Estrella War XXIV (Feb 12-18,2008): Marshals and Waterbearers Needed Tue Dec 25, 2007 8:31 am (PST) The Marshal-in-Charge for Estrella War XXIV and the Atenveldt Kingdom Waterbearer are asking for volunteers to help on the fighting fields during three days of combat scheduled at Estrella War XXIV (www.estrellawar. org). They are asking specifically for volunteers who can serve as authorized heavy combat or rapier marshals, those who can serve as waterbearers on the combat fields, and those who can assist at four waterbearing stations providing support for the heavy combat and rapier fields.

WATERBEARERS SIGN UP:
The Principal Kingdoms at Estrella War XXIV will jointly operate four waterbearing stations on the heavy combat and rapier fields, and ask that all volunteers coordinate waterbearing support through those four stations. If at all possible, waterbearers are asked to sign up before the event so waterbearing can be scheduled to properly support all fields during the entire course of combat.

To volunteer as a waterbearer before the event, you can contact the ATENVELDT KINGDOM WATERBEARER (THL Aurelia Chrysanthina Dalassene at 602-692-5970 or ldyaurelia@ yahoo.com [OMIT SPACES]) or one of the Principal Kingdom Waterbearers, or you can signup by emailing the VOLUNTEER COORDINATOR (THL Eden Blacksmith at volunteer08@ estrellawar. org [OMIT SPACES]).

Once at the event, you can volunteer to waterbear at Volunteer Point, or at the Main Waterbearing Station at the time you wish to volunteer.

ADDITIONAL WATERBEARER INFORMATION:
A Waterbearing 101 Class is scheduled as part of the COLLEGIUM schedule at the Estrella War XXIV. If you have never volunteered as a waterbearer, or wish a refresher course on the fun you can have supporting fighters on the field, please check the class schedule in the gatebook or on the website, and attend this class!

The four Water Bearing Stations are also in need of 2 liter plastic bottles! Please save them and contact the ATENVELDT KINGDOM WATERBEARER to arrange for pick up/delivery before the event, or bring them to the Main Waterbearing Station. Donations of other supplies (pickles, oranges, Gatorade, etc.) are also welcome, with pick up/delivery coordinated through the ATENVELDT KINGDOM WATERBEARER.

The Estrella War website (www.estrellawar. org) has a wealth of information about the Estrella War XXIV to be held Feb 12-18, 2008 at Canyon Moon Ranch in Florence, AZ. If you're considering scheduling a winter vacation to attend the event next year, your planning should start with looking at the Estrella War website!
