Montaigne du Roi is doing a demo at the Monterey Scottish Games & Celtic Festival, Aug. 5 & 6,
2006. The Games & demo will be at Toro County Park, on Hwy 68 just west of Salinas.  This is a
nice grassy park, with many large oak trees.  The Scottish Society of the Monterey Peninsula has
given us 12 participant tickets & 5 parking passes, good for both days.  Most of our fighters are
having life that weekend, so we especially need fighters (heavy & rapier) and a marshal or two.

What we have done in the past is coordinate our demo with the black powder & Gatling gun group who
we are set up near.  They start shooting & making a lot of noise that attracts a crowd.  When
thery're done, we start fighting & making noise, and the crowd comes over to check us out.  We'd
also like to find someone who can lead some dancing, and weather/fire danger permitting, we're
hoping to do a cooking demo.  We  also will have an opportunity to visit the rest of the event.

To request a ticket & arrange for carpools, please contact Baroness Liesl Helmschmiedin at
