Re: 2012 Bylaws proposal draft 2

Per the Master /Mistress thing - why get rid of Lord/Lady? They are older in origin (12th century as opposed to 14th) and much more directly denote recognition of honor and social status. Plus there is really no negative connotation associated with either of these, whereas Master/Mistress not only i...

Important Message about Feast Directions

I noticed last night that on the Barn is a placard that says "911 Lynch". The address listed on the website of Ulmstead Estates for the Barn is 833 Lynch Drive, Arnold. Either way, your GPS will take you to the place ... but you may find yourself driving past it as you are taken to 833. Th...

Re: Reminder!

P.S. If you want me to send them to you, send me an email: kesrya at gmail dot com. This is my first weekend back in Maryland in a month, and I am swamped - won't be checking the Boards very often.

Re: Reminder!

Hey Cailen, I haven't been able to read all the forum comments due to my personal life situation. But I did just read the bylaws. They look great, but I had a few comments that I hope will be considered or possibly read at the meeting on Saturday. I emailed them to the president, magistrate and secr...

Re: Financial Troubles of Todays Yutes.

Caeldoarn hit the nail on the head for me. Can I afford this increase - sure. Is the value of what I get out of the game worth the increase for me - no. And that's not because I don't love Darkon. It's because I had a baby a little over a year ago and there have not actually fought on the field for ...

Re: Feast 2011 Budget vs. Actual with Explanations

Don't worry Cailen - I can't imagine the costs increasing that much. While we want to make feast more self-sufficient, we also want to improve the professional quality of entertainment and it is well understood that these two things probably would be in opposition to each other. I think if we can ha...

Re: Look at Me! I'm a Survey - Fill Me Out!

P.S. Please take the time to fully fill out this survey. If you want the price of tickets to be super low, then please let me know what current offerings you'd be willing to give up to make that happen. Money doesn't go on trees, and I'm not psychic - I need to know what is not so important to you.

so what,its a little rain,that didn't stop us last time we were there. The last time you were there was a campout, which is typically just Darkon players. Noble tourneys bring out family and non-Darkon playing friends (not to mention the vendors' gear could get damaged). Sir Gwydion's one year old ...

And I just want to clarify, in case it's not apparent - that I certainly will fight, and have enjoyed doing so. My shining moment a few years ago was when I swung a great sword at Croaker in a day-battle and he said "good leg" and it was the final blow that actually killed him. Woot! I'm s...

However, this particular campout was discussed on Elidor's private message board (as all campouts are - since those who attend like to update those who didn't on what happened and what the result it), and there wa...
