Historical Groups Recreate The Life Style Of The Middle Ages - Continued from the Front - longbow and crossbow, fencing, heavy weapons, and equestrian events. Members also participate in learning the arts and sciences of time, Herb growing, wine & ale making, calligraphy, spinning, weaving, needlework, food preser- vation and different techniques that we can adopt for use today. Be- cause the SCA is family orientated, children activities are also in- cluded, such as story-telling, pup- pet shows, nature walks and draw- rag. g The highlight of most events is the feast. Members enjoy several different courses of historically pre- pared food while roaming min- strels, storytellers and other enter- tainers delight the guests. Events can range from small local groups getting together, like this last week- end, to large regional and national events. Events give members an opportunity to spend time in their historical garb (clothing), compet- ing in feats of prowess, playing me- dieval games, competing with oth- ers in the different art & science categories and socializing with new or old friends. The SDSU Medieval Society for Creative Anachronism is open to any SDSU student regardless of major, and the Brookings Area Society for Creative Anachronism is open to anyone wishing to learn more about life in the Middle Ages and have hands on experience try- !ng everything from armored fight- mg to feasting like royalty.

Lack Of Rain Starting To Be Felt In The Area - Continued from the Front - August 20 - .25 August 25 - .01 That August 19th date is when some people (around and in Tyler) reported an inch, some as low as a tenth," Petersen said. "But offi- cially we had just over a half inch." Davis says that the weather and lack of rain has had an impact on the crops, and could continue to do so without some significant rain. "In a nutshell, from the corn perspective we are doing pretty good and could have a fairly de- cent crop," Davis said. "We should have slightly above average harvest. We got fair moisture and above average temperatures when we needed it - producers tell me the ears are pretty well filled out."
