    To update the Sith ranks, William has stated that he does not wish to participate this year in the live-performance.

    The Jedi and Sith duelists listing has been updated and represents the most current information. At this time, I'm aware of these dueling pairs:

    Bill B vs Jess S
    Janice M vs Norma M
    Victor S vs Dave Barone

    Featured duels:
    Jon D & Peter G M vs Karen C
    Jon D & Peter G M vs Chris S

    We have two more Sith than Jedi at this point. Thus, consider when looking for a dedicated partner that Jon and Peter will each need to have a Sith partner prior to dueling Karen. Further, no Jedi can be killed in these duels. Indeed, I'd recommend that no one be "killed"

    Finally, when constructing your duels, be aware that you have the following segments:

    1 minute - after Darth and My'ko signal the charge

    1.5 minutes - while Jon, Peter, and Karen duel

    1 minute - before Count Dooku declares order 716 and the duels end.

    Thus, approximately 3.5 minutes of dueling material are needed for the live show.

    Have fun!

    Are there any Jedi that still don't have a dueling partner and will be at the next rehearsal?

    Of the 11 Jedi duelists, 5 have reported their partners to me. So that is at least 6 Jedi still possibly looking to establish a partner.

    I can do either Jedi or Sith because I cannot make a lot of the practices. Marty and I may pair up.

    What to do if your partner is not available:

    Over half of preparing a duel is practicing one's own basic moves and building cardio to make it through over three minutes of continuous dueling (for some people, even more). If your partner isn't there, be prepared to run some laps, or some sort of sweat inducing exercise, go through your basic footwork, and drill the five or ten strokes you intend to use.

    Then "shadow duel;" imagine a partner and what you would like to do. Once you have a few different elements, ask to borrow someone else's partner briefly and go through your ideas while their partner watches and critiques your ideas.

    While it would be great if people can take advantage of all the rehearsal sessions we are providing, they are there for your support. It will be most critical the people attend the final five rehearsals. While I would prefer that people make all of the rehearsals in May, please do your utmost to attend them, particularly the final five.

    Since I began working with Becky at the last HG practice, I'll continue with her and we'll plan to fight on the field.
    She's the Sith.
    Jon is working on her lightsaber, and she's making her own costume.

    My apologies to all performers who showed up to the Bisons stadium and discovered they weren't expecting us. I've since communicated with the Bisons and, while they have a copy of our rehearsal schedule, they had thought that we didn't start rehearsing there until May. They will be ready for us this coming Wednesday.

    I will not be Wednesdays practice and may not be able to make any of the Wednesday practices until we get bolder to the event. I've shared this with the one partner I am aware of at this point (Peter).

    My dueling partner is aware I will not be at rehearsal on Wednesday.

    Regarding this past Saturday's rehearsal...to those I may have offended by dropping the F-bomb on MORE than one occasion, I sincerely apologize for my lack of discretion. I was mad at myself for going to the wrong rehearsal location and having to double back. [face_frustrated]

    I will be at all practices starting tomorrow. I'll be there to answer any questions about the live show, timing, and field movement. Also, if anyone so desires, I would be happy to work with anyone on dueling technique and sequence ideas.
