Lairde Hamish has also invited the M’Cracks to stay onsite at the campground.  So for any of you who wish to camp there will be space available.   It is primitive camping only however there will be a couple of port-o-pots for us and the showers will be available.   ALL PEOPLE WISHING TO CAMP MUST BE REGISTERED PRIOR TO THAT WEEKEND!  So please let me know if you would like to and I will make sure you get the proper form to fill out.  (This campground is only used by cast, vendors and staff of the faire so he will need to be able to let security know who will be coming and going)


FAIRE INFO
Web site:  http://www.kyrenfaire.com

Hours are: 10am – 7pm
Located @ 955 Elm St. Eminence KY, 40019

Driving Directions to KYHRF:
From Lexington or Louisville: I-64 to Exit 35 (Shelbyville Exit). Turn north towards Shelbyville. (You'll pass a Cracker Barrel on the right) Travel north on Hwy 55 for 12 miles or so when you will reach Eminence. In Eminence turn right onto HWY 22 (Look for the Dairy Queen and turn Right onto 22). Drive half a mile. Venue is on the right across from Southern States. The drive for the venue is gravel and surrounded by fence.

From North: Take I-71S to Hwy 421E (Exit 34) to Hwy 55S through New Castle then Left onto Hwy 22 in Eminence.

I also would like to remind everyone coming that cash is not accepted by the food/drink vendors.  You MUST buy "coins of the realm" in order to purchase food and drink.  I would suggest getting them BEFORE you go in for the simple fact that if you don't, you will have to stand in a line of other M'Cracks to get them THEN get your Guinness  ;)

"There will be an area for M'Crack camping only. It will all be primitive, there aren't any types of hookups in that area, but we will have a couple of porta potties there, and it is close enough to the shower house for everyone to be able to shower and use the facility, there is even washers and dryers. The dinner and gathering that Saturday evening will actually be right next door to the site at Scriber Station, they have built a private banquet room, with a private bar, and we have reserved it for that night. It is walking distance from the faire site. They will cater the dinner, and there will be a cash bar."

I'll add this to the above info later...  kind of running around a bit with family today.

Alas, due to our restaurant, we can't be there, but here's a funny story from the TN Renaissance Festival, where we were this weekend.

Steve had to use the privvies, and on the way there, it started to rain really hard.  So he continued on, and I ducked into a shop.  He eventually came back, and we - and a group of people - ended up staying in the shop for about 20 minutes until the rain let up.

The shop proprietor saw my RF pin and said, "Oh, you are part of the group that's here this weekend."  I said yes I was, then she said, "And there's another group here, I forget their name."  I said, "The M'Cracks, and we also belong to them."

At which point she shook her head and said, "I have a shop at the Kentucky Renaissance Faire, and there was a group of them there last year.  I've never seen anything like them before and what went on at that faire."

And of course I said, "Wait till this year, July 4th weekend for the National Gathering.  There'll be even MORE of them there this year."

And while she was shaking her head and saying "Oh, no, not again, not more," we were laughing and saying goodbye!   ;D

If all goes well, my boyo (the tallest leapus) Rook'n and I will be in Kentucky for at least Saturday. Unfortunately, Heal'n will be tending to her patients in Carolina that weekend.

Due to an unexpected financial cost (clothes dryer taking a crap) we will not be able to afford the trip to Kentucky (sigh) but we do hope to recoup our losses and make it to GLMF for the next Gathering.
