You can read about the M'Cracks here http://www.renaissancefestival.com/forums/index.php?topic=719.0 (http://www.renaissancefestival.com/forums/index.php?topic=719.0). Members of the Clan gather together several times a year at different faires. When we do it's called an invasion. There is currently no local chapter in Georgia but my guess is after the invasion there could be. The Clan is a great group of people. Look for us, say hi, share a drink.

My dear Sir... The opening weekend (18th and 19th of April) is indeed M'Crack invasion weekend.  I'm sure there will be MANY M'Cracks for you to meet!

Post by: Dallan on March 14, 2009, 11:37:03 AM
Agreed. My wife and I love meeting new friends so dear sir please look for me and say hello. On Saturday I’ll be in the guy in the pub with the green shirt and saffron kilt. Wait that only narrows it down to all the M’Crack men. I’ll be the one drinking beer. There that should help. Sorry, seriously  Sir Clisto please  introduce yourself. I’m not too hard to find as I travel with a beautiful blonde and two handsome blonde sons. It’s a wonder I even get noticed at all.

I'm sure... you'll be the ONLY one drinking beer.... Oh wait, they don't have Guinness do they, which means you could be the only one drinking beer, since most M'Cracks could have Guinness via I.V. line.   ;)    Mwahahaha....

It has been a full year Dallan....and YES I am looking forward to opening weekend!  ;D After all, it is Lady Dracolich's natal day weekend....who in their right mind would not travel for such an event?   :) :D   Saturday my husband and I will be there with our boys (look for 2 small crazy Celts in Black Watch tartan) and Sunday we'll be on our own while the in-laws have the boys. Look forward to seeing you and your family again....as well as Templars, M'Cracks and the Lords and Ladies of the forums!

An invasion....no, a significant representation of the Military might of the Holy See (thus keeping heretics and evil does at bay)....yes.
Although it's looking bleak at having other Brothers from this thread attend, I do plan on having 2-3 Confrere (associate) Brothers in attendance. I will be equipping them from the armory of my Preceptory. Lady Lefay will also have Ladies in waiting in her train., at least one that I'm aware of. ;D

Thank you all for responding, but I believe my memory decieved me. I am coming in for the May 2/3 weekend and was thinking of the Tennessee faire opening weekend which is the 2nd/3rd. My apoligies for the misunderstanding. I was going to go to the GA faire on either the Saturday or Sunday and the Tenn faire on the opposite day. I lumped them together. So, it will really be the 3rd weekend of GA and opening of Tenn. in the same weekend. So, now that I have my witts about me again, who will be there on the 2nd or 3rd of May at GA.

I am currently speaking to the entire Clan down here in Florida...
Clan O'Conchobhair...
and many of us, I believe, will be in attendance for this event.

I can speak for myself, Galsdig M'Crack and my son (O'Snap)
we are DEFINITES.

Now, Seamus (Ewe'n) has expressed an interest... I know Treeman (Sapp'n) is considering it...
I'll have more details soon.  I'd LOVE to get the entire Chapter to come but some folks do have scheduling conflicts...

You have just thrust upon me yet another changes of plans for opening weekend.  My local friends here who were going to come with us
have a church function that weekend that they cannot get out of.  So the wife and I were going to come and play a bit and leave early say about 3PM because we have a little furball that needs attention.  Now it looks like we will have to re-visit our former plan and come up in the motorhome so the dog will be with us and we can consider staying for pubsing.  Thanks alot my friend ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

So.. do we M'Cracks have a pub/ restaurant to meet at in the evening hours?  Are we wanting to meet up on Friday/Saturday nights?  Let me know, b/c I've found a few nice (and in one case, Irish) pubs that may be able to accommodate us.  I'd be happy to sort it out for us all.  Wooohoo!!  We're almost there!! :D
Title: Re: M'Crack Invasion of GARF 2009
Post by: Dallan on April 09, 2009, 12:48:21 PM
Since there is not a local Clan (at least not yet) I don't think anyone has set up a social gathering either night.
Title: Re: M'Crack Invasion of GARF 2009
Post by: Count Adolfo on April 10, 2009, 01:21:04 AM
I shall certainly not be able to make it for any Friday night Gathering...

if we are coming... and I say if because there are still some challenges to overcome...
we will be leaving after work Friday.  We'll arrive in the wee, wee hours Saturday... grab breakfast, dress in the lot and go to Faire.
After Faire, we'll be available for dinner, which I believe I have an arrangement made for...
then it will be off to bed to make it for Sunday.

Sunday we'd need to leave around 3 or 4pm to get back here to FL in time to get sleep and go to work on Monday.

Remaining hurdles?
1.  A vehicle to take to GA (yeah, this one's a doozie)
2.  Possible health issue
3.  Hotel for Sat Nite has not yet been booked.
4.  If no one else is going from down here, the drive is all me and the expenses aren't split...

Wish me luck

OK, I posted this elsewhere but I'll also put it here in case it's missed...
I bought a Durango but it cost me... so now I have a vehicle...
but I can't make it this coming weekend to GARF.  It was the truck or the trip...
I think I made the right decision.

I have to act all responsible-like...
I'm a single dad and all

see you all on Memorial Day Weekend

I was thinking the Irish Bred Pub.  It's about 10 miles from the GARF exit (exit 61 off I 85).  I've not been there before, but it sort of reminds me of the Hooker. Here's the link: http://www.irishbredpubptc.com/index.html

So, if we're all interested, I'll be happy to call ahead this evening and make arrangements for Friday eve.  Let me know!

Hail everyone,

  I have a slight correction to make about my trip to GA and Tenn over the May 2-3rd weekend. I will be attending the Tennessee faire on Saturday instead of Sunday and the GA faire on Sunday instead of Saturday. This is how my good friends I am staying with usually do it so I wanted to correct it on here for all attending so we can still meet up. So, Please let me know if this changes things for some of you in getting together. 16 days and counting... HUZZAH!!!
