Can you expound on that, or are the censors wandering about?

As unpleasant as this summer has been so far, I've had plenty of it, and would more than welcome a nice cool Autumn.

We will be welcoming the R/F family with open arms but keeping a watchful eye on our tankards. 

I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible.

Don't drink all of the Guinness before RenDezvous, or you are going to have one angry wizard to contend with...

Will it never be time! Season passes and parking pass have been ordered.
Title: Re: CRF Opening Cannon Countdown!!!
Post by: hitchhiker90 on September 07, 2012, 01:13:58 PM
Just bought my season pass and parking too.  I will be seeing you guys every weekend.
Title: Re: CRF Opening Cannon Countdown!!!
Post by: Merlin the Elder on September 07, 2012, 02:33:57 PM
Pay parking??
Title: Re: CRF Opening Cannon Countdown!!!
Post by: Hibernian on September 08, 2012, 12:31:14 AM
Pay parking??
Regular parking is free. Season Pass holders may pay extra for a VIP Parking Permit which is closer to the gate. The tailgate for this year's R/F Rendevous will be held in the VIP lot.

Post by: Merlin the Elder on September 08, 2012, 02:47:47 PM
That sounds reasonable, Hibernian. Will we be allowed to pay and park in the VIP area?

Sorry, the VIP lot is usually reserved for the season ticket holders with passes. The parking passes are sold with the season pass and cover the entire season. So they are unavailable on a daily or weekend basis.

The VIP parking is also free if you have a handicap placard or registration.
Title: Re: CRF Opening Cannon Countdown!!!
Post by: Merlin the Elder on September 09, 2012, 08:36:58 AM
Thanks, Pharmar. We do qualify for that.

Any restrictions for tailgate? Some do not allow alcohol consumption.

Officially, while tailgating is fine and we do plan to do so Saturday morning, complete with a good country ham. Per North Carolina ABC (Alcohol Beverage Control) and CRF rules no alcohol shall be consume in the parking lot. Nor shall any outside alcohol come in the faire nor shall any faire alcohol leave through the gates. So officially, you should not be drinking in the parking lot as if you are caught the faire could lose its ABC license.

Now I am not going to say that it doesn't happen, but if it were me, I would pour certain things into my personal mug while out of sight.

Post by: Merlin the Elder on September 10, 2012, 05:53:53 AM
I think the restrictions on entering and leaving the faire proper are pretty universal.  I try to be discrete when pouring....

Post by: Alysea on September 17, 2012, 08:38:51 AM
Tick tock!!  Tick tock!!  Goes the Renfaire Clock!

         19 Days or 456 hours!!

Looking toward the end of a long wait!!!

Post by: midnightferret on September 30, 2012, 11:35:20 AM
Are non-VIP pass holders allowed to walk into the VIP lot for the tailgate? Just curious. Wouldn't want to be caught breaking the rules!
Title: Re: CRF Opening Cannon Countdown!!!
Post by: Molden on September 30, 2012, 07:59:30 PM
Absolutely! You'll walk right past it just before you get to the gates, just meander on by.

Well most of us would blend into the others in VIP parking.  LOL  You have to watch out for those "people" who are dressed weirdly.  LOL


   Clock it down to 5 DAYS!  Now it will seem like it is slowing to a crawl.
