As always, volunteers are needed. War should be fun for everyone, but when
only a few people are doing all the work, it is not fun for them. If everyone
who goes to to the war volunteers for only one 2-hour shift, there will be
more volunteers than the staff will know what to do with! (But we’re sure
we’ll find something…) Volunteers are needed for: Warranted marshal (all
combat forms), warranted Lists officers, Chirurgeons, Constables (lots of
these, especially at night!), Waterbearers, Gate, Headquarters, daily privy
re-stocking (everyone will love you), hay bale moving, daily trash
collection, final site cleanup and More! There’s plenty to do for everyone
and anyone! Contact the Volunteer Autocrats: Lord Taliesin De Morlet and
Douceline de la Hay (Patrick and Brenda Martinez) email
or or (909) 487-8778 between
6:00 and 9:00 PM.
