To All Heavy Weapons Fighters of Ponte Alto and Its Environs!
A reminder to those to attend marshal activities and practice
at Fairfax County Public Schools: Fairfax County Schools do not allow any form
of real weapons, even work knives, Swiss Army knives, etc., to be brought onto
school property. Please be respectful of this rule so that we may continue having
our practices at schools. Thank you!

send your photographs and descriptions to the MOAS.

Potluck Heavy Weapons Practices
Back by popular demand! The Barony of Ponte Alto will resume having a
potluck picnic along with its Sunday afternoon heavy weapons practice in Tysons-Pimmit Park
from 12:00 to 4:00 PM, on the same Sunday as the monthly Baronial business meeting is scheduled,
and will continue into the autumn for as long as fair weather will permit (except for July,
when the monthly business meeting is cancelled in lieu of Pennsic War).
All members of the populace are invited to attend. Heavy weapons and light
weapons fighters, arts and sciences creators and dancers and other performers are welcome to come
and fight / craft / entertain / practice their specialty. Potluck participants bringing dishes
are requested to bring modest amounts of food (5-8 servings). Gentles from our neighboring Baronies
of Stierbach and Storvik are also most welcome to participate. (See the Monthly Calendar on the
Baronial Website for Directions).
Please contact Deputy Knight's Marshal, Duncan the Elder (duncan.l.cooper AT gmail.com)
