At the Heimdallson's. Ulrich and a friend, Jeff, attended; hi Jeff! Olivia joined us later; and then Valonia popped in briefly as well.

Total in attendance: Six, I guess, if you count Valonia and Freydis (who just stayed upstairs sewing Mikhail's gambeson, which had been put on the back burner while feast garb was rushed through for Twelfth Night). Realistically, three.

Mikhail and Ulrich gave Jeff the grand tour and filled him in on all the details of building armour; what materials are needed; talked metal and woodworking tools; showed him some patterns... Jeff has a workshop and is interested in possibly making items, including armour, for sale to the SCA.

Freydis and Olivia discussed merchanting at the event more, and infrastructure ideas; Ulrich and Freydis talked about site prep and future site use, and construction methods and materials.

Valonia briefly discussed dance; we are looking forward to getting a regular dance practise together as well.

Armouring/workshop session next Saturday as well; starts at two unless you want to come earlier (or later); just give us a heads up if you do.
