We have been given the go ahead to expand Mounted Watch for Gulf Wars XIX! We can now go where ever the Watch needs us, (but as always, not into camps or down Merchant’s Row.)
Sir Stuart, the Watch Commander for Gulf Wars, has asked us for a lot of help. He needs two rider teams every night of the week, for 4 hour shifts. The night shift is 10 pm until 2 am and the morning shift is 2 am until 6 am. In addition, he needs help with traffic directing and control, and on-call riders to escort rigs to the barn. And, of course, he will need help patrolling the parking lots and roads.
He’s currently working on his schedule and would like a head count and an idea of how many equestrians are interested. He needs to ‘budget’ his riders. He has a place for everyone who wants to participate in Mounted Watch, and needs to know fairly quickly how to parcel those places out.
Horses will not need diapers; Sanitation is giving double points to pooper scoopers! As in years past, horses will need to pass a special authorization. This will consist of walking across a tarp, standing still when porta potty doors burst open, drunken crowds petting the pretty pony, banners flapping in their faces, a bag of cans rattled up their sides, radios and phones ringing and speaking over them, and balls being tossed near them.
I know this seems a long way out; we are just looking for an informal head count of who would be interested in participating in Mounted Watch. A show of hands would do nicely, LOL!
