I disagree that people liked the site.  There were a lot more insects (bites
to go with them), the electricity problem, not enough toilets, ect.  I think
going back to the sweetwater site is a wonderful idea!!

You Excellency,

I'm afraid I will have to disagree with you on this. When Gothic floated I
remember some great turn outs. The best was the year that HL Katherine was
autocrate and it was held in Treloc. That was the year that it was the War
of the Roses. Great site there too.

See you soon,

Bjorn
