Meet The Cast Picnic
« on: August 02, 2009, 07:49:02 PM »
Today PARF had a Meet the Cast Picnic for season ticket holders. The weather forecast called for heavy thunderstorms, which indeed swept through the area. In fact, there were severe weather warnings in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and New Jersey with flash flood warnings thrown in as well! On my trip to the Faire I encountered very heavy rain and electrical storms when I got about 10 miles into Pennsylvania. I plowed through, sometimes at just 35 MPH. Eventually I came out of the weather front. When I got to the Shire patches of blue were starting to appear, although the parking lot sloshed as one drove through it. Unfortunately, many people stayed away or turned back, thereby missing a really nice event. Many cast members returned but in new persona. Quite a few new and eager faces. Of course I came in garb and brought the Renaissance Bubble Machine. Many newbies (cast and patrons) were delighted to discover it. I presented the Queen with a Royal Bubbler Pendent, a replica of one given to Queen Victoria by a Maharaja when she was named Empress of India. I made the Queen smile! In the end, it turned into a very nice but humid sunny day. Two lessons can be learned from this... one, even a rainy day at Faire is better than a sunny day at work; and two... you gotta believe!!!!! Huzzah............ can't wait for opening next week!!!!!  :D ;D :D ;D

Yes.  I had to figure a way to divert the water coming into the basement via chimney into the french drain before deciding I could attend.  'Twas an excellent afternoon, nonetheless.  I spent the evening oiling my armor for opening weekend!

I'm sorry I missed it - I had somewhere else to be that day. Can't wait to see you all again this season - should be a good one!

Awesome photos as usual, Michael!

Looks like a 4 man joust and that CRF will be missing Sir William this year!

Awwww!  Thank you Maria! 'Twas one of those events when armor just wouldn't seem to make much sense.  (Not with rain still a possibility anyhow.)

4 man joust? Psh. Try 6.  ;) ;D

And is that William Debracy that you are referring to? I'm sorry you lost him, but glad we got him, he's fantastic.

Agree with Colleen's sentiments with Sir William. He's one photogenic fellow...
