Re: Remaining authorization opportunities before War

Poster: Greg Prevost <gregp@ix.netcom.com>

Funny you should mention that as I was about to post this anyway!

This weekend coming up there is Six "P"s down here in South Carolina.  It is
traditionally the last chance you have to authorize before the war!  So you
want to get that Heavy, Rapier, or even Combat Archery authorization done so
you can fight at the war come on down....  Authorizations start at 11:00am
and run till 2:00pm (if you can't make it before two, let me know and I can
probably arrange something) and as soon as all the authorizations are done
we will have a war practice.  Last year we had someone come from Maryland to
get in that last minute authorization.  (see bottom of letter for the Event

July 25th - Fourth Annual Pre-Pennsic Event

Cydllan Downs presents its Fourth Annual Pre-Pennsic event at Congaree
Presbyterian Church in
Cayce, SC (same site as last year). As the name implies, we'll be getting
everyone ready for
Pennsic. Classes planned so far include: painting floor clothes (bring
canvas with a lightly jessoed
surface and brush), cooking safely at a primitive site, Pennsic furniture,
campfire songs and
drumming. Anyone interested in teaching a class should contact the autocrat.
There will be period
board games available for all to use. Merchants are welcome.

There will be no tournaments, but pick-up fighting will be available for
those wishing to challenge
our notorious summer heat. This will be your last chance to authorize
(heavy, rapier, combat
archery) before Pennsic. There will be no A&S competitions, but please bring
your work to
display and share your knowledge with others.

This is a day-trip event. The site opens at 9AM and closes at 5PM. If people
are interested, we
will go as a group to a local eatery for dinner. The fee includes a
lunch/potluck. We will supply
the meat please bring a sidedish that feeds approximately 6 people. Sidedish
can be fruits,
vegetables, breads, cheeses. BYOD (bring your own drinks)

Fees are: Adult $5.00 Children 6 - 12 $2.00 Under 6 Free. The site is dry
and no pets will be
allowed. Reservations are not required, but will be accepted by mail. Checks
