Re: Brand new & a question!
- You might want to throw a plain sheet over the stroller to cut the
colors down a little. If anyone says anything about it, explain it
is you first event and ask their suggestion for alteratives,
including where ti obtain the item.
You may not even have a chance to use it as small children tend to
get snached up by the Ladies and cuddled by them most of the day, at
least around here.

Stollers are okay! You have reason to need it, and I agree that
comfort should rule over authenticity. I love the historical aspect
of events, but we still need to be practical. There's plenty of time
to find another method if you want to for later events, but don't
feel awkward about it now.
Critical people can be found anywhere, and I've met a few at
events....let me stress "few". Overall, SCA participants are
terrific and friendly. You'll enjoy the time out at the event, I
promise! Link up with others like yourself, they'll be there, so
jump in and get your feet wet.
