The schedule for this year’s Swordsquatch event is packed to the gills with amazing programming. Overstuffed, even. With so much to fit on the roster, it was inevitable that some super great workshops would have to be left out. The bad news is that you won’t be seeing them in Seattle this September; the good news is that you can see them in Vancouver this July instead! NOTsquatch is a celebration of the PNW swordplay community spirit that Swordsquatch embodies, and a showcase of some excellent workshops that you won’t be seeing at that event, from instructors that you will. It’s also a not-for-profit fundraiser, and all proceeds will be used to help send low-income members of the Valkyrie WMAA community to Swordsquatch.
