Newsletters

Here are archived PDF copies of the Fencers, Dancers, and Bearbaiters Quarterly, the Newsletter of the Traynd Bandes.
As you can see, Quarterly was a bit of a overstatement, and exceedingly optimistic. But there are still some great articles and book reviews contained in their ancient pages.
