Greetings M'lords and ladies.

I present myself as Castellan for the Barony of Stargate and invite you to
help in repairing our tables and sorting pavillion poles this weekend (Feb
16th) at a work day to be held at my house.  For directions, please contact
me through e-mail or call 281.773.7922 (please, no calls after 10 p.m.).

So far it looks as if the weather will cooperate in giving us a nice day to
do the work in.

The plan is to replace the metal rims on the under-side of the Stargate
tables with wood strips that have been pre-cut and pre-drilled.  This will
make them easier to carry as well as providing a sturdier table and less
wear on the leg-pieces, which receive more stress when used as "handles" for

A seperate area will be used to seperate and sort the poles for the baronial
popup pavillions.  I would like for each set of poles to be set up and taped
using colored tape to help in future setups as well as insure that each set
of poles is (actually) a set.

While I will provide a stew for lunch, I would like to invite you all to
bring a dish that would feed four or five people to help round out the meal.
I'll provide the drink, but bring your favorite if you're so inclined.

There will be a need for power tools, especially electric drills with screw
bits (while I'm certain we only need philips-head bits, please bring both in
case the metal edges use flat-head.  I have two, but we have 20 tables that
have to have metal bits removed and wooden bits screwed in (a total of six
wooden strips (2 long and 4 short) per table).  If you have an orbital
sander and some fine grit sandpaper please bring that as well.

If the weather turns against us the work is currently canceled unless
someone knows of a covered place that we could move the work area to.  It
has to be big enough to handle eight foot tables moving around hither and

In closing I'd like to remind you of an old saying, "More hands makes less

Thank you.
