trapped behind enemy lines and got nailed by a spear.

Some times ya. That battle the archer, you can see him kneeling in one picture dressed in red. He blocked a spear with something that you should never use to block with. He went down. I got hurt several times when I fought as a knight in full armor, don't do that anymore, just getting to old. The foam is much safer.

I watch the kids in Montreal mock battle all the time at the Mont Royal park. Every Sunday they are there during the summers.

Great to see the kids getting involved and having fun Dan. The last pic with all the dust makes it look almost real.
