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.

> building class, including information on campfires for warm, campfires for
