09/09/2014 Discussion:


- We did an amazing job raising money for the group!!!

- There was a noise complaint about those who stayed late after faire Sat. night to party/play cards with people from other groups in the royal feast hall. The queen and Kevin have asked us to stick to our camp site and keep it down so that others may sleep.

- Three events were voted on/posted on the Warwick main page to participate in and we are checking into doing the bell ringing at Merle Hay Mall in Dec. like we did last year.

- The church will not be available Sat. Sept. 20th for sword practice.

- Ivan is fixing the chairs that were damaged last weekend and all agreed that some of the funds will go to purchasing more chairs since our group is growing.

- During our shows this weekend, we need to be sure we are not putting our backs to the crowd while watching the fight going on ahead of you, so we will line up by the jousting ropes on either side and look towards the crowd instead.

- Amy and Jeremiah are going to pick up some red & yellow fabric this week to use on helms during the shows this weekend to designate what side each fighter is on.

- We talked about making a tent cover for the balloon pop tent.
