i have been reading all these suggestions and while i think they are good and practicle for saftey and all...
i remember a time when all we had were flashlights, tiki torches and lanterns and that was all. we got along fine by that. if we get to the point of lighting the whole area don't we lose a part of what we do? might as well stay home in the light and watch tv. this may sound like i am being an a**hol*, but part of the charm of the SCA is the fact that is was kinda dim and romantic.
again...using things for saftey is one thing, but i would like to see us try and keep it to just what we really need.

Buongiorno everyone, Well I have little strings of poison ivy on my arms and one leg from cleaning the site last Sat. morning. Not the first time however. It is everywhere. If you are allergic, don't walk around the site right after it has been mowed. That is the worst time to get exposed!
Anyway, there won't be a pathway from equestrian to the kitchen . We are going to mow the entire woods area between the stalls and the kitchen. We made a path to begin with but now will open up the whole thing. So I don't think we will need lights there. We could put one around the stall area and the water pump station we will make for them though.
The road will definately need some however. I told equestrian that we would light up the big tree that Brian, Pace, and Marius cleaned up for them to have a wider area to swing the trailers around on the road. I looked at the tree and it is pretty big around. I don't think solar lights would work on the road because their car headlights will be on. But a few hanging lanterns kinda light mini street lights would be nice. Marius are we allowed to put real coleman lanterns on shepherd hooks lining the road? Or do we have to use battery ones on the road? I have a coleman lantern that I could donate to the cause. I could buy a shepherd hook from Dollar Store. I already got one for the hospitaler banner. I also have many landscape lights but would hesitate to bring them because I already got burned at an event with theft. Who would figure? But still feel the sting of that one.
Things we thought of last Sat. that we could use-
any lanterns , lights, hooks for lighting pathways, showers etc.
door mats for outside each shower and rugs for the dressing rooms
small articles like toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo etc. for the dressing rooms and baskets to hold them. I have one made already just need 3 more.
I want to put a chair and small table outside each of the two Lords showers (the two furtherest from the dressing room)
I want to put a chair and table and lantern (battery) in each Ladies dressing room and a carpet to the closest showers. They will be the Ladies showers.
Anyone want to make a small banner or sign designating the showers as Lords and Ladies? We are going to put the grass fencing around them for privacy. And maybe make them a little more separate from each other.
Pace painted the showers to brighten them up Sat. They will suffice for this event anyway. There is a large ant bed by one doorway.
That is all I can think of. Any things I missed?
