Jonathan, he's talking about a renaissancefestival.com pin, not a cast pin.  ;)

I wonder if anyone has a pin(were they even made back then) from 1986.  I believe that was the innaugural year and the first year I attended.   If there are none to be had, I wonder how one could be made.

This does mark the 25th anniversary of the Georgia Renaissance Festival. Willynilly On The Wash is just a glimmer of a memory now.

I'd give yourself 30 mins. Last year there was a lot of construction and it took hours for some folks.

warrior monk is right if they are working on that exit(which it seems like they always are) it will take longer. but yeah it's really just a stone throw from the airport or so it seems to me

I'll very likely be there for opening day, unless the forecast calls for rain of course.

Though, as much as I like being there on opening day, last year was a nightmare. I tried to arrive by about 11:45-ish, but due to the insane craaawwlll of traffic that last mile or so in Fairburn, I didn't get in the gates til an hour later. Ugh.
Getting there any earlier means no sleep for me 't'all, since I work at night...

HUZZAH!!



but, crap... that means I don't have very long to get me a new bodice. @&#@!@#$#%.... I found a half bodice on ebay that I liked, but the lady hasn't gotten back to me about one in my size. :/

Have you tried taking a look at sellers on Etsy?

thanks for the lead. :) i've looked today, and unfortunately most of those are out of my price range; however, if i save up, i might be able to get one for next year (there are *several* that i really like).
i bid on a pretty nice 2 piece couture set that apparently doesn't have a reserve on ebay, so maybe i'll get it. i'm not sure how it'll fit it with my garb though... i may have to by a new chemise (luckily those aren't anywhere near as expensive as a bodice). we'll see how it goes.
