Hogle Zoo has invited the Barony of Loch Salann to participate in their yearly promo called “ZooLights” It is an opportunity to help promote the zoo and give back to the community as well as promote the SCA.
The Zoo is providing us with 20 x 30 heated pavilion and an extra room for storage. They are going to advertise our group on their website, radio ads and any other advertising they do. The pavilion is for our guilds to hold demos. For example, heraldry, pewter casting, calligraphy, and any others that would like to do a demo. They have even given us permission to have a forge (yeah Heinrich) on the property.
I would like to extend this invitation to the musicians guild as well. I would love to set the correct ambiance for our guests.
Heavy and rapier fighters are allowed on the zoo grounds as well. They are also trying to round up fencing for an aeric or two for us and anything else we may need, if they can.
We can hand out our flyers but are not allowed sell anything. We have permission to have food in the pavilion but need to clean up after ourselves.
It is on December 6th. It starts at 5:30 and ends at 9:00, but we do not have to stay the whole time. I have arranged for us to be on site at 1:00 to set up and get ready for the people.
In other words they are willing to give us 110% to promote the SCA, just for one night of our time. We pretty much have cart blanch for this demo as long as it does no harm or hurt the animals.
Please consider joining us at the zoo.
In Service to the Dream,
Baroness Sheelaegh — Seneschal of Loch Salann
