Okay, as I warned, I've called all the fighters. Right now we have at least four, but there are a few I haven't heard back from, plus there's a possibility a fighter or two from Lonely Tower will also show up. _*Directions: *_ Elmwood is about 30 minutes east of Lincoln. Head east on O Street/US Hwy 34. Turn left (north) on NE Hwy 1 (298th St). Continue for approximately 2 miles to the village of Elmwood. The library is two blocks west of Hwy 1, at the intersection of D Street and 3rd Street. I expect the festival area will be pretty obvious -- there were signs and street barricades last year. We will be setting up east of the library building (in the area where the petting zoo was last year). We still have a good-sized grassy area, although perhaps not as much shade. If someone can bring a second sunshade for fighters and fighter gear, that would probably be a good idea. _*Wave 1*_ Please let me know if you can be there by 9 am to set up sunshade(s), list field, and tables. Right now, I know Volkmar, Zino and I will be there at 9:00. A couple more people would be helpful. Please let me know. _*Wave 2*_ Everyone else, please call, email or text me if you plan on attending. It will be helpful if I know what you plan on demonstrating as well. Plan to arrive soon enough that you can be ready to roll by *11 am*.... you know how long you need to prepare, but plan on needing an extra 15 minutes! * Etionette will be getting the "photo garb" and related gear to Morgana and Natalya. The local photographer will need a couple of SCA folk to help "dress" people. If you brought/sent along props last year (like a goblet or a mug, a fan, a book, interesting hats, etc), please bring/send them again. * Calligraphy: I'll bring "big" calligraphy stuff as usual. * Weaving: I don't have anything on my card loom, but my little table loom can be there. * Cooking: There will be gyngerbrede and Shrewsbury cake samples/recipes again. * Music? * Scroll painting? * Knitting? * Jewelry-making (Morgana is, I think) * _____________________________ Questions? Please call me on my cell phone -- 402-440-2350. -- Isadora -------- Original Message -------- Subject: [MAGMOR] Demo at Elmwood Shakespeare Festival on May 2nd Date: Tue, 14 Apr 2015 08:49:25 -0500 From: Eric & Opal Doerr <[log in to unmask]> Reply-To: Historical Recreation in Mag Mor <[log in to unmask]>, Eric & Opal Doerr <[log in to unmask]> To: [log in to unmask] Hi, Mag Mor folk and friends. The second Elmwood Shakespeare Festival is on May 2nd, from 11 am to 3 pm. They've requested and we've agreed to participate again this year. Think JAV but on a much lesser scale. We'll have one sunshade [and some tree shade] for people to demonstrate an art or craft. We'll set up a list field and do the standard small tournament/small melee fighting. And we'll be helping the Elmwood folk with their own photo booth (our photo garb/accessories - their photographer and photo equipment). I'm thinking we'll want demo crew in two "waves." The first "wave" will meet in Elmwood around 9 am to set up the list field, sunshade, tables, etc. by 10:30 am. The second "wave" of additional people doing activities -- fighting, A&S, etc. -- should plan to arrive soon enough that they can be ready to roll by 11 am.... you know how long you need to prepare, but plan on needing an extra 15 minutes! There will be food venders at the festival or you can pack your own. Happily, this year's event is only planned for a total of 4 hours, so this won't take your whole day. Wear late-ish period garb if you have access to some, but don't no big deal if you don't! My biggest concern right now is that we have enough fighters -- I'll be contacting all the MM fighters personally to see who can make it. It would be best if we had at least eight, ten would be better. If fighters from Lonely Tower would like to participate, too, that would be great! If fighters need to make a choice between fighting at the JAV Renfair on May 16th _OR_ this demo, the please fight at JAV -- that's where you'll be most needed. Please let me know if -- and in what capacity -- you can help with the Shakespeare festival. Thank you! Oh, and I'll post directions to Elmwood in the next couple of days. -- Isadora -- Manage your subscription at http://listserv.unl.edu. listserv.unl.edu lists do not accept incoming email from Yahoo.com, AOL.com or Dropbox.com due to thier DMARC policies. -- Manage your subscription at http://listserv.unl.edu. listserv.unl.edu lists do not accept incoming email from Yahoo.com, AOL.com or Dropbox.com due to thier DMARC policies.
