One of my friends made a couple of suggestions for the tent this year
which sound interesting.
One is to try and organize a Play Chess with a Knight Night. Both
for training of squires in one of their proper arts and to encourage
folk to play chess in the down times. I asked her to see if we can
get a seeding of knights who are willing before we push the idea,
then we can see about girls in low cut bodices passing out free
refreshments or at least water to the players and advertising.
The other thrust is towards the kids, which are spiff and fine but
its not a bad idea to remind parents that the Period Gaming Tent is
not Children's point and while our staff are nice folks and
volunteers they are not trained child care professionals so we
strongly encourage parents to accompany their children to the Tent
and remember their obligations under the Pennsic Rules. And
meanwhile to get at least some of is certified as child safe.
Will pass along more information as I get some solid suggestionsa nd
we can see what makes sense
