Grenemere has ACCEPTED the opportunity to show off the SCA at the upcoming Mercer County Ohio Fair. The Mercer County Ohio Fair will be holding an evening of jousting by the Knights of Valor on Sunday August 11th at approximately 8 p.m.
We will take advantage of this unique event by setting up a day booth to offer conversation, fliers, and an assortment of display items for visitors to see and ask about. At this time we have been assigned booth space #76, we are located near Frisk Fries, the Camel rides and Ponies.
We are looking for folks who would be willing to show up anytime after 1 p.m. and help “set the mood” by walking the fair in their attire. They have a radio station coming in to do a “Live Remote” from the Beer Garden from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. While we are not officially part of this, we encourage folks to wander over and make a good showing.
Please note, at this event/demo we are not permitted to showcase fighting.
As you plan your summer, please keep this event in mind. Our hope/plan is to encourage interest in the SCA, Middle Kingdom and ANY local group. In addition, we hope to boost attendance at our demo the following week.
