To Northkeep and Beyond,

June 6th-11th is the OSU Tulsa Humanities event called the Chautauqua. OSU
Tulsa has asked us to please come out and just do some SCA activities before
their speakers take the stage. This is a week long evening event centered on

might enjoy.

I would like us to do crafts, armored combat, persona play and be there to

till 9pm and our participants are welcome to stay for the seminars (for

If you can help with the demo even if only one night for just the one hour
they are asking us to be there then please let me know. Jane Varmecky who is
the university coordinator for this event has been very excited about having
us there and I would hate to let her down.

Kind Regards,
