Wilmington's Latter Day Duelists
Tonight the Fabulous Fantail Film Festival on the battleship North Carolina screens the swashbuckling classic, The Adventures of Robin Hood. As part of the festivities, fighters from the Cape Fear Fencing Association will be on hand to demonstrate the proper way to swing a sword. WHQR's Megan Williams stopped by the club earlier this week, to learn about the fastest blades on the Cape Fear.
