Greetings all!
A month or so ago I put out a call for Norse personas or like-minded people who  
might be interested in participating in a demo for my school.  A couple have 
emailed me privately but I'd loved to have my students see all that we have to 

I've got this set up for this Thursday October 28th.--it would be for maybe 1 or 
2 hours--for my AP Literature class--(and I would probably invite the senior 
class to watch also since they will be studying Beowulf soon)   So I'm talking a 
start time of about 12:30 or 1:00 and finishing up by 2:30 would be best-- 
Depending on weather we'd either be inside my classroom or outside under the 
trees -- (I just checked the weather and it looks like sunny and pleasant on 
Thursday) (We have a good sized area next to the school that would be perfect 
for some fighting-)
 I will be following my Beowulf unit with a short unit on Canterbury Tales 
which  would allow for some non-Viking personas as well---
As I said in my email to the list I would really love to have some fighters come 
up so my students can see a little bit of combat, perhaps a bard or two and some 
crafters with their  wares....My students on the other hand really want to see 
ME get gacked a few  times so if there's a fencer or two out there who can make 
the drive that would  be pretty awesome also :) 
I don't know who all would be able to get away from work on this day-- 
I'd love to have a big turn out for the demo-- but I'm being trying to be 
realistic since it so far out of Tulsa--
