Announcements

Gentle Clannsfolk:

Under Heidi Vair's supervision, the Clann sutlery has really begun to amount to something. As one might expect, certain growing pains have been a part of this, and we have some new rules to implement:

1) All items for sale will have a tag with seller, item, and price. This tag will be kept by the sutler and used for payouts. If tags are not attached by the seller they will be attached at check-in.

2) All items not owned by Clann will be transported to and from events by owners or their deputies. The sutler can no longer carry around all these goods.

3) All items left with the sutler will be checked in and checked out so that we can be more definite about our inventory.

Finally, Lisa Gillstrom's son Hunter will be apprenticing to Heidi in the sutlery. Please give him the same courtesy and cooperation you would give Heidi.

Thank you for your patience as we develop this part of Clann's corporate life.

Mia McDavid
Chief of Staff

Siege of Woodville

Clann Tartan will again be presenting to the 8th Grade World History classes at Viking Middle School in Woodville WI. This event will be as follows:

Set up: Thursday, May 1 (meet at the school at 5:00) as many as we can get so we have as little as possible to set up in the morning! If you attend set up, Lisa and Sean will be providing dinner....

School Days: Friday, May 2 (8:00 to 3:00)
the format for this will be similar to last year, where the kids will be divided into groups and go through the camp to each demonstration station with their worksheets. They will begin at the outdoor classroom and move through after an intro to what we are and what we do and what it meant historically.

Public Day: Saturday, May 3 (8:00 to 12:00)
This will be open to the public. There may be a local hockey or other association with a brat stand (public draw and all that).

Tear Down: Saturday, May 3 (12:00 to ????)

INFO: At this event we WILL have access to hot and cold running water. We will have access to showers after 6:00 am until 6:30-7:00 am. We need to be out of the lockerrooms BEFORE school starts. We will have access to flushing toilets both days and until 11:00 pm at night.

If you have not yet RSVP'd to the HCF for this event, please do so ASAP: anstice_demalkuth@yahoo.com or 612-986-8511.
Please include the following information: tent status, demonstration and three worksheet questions, allergies, days attending.

Dun Gowan Immersion Weekend!

Coming up on May 10/11th is the chance we've all been waiting for! It's a Dun Gowan Immersion Weekend. Those who are able to attend will experience & participate in life as was done hundreds of years ago for nofee!Providing for housing needs was, and still is, a major part of life, after all.

On the schedule are various activities. You may choose to learn the use of various period tools in the pursuit of constructing a 17th century cottage with an added sleeping loft. Additional pursuits may include hawk throwing, music (modern and 17th century) by the campfire, and general fun. If you need to muster in cooking a meal, these will be prepared and served by volunteer staff who would most always be grateful for assistance.

Come, learn all you can, and take advantage of the privilege Clann Tartan so generously offers us! Really, how many people are afforded the opportunity to experience as unique anadventure? We'll actuallybe building a structure that our-17th century-selves would have maybe lived in. Don't forget, too, that Clann's Tactical weekend is coming up. Everything we add to the landscape on our permanent historic site enhances our scenarios. All this is offered for no more than thecostof transportation and food! Others have paid hundreds of dollars for such an opportunity. Plus, we have each other, and we'll enjoy the plentiful aspects of, "many hands making light work," and even fun!

Location: 5261 Fish Lake Rd Duluth, MN
Dates: This year's Dun Gowan Weekends currently include May 9, 10, 11 & June 27, 28, & 29, July 11, 12, & 13 with Tactical starting on the morning of July 18 and going through the 20th.

MINNESOTA SCOTTISH FAIR

MN Scottish Fair and Highland Games
The MN Scottish Fair and Highland Games will be May 17, 2008. They will be at the Dakota County Fair Grounds near Farmington. Clann Tartan will be participating again this year. Setup will be on the afternoon/evening of May 16; the trailer will come down on the 16th. Immediately after setup we will adjourn to Rosemont for Night at the Pub!

For those who are day-tripping, the gates will open for participants at 6:30. PLEASE BE IN CAMP FOR CAST CALL AT 8:30: we open at 9:00. Teardown will be at 5:30 when we close. As usual, please inform HCF Lisa (anstice_demalkuth@yahoo.com) if you are coming and if you need tent space. Please let her know 10 days before the event so she has time to plan and cook; May is *very* busy and we need all your help!

If you have any questions please ask your Staff. Thank you.

**********************************************

John O'Duggan & your own Clann Tartan Staff invite you to Johndezvous!

Have you ever been at an event and wished you had something to sit on? How about a proper bellows, table of your own, or a candle safe so those wouldn't get broken? Want to learn a little blacksmithing, or maybe you're tired of using the same old camp gear that doesn't really work for the period of time Clann represents? Put together your 17th century wish list, and come on down! This is all about helping our group, and being as appropriate as possible is a commendable goal. John will be holding a workshop on Memorial Day weekend to help us all set aside a time & place to address our lists. That's May 24, 25, 26 at the O'Duggan Farm in Lewiston, MN. He offers the use of his workshop with its complement of tools (table-saw, band-saw, lathe, drill-press, sander, hand-tools, etc) along with expert assistance, if needed. Some scrap lumber will be available for small projects. Have something larger in mind? Just bring your plans and lumber along when you come. Two forges will be prepared for anyone interested in trying their hand at it although John advises simple projects, unless an individual already has some skill. Extremely labor intensive items should not be planned.

