Also, if someone has made up flyers for gate thats great :) i will make sure to tell my gate people as they change shifts whats the haps.  do we have a map with the designated areas on them?  also is there a comp list?  :) Gate will close at noon on Saturday!!  We have just a few spots to fill as far as i know....

I will probably come out on thursday and set up the equestrian field, list field, gate and waterbearing if possible!!  thats 2 less to worry about on friday.  do we have a pavillion for waterbearing?  what about gott cans do we have 2 of those for waterbearing as well?  and as far as supplies......????  what is on the list for supplies as a norm?  I have solicited some help from the wonderful Grishka as long as we treat him nice he will help when he can at waterbearing but we will need folks to help out at the table as much as possible!

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

I've had a lot of suggestions for fire prevention at Defender.  I'm not certain that I can get to them all, or even remember them all, so if you have an idea, please help me make it happen.

The two biggies of course are our allowance for cigarette smokers and camp stoves.  I want to centralize any fire potential as much as possible so we're not scattering resources.  My thought, or plan, is to rake two areas in the kitchen/ storage area.  The camp stove area being immeadiatly adjacent to the kitchen and the smoking area down a bit further toward the showers.  Both areas will be shaded and in close proximity to trees.  By rake, I mean absolutely bare of ANY combustable material.  The pine straw must be completly removed within the two areas and at least 15' beyond.  That's my main priority for the coming work weekend.  Please bring a rake, if you have one.

We'll coordine off the area with barrier tape or rope and post the fire rules.  We'll have water on hand, sand, fire extinguishers, Smokey the Bear, and Fire Chief Hobbs waggin a finger in the smokers face, if possible.  :)  We'll scrounge whatever chairs are available, for comfort.

The camp stove area will be set with a couple of tables and fire safety items.

I want to post fire rules everywhere there's a flat spot, so if someone has a staple gun, please bring it.

With Alaric's permission, we will establish a second smoking area at or near Swiencamp for the evening activities.  I have yet to discuss it with him, so this idea is tenative.

There is one tree across the road near the shower.  That will also have to be removed this weekend.  It's small, but tall.  I'll check that my saw is running and whack it up.

The list areas need a good gongferming.  The chips are dry, so it should be enjoyable.  Bring a shovel if you are squeamish about such things.
