This coming Sunday we will have a group of people coming to visit the
Ayreton Practice. They are very interested in the SCA and what it has
to offer both Adults and children.
These are a group of secular home schoolers that hope to be able to
integrate the educational aspect of the SCA with the their home
schooling. Discussions have already occured between them and the
Regional Minister of Youth as well as with the Kingdom Youth Boffer
Martial as to how this can be done successfully.
While this is not exactly a demo I am hoping that the local SCA would
come out in the best way possible. Having armor done as nicely as
possible, people that aren't fighting coming in Garb and that sort of
thing. If you have A&S projects that are finished, and especially if
you have one you are still finishing that can be worked on would be
great as well.
There will be at least one family and up to 6 families that may be
coming as well as the usual passers by.
The hard part comes to this. We do not have the Building. In fact
if I understand things correctly NOBODY has the building as it is
closed until school gets started again. This means there will be NO
electrical outlets nearby, though we can use the courtyard for
covering. I can bring a few portable tables to use for projects but
I seriously doubt that the building will be open and so their tables
will be unavailable to us.
Since this will be youth oriented having youth marshals for rapier
and heavy would be very nice if they are available.
And yes, children can do Arts and Sciences with the Adults. I saw
some great pictures at Pennsic of 7 year olds doing Illumination with
Gold and doing it very well.
SCA parents who have children are of course encouraged to come and
parcipate with their children.
Please contact me at Mystborne AT Yahoo DOT com and let me know if
you will be able to help out or will be coming and/or bringing
projects so that I will know what to prepare and bring.
Thank you very much!
