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.
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
- Calligraphy: I'll bring "big" calligraphy stuff as
- 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
- Scroll painting?
- Jewelry-making (Morgana is, I think)
Questions? Please call me on my cell phone -- 402-440-2350.

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
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
