My Noble Friends of the Bow,

WoW is just days away, and I am still seeking target archery marshals or 
MITs to work the children's range on Friday and Saturday. Two good 
gentles have stepped forward to help, but more are needed.

Please let me know if you can take a two-hour shift during one of these 
days. There will be a sign-up board at the event, but it would help me 
greatly if I knew you were willing to help.

I especially would like hear in advance from any MITs who want to 
assist. This is a great opportunity for MITs to get some rare 
experience. I would consider a four-hour block, or two shorter blocks to 
be worth a signature. Otherwise, a two-hour block could probably be 
combined with time on the adult range for a signature.

I will be bringing eleven bows, a dozen sets of arrows, and a ton of 
arm-guards and gloves. You don't have to provide any gear. If you do 
wish to work, there will be a half-hour safety class for the youngsters 
and their parents at 9:30 on Friday morning. I suggest this would be 
worth attending, especially if you've never worked with children before. 
Come by at 9:00, and I can show you the gear.

Now my sermon. Working with children is one of the most rewarding things 
we can do in the SCA. Time spent serving as a mentor/role model gives 
the youngsters real life lessons like responsibility, confidence, and 
personal discipline. These are great gifts to give a child. Everything 
else we do in the SCA, no matter how much fun or rewarding, is just 
play, but what you do for children can have a life-long effect on them.

I still look forward to being swamped by volunteers.

Yours Aye,

Lord Mungo Napier, WoW Children's TA Range MIC
