Not that my life is very exciting and you all are just waiting on baited breath to know what is going on or anything.
Ok we have a demo coming up on Saturday June 7th set up time 9:30 and will go to 1:30 I don't think it will go past 2 or so this is a demo for the boy scouts and cub scouts of pack/troop 26 we have done this demo in the past for just the cub-scouts but we have been asked to come back again this year and include the boy scout troop as well and there might be other troops from the surrounding areas joining as well.
I am calling on all of you again for this year. As in the past this is a full on demo so pass the word we are looking for any and all types of artisans and activities, fighters who can come and show case their stuff this is the first missive and will be following up with more info, if you have questions post them or contact me directly. I chose this weekend for it is one that is not up against any other major event. We have clearance for any and all martial activities. YES ANY AND ALL siege weapons have been there in the past thrown weapons is a go C.A as well.
The location is the Town of Esopus Town Hall Port Ewen N.Y
There is ample parking
electricity by the field if needed
Kitchen and an in door space and flushies
Again lets get the word out Cross post as anyone see fit
My two boys are in this pack if anyone cares to come hang out.
It was during this conversation with my friend that an area was found for the kids to play in on the second floor, thus freeing up table space and appeasing the adults that apparently complained to heads in charge of the event. They were whisked away so they werent "in the way" anymore. I was very agitated. I kept my cool but damn it, it isnt fair. When things like this happen, it makes me want to step away from all of it.
I understand those that do not have children, have chosen not to have their own for their own reasons, but please dont penalize those of us that do and want to enrich their lives with the SCA as well by bringing them to events where they can socialize, learn new things and themselves grow....because they are in the way. Someday, these children will be running things. Lets encourage their experience...not hinder or dampen it.
Just my two cents.
It's 430 am. I've been up since 1 due to coughing fit by Ryan whom i got to prop himself up with pillows to kill that. It worked. At 3 Kyle had coughing fit I helped settle with tissues for his nose and a drink and a little chuckle about how he must have grown taller in the night (and I swear he had). So here I sit wide awake unable to get back to sleep. I had milk and cookies and here I type. I find it funny how I am mother to all, caregiver to the family and never get the rest for myself. I need a vacation on a beach somewhere where I will get cared for and pampered.
So I suppose going to bed now would be pointless. Might as well stay up. Frustrating. A lot.
