Couple of short things:
I'm going to be taking a look-see at the dance trailer Sunday of land grab
around noonish, I want to make up a list of anything that will need to be
bought before floor assembly. I probably won't be on site Monday or Tuesday
Floor assembly is Wednesday of 1st week (Aug 10th), 10am is when I intend
on being there, but if Domenico wants to start earlier it's up to him ;-)
I'll try to provide some snacks and one power drill. Anyone that can show
up to help, especially with a charged up drill, will have my gratitude ;-)
The more drills, the shorter time assembly takes.
Disassembly is after the absolute beginner's class is finished, 5pm on
Friday Aug 20th. Same applies. Although I'm scheduled to teach that
beginner's class, I might be stuck on the battlefield until 5ish, so can I
pass it off to someone? I have a few people who didn't get a class of
their own this year cause the schedule got full fast, I'm going to ask them
privately first, but if any of you are interested drop me a line.
Two big things that I'll be especially in need of help this year:
1. Getting the word out where and when dancing takes place in the evenings.
We are still in a period of transition with the dance tent, and I'd hate to
think that there are people that will miss evening dancing on a night just
because they didn't know about the dance tent. We have web and on-site
booklet publicity on this, but I'm need of more people on the ground,
especially for the first week (when evening dance is in the tent, then the
evening balls are in the tent and the open dance is in the barn).
Does anyone who will be there early want to do me the favor of making up a
few flyers and posting the information?
2. Running evening dance in the barn on Saturday Aug 14th and especially
Monday Aug 16th. A few people have tentatively offered to run these, the
best thing will be to get in touch with me once I'm at Pennsic. As always,
if anyone wants suggestions on making a balanced playlist, I'm more than
happy to help. Keep in mind those two nights have an Italian ball of some
sort going on in the tent, so the barn dance list is likely to be sparse in
Thank you all again, I'm looking forward to dancing with as many of you as
-Lyev (so much fabric, so little time until Pennsic....)
