      Dear Aryeton,

      Many thanks for all the helpful responses to my Sunday messages about cardboard, and changing rooms, and volunteer opportunities!

      All of those problems are pretty well solved, thanks to the discussions on Sunday at Ida Noyes and to the email responses!

      We now have a good plan for the changing rooms by the elevator lobby, thanks to Hal Raeburn!
      And a good-looking pop-up tent with walls for the Royalty changing room, thanks to Dougal McAlister!
      And a back-up pop-up tent, thanks to Nicolaa Halden!
      And a jar of small bungee cords, thanks to Ardena Wildlflower tonight! (These can be used to attach the Baronial Standards to the staircase when the Standards aren't in Court.)

      With all these great responses, I won't even need the cardboard (this time!). Jale, I'll keep track of your kind
      offer for the next round of scrollcase making!

      As of tonight, I don't have any other problems! (0r am I just kidding myself? Do you think this good luck will last all week? Stay tuned!)

      Furthermore, I have just learned by email that Count Sir Franz, the second king of the Midrealm, will be at the event! Way cool!

      Thank you all very much for your assistance!

      Dear Aryeton,

      During this last week before Coronation, the most important thing is for us all to know what's going on, both at the event, and in the local preparations.

      Here's a quick review of the event plan and the staff members. There are still many opportunities to participate! If you wish to volunteer for anything, please write directly to the staff member involved, using the email address here, or from the website.

      Site opens for staff: 8am

      Site opens for populace: 9am

      Site fees: $5 members. see website for other details.

      Classes: 10am-5pm.

      Displays: 10am-evening.

      Merchants: 9am-8pm

      Coronation Court: noon (Dag and Anne Marie)

      Tourneys: 1pm (or shortly after Coronation court)

      Morning Taverns: 9am-2pm.

      Afternoon Taverns: 2pm-8pm.

      Note: Remember, there is no feast! Bring money to buy your food at the taverns. You can either bring your own feast dishes or use the disposables provided by the taverns. You can also bring your own food, if you like. NO alcohol!

      Afternoon Court: 5pm.

      Evening activities: during/after dinner.

      Site closes: 10 pm.

      SUNDAY: site is open 10am-5pm.General hanging out and socializing.

      Classes: 11 am and 12 am

      Fighting: 10 am-5pm.

      There are many more details on the website: http://cleftlands. cwru.edu/ mk40.html

      Let me focus on just a few more requests for help this week:

      1. Staff for the Story Corps and the Photo Archiving project. We need more helpers for note-taking, keeping track of time, and general organization. Will train! Please contact Lord Seamus Mac MurchaDha <jon@armlann. com>.

      2. Scanner and laptop to scan old photos. Preferably with a person who already knows how to use it. This is a big request, but it would be a HUGE contribution to the event. Maybe the scanner's owner would do just a one-hour shift at the technology center, instead of all day? Please contact Lord Seamus Mac MurchaDha <jon@armlann. com>.

      3. Bungee cords, small. These will be used to lash the Baronial Standards to the stairway for decoration. We can always use rope, but bungee cords are much more efficient.

      4. Dressing screens for the changing room. (or large pieces of cardboard--see Fern's previous message!)

      5. Index cards in a parchment color, for labels, and notes. I have seen them previously, but this year they only seem to make neon colors.

      6. Loading and unloading help. We expect 600 people at this event, and the plan is to allow unloading at the front door before parking on the Midway streets. Even though Tedesco and the Thieves of Hearts are willing to devote their morning to helping unload, more help is needed! Using the "each one teach one" theory, we could get a lot done if everyone helped one additional person. Thank you very much, in advance!

      7. Last minute changes. Due to the many different projects for this event, there may have to be last minute adjustments to get them all in. Please be flexible and patient in case of changes. There will be an announcement board in the lobby to keep them posted.

      The staff members have all been doing a wonderful job, and working very hard to get so many things done! Please help them out in any way you can!

      Thank you very much!
