Until I figger out how to intuit this website-design system and actually post a decent
number of pix here, let's try something different:
Picasa albums that
are only semi-public: you need to use the links to see pix from various events.

BARTITSU demo, 4/10 - Midway Village, Rockford
Early in April, a Madison WI area troupe calling themselves "The Crew of Her Majesty's Airship Badger" called us: they'd scheduled a live-action Steam Century Mystery even on 4/10 at Midway Village in Rockford. We were invited to demonstrate Bartitsu... so of course we promptly dispatched the Bartitsu Team (Allen, Andrea, Mike and Antina Pennock), and committed some Bartitsu. Fun was had, possibly evident from these pictures. Thanks to Antina Richards-Pennock for most of these pictures; Andrea took the last few views of Antina whacking the snot out of Allen.
