the various aspects of the Middle Ages and our members are expected to do
their best in attaining these goals individually. M.S.R. presents a variety
of events, both public and private, the success of which depends solely
upon the efforts of our volunteers. Each year we stage many complete medieval
fairs, supplying both the labor and the entertainment involved in such projects.
Our private events provide an ideal showcase for our individual talents
in costuming, performance skills, cooking, brewing, dancing, and tournament

awards for their efforts. As a new member, you will have the opportunity
to learn and develop new skills, and to experience a new way of life.
We encourage you to become involved and to participate in all aspects
of our organization. We hope that you will make full use of the resources
that we offer.
MSR's ultimate goals include the construction and operation of a historically
accurate castle and village.
