While we're on the subject,
The lady putting on the museum ren faire will be at the park this weekend to shoot a short video to put on their website. We need both heavy and light fighters there as well as some A&S.
I know it's a lot I'm asking from you, one show this weekend, another two weeks later, and then Gothic the week after that, but we need this. This is could be a great boost for the SCA throughout the kingdom. We can use this to show city councils, other museums, arts festivals, the public in general, what a great thing the SCA is. If we do this right, it will be a big boost in our membership throughout. So please come out and help, it's only five hours in a shaded area with food, drink, fine friends telling war stories, some fighting, and an excellent sword display all mixed together.
If you do come out, I promise not to bother you again until next time.

Seneschal of Bonwicke
P.S.  As an added bonus, the museum has air conditioning and bathrooms we can use.

Come hither and help!

The Museum of Texas Tech is seeking volunteers to assist with Lubbock's
first Renaissance Festival! The event is scheduled for Saturday, August 29
from 11AM-4PM at the Museum of Texas Tech University. This FREE family
festival will be happening both indoors and out; outdoor activities will be
concentrated on the museum's west lawn. Both volunteers and visitors will
enjoy the event's sights and sounds from sword-fighting demonstrations and
swashbuckling cinema to period music and theatre.

All volunteers are asked to commit to two-hour shifts, though longer time
commitments are encouraged. Shift times begin at 9AM for assistance
with-event set-up, and each volunteer is asked to arrive 15 minutes before
his/her shift begins. Volunteer duties include working at the information
desk, greeting guests, assisting in the galleries, and helping with hands-on
activities like lawn bowling, the mini-Flatland Games, decorating
illuminated initials, and making heraldic shields. A hospitality room will
be available for all volunteers.

Not available on August 29th? MoTTU is also seeking volunteers to assist
with supply preparations for this large-scale event. A Volunteer Work Day
has been scheduled for Thursday, August 20, from 5-8PM at the Museum. Other
event-prep volunteer opportunities exist; times and dates to be determined
based upon volunteer and staff availability.

For additional information or to sign-up to volunteer, please contact the
MoTTU Education Division by phone - 806.742.2442 - or via email -
museum.education@ ttu.edu. Please note that some of the event volunteer
positions require advance training; volunteer training is scheduled for the
Thursday prior to the festival - August 27 - from 5-8PM.
