Ft. Concho’s National Cavalry Competition event -- help needed

The Frontier Women’s Living History Assn. will be helping at Ft. Concho’s National Cavalry Competition event, Sept. 30 - Oct. 3, 2010 with activities for women and civilians who accompany the competitors and perhaps the public. We need ideas and volunteers. Please send me any ideas you might have and let me know if you will be at Ft. Concho for the event. It sounds like there will be about 50 people who might be interested in our activities. Below I have listed some ideas that have already been suggested as a jumping off place for your great additions. Your help is greatly appreciated. Check the blog for updates
