What, do you have to notify JD that you are going to need some inventory?!?   :D

I had hoped to sew a new gown for this event but I don't think that is going to happen.  :-\

Yeah, me, too, MG. But I don't know how to sew.

It doesn't look bad as long as it's not a strapless....

Weather for RenDezvous Weekend in Bonner Springs:
Friday 63/46  - Clouds to sunny
Saturday 63/54 - Sunny
Sunday 71/56 - Increasing cloudiness
Monday 72/56 - Clouds to some sun

Looks pretty close to perfect to me!

I'm not sure what I should be counting down...opening cannon, or opening of the meet-and-greet on Friday. MnG is 10 days away. We're about to go single digits. I've arranged for our cat sitter, and Nimue says she has the garb box packed, so we're about ready.

Accuweather offers the following as of this morning: (hi/lo)
Friday - 64°/45° - Sunny
Saturday - 66°/46° - Sunny
Sunday - 66°/45° - Sunshine
Monday - 67°/46° - Partial sunshine

I think we shall be able to fight our way through this awful weather, eh?

Only PARTIAL sunshine on Monday? Horrors! Are you off your weather-spell-casting game, Merlin?
Title: Re: Countdown to RenDezvous!!
Post by: Merlin the Elder on October 01, 2013, 07:34:18 AM
Not at all! Photographers actually prefer an overcast day for best results. Being the last day of the faire, I thought I should offer them the opportunity. I am a very nice wizard!

Monday will be a short day at KCRF; the closing canon will go at 5:00, I'm told.

It is also "School Day", so the lanes will be filled with lots of school children (up through high school).  My experience has been pleasant on "School Day" in the past, most all of the children want to be there, and are genuinely interested in talking to the villagers and playtrons.

Don't forget your white elephant gifts for Friday night's meet and greet!

I'm not sure whether I'm getting nervous or excited. I love the way plans for Rendezvous itself are coming together, but I can't seem to nail down my trip up and back. I'm supposed to stop for a couple of business meetings along the way ... yuck ... and without those nailed down, I can't reserve hotel rooms for the night ...

Ah well, worst case scenario, I come straight on up.

Sounds like us, we 'plan' many ren faire visits based on my wife's meeting schedule :)

Garb bag packed?  Geez, you're good!  I usually don't finally decide what to wear until the night before we leave, and then am up at the crack of dawn packing it on the morning of!  Since wildthingjew and Miss Katie Scarlett will be staying at my house on Thursday night, I may have to alter my usual method, if I possibly can!

Well, I was going to bring one of these for the White Elephant gift exchange, but I couldn't find a used one:

So I found something better.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

I do hope if you DO find a used one, that you pay particular attention to the 3rd bullet point!

Cleaning and disinfecting it would take all the fun out of it. "What is this? Oh. EWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!"

Do you know how rare white elephants are?!? Is it okay if it's a little off-colour?

I've seen many a pink elephant in my days.

Pink. You had to bring up pink. I am trying to figure out right now why on earth I decided to make one more set of sleeves for my wife's gown. Starting today. In pink. What was I thinking?

 Well, the Weather Witch was liberally bribed with Kandy Korn, and has decreed that the weather will cooperate for the RenDezvous weekend at KCRF; especially for those worried about overheating in noble garb (though KC has plenty of shade).
   Pleasantly sunny Saturday and Sunday with highs in the mid 60's.  Columbus Day itself- Highs will remain in the 60's but with a 60% chance of T-storms.
   That should reduce the schoolkid presence for those of you planning on making a 3 day weekend of it. ;)
  Enjoy!
Title: Re: Countdown to RenDezvous!!
Post by: Butch on October 11, 2013, 08:17:55 AM
10 hours 45 minutes!

And the highs have been bumped up to 73 for Bonner Springs Sat and Sun, and 0% chance of rain; still 60% chance of rain for Mon.

In Rennie time, the count is ZERO!  We're here, Butch is here, Gauwyn and Adelay are here, Iain and Julie...more, I think, but I haven't seen them...

Less than 2 hours to PAR TAY.

  We will be there in spirit!  Make sure you check out Tig'r Toggs!

  I'm at work right now-then headed to Vala's Pumpkin Patch with the grandson, and a housewarming party later on...
  I was a far too short faire season for us this year.

I 'm sorry I didn't post before now that I would be unable to attend. Things have been so crazy. Unfortunately with vehicle repairs and medical bills, there went faire money this year. I hope you all are having a wonderful time!!!
