Duct tape Jamboree II: Fighters retreat and chivalric roundtable.
Noble companions in arms! A few years ago I was contemplating many
things by the warm hearth with my beloved Lady. We were speaking of
things we found joy in; fighting, building prowess, and learning from
masters was one. Camping under the stars with good companions was
another. Speaking and thinking on chivalric virtues openly and plainly
was yet another. "Why don't you combine all three!" she exclaimed.
Thus the Duct Tape Jamboree was born. This will be the second annual
occurrence. (although last year we didn't get to do it, as we were
just to busy serving the Kingdom in
Description: In the beauty of the former Boy Scout camp Wokanda,Peoria, Illinois
, We will once again hold a "fighter campout and
retreat". We will enjoy each other's company during the day,
exchanging blows, and learning from each other and the knights I can
beg and/or coerce into attending, and, after we are exhausted and
bruised, sit around a fire with our companions, get to know each other
better, cook hotdogs and marshmallows, and conduct a roundtable
discussion on the virtues of Chivalry, historically, as they apply to
our society and actions today, and how we can increase our
understanding both personally and regionally. Last time, we had great
profit in the open, honest discussion on these most important
subjects. I'm sure this time will be no different
Scope: This is a Fighter's retreat, with a
very focused scope. In the
spirit of this goal, participation in the chivalric arts and camping
under the stars in Noble Company are the only activities we will be
planning for. It's a great opportunity to let your non-martial
significant other have a peaceful day at home without you. (wink)
Site: As the furtherance of the Chivalric arts is dear to My Lady and
me, we will be providing the site at no charge to the participants. It
is a beautiful primitive camping site with clean toilets, hot
showers, and water. Bring camping supplies appropriate for this form
Food: please provide for your own lunch. Dinner will be a potluck.
Bring a package of hotdogs or brats, marshmallows, etc. Whatever you
feel appropriate to share. Remember, simplicity will allow us to focus
on the fun!
Date and Time: Saturday Sept 15th, (I'll be there at 8 in the morning)
till we drag our butts out of there on Sunday.
Note: For several reasons
this does not fall under the auspices of an
"officially sanctioned SCA event". In other words, Please don't sue
me, and bring your own insurance card! (smile)
Contact: If you have questions, concerns, etc, let me know! Please
RSVP to me no later than a week before the event. Don't let that stop
you from coming! But it would help with the planning. Robert Downey
