So You Want To Be A Castleteer?: or A Guide For Newbies
« on: September 17, 2009, 08:21:57 AM »
The Castleteers have evolved to the point that (unfortunately) i feel rules are necessary. so here they are.

1. The Castleteer Gatherings are Adult Events. Not so much because we only do adult things and youngsters wouldn't fit in. It is because we are a large group, spread out over the interior and grounds of the Castle. It is impractical, if not impossible, to monitor everything and still be able to enjoy the festivities.

2. The Castleteer Gatherings are Garbed Events. This one is easy, it is because I say so.  :) The KOGT knows they have to be dressed to attend, so it is only fair everyone else is dressed too. lol (this rule is very connected to rule 3)

3. Only Those Who RSVP May Attend. The crowd control rule. You need to RSVP on one of the forums in order to be on the guest list. People come to visit the Castle 24/7, whether we are open or not, they will still come. That means strangers will often appear and simply invite themselves to the party. It happens all the time at the Castle. Feel free to take a bit of ownership and upon seeing someone that doesn't belong explain that the Castle is closed and currently being rented by a private party. If you are not comfortable doing this then simply find me....I love doing it. I am very polite, but forceful and have never had to raise my voice or cause a scene. Not once in 20 years. (well maybe once or twice, but you won't find the bodies)

4. These Are Potluck Dinners. Bring something. It shows participation and intent. You do not have to eat, I rarely do. But remember, it is the thought that counts.

5. BYOB. Self Explanatory. But please be responsible for your own gear. Also, refer to rules 2 and 3.

6. Have Fun, Make New Friends, Laugh A Little. You are missing the point if you don't follow this rule. :)

There is a Motion on the Floor, do I have a "Second"?

No, no, I'll second that Motion, and call for a Vote!

All those in Favor state "Aye!"

I do not want to assume, since we all know where that leads.....but I do not know where Loveland Castle is and can not seem to find an address listed anywhere on these threads about the place.   I believe that someone told me it was in Ohio, and since I am getting ready to make a run up to GLMF, I was wondering if it would be on my way (or a short side trip) so that Julia and I may stop by and see this place for ourselfs.

So if someone could help me out as to a location........

Thanks

It is just north of Cincinnati, one exit south of Kings Island.  It would be a close side trip when you visit ORF in Sept.

Hello I am Brian Taylor,
We recently went to the Loveland Castle and mentioned our website http://alwaysintao.com
The invite to the party was definitely appreciated and we look forward to attending
feel free to create a group on my site for the Castleteers if you'd like.
Also be sure to visit the blog I added about Loveland Castle and tell me what you think.

There's a post called "Castleteers 19 Alive and Kicking" you can post there how many are in your party and what you plan to bring for the potluck. :) glad to see you there!
