Greetings, we do have plenty of squirt caps in the supplies. I just couldn't find the large bottles I used to buy at Wal mart and we were on our way to the event at the time. Bummer all around. Didn't realize the tops wouldn't fit until we were there getting ready. It has been 2 years since I used that stuff myself. We had clorox water on hand and I know it was used as best as it could be. If you reuse bottles for each event you need to get the bucket ahead of time and sterilize all used bottles before the event, throw away messed up ones and replace. Been there done that. Yes it was a bummer not finding the big bottles in a pinch . I am sorry about that as well. But next year we will know better ahead of time. That is where having a waterbearer in the position does a Barony good!   :)  Just sayin.xo

One of the problems we had with waterbearing for defender was the lack of squirt tops and once someone puts their mouth on the bottle it cannot be used anymore for other people. I am sure you can see the sanitary reasoning behind this. If a couple of people donated a case of water 1L or 44oz size, the bottles can be used for many events and the squirt tops can be sanitized between individual uses. A good waterbearing setup should have at least 20 of these bottles at a minimum in order to keep a flow of lids being sanitized and plenty of bottles going around to the fighters without a lot of rushing.

>     After this past Defender, it was good to assess our waterbearing supplies.  We seriously need bottles with the squirt caps.  If any of you would like to do the Barony a HUGE favor and an easy one at that, buy the water bottles that are good size like 1L or so, with the spout tops on them, and when you drink the water donate the bottle and spout to the Barony.  We really need to get a supply of them ready, cleaned etc for our next event.
