> Greetings Northkeep,
> Tonight at populace meeting one of the scrolls for our upcoming Castellan

> the artisans were working. I do not know the extent of the damage or if 
> the weeks of work that went into the scroll were ruined. This is not only 
> a real shame it is a real disappointment.
> Children are more than welcome at fighter practice, so are parents, but if

> sure that they are well behaved and at the very least they respect the 
> other people in attendance and their space. There is plenty of room for 
> everyone at the hall and the fact that tonight the children who caused 
> this issue were warned multiple times to not run through the area and yet 
> they still did. The artisans working even moved out of the way so that 
> they were in an unobtrusive area as possible and still this happened. I 
> know it was likely an accident and that kids will be kids, but this is not 
> the first time such problems have occurred at the hall. I have to wonder

> it could have cost us not only the use of the hall but it could have 
> possibly ruined an irreplaceable piece of American military memorabilia.
> Please continue to bring your families to practice, and please have fun 
> when you get there, please just do so with more care, and please do not
