Greetings to one and all,
This was my first Gothic War and my first time being Waterbearer in Charge.
I learned a lot and had a good time too. I have a long list of people to
thank. We had 16 adults who signed in to waterbear over the two days. There
were 19, yes, I said 19 youths signed in over the course of the event to
In random order(and as they themselves signed in), these are the people who
helped out and volunteered for waterbearing at Gothic Wars 14:

These young Ansteorrans did a fantastic job! To the parents of these
children, please pass my repeated thanks on to your children once again.

Thank you one and all for volunteering. We had "floating fighters" on
Saturday because of you.
I also want to say thank you to Lady Caley, Lady Ethne, Lord Gavin and Lord
Stephen Blackthorne for all the encouragement you offered.
Caley, Ethne, Safiye, Chiara and Nicolet, thank you for jumping right in and
getting things set up in quick (and experienced) fashion.
Dracot and Ro, I don't know how many times you ran back and forth between
water points and the spigots for us, but thank you for each trip.
Roach, you've got some great ideas and your help in the kitchen was
The Western Region has many things to be proud of, one more to add to that
list is those who volunteer to waterbear.
I also have to give word fame to my dear husband who helped recruit
waterbearers at every turn and made sure that Rowan and I had lunch.
Lastly, I have to give word fame to my co-WBiC: Lady RowanMazey MacBranian
mag Labruin. This Lady worked so hard to help my plans run smoothly. Without
her help, things would not have been near what they were. Thank you, Rowan.
One last piece of info then I'm really done. We had planned to have largesse
for all the waterbearers. There were 24 necklaces. When I tallied the
numbers of adults and children, I realized I didn't have enough to give
everyone a necklace. It was decided to give them to the children because
children need something tangible more than adults do. Not all the children
who helped came to see me after court. If you have a child listed above who
said "Mom/Dad, I didn't get my necklace", email me off list and we'll work
out a way to get it to them.
I hope I've listed everyone who helped. If I've left someone out, please
forgive me and know that while you may not be listed here, your help was
appreciated at Gothic.
Thank you all for an incredible time,
Bridget the Stargazer
