> Greetings Friends of Shattered Crystal,
> This is Kenneth Ulric Amhranai tan Briongloid, the
> Barony's Chatelain. I received this email from Ms.
> Smith about their group and in what they were
> interested. I am currently in talks with her to find
> out more specifically what they want or are expecting.
> However, her and her organization really seem very
> exited by the various activities the SCA could demo
> and they are willing to allow us use of grounds,
> booths, stage, etc. and are willing to have their
> members assist us.
> Given that this is a cultural organization (and
> that it is in a far distant area of "our lands" that
> we hold for the Kingdom), we figured this could be a
> prime event to show off the great amount of fun and
> education the SCA could be and how far reaching our
> group is. To that end, we'd like to open this up and
> invite any of your membership that would be interested
> to come down and participate. Please, let me know if
> you're interested, and I'll keep all posted as updates
> of what is exactly going on occurs.
> Thanks so much. Below is the email I received.

>> I am Sharon Smith, part-time choral director for
>> Centralia Cultural
>> Society's chorus. We are working on a fund raising
>> event for late
>> August (24th and/or 25th) this year to be held at
>> our grounds and
>> building. We don't recall ever having any public
>> event featuring
>> your group, or anything close to it beyond Christmas
>> madrigals in
>> Our committee got very excited envisioning a
>> mini-Festival including
>> as much as we could get of SCA's in our area. You
>> are my first
>> contact to find if this is do-able on such
>> relatively short notice,
>> and if your society can/will be part of a
>> fund-raiser for our not-for-
>> profit organization?
>> We have an auditorium complete with
>> lights/sound/stage/seating that
>> could be utilized regardless of the outside
>> temp/weather. There are
>> grassy areas surrounding the parking (gravel) and
>> building that could
>> handle booths/vendors/small "acts" or other
>> entertainments and
>> activities -- it does not have to include any
>> singing, but that would
>> be welcomed. Our chorus members will be able to
>> volunteer person-
>> power, and, with access to the theater division's
>> wardrobe, we can
>> sort-of dress in period costumes ourselves. All of
>> Foundation Park
>> is around our site for possible cart rides or
>> knight-rides...if such
>> things are available. We could accommodate day and
>> evening events,
>> and have a license that allows alcohol at our event
>> (at least in our
>> building). There are dressing rooms with bathrooms
>> in the building,
>> and we can set up for serving a banquet, having a
>> ball, or I suppose
>> Court, or whatever.
>> Having only participated in Civil War reenactments,
>> I am unfamiliar
>> with what all you can actually gather together, and
>> at what expense,
>> If you could, please either e-mail me:
>> s49ls@... (that is S 4 9
>> L S, not S 4 9 1 S), or phone me at 242-4446. I
>> live in Mt. Vernon
>> and am available by phone most days from 10 am to 10
>> pm. Thank you
>> for your time, and I do hope that you can guide our
>> committee in our
>> dream of a unique family event for our community and
>> surrounding area.
