Also this year's selection for RenDevous '08 over Memorial Day Weekend, May 24, 25 and 26...The third thus far and coinciding with both Menage Ette Trois (the 3rd annual Ette Invasion of Tennessee) and a momentous second year in a row for a meeting of members of Clan M'Crack.  AKA "Triple ThrETTE."  See the RenDevous '08 thread for more.

It was cold and windy today. It was in the 50's all day. That's cold for this time of year.

We had the same weather! It's a good reason to wear a cloak, or at least an excuse to add more to your garb closet.  :)

Im new to this group and im glad i found it. I just went to the Renaissance festival in Tn and it was my first time ever. This thing was so awesome. I had so much fun and the people playing the parts were so friendly. I wish this festival was here year round. Does anyone know if this is held anywhere else in Tn or close by. Im going again this next coming up weekend and again the last weekend of May.

Welcome Jeff! Glad to hear your first faire experience was a great one!

The festival is held every weekend in May, but there are other smaller faires in the state. I know several others here who are better at naming those than myself.  :D

I hope to see you this weekend. Love meeting new people! I'm not sure which day I'm going (depends on my bro's work schedule) but I wouldn't miss pirate weekend for anything. I'll also be there Memorial Day weekend for the big RENdezvous gathering.

Several members have an RF pins. It's shield with R/F on it. some are painted. Introduce your self and and we'll introduce you to the rest.

If you come early Memorial day weekend look for an R/F flag outside the gates. we'll be gathering before the faire.

see the rendevous threads.
