In addition to "checking" with TRM it must be well known by all participants 
that this is not an official SCA Knighting. If it is conceived by anybody as 
an official SCA Knighting it is establishing an extremely dangerous 
precedence as well as being against our rules. After all, no one in Darkwood 
or the entire SCA, other then the King, can create a Knight of the SCA.

What usually gets done for the Make-A-Wish kids?  There might be something
to be borrowed from that.

I also *highly* recommend checking with TRM if anything gets done
involving the word "knighting."  Depending on what's proposed, they
probably won't get their knickers in a knot about it - but it's good form
to run it by them in advance.  Besides, They may wish to tweak the idea,
or send a letter, or something.
