We'll have our RF pins as well....especially since we (or should I say I...my good lady hasn't created an avatar for the boards) won't look much like our pictures.  Lookin' forward to hearing, and meeting, you!

AH yes! Spring with a May Day celebration should perk up my spirits!  Columbus has wonderful shopping and mundane entertainment, so why not make the excursion and look around while you're there?  I am hopeful to journey out...would be grand to see so many of you at U-Ren!  and seeing that I haven't seen Ambios and Maude since I left the circuit to be with my fairytale love, which is even longer than I haven't seen most of you... I am thinking we need a tailgate gathering!  As long as my health cooperates... I hope to see you there!

Well, friends, it looks like there won't be an opportunity to tailgate at U-Ren.  Columbus has a no open container law and the only parking facilities are on the street or a large indoor parking garage which is right next to the site.

We will have to be content to do our drinking after the faire.  I'm told by Ambios that there are some good pubs in the area where rennies are welcome so we'll coordinate plans when we get there.

I thought I had best let you all know now before you get there and are disappointed but I hope everyone still wants to go.

Heya!
The groups idea to stay at Ravenwood castle is a great idea. Me ,Shannon and Heather (Hooka) had been going there for years for their Medieval Festival to vend.Alas they had to stop the medieval festival because the owner was terminally and the Queen (his wife) who is an absolute doll couldn't handle taking care of him and doing the fair at the same time. We planned to camp almost every time but A room would open up and we would all stay in one room. If you stay in the gypsy wagons beware that the showers do NOT have a toilet in them .there are port a privys instead.There are quite a few BIG rooms where one can put up an air bed so you can stuff more people in them.the one room has a bed which can sleep 4 comfortably no kidding. The staff is absolutely FANTASTIC there and never minded when we did that.The chef is world class (at least the 5 years we went) They have a dinner where one is welcome to put on your finest garb and attend a feast in their Hall for an additional $25 a person. If you can stay DO IT! There are no phone outlets or wireless for electronics and only one phone in the great hall. Cell phone reception is horrendous but is a beautiful  place to relax and really immerse yourself  in the era. Shannon and I will try to attend but we just vended at the Viking fest this past weekend and are going to support and play at the charity to save the Santa Maria  (pirate) ship that is moored in Columbus the following weekend.( the ship lost her funding and we are trying to save her). I will expand on THAT in another topic thread!

'Tis a quandry, dear Lady.  My pick would be Byrnes Pub, http://www.byrnespub.com/   One of the performers from the faire is playing the evening there and it looks like a great place.  Byrnes Pub is a couple of miles away but we will be in need of a good meal, not to mention a terrible thurst.  There are directions on the web site and a link to Mapquest so you can see how far it is.

Nothing is within walking distance unless you are Steven Write who said, "Everywhere is within walking distance if you have the time".

It has been recommended by several people now as being rennie friendly.  When we all get together and coordinate with the regulars from that area, we can definately plan on where to go.

If I know this group, there will be a party somewhere.  Just the logistics of getting everyone to the same place.

Was great getting a chance to meet you, Terry, and Queen Maggie.  Glad you got home safe...did you and the rest of the PRF group find Byrnes without too much trouble?  Hope you enjoyed!

At the very least, wound up having perfect weather for you!

Well met....and hope to see you again some day.  BTW, we'll pass your info along to Queen Katherine and hope we get a chance to see you at BARF next spring!

Best regards, and...

Slainte!
