Hello All,

     The demo slated for Thursday June 7, 2007 (at WW Thorne Stadium, near
M.O. Campbell Educational Center 1865 Aldine Bender Road)is in accord with
the theme of the Boy Scouts Twilight Camp.  Actually it has to do with the
theme of "Knights".  I truly appreciate all who are volunteering for this
worthy demo.  I will wait an interval to see the total amount of volunteers
and then make a schedule for shifts.  Anyone and everyone is welcome and we
will just do what we do best, shine brightly for "The Dream"!

                                                ciarnat at nww.net

We did a demo at the Twilight Camp a number of years ago, it was great fun.
However, they have not asked for us to return, perhaps they are not
currently focusing on the
middle ages.

As for working with Gate's Edge or Stargate, Ciarnet is the current
Hospitaler for Stargate,
though she also plays with Westgate.  Her original post went out to
Westgate, Gate's Edge,
Stargate and Loch.

Actually, considering the demo begins at 4:30, it's probably a good idea to
look for volunteers
who can participate that early in the day from a larger populace base, as
too few folks are off
work at that hour.

Hillary (who will have to take off work early if I'm able to participate).
