KCRF has a strict No Weapons policy.

They have a new Beer and Bacon pub this year, for those looking for a genuine WTF moment...

Being that my persona us a thief I don't need a weapon but one should be able to carry a peace tied dagger....you peace tie your flute 0.0... I could always replace my dagger with a pickpocket set

No weapons in Canterbury!  They will check at the gates.  Just leave the blade at home.  My son had a pair of scissors once in a belt pouch (persona of a cordwainer/shoemaker) and was refused entry-and he had been on cast the year before as that very person.  Pickpocket set?  How very interesting!

As far as pubs, there are a few neat ones around:  Pirates Pub by the ship, and Codsweld Commons (I think?) near the center of Canterbury (it's a double decker!).  Most of the others are walk ups.  The Pig and Whistle has just a few stools, and the Drunken Starfish (by the mudshow) just doesn't feel period at all to me.

Post when you're coming, and we'll try to make you feel welcome!

I'm dying for some mead  :) I'm sure it will exceed my expectations .. And no worries I drink responsible for being 21 so  drunk at the fair is not to be expected from me!

We'll be having a pre-cannon tailgate tomorrow (Saturday, 19 Sep 2015) in my "carriage", a silver Mazda 6 (it has a bulldog USMC sticker in the lower left rear window, and a Langer's Ball sticker in the upper right rear window).  We should be there around 0900.  I imagine we'll be very near the VIP parking; I hope to park on the treeline on the other side of VIP.  If not there, across the (gravel) road from VIP.  We should have mimosas, mead, and doughnuts.  If you wanna come, feel free!  You can bring stuff to the party if you like, but don't feel obligated!

Please come, if nothing more than to say hello!

We had the pre-cannon, with mimosas and Krispy Kreme "Talk Like a Pirate Day" free doughnuts!  Shared with passers-by, and had a great day in the lanes!  Perfect Faire weather!

OF COURSE!!  So to all who shall read this:  GREETINGS!  Please plan to arrive in the carriage lot before cannon, and share in the festivities to celebrate Lord Gauwyn's visit to our humble shire of Canterbury!  Please mark your calendars for Saturday, 17 Oct as the main event (with a possible repeat performance the next day)!  We shall have adult beverages and light hors d'oeuvres; but please plan to stop by and introduce yourself even if you do not plan to imbibe!

More on the location later, but mark your calendar now!

PRE-CANNON TAILGATE REMINDER:  A week from this Saturday (NOT the 10th, but on the 17th) we shall have a gathering in the carriage lot with adult beverages and light hors d'oeuvres.  I cannot be sure where we will be, as they keep changing the way they fill the lot almost every faire day!  Your best bet is to private message me this week (through the forum here) and ask me for my cel phone number if you think there's a possibility you'll be there!  Then that morning (17 Oct) you can call and I'll tell you where we are!

Please come and meet some of your fellow R/F-ers!  You are certainly welcome to bring some refreshment to share (food, soft drink, hard drink) but that is not at all expected!  Just your smiling faces will be enough!

Come, join us as we close down this season of the Kansas City Renaissance Festival to a close!  We'll try to have fun without you, but it will be so much better WITH you!

It will be chilly this Saturday!  Mid 40s overnight (Friday into Saturday) with a high in the lower 60s on Saturday.  Break out the cold weather gear; and be sure to stop by the pre-cannon tailgate for your "mead jacket"!

I hope to see everyone this weekend!

Tomorrow is the big day!  Probably plan on being there at 0845!  I am ready with light hors d'oeuvres, GRAND Mimosas, and a few other surprises!

If I haven't given you my number yet, and you want to have some pre-cannon fellowship with your fellow RF.com brethren, please PM me very soon (today!) and I will give you my cel number.  Then you can call me tomorrow morning to find us!

I hope to see everyone there!

We had a great time too!  The different beverages were wonderful, as were the "healthy" cookies.  And I am so happy for the wonderful goodie bag Lady Adelae provided; I smell apple pie all the time now!  As always, it's truly a pleasure to spend time with you and yours!

Oh!  And thank you, Tamtaro, for bringing your small (but cheery) group to help us kick the day off right!

Some people have been shocked before that I got in the gate with points on my arrows.  Next time I go, I'll take some arrows with no points on them.  (They never come out of my quiver anyway.)
