April 23rd -
- For those thinking about heading out to Elgin's demo at the Gail
Borden Library, here is some more detail -
Court & Country have agreed to come out and sing, and are part of the
schedule as singing at 12:30 prior to the Library's royal procession
and mini court. This won't be SCA court at all - but part of the
library's summer reading program. However, having some people to
stand as honor guards and/or carrying banners - that would certainly
not come amiss. The more banner/heraldry the better, apparently.
I have been told there will be a number of tables set up - six foot in
length - for the purpose of displaying whatever people wish to
bring/demonstrate/display. There is one wall with a hook system
already built in so there is some room for hanging displays if there
items that would be better displayed hung on the wall.
Supposedly there will be room for fencers inside the library, but I'm
not sure if they realize how much room you guys might need. I have
gotten permission to take a chunk of their front lawn for the purpose
of heavy fighting (if a Marshal shows up!) so that we will be visible
yet out of the way of foot traffic. A small pavilion can be set up,
but I need to know before hand the exact dimensions of any
volunteering so we can be told where its safe to put with and avoid
sinking a tent peg into either their sprinkler system or a gas line.
We're not required to shut down and pack up at a certain time,
according to the library.
Forward at length, my apologizes for the repeat postings.
