      Noble Cousins!

      Greetings from Solveig! Yes, this continues to be an odd way to plan

      an event. But, here is what we are looking for. The site should be

      within one or two hours of Syracuse, New York. Ideally, it should

      have a commercial kitchen with LOTS repeat LOTS of counter space. It

      should also ideally have wrestling mats available. It would also be

      nice to have a couple of rooms suitable for classrooms. The site need

      not be large. This will not be a large event. However, it would be

      absolutely wonderful if there were a cherry tree or other fruit

      bearing tree garden nearby. Actually, any sort of botanical garden

      with windy paths would be wonderful. As with all events, we need to

      find an economical site. The general time frame is late-May early-

      June. That should clear conflict with the Japanese events in BMDL and

      the East Kingdom. Anyway, if you know about possible sites, please,

      please, please tell me about them. Thank you very very much in advance.

      One of the event boosters is suggesting that the event might start

      later than usual with the site possibly opening as late as noon or

      even 1:00 PM. What do people think? Dinner is the main attraction or

      at least the central focus of the event. Incidentally, banquets

      really were a big deal in Japanese political life.

      What sort of activities might happen during the daytime? I am still

      hoping for a sumo tournament. Also, a poetry party might be really

      great. One of the boosters is rooting for calligraphy. Calligraphy is

      appropriate pretty much all year. If we perform a chaji with tea

      following the banquet, do you suppose people would be up for a

      quickie 30 minute introduction to how to be a guest sometime before

      dinner? While I think that some sort of schola would be a great way

      to occupy the afternoon while dinner is being prepared, I am eager

      for any and all suggestions at this point.

      Thank you all very very much!

      Your Humble Servant
