Don’t have your own weapon? Consult your club and clubmates. We will have a small number of loaner feders, sabers, arming swords, and Cold Steel bucklers available day-of. Rookies in the Low-Intensity Longsword will have access to our loaner gear, and we ask that other clubs also do their best to equip their Rookies.
