That might be fun. I would need to come back Saturday night, as I teach all day on Sundays. I also don't have any Crusader era garb... only 14th century and later.

Sounds pretty cool. If we aimed for a Friday-Saturday sort of thing, I could probably take a day off from work (I'm usually looking for ways to burn off some leave at that time of year anyway so that I don't lose any).

Of course, we could always push the period a little later too if the Crusades is too early for everyone. Sort of a 14th Century "round table" or something. I'm pretty flexible.

You could always go for the late 14th century transitional harness for a pauper knight.  ;)

Sort of like a knight getting back on his financial feet after losing one too many tournaments. ;D

You could always just say you fell asleep outside of Acre for a really long time and you just woke up and haven't had time to become trendy...
