Captain Shamus O'Shannon
and Lady Wild Rose O'Shannon

     Karen Shannon is an excellent seamstress and made the clothing they are wearing in this picture taken at the Shakespeare Festival in '98. Karen is an excellent cook. She also is a brilliant person, fun to be around, she will sit and chat almost all night on any given topic you choose to discuss!

    Jim Shannon II is in charge of club safety and one of the club founders. He can answer just about any question about swordfighting you can throw at him. He teaches collegiate
fencing as well as renaissance fighting. Ask him what he did in college I dare you!

The Captain Replies, “What, Me?! I’m old and slow…I just have you all psyched out! Anyone can beat anyone any day. The odds are, however, that one or the other will be better overall, but the newest newbie can beat a Champion at any moment. Just don’t bet on it happening very often …”

The Good Captain and his lady have two daughters who have picked up the blade now that they are of an age to do so.

Lady Rachel has been fencing for 2 years now, and enjoys fighting with saber. The most memorable quotes from her have to deal with a dagger however, from her godfather, Landron Di Borgia, when she stabbed him in the back as part of the Maidens Plight at Spring Steel last year. He wasn’t sure whether to be proud or worried immensely about her and her cold attitude. The other quote is, “Oh, my arm!”

Here is a picture of Rachel in action at McPherson Highland Games Sept. ’02. Her cousin Garieth is down beside her.

Little Miss Rebecca just turned 10, and already is learning the art of defence. Rebecca has decided that she is going to follow in her favorite pirates’ footsteps (namely, Opie… Not Dad…) and has formed the Power Puff Pirates with some of the other young lasses who are with the group. She’ll have her own boat by 12…

Here is Little Miss practicing with a boffer at our Sunday night practice.
