I will be there!
There is NO practice tonight so come this weekend to beat up....ah....practice on the other members of the populace.
I heard some great things about the barony's fighters at war. I want to see these great fighters myself. Show off your skills to the people. Remember, this demo is to show what we do. Think of the people watching not as just spectators. Although they are not members of the SCA, they are of the Rhydderich Hael. They are of AEthelmearc!

Subject: [SCA-AE] Demo at the Amherst Museum on Aug. 21st--Buffalo NY
If anyone can make it out, it would be much appreciated.
There will be a big Demo at the Amherst Museum on Aug. 21st. Not only
will our participation help the Museum, but it will help our very own
Master Conner Bowsplitter; who is organizing the event for the Museum.
We will need as many people to help out as we did for the Brass Ring
We will need Fighters, Fencers, Throwers and A&S people of all
What's so important about this Demo? Well, it's the 396th anniversary
of the death of Countess Elizabeth Bathory. But aside from that, this
event is a major fund raiser for the museum and the Amherst
powers-that-be are talking about cutting the museum's budget. This
might be the last Scottish Festival the museum holds.
What do you get for volunteering? All of the sun you can stand; all of
the gatoraid you can stomach; a FREE pass to the Scottish Festival;
all of the fish-n-chips and birdies you can afford; music by Penny
Whiskey, Celtic Circle Ceilidh Band, Stone Row, Harpbeat, Hobson's
Choice, Carol Farrar, Step in Time, Sons of the Gaels and Mary
an auction; border collies and more bagpipes than you can shake a
Lady Biotta has offered to sponsor prizes for three tourneys: one each
for heavy, rapier and thrown weapons. And I will bring chocolate for
the artisans. All y'all has to do is to show up in the morning, do the
demo stuff (fight, talk to people, etc) and have fun. I know that most
of y'all are still recovering from Pennsic, but Conner scheduled the
festival so that it wouldn't conflict with War and most of y'all
already have a subnburn.
Even if you can't be there, tell all of y'all's friends about the
event. Send them to http://www.amherstmuseum.org/scottish.htm.
be there to run fencing and I'll bring my TW gear as well, but I can't
do it myself. I need the help of the Barony. So, mark down the 21st of
August on your calendar and come on out. Don't just do it for me;
don't just do it for the Barony; don't just do it for Jodi Foster. Do
it for Master Conner and the Amherst Museum!
