Lightsaber dueling group, the Knights of Bury, is soon to be an official club at Salisbury University.
This up-and-coming club appeals to SU students looking to relieve stress or live childhood dreams. The group meets Thursdays at 8 p.m., welcoming all Jedi Knights and Star Wars enthusiasts.
BYOL (Bring your own lightsaber)!
The Knights of Bury is comprised of Jedi Knights Chris Diehl (from left), Cole Barbes, Jeremy Dietrich, Christian Ottey, Colby Levengood and Luke Hartlaub.

Jeremy Dietrich could be mistaken for a Mandalorian seeking out his bounty, Baby Yoda.

"We're a super friendly bunch and are just looking for more people to join in our shared passion," club founder Jeremy Dietrich says.
The Knights of Bury bring iconic Star Wars scenes to life on SU's campus.
