Lathrop Demo October 10th

Greetings Citizens of Forgotten Sea!

The annual demo in Lathrop, MO at the Horse & Falcon site is October 10th-12th.
Unfortunately, this is the weekend of Crown Tournament, BUT the really big day for the demo is Friday October 10th. That is the day that hundreds of kids come on school field trips to see the living history fair. It is a really fun demo with a lot of stuff for us to see and do as well. As I recall, several people scored some nice tools from one of the merchants last year. And, speaking of merchants, we can sell things! Anything that you can think of that relates in any way to what we do. Those kids have money that they are dying to spend!

They really appreciate our participation. In fact, they appreciate it so much that it saves us over 2/3 of the regular cost of using the site for Horse & Falcon!

You may know that we had decided to not have Horse & Falcon in 2015 so that another group could do a 3-day event without major competition. They have found that they will not be able to make that event happen until at least the following year, so Horse & Falcon 2015 is a possibility again. But, if we are not able to gather enough people to do a reasonable demo, we will have to pay the regular site cost and will be facing a much higher financial risk if the weather is bad.

If you have the flexibility to come and help that day 9 AM to 3 PM (or earlier if you can help set up!), please contact Baroness Ylva. baroness@bfs-kc.org

We need to commit to the demo or bow out very soon, so please respond ASAP, 9/21/14 at the latest. Specify what you would want to do at the demo: fighting, archery, Calon Steel, A&S, a pretty face... and whether you could be there Friday, Saturday, or both.

Thanks very much!
Baroness Ylva
