Hi, Mag Mor -- especially the fighters -- It's cub scout demo
Here the basic info:
- Who: Cub
Scout Pack 59 serving Kahoa and Meadow Lane Elementary
- What: An
SCA fighting demo for their annual Blue and Gold Banquet
- When: Friday,
February 20. Demo at about 7 pm, after their dinner (which
starts at 6:15 pm), meeting and award distribution.
Where: Kahoa Elementary School, 7700 Leighton Avenue.
Specific room information to follow. I expect it'll probably
be a gym or a lunch room -- I will post the specific room
The area is 55 ft long by 17 ft wide at this point, but can be
made wider by remove a row of tables. The ceilings are LOW --
8 ft 3 inches! No great swords in action at this demo!
This sort of demo isn't a large time commitment -- probably 20
minutes of actual demo and 10-15 minutes of Q&A. Mostly it's
about showing up early enough to get geared up and be ready to
"perform" on time, sharing some educational bits about our time
period, and letting people know about the SCA -- locally and
world-wide. It works best if there's at least 4 fighters and 1
emcee/narrator/speaker. Showing off some of the more obvious,
visual A&S stuff is fine -- some showy garb, a banner, etc.
The scouts themselves will be totally focused on the fighting,
weapons and armor. The parents may express more interest in
non-fighting activities. I'll make sure there are plenty of
business cards to hand out with our web info.
Please let me know if you are available to help.
