Re: [Barony Of Carraig Ban] More information for the April 23rd Demo in Elgin, IL
- Carraig Ban can provide some weaving, a loom for display, probably some chainmail display as well as several illuminations. We also have Baronial tabards and a Herald's tabard I could bring. Although I'm not sure we have Herald that could attend. I'll keep looking for more A&S display items.The Boys could probably be there for the fighting, I will confirm with them.Epona

Subject: [Barony Of Carraig Ban] More information for the April 23rd Demo in Elgin, IL
For those still considering giving time to the Gail Borden Library
Demo in Elgin on April 23rd, I have some more details for you.
The library has a morning of scheduled events that are part of the
Thrones of Summer theme as well as some Easter festivities in the form
of an Easter Egg hunt. The whole program starts at 9 am in the
morning and what they hoped to get from us at that is a contingent of
the very medievally dressed, to be among the crowds. They have their
own King and Queen for this series of events, along with a little bit
of their library/court schtick so we are needed in our court best for
a processional. They could - and would dearly love - the use of one

Any art that could easily be demonstrated without taking too much
space or leaving a mess would be welcome - anyone who can spin,
weavers, chain mail, and especially calligraphy and illumination would
be welcome. The artisans would be in the library so no fear of the
elements causing problems. Anyone willing to bring one of their
finished scrolls as part of a display would also be appreciated.
Musicians also gleefully invited to take part/perform.
This part lasts until 1 pm and is still being negotiated in where we
will be most needed and what service we can provide.
On the side of the library is a gently sloped area large enough to be
roped off into a list for fencers and heavy. After the official
proceedings end, the fighting may commence. A request has been made
for a small pavilion to be set up for a day camp complete with the
"medieval look" - rugs, chairs, and more banners. This time is now
ours in terms of demo as the library is no longer on an official
schedule to promote their summer program.
What we can arrange between the library and ourselves will depends
heavily on who/what can be available for the day. Please let me know
as soon as possible if you are able to attend the demo and what you
