Our team currently consists
of seven full time members and one reservist:
Downs has held the position of Team Captain for longer than any
other team member, and continually provides us with an example
to strive for. His strength is matched by his agility and determination.
Seth ranked third place at the April StarCon competition with
Rapplean is the founder and sensei and runs the DuSaQ (Klingon
for "school") with an eye for advancement and a driving
Rob has proven himself in the arena by taking 1st place at a Bat'leth
competition three years ago.
Henderson, who recently won 3rd place at the MileHiCon 34 Bat'leth
Tournament - Advanced Level in October '02, has provided us with
the first distinct fighting style - "The Scorpion" -
mixing lightning quick attack speed with incredible responsivness
for defense. Watch out for Brady or you'll be stung too!
Rapplean was the first female member, and continues to benefit
the group with her vast knowledge of teaching methodology. Never
a bad attitude Tiffany always provides the team a smile when things
start to get a bit too intense.
Vance, who recently won 2nd place at the MileHiCon 34 Bat'leth
Tournament - Advanced Level in October '02, is a continual inspiration,
and currently holds the record for most Bat'leths broken (three
+ two other member's). With just a hint of bottled rage behind
his fighting attitude Jim promises not to use his real bladed
& battle worthy Bat'leth in competition sparring or tournaments!
Murphy is our most recent member, and she faces our lessons with
amazing persistence and bravery. Utilizing one of the "battle
weight" practice Bat'leths, Varina can whip the competition
weapons around like they were toys!
Colligan is a member of a Klingon House in the Denver-Metro area
and one of the organizers of the Bat'leth tournament at the annual
Denver StarCon. He was the guy that scored first place at the DragonCon
Bat'leth tournament against Vance, and now has just recently joined
the VUC as a visiting combatan. His unique fighting style and speed
have begun to challenge the VUC membership to not only hone their
skills, but redefine them!
Prather was a member of the Vance for Governor team but his work
schedule has forced him to become a reservist member of VUC ---
until he can rejoin as full time active member. In the mean
time - he tries to make sure he can compete in tournaments along
side the VUC employing a unique style that rivals Brady's and
an intensity that rivals Seth's (you should see Ames spar either
of those two - order a pizza because you're talking 45 minute
Peterson definititely gets the award for "most improved",
by moving from the bottom of the ranks all the way to second place
to compete with the leading members in a just few short months.
Seemingly the "puppy dog" of the team because of his
soft voice don't find yourself fooled - Doug is more a grizzly
bear in waiting than a cute fuzzy puppy! Doug has been forced,
due to health and employment situations, to become a VUC reservist.
