Children's Activities

	I just read the talks about getting children more involved in 
fighting.  VIVAT!!  As a teenage child of the SCA, the frustration of 
not being able to fight is tremendous.  All I could do was sit, watch, 
and be a waterbearer.  I turned 18 4 months ago and began fighting. It 
looked so easy from the spectators point of view, but now I am learning 
different.  If there is some way that children could be incorporated 
into the fighting process, even something as simple as classes teaching 
the correct names of weapons or the different shots that are used, would 
make us feel more like we belonged and even help out when we are old 
enough to fight.  Anything is better than nothing.
	If I can help in any way, please let me know.  Omce I learn 
everything, I would be more than willing to teach some of these classes.
