So you are thinking about planning and hosting an aisling run fair? The information in this manual will help you along the way to hold a successful and enjoyable fair that is fun for all.
Planning and hosting a fair is a large responsibility. It is a lot of hard work and one should not take on this task if their heart is not dedicated to the tasks at hand. The coordinator of the fair will spend all of their time dealing with planning the fair, scheduling events, testing features, organizing officials, writing announcements and posting them, and answering questions of event hosts, committee members, officials, and citizens. Complete dedication and nothing less than 100% of what you have to give is required for the task at hand.
The Mileth fair was founded by Dartanian, Burgess of Mileth. Dartanian chose a group of volunteers to help him construct the fairgrounds and lay out the foundation for the first Mileth Fair. Mileth Fair 1 was held in Deoch 9.
Mileth Fair 2 was held in Deoch 11. The planning of Mileth Fair 2 was different than the planning of Mileth Fair 1. A group of volunteers joined together to plan the fair. They formed a committee and elected one committee member to be the chair person/spokes person. This worked well as it left the chairperson more time to take care of the structural and social aspects of the fair and make last minute emergency solutions to problems that can and will occur during the actual fair.
Either way of planing a fair works fine either one coordinator or a committee of coordinators. My personal opinion is that it is easier with a group of coordinators rather than one aisling being responsible for the entire fair. There should also only be one spokesperson that all members report to as to eliminate any confusion and prevent redundancy.
