Last year, Lady Muirghein scripted an excellent rapier demo for Celtfest
that was enjoyed by all spectators. M'Lady, could you be encouraged to
do the same this year?
Armored warriors, is there among you a good gentle who would be
interested in organizing that part of the demo? A fun, historic
scenario like that Lady Muirghein coordinated last year works well,
IMHO. (A novice being tested by her teachers and advancing to the next
stage of her training was the plot.) Perhaps Scot vs English? Insults
tourney format? These demo tourneys are for fun, not for fame or
reward, so a fighter can really let his/her hair down and play. Get the
spectators rooting for the good/bad guy...dramatic deaths galore...this
can also be fun for marshals as they set the stage....
Wounded warriors, as we've had someone already volunteer, please come
and bring your armor for show and tell. We're planning to be showing
the video "In Search of the Dream," so anyone handy to explain the
action on the screen is encouraged to do so.
Anyone with a period pavilion is *so* welcome, to add ambience to our
blue pop-ups. <G>
Also, any of you with other things you'd like to demo, please let your
voice be heard--storytelling, illuminating, leatherworking, woodworking,
armor and helm crafting--there are so many facets of the SCA story we
Please let me know your wishes and ideas.
