Wet is not always necessary, but it can be fun.....of course, it can be 
dangerous too......like last Pennsic when I almost tumbled into Vlad's 
fire pit.....oops....almost let that one slip out. :)

Feasts are a good thing!

Yes, something for everyone.  Also, different levels of competition.  It 
seems unfair to have Laurels and students clumped into the same competition.

VIVAT! to that.  My Lady performs true middle eastern dancing, and I've 
come to dislike the SCA "jingle bunnies". They're so, ungraceful, or

So that we may squander our hard earned money! :)

Yes, around a campfire.

Nor bagpipes before 8 AM. :)

Yeah.....do we ever have events like that in Atlantia? ;)  I've been to 
one in Meridies, and I've been to Pennsic, but I can't say I ever 
remember a good camping event in Atlantia.  Perhaps Emerald Joust, but I 
wasn't able to stay for the festivities afterward.  Anyway, you 
definately know what is involved in a good SCA event.
