Gee, you present a tiny little option and look at the response you 

I think that alot of this can be answered by paying a visit to the 
site.  They are open M-F from 9-4 (If I remember correctly).  Maybe 
we should coordinate a date when, those of us who can, go and 
meet with the guy and work these details out.  (Or maybe we could 
have a designated person go....)

Let's see if I can answer some of the questions here. (since I 
wasn't smart enough to thing of these things to begin with):
> How big?  Did they say what appliances they've got?  Type of ovens and

The stove is more for "heating" then totally prepping food.  Didn't 
check on the rest.

> Which mean we should make banners in October, right?  And maybe banner
> poles?

My thoughts exactly!!!

> Oh, and I believe we can get the kingdom to front part of the money.

Yes, if we do this, they take a higher portion of the profits (if I understand

could loan us the money.

I'm happy with whatever the Canton agrees on.  If I remember 
correctly, we agreed that at any event we would let the crown and 
Baron and Baroness in free.  I don't think you were at that meeting,

I dunno.  I'll check.

Again (scratching my head here). I dunno.

October 8, 15, or 22 is my vote.  the 29 is "okay" but I will be 
scrambling to finish stuff for Laurel's Prize tourney on the 4th of
