Looks like it will be just me (aka Wheatie) and the missus (now Lady Joyce).  My son (aka "the fool") and his wife (aka "the lady in white") can't get time off.  Or, more correctly, he managed to get one day off but he's going to use it to work the lanes at Santa Fe.

Huzzah, Brother!  The Duchess and I look forward to seeing you both there.

Regardless, it will be good to see you and the Lady Joyce once again! ...and SPLEEN! Norfolk, we didn't get a chance to get to know you as well. We'll make up for that this trip.

Wow!  Our numbers are really rising!  We're over 60 now; I was expecting around 75, and we're almost there!

Who is Roger?  We are staying at that hotel, but booked outside of the call-in, since AARP was a little cheaper... That may bite me on the arse on the tickets, but plan to attend all 3 days...
Roger is the Roger Clements, KCRF Sales Director.  He's the one who is working with us to coordinate the deals for our RenDezVous!

3.  What is the weather supposed to be like?  How hot is "hot"?


I just looked up the averages on the weather channel.  Avg high is 70, avg low is 50.  Records are about 15 above and below that.  As I recall last year was still warm, like mid 70s.

Was that Columbus Day weekend?  It WAS chilly that day!  I remember loaning the heavy wool cloaks to the Young Bracknellites, who decided that Cartoon Network was calling their name!  That was a good day though; spending it with you and the missus!

Last year during Columbus Weekend, the Duchess and I were in KC as guest cast.  WE FROZE OUR BUNS!!  However, as a fetching lass at Scarby once informed me, there is no such thing as bad festival weather; merely inappropriate clothing.

WeatherUnderground.com, my favorite weather source, provides the following data for the period 11-15 Oct for Bonner Springs:
Avg High: 67
Avg Low 47
Chance of precip:  36%

PERFECT for noble garb!!

I don't mind the cold at all, and in fact, welcome it.  Two years ago at opening weekend of Sherwood Forest, we got a touch of sleet. The same weekend the year prior, it was in mid-80s.

I will take cold any day over nearly 100 degrees with nearly 100 percent humidity. And that temperature range does sound ideal for noble garb.
