Re: Greetings, and a question or two....Fyrecrawling 101
- Oh, Lord Efenwealt, it was absolutely my joy to have you show up, and
be a part of the class. If you do come to Estrella, I would like to
talk to you about being in the concerts, and Open Arms Bardic Hall,
and a host of other things. Your rep and talent definetly precede you!
Btw, it just takes a bit of legwork to secure groups. You contact
them during the day, and see if they can spare a half hour or so.
Explain the groundrules when you show up with your crowd. The main
thing, is you want the households to be fairly close together, so you
can get at least 3 or 4 camps under your belt. I have the students
practice hailing the camp, introducing themselves, etc. as well.
(I also do this for folks who want to go fyrecrawling and want some
guidance. I dub them evil minions, and we go forth)
Just FYI, Efenwealt, Rathflaed (aka the Black Bard, the guy with the
Hat,etc.) and two other worthies showed up, just as I was teaching
the practical class. It was a delight to have them jump in when we
lost some momentum (because the audience comes first.)And then they
were very nice about letting me point out things that they did, and
asking them why they did what they did. I think the audience was
amazed at the amount of subtle and practical things that are
calculated before we hold forth.
- Suggest working together with Melandra on that one. She's down that way and usually has a pretty good handle on what's going on down there.-Rathflaed----- Original Message -----Sent: Tuesday, October 24, 2006 5:47 AMSubject: [SCA_BARDS] Re: Greetings, and a question or two....Fyrecrawling 101
True, I think the workshops are great. The one time I got to
participate was fun. I'm trying to convince my wife to let me do
Estrella this year, so MAYBE I can help out again.
I might try to coordinate something like this at Pennsic this year.
If someone were interested in doing something like this at Gulf Wars
this year, I would gladly participate. I just don't know enough camps
at that war to actually coordinate such a beast.
