About the moot.  I do have one of those metal, round firepits and it can be 
used on the cement part of the patio or the driveway.  All tent erecting 
will just aerate the lawn.

Subject: [CAM] Update on the May Moot- Site Change!


> Greetings from Rose Marian, May Moot Steward.
> A number of new administrative policy issues have recently come to light
> regarding our use of the Menomenee Falls Park facilities for our moots.
> Our Seneschal Geoffrey and his Lady Wife Tatiana are diligently trying to
> work through them with the Parks dept., but there is no guarantee that
> they will be resolved by Friday.
>
> After a discussion with Geoffrey, Tatiana, and Baroness Alice last night,
> we're moving the May Moot to the Baroness' estate and the nearby park,
> where there is plenty of room for fighting, melee practice if so desired,
> and archery is also an option.
>
> We realize we have a long tradition of moots at this park,
> and this need for site change is unfortunate.
> PLEASE don't bombard Geoffrey and Tatiana with questions.
> Let them continue to work with the Parks dept to see if a resolution may
> be reached for future use of the Park facilities by our Barony.
> They're both spending a lot of time dealing with this matter as it is.
>
> The May Moot starts at 10:30am and has the theme of Camping and related
> outdoor activities. This Moot includes the Spring Court of Their
> Excellencies Alasdair and Kateryn, and a Pot-Luck feast.
> The following classes will be presented
>
> "Fire Building with a Purpose": Lady Deonysia of Rye will present a fire
> building class, including information on campfires for warm, campfires for
> cooking, and celebratory campfires.
>
> "Period Camp Cooking with Coals": Following Deo's class (so the coals
> generated by Deo's class may be conveniently used) is a period outdoor
> cooking class by Lady Katlin Laureana Sewall, including the baking of
> bread over campfire coals.
>
> "Candlelight for Your Camp": Lady Nikea de Leon will be giving a
> candlemaking class, meant for the youth but the "young at heart" are
> indeed welcome to come and play. Come make candles to light your camp at
> night!
>
> "A Simple Wooden Camp Table": Lord Albrecht of Caer Anterth Mawr is giving
> a class on building a simple wooden camp table. This is a hands-on class,
> so participants will be expected to help work on the construction with
> hand tools. The completed table will be part of the auction at Border
> Skirmish.
>
> "Raising Your Roof": Erection of 4 types of period pavilions. Starts at 
> 1pm
> Contemplating making or buying a pavilion? Come and see how they are
> constructed and erected, and what might be best for you.
> The owners will be on hand for questions during erection.
> Pavilions available for learning are:
> A round pavilion from Count Valerius and Lady Adeliz,
> A marquee pavilion from Lady Marie la Falconniere
> A Viking A-Frame Pavilion from Comtesse Guinevre du Dragon Vert
> A double Bell French wedge pavilion from Lady Deonysia of Rye
>
> "Event Camping Roundtable": There is no teacher like experience!
> Bring your "storm stories" from camping at events. Share what happened,
> and suggestions for fixing damage to your camps and preventing problems at
> future events.
>
> "Youth and Camping Events": Presented by Lady Nikea de Leon. For the
> youth-What to expect and how to prepare for a camping event. Youth may
> bring camping gear for review and repair/maintenance suggestions.
>
> "People in Period Contest": The youth will present/perform a song, story,
> or poem about a period historical person of their choice. Lady Nikea is
> supplying prizes for the best presentations. We hope to make this contest
> "pre-court" entertainment if the Baron and Baroness agree.
>
> There are a couple of other classes under discussion/development.
>
> The fire-related classes (campfire, cooking, candlemaking) classes will be
> located at Baroness' Alice's home (close by a water source.)
> Location of the others I need to discuss with the individual instructors
> per the site change.
>
> More details will be forthcoming.
> Thank you for your patience and understanding.
