It is on!
The first World Championships of Parasol Duelling will be happening at Beakerhead in Calgary on September 13, 2014.
For those of you looking at a calendar that is in about two weeks from the time of this post!
This will be a full formal competition which will include, in addition to the Duels themselves, the Compulsory Figures and the Flirtation trials.
Co sponsored by the Steampunk Arts and Sciences Society and Madame Saffron Hemlock's Parasol Duelling League, this will be a chance for people to see this elegant sport in action.
If you are in Calgary for Beakerhead this year come by and check it out!
We are looking to tweet the competition live so stay tuned for the appropriate hashtags to follow.
Keep your sightglass full, your firebox trimmed and your parasol at the ready!
