FPR 2007

These are pictures from the Florida Poly Retreat 2007. We are the only known poly retreat to feature Seige Weaponry! This year was a landmark retreat for us. We allowed the media to take a peek into the retreat! A few months prior, a reporter from Miami went "undercover" to the PolyCentral discussion group and videotaped the discussion, airing it on their evening news! The Florida poly community had many discussions over this event and it was generally decided that, since the media will go to whatever lengths necessary to get the story they want to get, it is in our best interest to invite them in on our terms and give them the story we want them to get. So we announced the presence of a reporter on one day, who was not allowed to record or interview anyone unless an individual approached her, and there was a Round Table Discussion where those interested in being interviewed sat down with the reporter and discussed poly issues. Plus, we had medieval weapons! I'm missing a bunch of those pics that I took, since I used Tacit's camera and he hasn't given me the copies yet. If you have trouble with the video clips, visit my YouTube account.

From the projectile's perspective (sound is not important - you might want to turn it down). The first minute or so is the camera being wrapped in padding, which we had to do while the camera was on since we couldn't turn it on after it was all wrapped up.
