Current Mood: thankfulthankful
As I have always said, MY Barony is the BEST Barony in the Knowne Worlde!!!
Candlemas went off with flying colors, because WE are Amazing!

I apologize for taking so long with my thank you's, but I have written, and re-written this missive many times in hopes of getting it JUST right! I hope I haven't forgotten anything, or anyone.....

To start with, I want to thank the Barony, not just for all the work you did, making the event so wonderful, but for Believing in Catina, Faelan, and myself, and allowing us the opportunity to try...

A Big Thank you to Catina Cooper, for agreeing to Co-Autocrat with me, and doing such a wonderful job!
Apparently we made a wonderful team, as everyone I talked to enjoyed the day.

Thank you, Faelan Haraldsson, for trusting me enough to come to me with the idea for an event, and asking me to Autocrat it for you! After Beltaine, I was ready to take a break, but you kept me going... Thank you also for the amazing feast, that I didn't have to worry about, in the least little bit!

Lady Sarah Curnutt, thank you for agreeing to be our reservationist, an often thankless job...

Jeremy Payant, your assistance with transportation of baronial goods to and from the storage unit, as well as providing music for atmosphere, and EVERYTHING else you did on Saturday was priceless!
You truly are a gentleman, Lord Jerome!

Thank you, Mason Garner, for agreeing to be our Knight Marshall for our TOC Tournament, and also to John Fulton, and Kat Blalock for all of your assistance.

To Rendy Hunt, I say “Thank you, thank you very much!” for all of your hard work arranging A&S classes, teaching a fabulous, and incredibly involved class on Viking embroidery, and coordinating with the Laurels on our Regional A&S Competition. We couldn't have done it without you!

Jac Cordray and Alaine Alaine White Tyler, our other two A&S Class teachers, thank you for sharing your knowledge and time with everyone, also. The classes we offered may not have been many, but they were wonderfully taught!

A HUGE thank you to Marc McGee, Austin Frakes, Elvis Montego and Mark & Margaret Plunk, for all of the behind the scenes stuff you did, from getting ready for the event, to handling emergency situations during the event. I never had to worry about things like stopped up toilets, mopping up spills, vacuuming up the tracked in debris, etc. You guys all had some part in making sure the place was clean and neat, and impressing the Lady from the church.

When we checked in, as she was going over where things were, and what was expected of us, I made the comment that we like to leave the place cleaner than we found it. Her exact words were, “We'll see...” And she did NOT sound very convinced... Saturday night, when we checked out, we walked the entire space, and all she could say was. “Wow! You guys did a Really good job!”

Leonora Di Vitale, you did a great job as Royal Liason. The room looked really nice, and they had everything they needed, I do believe. * grin*

Elvis Montego, you know how much I appreciate everything you do for our children... Matthew had a blast, and slept really well, Saturday night. As always you are just Awesome!

Thank you, Sean-Patrick O'Donnell for your melodious voice, and your sense of humor... Your job as Herald is not an easy one. But you make it look like a breeze!

Cormac TheBald and Jac, you guys dedicated your time to the Troll table, and things moved along smoothly, thank you SO very much. (Oh and Jac? THANK YOU for the donuts!!!!!)

Thank you to Patrick Philpot, Rendy Hunt, Ray DuBose, Kendra DeVaughn, Jeremiah Mazurek, Linnet MacLeod, Lindsay Philpot, Kat Blalock, Devin, Will the Cook, Mazelle Attiya, Keri Neece, Kitsune Tamamiko, Pam Sokoll, Peggy Sokoll, Fleur Stewart and everyone else who helped, for all the assistance in Kitchen.

And to the children of the Barony, that helped at feast, Brighid Kaelyn Plunk, Rebecca Plunk, Isaac Plunk, Matthew Miller, Conner Easley, Faith Good, and the others that helped whose names I do not know...

Thank you to Caren 'Snyder' Walloch, Neale Carter, Mark Mark Lavette, William Rhodes, Dennis West, Christopher Biagi Sr. for all the assistance throughout the day where it was needed.
And especially to William Hopper for being my rock, and organizing the great Table/Chair hunt, and even going home to get more chairs so everyone had a place to sit, at feast!

A special thank you to Their Royal Highness Uther VonZiemer, and Brigit Olesdottir for their presence, and to her excellency Linnet MacLeod for her support.
