A very good turn-out, with nine adults and eight kids out. A new family came out (hi, guys! Welcome aboard!), which was great to see.

Discussed was a really, really wide range of topics from SCA feasts, fighting, persona creation, and sources for horns and hides through designs for a water pump at Ulrich's for the camping event (Freydis brought along plans she'd drawn up for a pump system from the spring); Ulrich made some excellent suggestions on a way to filter the water more; to provide a larger amount of free water to draw from; and a way to drain the system for winter so the pump isn't damaged by freezing.

Maeve worked on Almaric's fencing hood some more, and showed off his new lovely deep red fencing shirt. Ulrich worked on a pair of ankle boots he is adapting to look more period for wearing in mud at events. Freydis and Valonia didn't bring anything to work on but did discuss another sewing project: Simple tabards in the baronial colours of blue and white for servers at feasts to wear, intended as a gift to the Baron and Baroness when they come to the feast at the end of March. Freydis will bring the fabric and her sewing machine to Sobey's next Wednesday; if you want to help out she can get you the material and plans then. Bring your sewing machine along too!

Almaric showed off his fighting gear, and gave Ulrich his rattan, which he had been able to pick up for him at the Swishy Pokey Hokey Pokey. Happily, with some effort, Ulrich was able to fit it into his car.

See you at Sobey's next week!
