** High Priority ** Please share to any appropriate lists/individuals as desired ********** Greetings to all who read these letters, from Banbharun Siobhan O'Neill on behalf of the ValDay event staff. Please forward this to any and all who may be attending ValDay 37 on February 13, 2010 in the Canton of Three Hills. There are a few changes we are making to ValDay and we want to share this information as widely as possible. This information is on the event webpage . Please share it with your friends who are planning to come to ValDay. The Health Department and Fire Marshal have instituted *NEW* policies that affect and apply equally to all renters of the facility. We must comply with these policies and respectfully request all attendees cooperate with the new policies. We are informing you of these new rules ahead of time to avoid any potentially embarrassing situations that may arise. We need to reinstate our NO DAY CAMPS policy, for all areas of the Fairgrounds, to comply with the Fire Marshal and Health Department regulations. Please assist us in following these rules to ensure our continued ability to host Val Day at this unique site. 1. NO DAY CAMPS PERMITTED ALLOWED: personal chairs, small coolers, fighting gear, small personal items, personal food and drinks. Your goal would be to carry ONE load of stuff into the event. NOT ALLOWED: rugs, tables, A&S displays outside the official A&S display, banner stands, large storage boxes, buffets of open food, and pop-ups. Really, if it takes 3 trips to bring your stuff in, or two people to carry something, then you have too much stuff! 2. NO OPEN FOOD BUFFETS We cannot have open tables of food anywhere in the facility, the Health Department feels this is a potentially dangerous situation, and we respectfully request that you don't set out buffets or trays of food at ValDay. Eat your lunch in the tavern area or in your chair, then dispose of all food and wrappers immediately. We -really- appreciate your help on this. 3. AREAS NEAR FIRE DOORS MUST BE KEPT CLEAR Fire doors must be kept clear. List poles and ropes will help designate the areas to keep clear. Please assist us by asking those who put stuff in the areas to locate to a new spot. 4. NO DAY CAMPS IN THE HALLWAYS We are not allowed to have daycamps of ANY kind, in the concrete hallway between the Merchant Hall and the Heavy Fighting Hall, or in any of the other hallways. This too is a fire marshal and facility issue. We realize and appreciate that many of our SCA friends want to bring lots of cool stuff to the event, but ValDay is so large that we need to make compromises and we must keep the facility and mundane authorities happy. We truly appreciate your cooperation and help with this. Thank you, and please let us know if you have any questions, Banbharun Siobhan O'Neill, CL, CP (judith.a.kirk@...)
