Post Pennsic Report:
- So as many worry over who won and who lost, I report on the far more
important issue of how the sympossium went. Djoka and I were
10 people, including me and Djoka, showed up. Of that Djoka, Dirk,
Idhunna, Isard, and I were already on the list. so we got 5 new
which isn't bad, for a group of people who had a maximum of three
people that actually knew each other just last January.
We talked for a about an hour and were treated to wonderfull
chip cookies by Djoka's camp mates.
Later in a week another person came by Djoka's camp looking for the
Frysaians. Sadly Djoka was out at the time and the person did not
return :( .
This all re-inforces my belief that there are blenty of Frysians in
the SCA, we just need to find them. Toward that, I suggest that we
put adds in the kingdom newsletters. Here in Atlantia it is:
$25 for a quarter page
$40 for a half a page
$60 for a full page
Assuming that the other Kingdoms are about the same, I suggest that
gather what ever funds we can and do as large an add as we can
reasonably afford. If we were able to get $200 we could probably do
full page adds or 5 half page adds.
The most likely kingdoms to target are, in order:
Midrelm (more than half this list is from the Midrelm)
East (the New York state dutch desendants must have som SCA in them)
Atlantia (the Washington, DC / Baltimore area is diverse group)
I am willing to pledge at least $20 toward this idea there are 17
people presently on the list, 17 x 20 is enough to do this.
Please respond with any and all thoughts on this.
Yours in service,
