Renn Faire... again!?!?!?!: Jousting Edition

http://www.rennfest.com/

This is the Jousting Edition of the Faire so Jousting is the main attraction. You don't have to watch the competition but it's pretty cool (I hope). If you don't want to watch jousting you are silly :P

If you don't want to watch you can make yourself useful by recruiting.

Same rules apply as the first Faire.

And it's okay to be late. We can take a picture at the end of the day too and don't worry about finding us; we will probably bump into each other.

---------------------------------------------------------

Stuff to think about.

1.  No weapons. they are not allowed so don't bring any

2. There are spirits. If you can't handle your liquor, don't drink. Or bring a nanny.  That is allowed. And make sure you have a safe person to ride home with (ie someone who drives a car and has not been drinking). Vomiting in people's cars is not encouraged.

2.5 Darkpony, if you are going bring your leash and don't climb rock walls drunk.

3. Yes you can cosplay. It needn't be pony themed.

4. Cash is king. If you want to buy stuff bring cash. If you want food, bring cash.

5. If you ride with someone pay the driver for gas. Cash is best. See the handy dandy spreadsheet if you need a ride :) it will be here soon.

6. If we can, we might be able to buy all of our tickets beforehandif one of our inside friends can get us a discount :D if not we will buy them all together. And if we do the latter all of you had better bring cash and please everyone do not bring $20s. Please bring $1s or $5s if you can please. It was annoying last year with all of the 20s.

7. We will meet outside of the ticket booth between 11 and 11:30 to buy tickets. If you are already in the Faire by them, great. If not get there with cash on time so we can all buy tickets together. Between 11:30 and 12 we will take a group picture, and then head in by noon.

--------------------------------------------------

We will probably split up to walk around during the Faire like last time but we can meet up afterwards and decide what to do about snacks and dinner. We might not all fit in the same restaurant but I think that we should meet up towards the end (TBA) and socialize and say bye.

 

 

 

-----------------

This is the Ride Sheet. If someone is giving you a ride please plan to arrive on time or early. If you are riding with someone exchange numbers.

    Renn Faire was fun, but it was hit or miss if I saw anyone from the Meetup there. Too few folks showed up and over too scattered of a schedule.

    Unfortunately traffic had us held back until 11:30, but I met up with Steampunk Pinkie Pie, a nice couple (the woman had on white furry animated ears), and a little group at the main gate. I'm terrible with names, but I remember Ori Whitedeer and a Nichole (Nicole?). There was also the photograph guy with the hat (this is what I call him, as I am a noob in the group), a really new guy, a guy with a jester's hat, and a couple more. If anyone remembers me I was Princess Luna and I'd love to friend you on Facebook. I had a great time hanging out, taking pictures and doing that interview!

    I got lost for about three and a half hours and wandered around, but eventually ran into Engie and drunk Dark Pony so it was all worth it.

    Unfortunately, as the rain began to fall, I went to wait by the exit for a bit, to see if anyone who showed up would be there. I wanted to say good bye to the others, but I soon decided to come back to the car. It was a great event, and I will gladly do it again! I'll be seeing you guys soon!

    Stupid traffic line forced us to turn around and now the stupid meetup site won't let me change my RSVP so now I have an unwanted no-show on my permanent record :'-(

    Update: my brother wanted to go to the Faire this year so I told him he can come with us. He's not a pony fan and will not be joining the meetup but he desperately wants to go and would be unable to go otherwise. We will now need two seats in the carpool that takes us, thanks!

      Ron - see the description. We're meeting outside the gates between 11 and 11:30. Most folks will be attending the Tournament/Joust - beyond that we'll pretty much be doing our own thing once there.

    This is for jousting. If not enough people show interest, I will just cancel bc it would be a waste of time.
