So i have a question for ya'll, after ofcourse I have to ramble a bit.... I'll start by saying <3 dag, i never played(fought? well is a sport... hrm...) but would love to try it. I found it on my many hours of interwebing then later seen it on Tv and was ecstatic about it...
I live in new orleans and visiting family in elkhart area and was curious if i could come visit for a practice or something to try this marvelous... activity!!
So i guess, questions are: are practices for everyone to show up? are you guys going to be active any time between the 20th and the 25th of November? would my parent(s) need to be present during? I know some places of age limits, I am sixteen ;_; is that too young?
Anywho i've talked enough, taken enough of your time.. if i missed something i was supposed to read i'm sorry

Hi, it's good to see your enthusiasm. Sundays are our biggest practice days. We usually have about 20+ participants (weather permitting). Just drop another message on the forum here before you come out.

Yeah, if you bring a weapon out, we will definitely check it for you. A couple things to note: Make sure you have a cloth cover if you want to use it. The cloth protects the foam from ripping and slapping when it hits. If you don't get the chance to sew one, socks or tights can make a good temporary cover. Also, freshly crafted weapons tend to strike a bit too hard until they get broken in, so after a day (if you used glue) beat on something a bit with it for a good 5 - 10 minutes.
If one of your parents signs the waiver at the park and one of our veteran guys sees it happen, then we aren't really concerned about the notary. We just want to make sure that they are okay with you giving and taking a little foam covered abuse.
If they have some general questions you can find some Dagorhir practice videos on YouTube. Like this one, www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8Hth0_MMBg, to give them an idea of what to expect. If they have more specific questions, feel free to pass them on to us here on the forum and we will try to answer them.
And just so you know, Sunday practice have been running about 1 - 4 or 4:30 at Shoaff Park in Fort Wayne (6401 Saint Joe Rd, Fort Wayne, IN). When you come in the park, you can go straight or left, it doesn't matter because it is a loop. We practice about half way around. If you go left it will be right by the stop sign after the children's playground and splash pad.
