Title: Renstock Redux
Post by: SirBlackFox on November 13, 2010, 02:15:21 PM
Since the first Renstock wasn't a big, big hit. . .(it was kinda' hot in July), we're redux'ing it!

Sponsored by FriendsofMDRF.org and Faire Magazine, this will be an exciting weekend to camp out with fellow renfolk and have a blast in the forest.  As one of the initial "villagers" of this new realm, you'll be in on how a festival is put together from the bare bones up AND your voice will be heard from the get-go!

Are you a budding performer or need to test new entertainment material on a small crowd?  Here's your chance!   The chance to be involved is by invitation only, so please let me know if you're definitely interested.  There's still room for tent camping and RVs, but we need to know up front what you plan to bring.

See you on Friday!

This was hella-fun!

We'll have info on RENSTOCK II: THE WRATH OF MIKE at our new site:  www.renstock.com

We've also opened a Bulletin Board just for our lil' faire:  http://renstock.proboards.com

Maybe we'll get our own Faire Listing in the NorthEast Section of this site! woohoo

Actually the first Renstock was an enormous hit!  It was held in Western Pennsylvania in 2006 and has been held, in one form or another, every year since.  It was a great compliment that someone else picked up the idea and held an "Eastern Shore Renstock."  But the 6th annual Renstock will be held in March of 2011.  I do hope Faire Magazine credits it properly.

Not to nitpick, but the idea and name of "RenStock" has been around for decades.  I've chatted with Rennies who've been hooking up for various "RenStocks" all over the country. . . hell, we had one for Friends of MDRF . org back in 2004 and it was just a bunch of us rennies going to dinner then hanging out in someone's basement!

The name isn't half as important as what it stands for . . . a FREE faire where folks can get together of the same Rennie spirit and have fun.  "RenStock" was no one's idea "FIRST" . .  it was everyone's idea at different times throughout Ren Faire history.  We can all share in such a spirit under the same name m'thinks . . .sharing is what we do.

We plan to continue our RenStock Faire every year with a clever movie-type tie-in of a name that may or may not have anything to do with the actual faire. . .but it sure will be fun!

Huzzzzzah!
