Chivalry Weekend sounds a lot like the Romance Weekend of years gone by.  Any plans for the old activities, like the wearing of numbers, etc, or is to too early to tell?

What you describe seems to me to be singles day within romance weekend. I don't know that it will be back although I don't believe it to be likely since it has not been announced. Note that this is my personal impression.

My luck, I send the kids off to Grandma's on the kid's free weekend :)

Sunday might be a good day to come out and play sans kids.

There are a couple of weekends without themes... is this an oversight, or just no themes to add?

(one of the weekends is when I'll be a guest vendor... So I am curious!!)

For the last couple of seasons, not all weekends have had a "theme" to them.
