Greetings friends!

As you all know, HE Elizabeth has tasked me with stewarding a tiny
tourney *Sunday,
August 5th*.  It's all coming together well, but I have a few requests and
favors to ask of my neighbors to really get this party going:

1. An opinion poll:  Would we rather have someone grill/bring a grill and
each bring his own food to cook OR pot luck some cold (hot weather) goodies
OR to each his own?  We have the space to set up a community table or
pavilion and share a lunch with our friends and family, but it WILL be hot.
 If anyone would like to volunteer a grill and cooking supplies, or even to
grill things for others, please let me know and we'll arrange it!
 Otherwise, depending on response, we'll probably have a pot luck afternoon

2. Anyone with list field supplies close to hand, please get in touch with
me soon.  Chrestien, Don Armand, Sir Simonn?  I am in need of ropes for at
least 2 tourney-sized fields, stakes, etc. I also need anyone with
marshaling staves to bring them out.  This is a demo, and NOT official in
any way, but I'd really like to show our newbies what a tourney *should* be
like, so the closer we can get to 'actual', the better.

3. Rudy, please contact me ASAP.

4. Anyone wishing to teach classes or set up A&S display, please do so!  HE
Theresa will be coordinating the set-up on site, so you might give her a
heads-up.  I would love to have Don Armand & Sir Simonn teach a field
etiquette class just before we take the field, if that can be arranged.  HE
AmberLea, who is sponsoring the lists for her birthday (and coming up with
some fun scenarios) will teach a List Mistressing class for anyone
interested in learning.

5. MOOT!  There will be a Moot Court after the fighting.  There will be
PRIZES for the champions of the lists! We need prizes to give, if you have
anything cluttering up your keep and would like to see it go to a worthy
cause (or lucky duck...).  Lord Chrestien, your presence will be REQUIRED,
per HE Elizabeth.

Any questions, concerns, suggestions are welcome!  I will be at Populace,
albeit late, possibly at Guild Together, and at TE's for movie night, and
can be reached there, through treasurer @ bordermarch.org OR c.birtciel @
gmail.com (no spaces), on Facebook, or you can call/text Lady Jillian to
leave a message 409) 926-2367.

Spread the word!  I'll have an event announcement ready and send it out to
various lists by tonight, but the more folks we can host, the merrier we'll
Yours in Service,

Thomas Peregrine
