- Cross and Lily XII
- January 25th, 2012
Last night I drove up to Richmond wih my younger son to attend the twelfth Practice Tourney of the Cross and Lily. There were thirteen under arms, including a Duke, a Count, and another Knight. My peerage rank put me fourth or fifth in rank, though it has nothing to do with prowess at arms. I was NOT on my game last night. My reflexes were sluggish and my hitting power low. Shows to go what happens when I skip too many practices. Fought some pickups afterwards and felt a little better about it. Part of my problem was probably that I was a late arrival and didn't have much chance to loosen up. But mainly I think it was lack of practice. Even so, it was a good evening with good people, so it was in no way a wasted trip.
