> MUSIC, DANCE, FOOD AND FELLOWSHIP!
> Come one, come all to the Scandinavian Fest in Plano
> THIS SATURDAY !!
>This is the 13th anniversary festival for The Wooden Spoon in Plano on
>Avenue K near 18th street. Not only is it a Scandinavian gift shop, but
>they are the central location for many Scandinavian organizations around
>the metroplex i.e., Sons of Norway, Vasa (a Swedish organization), etc.
>and they even have language classes (Norse, Swedish, Finnish, Danish and
>German) and meeting rooms!! This is an EXCELLENT OPPORTUNITY for us to
>promote the SCA in our area!! (and I cant wait to browse around the shop
>[grin] especially since they have Swedish woven linen there!).
>The owner says that she would like costume-clad members of the SCA to
>walk around and look pretty at her Festival. She is familiar with the SCA
>and wants to help us promote our club. So, please come out and help us
>promote the SCA in our area! We will have tables set up under a pavillion
>for A&S displays, promotions and crafts demonstrations (weavers?
>leathercrafers?). We are in need of more armored fighters, as well as
>marshalls to explain the fighting. Bring banners, flags, shields, anything
>colorful!! We really want to be colorful and flamboyant here! She is
>setting us up in the most visible spot out front!
>If you are a Scandinavian persona and/or have Viking garb already, by all
>means, please wear it! The owner never specified that she wanted just
>Vikings or Scandinavian persona, so just come in garb, walk around and have
>fun. If you are a fighter, this could be a pre-Sunday fighter practice.
>He who will fight a Saxon Fraybrother, pray, answer the call! If you are
>an artisan, please come display your wares and/or demonstrate your craft.
>MERCHANTS ARE WELCOME TO SELL THEIR WARES!! I just spoke with the owner
>and she says that she doesnt mind us merchanting at the festival.
>Please contact me and let me know if you are interested in coming so I will
>have an idea as to how many of us will be in attendance. The Festival runs
>from 10 am until 6 pm, this Saturday, September 8th. Even if you can just
>come and stay for a couple of hours, please let me know. If you plan to
>attend, please let me know what part of the day (morning/early
>afternoon/late afternoon) you intend to arrive and how long you can stay.
>Also, please let me know ASAP as the event is upon us!! Email or call me
>The directions are easy: Take I-75 north to Plano, exit at Park.
>Immediately get into your right lane on the service road. Turn right at
>the Lazy Boy sign (18th street), go up to Avenue K and take a right. The
>Wooden Spoon is the 2nd house on the right with flags out front.
>Festival parking is across the street in the Municipal Center parking lot.
>Here is the map:
>and here is their website:
>Thanks for promoting the SCA and lets have a lot of fun with this!
