Pearl Creek Elementary Demo Report

Thank you to everyone who could make the Pearl Creek school demo on April 10! Taran, Briana, Random, Ronan, Logan, Justin, Patrick and April were able to share the Middle Ages with a group of enthusiastic elementary pupils and their teachers.
We held the demo outdoors, since the weather was sunny and warm. We discussed clothing and armor, then took questions from the kids. They made some interesting observations. One girl asked if armor was always noisy.
The fighting was greatly appreciated. We introduced the fighters beforehand, so the kids cheered their favorites by name. Chatelaine Briana, Logan and Justin demonstrated a medieval dance, with April doing her best to keep up.
As usual, the "free shots" were a hit with the kids (pun intended.) Huzzah to everyone who could make it! The teachers and kids both had a great time. Also, we appreciate everyone who wanted to make it but had things like jobs and classes during that time. Mundane life goes on, like it or not.
-April MacMorn
