Greetings, good gentles of the Western Region!
I hope all have returned happy and healthy from Gulf War. Before you
unload all your armor and crafts, please remember our Western Region
demo at CeltFesTexas at the athletic grounds of Odessa College the
weekend of April 8 & 9.
The Illuminated Threads guild will be demonstrating textile arts, and we
need more representation of what the SCA can offer folks here in West
Texas. The Celtfest folks really, really want to see fighting. Please
let me know if you can come and help and promote the SCA here in our
beloved Western Region.
We're considered CeltFest volunteers, so get in free. It's a fun
weekend--watching the Highland games (those athletes are *HUGE*!), visit
the many vendors, listen to lots of great Celtic music (traditional to
rock), take workshops on subjects from Bodhran to How to Wear a Great
Kilt, and on and on. Please make plans to come help out.
If you can come, please send me your name for the volunteer list at the
Thanks for your help!
P.S.: The host hotel for the Fest is Quality Inn and Suites Odessa, who
are offering special rates for the weekend for Celtfest folks. Their
number is 432-333-3931.
