YMCA SCA Demo – 18 July 2017

Carol Edwards Center
17401 133rd Ave NE, Woodinville, Washington 98072
Jul 18 at 10 AM to 3 PM

We will start out with the whole group together in the gym for the fighting demo. We need at least 3 rapier or cut and thrust fighters, and 3 heavy fighters. It would be great if fighters could stay and help out in the small groups after the fighting. Fighter can arrive between 10 am and 10:30 as long as they can be in their armour and ready to fight by 10:45 am. The fighting demo portion will last about 30 minutes.

After the fighting demo and while the kids are eating lunch we will do an intro about our clothing and what our life would be life in medieval times until 11:30 am.

Small group classes will run 30 minutes with the 1st round of classes starting at 11:45 am. There will be 4 rounds of classes with the last class ending at 2:15 pm.
We are looking at teaching a class dance in the gym, a painting or sewing class in the classroom, a chivalry class and games.

We will have 90 kids ranging from 1st to 6th grade. We will be dividing them into 4 groups of about 20 to 25 kids in each group.

Please let me know if you can volunteer and what you would like to demonstrate.
