  David and I will still be there Sunday, but we are doing the 'civvy' Patron thing.  No room in the car to pack garb!

  He wore it all day at the Games.  We won best Clan tent ^_^ and a bottle of 12 year old single malt.

 We were in jeans yesterday.  We didn't even make it to the gate before the first "Why aren't you in uniform?" was yelled.

 We attended the 'breeching' ceremony for a young Lord....I forgetz.  We had mead and cake, that I remember.

  If you need a witness to the kidnapping of the King-I can name names now that I'm not looking down the barrel of a flintlock.. Danged pirates.

  We had a good run this year!  Can't wait 'till 2013!

  I gather from the Book of Faces, that we had a vandal attack at the site last night. Sometimes the local performers wait till the following weekend after closing to clear out all their stuff, and some food vendors  and Children's area equipment was tore up, thrown around, and some items were stolen.
  Looked to be kids who wanted to destroy things. 
  Hopefully they left the fairy tree memorial alone this time. I didn't hear that they left grafitti.
  Sucks.

I just finished putting up all my Week 3 pictures from the Des Moines Renaissance Faire 9/15-16/2012. This was their final weekend for the season. Great weather and fantastic time and crowds. To see them just follow the link below, go to the bottom of Week 1 and click on the Week 3 button -

I'm experimenting with Mejuba, and uploaded a bunch of pictures there. Could someone tell me if this works for them?

That's awful. I don't get why anyone would want to destroy things like that.

Wonderful pictures! The pirates were 'walking the Plank' most of the day.   I suggested they bring baggies next time...there were wood chips everywhere.
  The Haggis Chips were interesting- Definitely an odd variation on BBQ..

Well I went out this afternoon just to check on things myself and to talk to someone who really knew what went on. Seems as though someone broke in to four of the food establishments and stole equipment out of them and left in the field in back.They think they have recovered most if not all of it. I guess it could have been worse.

  The Forking Queen had some if her things opened, and scattered and some of her smaller props are missing.  She only had a few items left to remove, and some of the food from the vendors was mixed in with her props.  She is local, so she wasn't in a hurry to finish packing up after faire, and the stuff she had left behind wasn't valuable or irreplaceable.  It's the first time this has happened to her in the entire time she has been with DMRF so she won't leave her stuff behind anymore.
  I'm glad to hear that the Fairy Tree was left alone. 
  Sleepy Hollow is very close to the Iowa Fairgrounds and within easy reach of some of the older neighborhoods.

Hey, look what I just found! Remember last year's final closing gate, which had not only a number of excellent musical acts but also the dramatic return of the pirated king? Video has been uploaded to Youtube! Lord Clisto, you better watch out. :P
