13.   Special Event: Saturday, 1 April, 2:00 p.m.

14.   Demo Etiquette- Please join me in ensuring that we provide an
entertaining and pleasant experience for every patron and volunteer.

a.       Be welcoming and inviting to patrons. We need to be aware of our
body language and tone of voice. We are there for the fair patrons, not the
other way around. Prioritize an approaching patron over concluding your
personal conversations.

b.      I will be onsite during all hours of the fair. The demo area is NOT
APPROPRIATE for gripes, complaints and gossip. Please restrict these
conversations to the Hospitality Tent, or if it is an issue that needs to
be addressed, discuss it with me as soon as possible. All resolvable issues
will be immediately addressed, with priority given to safety issues.

15.   Jarl Owen will present a short workshop on demos and recruitment at
the Namron Populace Meeting, Thursday, March 2.

16.   Kolfinna will attend the Wiesenfeuer Populace Meeting, Monday, March
6, to discuss our demo plans.

17.   If you can offer crash space in the OKC area, please contact Lady
Villana/Kayleigh Metz as soon as possible.
