If you’re good with a hammer, saw, measuring tape and simple outdoor work we could use your help setting up indoor spaces, signs, games, etc., starting a day or so before the Market opens on Saturday, August 6th.
*This may require some heavy lifting.
Minions are responsible for helping and/or running the activities areas. These include a Maypole-style dance, “Fight the Knight” pit, archery station and tournaments, a Hobby Horse joust, a boffer Capture the Flag game, Storytelling, a dungeon crawl, and possibly other areas as well. A costume is required for these positions. The Fight the Knight pit also requires experience with safe combat and or archery practices.
Members of the Scavenger’s Court wander the site throughout the day keeping the grounds tidy and free of trash. The King of the Scavenger’s Court also takes care of the Lost and Found. This position may require emptying trash barrels from time to time. We would prefer a peasant-style costume, but it is not necessary.
