Thank you thank you thank you.

(This post is heavily SCA-based, and because Facebook won’t let me post it due to length, so apologies to those for whom this will be confusing).

I think it’s appropriate that Castle Wars comes before Thanksgiving, because I am full of thanks for all the people who came and had fun, and to the people who did so much work to make the event what it was. In particular:

Master Robin, our intrepid Event Steward;
Master Ximon, his deputy, and the most selfless, positive person on the planet (seriously);
Majda, for sharing her tent and almost six months of her time;
Lady Ayla, for sharing her time and her hookah;
Lady Siobhan, for being the person to keep track of the moneys and pay the site when we were all done;
Their Excellencies Hajji and Jadi, the Baronial motivators, the lovely face of our hospitality, and a damned fine Baron and Baroness;
Their Majesties Thomas and Elisenda, and His Highness Ulrich, for being our inspiration and for spending the weekend with us;
Maire, who did the jobs of six people and is a superwoman (hello, first time as reservationist? whoa!);
Lady Muriel, who made sure that our new people had garb and felt welcome, and that everyone had the land they needed when they needed it;
THL Serafina, who wrangled a bunch of crazy artisans and got us teaching awesome classes;
Lord Logan, who was, as always, meticulous and totally reliable with equestrian;
Lord Sebastianos, my favorite “fake” brother and the mastermind behind our shiny new castle and the great fighting scenarios;
Lord Jareth, who kept us in live weapons;
THL Peryn, the new King’s Lancer and a good half of the coursing;
Lady Jac, the other half of that pair;
Lady Lucia, who made sure we knew all the things we needed to know at the right times;
Mistress Adela, who coordinated the merchants;
and to the rest of you folks who carried things, set things up, schlepped, worked troll, and helped make this what it was. You’re all awesome.

(Apologies if I left anyone off this list; I have tired brain. You are appreciated, I promise!)

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.

    I was just the drum major up front waving the baton. It was everybody else who made it look easy!
