     I think they would have just called it a day's work.  

     Let's face it...SCA events, with a few exceptions are not "period" in
themselves.  The best we can hope for is to make our little corners of the
world as period as we would like.  My philosophy is "I won't mess up your
game if you don't mess up mine."  It seems to work most of the time.
