March Group Order for Order of the Rose

We had an impressive turnout of over 40 people at Fencing practice on Friday. That truly is incredible! But when it comes to that many people, we have to face the fact that our loaner gear may not be enough to accommodate everyone.

I know that several of you were left without a helmet, gorget, or sword to use at practice and I’m sorry. When this happens, we hope everyone will do the honorable thing and share the loaner gear, so everyone can get a chance to fight. Additionally, you can help yourself, and us, out by participating in this group order 🙂 .

Group orders are fantastic ways to the help the group because even by purchasing one piece for yourself means there is one more thing available in the loaner gear. Plus, you get the added benefit of the Order paying for the shipping and taking care of ordering the right piece from the place. There’s practically no hassle.

In this group order we are offering the following things:

NOTE: If you are considering the purchase of a sword, please talk with an Officer or leave a comment below to ensure full understanding your options.

We’ll begin taking orders this Friday at Fencing Practice and you can let us know what you’re thinking or ask any questions in the comments below.

Group Order for Gear – Cyber Monday Sale!

The deadline for Group Order submissions will be on Monday, November 26th.

Now that the Flash Sale on Loaner Gear is almost complete, it’s time to start thinking about buying the new gear and there isn’t a better time than now.

Cyber Monday (November 26th) is fast approaching. That means there are some killer deals we’d love to take advantage of and hope you’d join us in our biggest group order yet!

We’re looking at buying a bulk set of masks, gorgets, and sword parts on Cyber Monday. Many of the discounts offered (because of the amount of work that goes into making this kind of gear) are contingent on ordering in bulk. The bigger the order, the bigger the discount.

Just like in the Flash Sale, I’ve set up easy PayPal links for you to join in on the group order, noteworthy information for each item, and links to where we are ordering the item from. Please leave a comment below if you have any questions and I will get back to you as soon as I can. 

So here’s what we’re looking at:

Absolute Fencing Masks – $40 each

Normally $50, thanks to Shay, we are now able to offer a higher quality helmet at a cheaper price of $40. It’s very comforting when you know you’ll always have a mask that fits and is available to use. 

Make sure to use the Sizing Chart to get a correct measurement before ordering.

Winter Tree Craft Gorgets – $55 each

Normally $60, we can get $5 of we order 5+. If we order 10+ we can get $10 off. Right now we are asking for $55 but if we get enough orders everyone who orders will get a $5 refund. 

Make sure to use the Sizing Chart to get a correct measurement before ordering.

Castille Armory Production Items – 10% off

Castille Armory is offering a 10% discount on all Production Items on Cyber Monday. This includes their new Economy Line. 

Please contact me if you’d like details on what’s available if you are wanting a sword or parts.

FLASH SALE on Loaner Gear!

It’s about time the Order of the Rose looks to getting new loaner gear. Much of it has been with us for a long time and has served us well.

Everyone did really well in supporting the group through fees, fundraisers, and donations and for that you have my deepest thanks. Unfortunately, we didn’t have as much of a turn out during our final Spook-tacular fundraising event as we needed to completely overhaul the gear for next season. There will be some new loaner gear, but not all. We will continue working towards that goal through next season.

To make room for the new gear, we are still selling off some of our old gear at a discounted price. This is a great opportunity to flush out your gear while you are saving up or just claim a piece for yourself and stop worrying about getting that one particular helmet each week.

Please Note: These items will be on a first come, first serve basis. Telling me you want it DOES NOT claim the item for you. You will need to contact me and arrange either a handoff or a Paypal transfer

Getting Your Own Gear

We always recommend not to buy gear until you’ve spoken to an Officer. The reason is to make sure you purchase equipment that is designed for fencing. But with Christmas coming up, we wanted to provide a simple guide of where to buy gear and what to look for. Whether you buy your gear all at once or buy it one piece at a time, having your own personal gear is worth having.
