Festivites!! The following events will be scattered through out the event, time allowing.
Love God/Goddess of the Wetlands Contest: 
Prove to all present your skills at either: pick up lines, marriage proposals, serenades, 
etc. Anything to endear you to the opposite sex without actually touching them.

BUT...  you must incorporate water into your act. Extra consideration will be given for the 
use of actual water in your act. There should be an even ratio of female=male judges for 
fairness. The prize could be a box of lubricated (we ARE the Wetlands after all) condoms for 
adults. *grin*

Woad the Warrior Contest
Using water-based paint, the winner is the person who can most artistically "woad" their 
warrior. Paint will be provided.  However, it is BYOW (Bring Your Own Warrior). The prize 
could be a belt favor w/ a screened paint palettes or something similarly artistic on it & 
some sort of indicator of where they received it.

Also, Gideon is running Gideon's Crypt through out the event. There are things for kids to do 
with it so they can be involved in a "safe" activity. Fnord (kha764 at can tell you 
more about the Crypt since he went through it.

Minors - do not drink alcohol, adults - do not offer alcohol to minors. 

Minors need emergency medical attention waivers signed by a parent or guardian to 
enter the site and a site waiver signed by the adult authorized by your 
parent/guardian to give permission to allow medical treatment. You can get them from 
this letter, (look at the end of this message).

Gate tokens will be hand made, 250, by thursday the 23rd.

I am putting out a call for all those entries that were perfect scores at quals to 
be displayed at the event:
	Vaar's Knighting Scroll - by Fionnghal - Framed if possible
	Vaar's Chainmail - by Vaargard
	Tiger Belt - by Denah
	Japanese Leather Armor - by Tiger
	Barbarian Armor by Zol

I also want to publish Lucas' paper on the Dream in the Siren (which will be at the 
event, cost is a postage stamp). It is short and to the point. It was not a perfect 
score but it won 1st in Statesmenship essay.

The Wetlands' Overall Artisan will be announced at the event. The process is: the best five 
of of the different arts and sciences events entered. That means that if you entered 5 
3-d art entries and one in each of the other categories only one of the 3d art 
entries will be used toward you final score. Only those who entered 5 or more 
different arts entries will be eligible for the title.

The cooks will have commemorative aprons.

The servers will have commemorative aprons, (write to Spryghte to volunteer, Sp. give 
me a final number by the 22nd!).

NO PETS!!!! We are sharing the site with horses. Leave your pets at home I do not 
care if it is a cat or a mouse or a bird, NO PETS!!! There is no shade!!

The Gypsy's will be in charge of the "Lost and Found" since they are clean up crew. 
Whatever is found will be at the gate so as you leave you can ask the head gypsy if 
he found it. Whatever is left will be auctioned off at Midreign as one lot.

There will be a sectioned off area for: the Governors - do not camp here if you do 
not want to be awaken at 7am by a baby.
The ditch field - if you all want to fight do it here and NOT at you tent.
The fighting field - for whatever you all decided to do once the althing is over.

Please remember that the althing is to pass the Corpora Book of Laws AS IS. We can make the 
changes in spelling, and missing titles later. That is what midreign is for. We all 
have our little list of little things to tweak. But add them up and it becomes 200 
members with 5 to 10 different things to talk about. You do the math. We will not 
get to eat while we argue but our guests will get fed.

Medical crisis. We will call the EMS for you. We are not certified to help you 
beyond a band aid so bring your own first aid kit, aspirins, Tums, sun block, and 
extra bactine. I do not know if there are mosquitos in that particular area so bring 
repellant as well. Make sure it is not the perfumed kind, it does not work here. 
There is no shade.

Merchants. I have put out a call for merchants so maybe we will have a high turn 
out. Houston is known for its outstanding SCA merchants hopefully one or two who are 
not going to Stepps Warlord will turnout. If you are a merchant make sure you have 
your permits. The site owner will be there on Saturday. No permits, no sales! We 
wanted to charge a booth fee but WE need a permit to do that soooo no booth fee this 

Bring out every single banner you have in your possession. We want color everywhere. 
I will try to have banners at the entrance so you will not miss it.

WAIVER FOR MINORS					updated May 2, 1996

Waiver and EMS Authorization 
for members under 18 years.

Amtgard is a non-profit, non-sectarian group devoted to recreating elements of the 
medieval and fantasy genres. The thrust of Amtgard is both recreational and 
educational, with major group efforts devoted to reconstructions of medieval combat. 
Amtgard weapons are safe, foam-padded replicas of the real things. This waiver will 
allow the person for whom it is listed to participate in Amtgard functions and allow 
emergency medical attention at need. We hope this will not be necessary, but it is 
required. If participant is under 14 they may NOT actively "fight" in an event 
without Crown AND Parent/Guardian permission. Parents of those under 14 must be 
present at ALL times during fighting events if the participant is playing in a 
fighting capacity unless otherwise authorized by the Crown.

person and property presented by such participation.  I agree and understand that 
members willfully follow rules as set in the current Rules of Play, and that I have 
read the rules and understand them myself. As such I agree to release and hold 
blameless Amtgard, Kingdom of the Wetlands, it's group chapters, and those within 
from and against all claims, demands, and actions in respect to damage upon the 
person for who I have authorized or property arising in connection with their 
participation in Amtgard functions. Furthermore, I accept and understand that 
neither Amtgard nor any Amtgard member is responsible for any injuries received or 
given at any Amtgard function.
