Boxing, Dawning 1722

My Friends and Neighbors,

The 2nd of Dawning the Boxing Club will be meeting by the Pitball pit an hour before noon. That puts us right after Muster.

The Boxing Club will be primarily using “James’ Revised Rules For A More Civilized Sport of Boxing,” but if there is interest, we can also use the National League’s rules.

James’ Revised Rules[…]” will be provided at the Club meeting. A copy of the Revised Rules can also be found in the Library.

If there are any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

Additionally, if someone would meet me in the Tavern just before Boxing, I would appreciate a hand carrying water up to the pitball pit, for consumption during Boxing and during Pitball.
