Lady Giliana,
   I see, thank you.  Well, for the sake of discussion, I feel the demo
should go on.  Our artisans represent a very diverse cross section of what
we do, that combined with the fighters that have volunteered,it shows we are
not one dimensional. Even the lone chivalric fighter could show armour and
weapons, while discussing the armoured combat as we do it in the SCA.  Where
there is a will there is certainly a way.  This is all predicated on the
belief that we would be doing the demo to either educate or recruit,  if is
only being used as a form of entertainment for an activity at the library,
then by all means cancel.  I remain,

ever in service

Tomas
