We feel that these are good ideas. Two smoking areas is fine with us. We
will have some chairs for the Nobles Luncheon and they could be moved into
the smoking area near the showers when not in use at lunch. There will be
around 6. Swein camp is fine and love the idea of using the fire pit there
for smoking area. I know the Swein are good SCAers and will watch the party
goers like a hawk. DSD we would like you to talk to the fire prevention
ideas at morning court. Do you want us to bring the Kawasaki? It cannot hold
a large water container , too much weight. But we could bring it if need be.
The Princess may want to see the famous stones and I could ride her up there
or to archery if need be as well. By the way, Sir Keif, if you are out
there? Remember you promised to spiffy up the Stones! xo G
