Subject to the approval of Her Most Royal and Magical Highness, Bonnie, I do sincerely tender this deliniation of her court as it stands today. Further, I humbly beseech all members of this fine forum to forgive anything I've overlooked, and to please list in this forum any necessary corrections, which I will then transfer to this record.

On the 6th of December, 2004, Bonnie reluctantly accepted, upon the nomination of this forum, the title and position of Queen of Everything. Her platform was simple - free ren faires for life for all, and plenty of single malt to go along with it. It was suggested that the oath written in support of the "Between Faire Time" subject matter of the thread be used as the court oath. That oath follows:

Everyday, I shall live in the spirit of ren.
Everyday, I shall take my job seriously, but not myself while I do it.
Everyday, I shall relax.
Everyday, I shall love those who love me.
Everyday, I shall find some pleasure in life.

The Royal Court now stands as follows (presented in the chronological order of the appointment):

June, 2008 - The Queen has established the Royal Order of Sandwenches, featuring the great trio of beachside wenching, Welsh Wench, Athena and Festmum.

Hail to the Court, and long live the Queen! Huzzah!!

As you can see, DB was able to save quite a bit...quite a few names are missing, or, out on Crusade, as I think of, as before, if you would like to become a member of the Court of Glenlivet, or, if you were a member and are not currently listed, please petition the Queen with your request, and we shall update the Court Lists asap...

Thank you for posting this, Amras.  I felt it only fitting that you should be the one to revive the Courtly Matters.

QB, may I suggest The Royal Order of Landsharks.  We're privateers who've looked at 40, are happiest at sea and dangerous on land, whose official music keeper is Jimmy of Buffett.  If agreed, I humbly suggest this messenger be appointed Landshark No. 1.  Have a great weekend - see your evil twin next Saturday?


Woohoo!!!!  The court made it onto the raft!!!
Got faerie dust?
