Cheers to all of you who worked to bring this Tavern event to life. The tavern was so much fun because of these people:
ZIANNA BEGUY URDINA DE ZABALETA who trolled everyone in with help from Cassandra Matis, Nichola Beese, Joe Feil, Chrissy Feil, and Casey Redmane;
BARON BRANDUBH Ó DONNGHAILE whose presence was much appreciated and his herald, KIERAN MACRAE, who kazoo-ed open the court; BARONESS HILDERUN HUGELMANN, we missed you!
ELSBETH ANNE ROTH who staffed a busy heraldic consult table;
AIBELL INGEN CHERNACHAIN who provided amusement with family activities;
BUGGA BILIBIT who led a Pilgrimage singing practice and GWENDOLYN THE GRACEFUL who knows and sings all the songs at the Bardic Circle (even the one about the Haggis!);
An extra Vivant for these first-time event staffers:
ELSA TALIARD my co-autocrat, who backed me up and also made sure the lodge was clean at the end of the day with help from Raven Whitehart, Eilionora inghean an Bhairdis, Ihala Auvinen, Ceindrech verch Elidir, Amanda Bowen, and Gwendolyn the Graceful;
EILIONORA INGHEAN AN BHAIRD developed challenging A&S competitions and offered display spaces for our arists;
IHALA AUVINEN who created a hearth-side bardic semi-circle and arranged for singers to lead us in our favorite songs;
RONAN O’CONALL organized the adult beverages so many of us enjoyed – mmmmm, mead;
EMILY FORNEY who brought in two merchants of wonderful goods, and who not only has never helped at an event before, but also has never attended an event before – really?
KATTERA DOPLERIN while not new to cooking, was head cook for the first time, and made terrific food that deftly avoided everyone’s food issues.
To all of you, I say again, many, many thanks!
If I did not list someone by name or deed, please know that the fault is mine, but that everyone’s assistance is most gratefully appreciated. Please let me know who has been omitted so that I may render thanks where it is due.
Yours in Service to the Barony,
Elss of Augsburg
