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.

come to dislike the SCA "jingle bunnies". They're so, ungraceful, or

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.
