Event proposal

War in September Event proposal – Hanbal

As the event final approval was delayed till the council meeting tomorrow, I have revisited the financials and made some slight modifications, which are included in the attached updated Excel document – please use this for the meeting tomorrow.

Changes include:

– Increased the sundries expenses to $4 per person (from $3).

– Included Steward as fee free along with discounts for 4 cooks + bookings (5 in total) of $20 each.

The event still makes a profit at 60 people of approx. $200.

Current timetable plan is for some activities Friday night with soup kitchen that may affect war scenarios the next day.  War Saturday morning with lateish lunch – demonstration of equestrian following lunch (rest break period), followed by tournaments in all combat forms as well as target archery, followed by pick-ups.  Sunday morning more war / training sessions as interest dictates as well as archery golf.
