Announcements

Hello Myrgan Wood!
It's time for, you guessed it, the Saskatoon Comic Expo! It is on September 16 and 17, and we need volunteers! This year, instead of a booth, we have space for an entire village. We will have tents, people demonstrating cool stuff, displays, medieval games, and once again outdoor fighting demos, which will include rapier, armoured, AND youth combat. "Wow!" you must be thinking. "That's a lot of stuff!" And it is. So much stuff that I cannot possibly do it all by myself. This is where we need YOU. (volunteering has the added bonus of getting into the expo for free.)
If you would like to demo any time of combat, please contact Baron Fjall and let him know when you are avaiable and what type of fighting you do.
If you are interested in helping with the set up of the display (Friday evening), or being on the schedule to hang around the tents and tables and keep an eye on stuff and talk to people (Saturday and Sunday), please contact Alric the Indecisive and advise him of you availability.
If you are interested in demonstrating cool stuff in the village, such as weaving or embroidery or leatherwork or woodwork or spinning or carving antler, or being the point person for this section of the demo, please contact Amya.
If I have forgotten anything vital, please also contact me. Lets make this the best Expo to date!
Thank you.
Yours in Service,
Amya Lyghtfot
