DragonCon Welcome and Help Needed
- Greetings to the Populace of Meridies and to Esteemed Guests from all parts of the Knowne World from Their Excellencies Baron Hajji Turahan Karamani al-Arsalan and Baronness Jadi Fatima al-Ishfahani al-Samarkandiyya, and the Populace of the Barony of South Downs. As you know DragonCon is coming to our fair city of Atlanta over Labor Day weekend, September 2-5, 2011. The Barony of South Downs will have a fan table set up at the Hyatt Hotel to welcome visitors and to introduce DragonCon attendees to the SCA. In this effort, the Barony is in search of volunteers to attend the table and to assist in various other activities.
We are in need of people to be in charge of the table for Saturday, Sunday and Monday, including set up in the morning and take down in the evening and people who are willing to sit and monitor the table for one or more two hour shifts throughout, Friday to Monday, the event. This is a wonderful opportunity to mingle with other SCAdians from throughout the world and to introduce newcomers to The Dream of the Present Middle Ages. Additionally, the Barony will be marching in the DragonCon Parade on Saturday morning, and welcomes all SCAdians in garb to join with us. There is a chariot for the parade, however strong bodied individuals are needed to be charioteers and pull. If there are not sufficient able bodied volunteers in advance of the Con, the chariot will not be used. All volunteers must wear garb and have a DragonCon membership.
If you are available to assist in this effort please contact Lady Rebinah nic Alpin, rebinahATyahooDOTcom to sign up in advance to either tend the table or to work as a charioteer. Once the Con has opened please contact Baroness Jadi at 404-805-9602.
Please consider giving some of your time to this effort and helping the Society grow.
Hajji Turahan Karamani al-Arsalan, Baron
