The following announcement went out over radio and flyers
Hello Citizens of the Empire,
Edward William Barton-Wright here since the ban on weapons was passed a-few months ago I’ve heard many of my fellow club members pine away at what to do if they are caught by a blood crazed Jedi, or maybe just a normal mugger. Well I have the solution; Bartitsu. The combination of years of galactic travel and studying with the very masters who taught the original Jedi. I’ll be founding a club very soon and I’m looking for a good location. Here’s the contest, send me a letter detailing why your home planet or city would make an ideal location for such a club. I’ll personally select a winner from the applicants.
