Game 7 Sword Safety

For those of you that haven't noticed, tonight is game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals, and downtown is going crazy.

All of our evening classes are still on as normal, however, but if you are coming downtown please keep in mind the following:
  • DO NOT bring your own weapons to class tonight!
  • BORROW the school's loaner gear for any classes you are attending!
  • IF you already have your stuff with you and you bring it in anyway, please leave it in the studio when you go home and pick it up later in the week.
The police are out in force, and so are the yahoos. Stay calm and behave reasonably and you shouldn't have any problems with either.
