Title: Almost Time
Post by: WindChime on April 30, 2012, 08:24:52 PM
It's almost time for the gates to open.
How many of you are as excited as me?
This will be my 5Th season as a vendor this year and have some things in the works.

I'm excited to see everyone but not so excited that it will be my LAST season and I'll be saying goodbye...  :-\

April and I are pretty excited, I just hope that the heat stays away, this year has been way warmer than normal, and although MOST people like searing heat for ren festivals, we don't really, but we're going to try and make it opening weekend and again when Dr Kaboom is scheduled.

Capt Lucy.. are you leaving all ren festivals or just the Kentucky one?... never had a chance to meet you, although if you were at the Tennessee festival the weekend after the flooding I might have seen you but with my eyes it might have been someone who looks like a blurry you. In either case, hate to see you go.

Oh just leaving Kentucky!  :)  I'll be going back to my old stomping ground at King Richard's Faire in MA! :D  I'll be in TN next weekend though!

Ahhh ok, good to hear. Doubt I'll make any long trips this year, had to help my daughter and son-in-law move to Minnesota, so that drained the ol' trip budget for this season, although I'll make the Ky Renfest and the Ohio Renfest this year as both are close. Going to make sure I visit the kids in Minnesota during the MN festival, so I can kill two birds with one stone. haha... they told me "we know WHY you're going to visit us in September, Dad, you're not fooling anybody"  ::)

I work at KY Faire :)  I'm one of the Knights of Cuchulain and we have a guild/building there :)  I'm sure if you ask anyone there where you can find Lucy, you will no doubt be pointed in the right direction ;)

Oh and FYI... I ALWAYS visited MA in Sept so I could go to King Richard's Faire...I have no shame ;)  My family knew what I was doing! lol.

I'm sad to say last season was my last one in Kentucky since the faire's opening. :( I've moved permanently to South Carolina and, while I do love KYHRF, I can't make it any more--it's already a stretch to make TNRF, but I've been going to that one for 9 years and just can't stop. Hope to see you guys around elsewhere!

If you're in SC I hope to see you in Fairhaven (CRF) this fall.

I'll be there, or at least plan to be! It's my first time there so it'll be good to have at least one familiar face. :)

My family will probably still be at KYHRF on Doktor Kaboom's weekend. Have fun, y'all!

Well It looks like some of the Old Timers are not gonna make it from Texas this year but I am coming and bringing a whole new batch. After just finishing up one of the warmest Scarborough Faire's that I can remember it will be nice to dress down and knock back many many beers in Hoodoo's Pub. I most certainly look forward to seeing the family (especially you Tinker my old friend). So I guess you could say YES I AM EXCITED!!!!!!!

Well it looked like we weren't going to make it to any festivals this year. My wife had a bunch of shots in her back to supposedly help with a disc problem and she was out for almost a month barely able to get out of bed. Luckily it snapped back this week and she still hurts but can at least move around. We'll probably wait a bit to make sure she can walk around all day before we go (most likely on Kaboom weekend).

Based on past history, this should insure that temperatures stay nice until the weekend of the 23rd and I know opening weekend looked like it was perfect. Course it'll be high 90's on the weekend of the 23rd and I do apologize for that ahead of time. haha.  ::)
