Looking Back


You are a commoner in the quaint town of Walter, living your days out in relative peace. This morning you are travelling through the Shelley Lake Forest on your way to another fine day of toil. You find yourself daydreaming about how great life would be if you could have a day off now and then...Suddenly you are knocked from your serenity by a loud crashing sound and screaming. You scan the road ahead and around, finding a clearing you don't recall being there before, and occupied by a terrible sight. Will you tremble in fear, tuck tail and head back from whence you came, or will you charge forth to face your destiny?   The quest will take place Shelley Sertoma Park. Shelley Lake Trail is a 2.2 mile loop with fitness encounters placed throughout. We will be hiking the trail and using the stations and the roll of the dice to overcome each challenge.

Irish Stick Fighting at Fortnight


The Fighting Irish are not just Notre Dame Alumni! The Sword Conservatory (TSC) is teaming up with the Geek Fit Network and Fortnight Brewing Company to present two workshops on fighting with the shillelagh, an Irish walking stick. The shillelagh was the primary weapon used in Bataireacht -a form of traditional Irish stick fighting popular in the 18th and 19th centuries. 

Learn basic attacks and defenses with this uniquely Irish weapon and then participate in safety bouts with other participants. Watch demonstrations of this style of fighting by TSC instructors as you enjoy a brew. Then lift your glasses in a toast of Erin go Bragh!
