    Here is more info on the demo. He would like to know exactly how
many are planning to be there and if you plan to stay for dinner, the
campfire, and overnight at the camp. I will find out exactly what we'd
need to bring on Monday.
    We have several hours and can break the demo into parts since they
expect about 100+ people.
    My question to those who are coming, what do you what to present
(besides fighting)?  Can everyone be there by noon?

     Subject: Map to Camp Mitre Peak

     This is a scanned map to the Girl Scout Camp.  The recommended
route is I-20 west to Monahans - Exit Rt
     18. South about 7 miles to 1776.  There are a couple of zig-zag
stops and starts but it is essentially a
     straight route almost directly into Alpine.  Once in Alpine you
will drive through town and take a right
     (North) on Rt 118 approx. 9 miles to Co. Rd. 1837 (left), then 3
miles to the camp.  Co Rd 1837 is easy to
     miss although there is a small road sign indicating a turn off and
a large Camp Mitre Peak sign to the left of
     the turn off.

     The toll free number to the camp (although not always easy to get
through on the weekend) is

     I look forward to hearing from you about the members you will have
with you and how much of the day you  would like to be with us.
Also, we are having an event staff meeting (about 1 hour) on Monday,
17 at 7 PM.  It will be held at the Girl Scout Program Center in Midland
Dengar St.  If you or a representative of SCA could make that meeting it

would be helpful.  Let me know and I can give you directions if you need