Some other possibilities include:

And, if you have any other kind of project as well sewing, leather work, knitting, please bring it along! If you have something that you just can't figure out, or that's broken, or need help with, bring that, too. The weekend won't be too structured or planned. It's your needs as a re-enactor that are paramount here, and we can all help each other. It's all good.

This is an official, Clann sponsored event. That means meals will be provided in the same manner as at paid events. Clann will be bringing all of the regular paraphernalia including tents to Johndezvous, as well. Please RSVP as soon as you are able to reserve your tent space. (All of the usual rules apply to this, too.) There will be plenty of space for camping and outdoor workspace. John will be providing fire-wood, and, depending upon the number of people who decide to attend, privies may be provided, also. (The O'Duggan farm-house only has one small bathroom.).

A 'hawk block and archery target will liven up the gathering. A safe spot for some muzzleloader shooting might be found, as well. People are welcome to stay the entire Memorial Day weekend, if they wish, with arrival beginning as early as Friday.

Particular thanks go out to John and the O'Duggan family for offering our members this opportunity. Some of us have the resources to make the things we need. Others normally are not able due to lack of skill, opportunity and/or equipment. If you are one of those with skill, or equipment, please consider coming out in support of the rest of us. The base of knowledge in Clann is enormous. We influence each other, and the help we each offer can be inspiring!

Please include your project ideas with your RSVP to Laura Swenson at 715-684-4221 or email her at mommyco@baldwin-telecom.net The RSVP is crucial to planning, so be sure to let her know as soon as you can.

Directions to the O'Duggan Farm at:
20628 Whistle Pass Drive Lewiston MN 55952
Their home phone # is 507-523-3233

Directions from the Cities: Take US 52 to Rochester. Head EAST on US 14. At Lewiston, turn left (north) on CR 25 (Quik Trip is at this intersection) Go approx 1 & 1/2 miles, and turn LEFT on Whistle Pass Drive. The first house on the right is Duin O'Duggan. They live some 20 minutes west of Winona or 40 minutes east of Rochester, MN.

**********************************************

MUSTER

Muster will be the last weekend in May (May 30, 31 and June 1) in Mankato at Jack McGowan's place.. We need people to teach for Muster, so please let one of the Sr. Staff or Muster Crew know if you are willing and able. Please RSVP to the HCF (Lisa Gillstrom at anstice_demalkuth@yahoo.com) and let her know if you are coming and also if you need tentage! She needs this information 10 days before the event so she can plan and shop; May is *very* busy this year and we really need your help!

Modern clothes and modern tents are acceptable.

Setup will be the Friday; if weather conditions make that look uninviting, please watch your mail for updates.

For this occasion, we are also hosting Mairi's Girl Scout Troop; they want to Learn to Do Things. Please come down and help make them welcome! As usual, if you have any questions, please ask your Staff. Thank you.

**********************************************

FOR SALE

Janome Embroidery Machine and Janome Sewing Machine for sale. The Embroidery Machine is 2 years old and has about 20 hours on it (I paid $1100 new). The Sewing Machine is about 6 years old and has about 200 hours on it. Both are clean and run perfectly. I've had the sewing machine serviced every couple years whether it was used or not. I'm asking $600 or best offer for both together (I'll throw in a sewing cart as well). Contact name and number is Robin Mavis, 763-647-4839 or 763-786-5026.

**********************************************

Camp Drill Schedule

GAFFNEY'S SUTLER SEEKS WARES

Our sutler, Heidi Viar, is looking for items made by members to sell at her table. We hope that, by offering a variety of interesting wares, we can encourage the public to stop, peruse, and purchase. If you are interesting in selling your spinning, knit caps or stockings, beadwork, bonework, woodwork, we will display them, watch them, accept money for them, and accept a 10% cut for Clann.

You can either bring your goods to Heidi at events, or entrust them to her beforehand. We ask that items be small and not terribly fragile if Heidi is to transport them.

Thank you for your support of Clann Tartan.

**********************************************

Board Minutes

Clann Tartan Board Meeting, March 18, 2008

Present: Julie Yoder, Bruce Yoder, Cate Hesser, Betsy Bolton, Glenn McDavid, Marty Byers, Sean McCanna


Minutes of the February Meeting were accepted as presented.
REPORTS

VP: Will print more flyers. Will leave room for acknowledgement of sponsorship. 
This will mean a special printing for each show, but that can be done. 
Marty will produce an electronic copy of the basic flyer, to which show-specific verbiage 
about sponsorship can be added as needed.

TREASURER: Asked our agent about possible changes to our insurance policy (See minutes from previous meetings). 
No reply so far. Also contacted another agency, but again no word back. Nobody is really interested 
in such a small policy amount--too much work for not enough money.

