Moving to a New Park!!!!

Post  Izec on Wed Jan 13, 2010 7:04 pm


Hey everybody,

We are officially moving the park. Right now we are going to try out Bartholemew Park. It is located at 51st Street and Berkman Drive. The official address is 5201 Berkman Drive, but we will be meeting at the first parking lot on 51st Street (next to the basketball court and pool).

How to get there:

From I-35:
-Take the exit for 51st Street
-Head East on 51st Street (if you are coming from the north you will turn left under I-35, if you are coming from the south I'm not sure if you can just turn right on 51st)
- Drive about a mile and you will see the park on the left - turn into the first parking lot you see (it will have a basketball court and a pool)
- We will be meeting next to the basketball court

From 290:
- Take the exit for Berkman Drive
- Head south on Berkman ( if you are heading west from 290 turn left under 290 to go south on Berkman, if you are heading east on 290 turn right onto Berkman)
- Drive until you Berkman dead ends at 51st Street then turn left (you will see the park on your left)
- Turn left into the first parking lot you see (it will have a basketball court and a pool)
- We will be meeting next to the basketball court

***I will probably be showing up at about 3 pm, so if you get there at 2pm and no one is there, you can wait for me if you want***

UPDATE: Currently, there is a chance for rain on Saturday. The chances vary depending on who you are listening to, so...if it is raining when you are getting ready to leave then we probably are not fighting. You can call me if need be. PM me and I'll slide you the number if you don't have it.

For some reason I get the feeling having it there might attract some new people. Plus there's a creek and it kinda reminds me of the park in Kerrville which I liked because it was such a big open area.

It was good. The first day there we had to guys fighting with us. There is a lot of traffic and people that go by. I think our numbers may grow at this park. It would be better if we can get more than just three of us out there fighting.

I may not be able to make it next practice, as I will probably be busy moving into my new place, but after that I should be able to make it out for sure.

I just moved to the San Antonio area a couple days ago and am looking into checking out some fighting in the area. Most of my experience is with Belegarth, and I'm not really terribly interested in Amtgard battlegames, so I'm pretty excited to see some Dagorhir groups in driving distance.

You guys are planning on fighting at 3:00 today, yes? I'm planning on making the drive up to check it out.

How long does fighting usually last? What does attendance look like?

I'm planning on showing up at 3 pm. So is (Marcus) Sabbathious. Right now, we usually fight until about 5-6 or so, depending on if people need to leave early or not. Plus, it is the cold time of year, so we tend to wrap it up around when the sun goes down, though we are meeting right next to a basketball court that has lights, so it is conceivable we could play later, if people wanted to. That is one of the reasons I chose Bartholomew Park and that particular spot to meet.

As for attendance, I'm going to be honest, it isn't great. Ever since midsummer hit our attendance dropped from about 7-15+ down to about 2-4 people showing up and hasn't picked back up like it normally would in autumn. It is probably due to a few reasons; one being the old location was kind of out there in the sticks and too far for some; two being work schedule changes for some people (one of our players gave a ride to a number of the others and he got a night shift job and couldn't make it out as much, and I also got a night job and it became difficult for me to make it to the Saturday fight days and I had to stop going to Friday night practices entirely). So, we moved the park into Austin and are trying to get people back out again. It is the cold, rainy months, though, and hopefully it'll be warming up soon and more peeps will start coming out.

Another option for you, Derian, might be checking out The Southlands (http://milobaines.blogspot.com/) in New Braunfels. Not that we wouldn't love for you to come up here to fight, but it would be a shorter drive for you to fight with them. When last we visited them they were fighting on Sundays. You can read about them in the link I posted just above. But hey, come on out today and see what you think of Texas fighting and how we do it. Hope to see you out there today, and Ecthelion as well!

Edit: Derian, were/are you the Belegarth board webmaster? If so, I believe I sent you a sword that I made last year. If that's you, it would be awesome to meet you and hear how the blade held up.

How was the turn out? Now that I am settled into my new place, I should be able to start making it out, additionally, I am really close to Old Settler's now, so I should be making practice alot more.
As for making it out on the 28th, I wouldn't mind showing up.

Nice to hear from you Abigor, yes, we do meet every other Saturday and the 27th is our next Saturday meeting. Additionally, you have your location listed as Round Rock, which that being the case, you should look into making it out to Friday practices as well. We meet every Friday in Round Rock to fight, normally in Old Settler's Park but recently at one of our member's house because of the cold. You should try to make it out on Friday as well, I am sure you will love it.

Hello

Post  Donser on Fri Feb 26, 2010 12:54 pm

A couple years ago I did Belegarth in Nashville, TN. I still have my swords and shields and I was wondering how many people do you usually have coming out on Saturdays? I may come out tomorrow. 3pm at Bartholemew Park?

It is 3pm at Bartholemew Park, by the basketball court if I am not mistaken. As for how many people usually come out, I can not say for sure as I have not been to the new park yet, but I know that I am going to be showing tomorrow. So whatever the usualy number is +2 because me and my ride will be attending. Look forward to meeting you.

Hey Donser, last fight day we had I think 6 or 7. I was not there had to work. With the weather and school we haven't had a big turnout. In the summer we some times had 15+ people show up, I miss those days. We had enough people to do different battle scenarios, but lately we have just been ditching. Hope to see you today. I will be there about 2:30 or 3.
