- Kevin asks that all members be registered (turn in a 2012
membership form & check to see that information on the medical form is still
correct) and up to date on their dues by 5/19/12. If there is an issue
preventing this, please contact Kevin or Brian to discuss the situation/make
alternate plans. Members will not be allowed to participate in group
practices/events without being registered and paying dues beyond that date.
This is due to insurance liability...we don't want someone to get hurt and
then not be covered.
- Each division (Renaissance/Civil War/Pirate) needs to set
at least one practice time per month in addition to our monthly meeting. The
Renaissance Division is up and running regularly, but it would be nice to see
the Pirate & Civil War Divisions get things going regularly as well. This is
especially important with the Amana Faire approaching, as we want to have a
date, time, and location to refer new people to go to who are interested in
possibly joining. Heads of these divisions need to contact the Officer of
Schedules with these practice times each month as well as notify Kevin of what
will be done there (training, crafts, etc.) in case he is contacted by someone
interested who might want to attend/check it out.
- We all get busy with other obligations and Warick is a
hobby, but please make every effort to participate in meetings & practices
prior to upcoming events, as we need to know that everything is ready to go
and that enough people are commited to attending the event. To be able to do a
well rounded performance during an event, at least 6 people are needed. To
attend an event w/out doing performances (only demonstrations), at least 4
people need to commit to going.
- Kevin or the Steward will attempt to attend each
Division's events at least partially to be available to give out information
to potential members, etc.
- Past events that the Civil War Division participated in
was discussed: Keokuk, Leon, Pioneer Days in Ft. Dodge, Cedar Rapids, and Iowa
Veteran's Home in Marshalltown Iowa.
- Past events that the Pirate Division participated in:
Keokuk, and Iowa Veteran's Home in Marshalltown Iowa.
- It was noted that all upcoming and past events can be
found on the internet so that Warick can begin planning ahead.
