Subject: [MAGMOR] Fwd: [MAGMOR] Demo at Elmwood Shakespeare Festival on May 2nd

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)

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.