Not much financial activity in February. As for March, we already have the check from Moorhead.

We are currently running a budget surplus.

SECRETARY/CAMP REP/COMPANY REP: No report.

QUARTERMASTER: The trailer inspection has not been scheduled yet. The new priming flask is done. 
We have a possible source for good, cheap pike heads--just need to make sure they are what we expect. 
Herb is working on the broken scouring stick [Update--this is done] and trailer repairs.

Marty said we could use another 20 tent stakes, because of the well-documented property of 
iron and steel to evaporate when so used. No argument, and duly noted by the Quartermaster.

MUSIC GUILD: Big turnout in February: 12 members. Thinking about a 2nd monthly meeting. 
This would be on another day of the week and at another location.

DANCE GUILD: Going well.

FIBER GUILD: No report.

SWORD GUILD: Asked Powderhorn Park about meeting space. No response yet. We will be doing something 
at events on Saturdays. When warmer weather comes we will move outside. Looking for wooden practice swords.

GARDENING GUILD: No report. Mary has some sorrel which would be nice for our meals.

HISTORIC SITE: No report. Work weekends have been scheduled.

EVENTS

Julie liked Lisa's post-Moorhead write-up. We need to write more such reports. At Moorhead we had 
six people 10-4 on Saturday. They were busy all day long. It was a good event.

4/6. Tartan Day. Need a newsletter write-up.

4/25-26. Charles City. Cate offered the use of her truck if we need it for transportation. Gratefully accepted.

5/2-3 Woodville. Possibility of a sponsor (See above).

5/17. Minnesota Scottish Fair and Highland Games. Mary passed along the message that no 
alcohol is permitted except in the beer tent. There is an officially sanctioned monopoly.

5/30-6/1. Muster at McGowan's in Mankato. Jack was very good about changing the date once, 
but Mia is not going to ask him up again. Don't even think about requesting another change.

6/14-15. Twig. We have sent them a contract. Nothing back yet.

7/18-20. Dun Gowan Tactical. We will be paying a flat fee of $50 for everyone who attends. 
$70 if you count Don's membership. This is just fine.

8/1-3. Deer River. Pending. Similar to last year.

8/??. Perham. We have sent them a contract

10/2-5 Big Island. Same contract as last year. We will provide 9 stations for school days. 
We will need to have people for all these stations, but if necessary we can combine them.

10/9-11 Mankato History Fest. Sent the contract out. No response yet.

10/14-19 Big Muddy (Winona). Luke is asking that we present him with a firm offer, rather than 
haggle over the price. After some discussion of the relevant game theory and our needs and 
resources the Board came up a negotiating position and directed Lisa (our Contracts rep) to proceed 
with it in her discussions with Luke.

11/?? St. Andrew's in Fargo. In contact.

Other events are being looked at.
OLD BUSINESS

Julie will check with John Debnam about calendar reminders in the new web site.

Maeve asked if she could assign some of her many paid-up membership years to other members. 
No problem. Moved/Seconded/Passed.

We received an anonymous donation (cash in an untraceable envelope) to cover two other memberships. 
However, one of the families designated has declined the offer. We should refund the money to the donor, 
but we have no idea who that might be. Bruce will send out an announcement about this, and hopefully the donor 
will contact him for the refund.

We will need to clean up the mailing list soon, removing non-members.

Julie suggested that from now on new members not be offered the option of a hard copy newsletter. 
This would not affect current recipients of hard copies. This was tabled.

Event Schedule for the 2008 Season:

Hello all,

The following is a list of the dates of the events that are currently on the schedule for this year. The staff has met and decided to keep this running list of events in the newsletter to give you a chance to get an idea of what is going on this season as well as keep you updated to changes in the schedule.

The column titled status will include the following information.

Tentative- this means that an event organizer or Clann has expressed a strong enough interest in doing this event that it warrants reserving space on the calendar for the event.

Pending- this is the next stage of an event. This means that the Contracts Administrator has entered serious discussion about Clann doing an event but we are still not committed to the event. You should however if possible think about whether or not you may be able to attend this event.

Scheduled- this level means that the board and staff have approve the event and we are committed to providing manpower to making the event happen. When an event is assigned this level please let Julie know as soon as possible if you can or can not attend this event.

Canceled- This means that for various reasons an scheduled event has been removed from the current season. We will try and give as much notice as we can prior to canceling an event.

If you have any questions about this, please feel free to contact me regarding this matter

Thanks,
Lisa Gillstrom McCanna

Minnesota Scottish Fair and Highland Games - Dakota County fairgrounds, Farmington, MN, May 17, 2008

Mark your calendars! Saturday, May 17, Clann will be participating in the Minnesota Scottish Fair and Highland Games. Here's the website: http://www.mnscottishfair.org/.
We can camp Friday and Saturday nights, although the fair is at the Dakota County fairgrounds in Farmington, only about a half-hour drive from the center of the cities, so it's also very easy to day-trip. There are flush toilets and showers on the grounds and lots of free parking. This was a really great event last year, and this year promises to be even better!
