3. Elashava will include a request for comment on this item in the next Northwatch.

B. Court ofChivalry section

1. Tristan has been doing research on this topic. Courts of Chivalry have been very rare, and Corpora has some deliberate ambiguity in order to adjust to individual circumstances.

V. Shade Flys for Northshield Army

A. There is a need for larger shade structures on our battlefields, especially Pennsic, to accommodate the Northshield Army. This is also a negotiating position with several mercenary companies.

B. Option 1 –Rent a pavilion at Pennisc – apx $1000

C. Option 2 –Build shade flies.  Giovanna is preparing cost estimates – likely apx $800 for five structures.

2. Current estimates are for poly-cotton – what is the cost for canvas instead?

3. Logistics planning – where will these be stored, who will care for them, who will transport them?

4. Who will make them?

5. Possibility of asking for sponsorship from households, groups, etc tomake, store, transport, and setup individual shade flies at various events, grouped together to make a big shade fly.
