The first weekend
« on: August 11, 2008, 11:09:44 AM »
Has come and gone. Save for the 30 minutes of torrential downpour that ruined the chess match (but made for entertaining singing for under the tent next to the chess field) it was a glorious weekend. The storyline seems to be quite interesting (although, I only caught Queen's court and the chess match. I'll be seeing both joust shows later). It was definitely good to see familiar faces on the cast and get to play with them a bit, especially at the gambling table. And thankfully, Keel Rake is back again with its unscheduled show.

The season has begun!

Nothing like a near-evacuation to start the season off  ::)

Glad you had fun...I'll see everyone on the streets soon!

To add to the topic; some photos from this weekend! I ran into BeeBoy and saw some other R/F folks while getting drug about the shire by my family.



I'll add more later as I finish the Sunday photos.

We went on Saturday, which was beautiful.  I'm so glad that faire is finally here!

So Colleen did anything happen to be mentioned about a possible visit from the Marques of Winchester this year at PARF on opening weekend? ;)  ;D

The rain was on Sunday at right about 4:00. I know because we were just attempting to begin the chess mattch when Mother Nature said a resounding "NO!".

It was a great weekend!  I left during the downpour - and I was tired ...and very nervous about winning my newly earned money at the gambling table :)
