Boffer Swordplay 2016

Boffer Swordplay & Exercise

Fridays from 3:00 - 4:30 pm 

October 20, November 17

Boffer sword play is a physical sport with light contact, similar in intensity to soccer and a pillow fight combined. Boffers, constructed of foam-wrapped PVC pipe, duct tape and some imagination are used in live-action roll-playing games and mock combat.  This after-school activity attracts kids and teens ages 6 to 18.  Chaz Hillyard will coach participants and boffers are provided by the Library if you don’t bring your own.
