(My apologies, I got on my computer and found this still on the screen and not been sent from last week...)
We are so proud of our Barony and the awesomeness that was Wiesenfeuer Baronial this last weekend. We had so many positive comments from so many visitors to our lands: the mass amount of fighting, the quick list mistresses, the archery targets, the festival finger food instead of feast (by Tigernach), the tavern (held by House Wolfstar), the nighttime festivities, the layout of the competitions…everything was complimented on at least once!
People typically get nervous and reserved when picking out directed thank you’s, but we feel that there were so many people that generously gave their time and energy, that those people must be acknowledged. We apologize if anyone was missed on this list, as you can see, it takes a lot of people. If you saw someone going out of their way to make the event what it was (for one person or for everyone), please post their actions.
If you ever think that there isn’t anything that you can help with, check out this list! Surely there is something on here that you could help with in the future. Without our volunteers, our society would not survive!
**Valia of the Mists and (Dee) Deirdre ni’Raighailligh, our Ladies in Waiting. A special thank you from our hearts for keeping us, at least a little bit, sane and in line for the whole event
**Many thanks to the Alphas and members of House Wolfstar for allowing up the use of the site reservation that weekend to hold our rescheduled event that was delayed due to storms…otherwise it would’ve been in July or January

**‘Southern Roland ‘ Rathbourne for helping us setup on Friday and going and grabbing more to come help when he realized just how much more we had to do

We are sure in all of this, someone has probably been unintentionally left off. If that is you, then our deepest apologies and sincerest thanks for your help at our event. We hope to see you at many more events!
