Re: [sig] Re:next Slavic U
- Greetings from a new member... from the Outlands ( New Mexico) We here are used to camping in the desert, where it is a requirement to wear everything you own every day, from the lightest clothes during the day to the warmest clothes, hats, boots, cloaks, etc. at night... camping is good! Although we have more people attend where there is a possibility of hotels for day trippers.

possible source of live music. :D
Also I don't think we need to keep this A&S oriented:
Fighters could have a tourney, with an appropriately
themed prize, maybe an additional prize for authentic
armor. Dunno about fencing, but an Archery
competition would be good. Classes in applicable
techniques - mongolian archery, for example - could
flesh out the class schedule.

would be more difficult for travellers, and yet still
more cost effective, so each attendee would have to
make a decision -- if you had a camping site that had
nearby reasonably priced hotels, then you'd be golden.
However, I also think that camping gives us a wider
window of when to hold the event. I know that I camp
in Vermont over Memorial Day weekend, in the
mountains, and it is generally pretty COLD at night,
so I do pack my shuba and my fur hats and my boots. I
suspect that most northern regions would still be cool
enough even into May or early June for us to dress
appropriately.... (except for me, I'm kievan, and our
climate is more like Virginia than Vermont ;p ....)
