Since you ask for story's I will share one even more funny than Lord Sasha walking on the train of my dress. (which I know he is gonna really love you sharing with everyone LOL)
When I got the call saying that Sasha didn't wanna go by himself, I looked over at Sanishio and said do you wanna ride. With this stupid look on his face he declared that the pain he was in is to much to have to ride that far but for me to go and have fun. So I accepted to proposal to ride. NOT knowing there was stipulations till the night before it was time to leave!! The thing was that Lord Sashka would be here at 7:30 and if I was not ready to walk out the door I was being left and to go to the privy B4 we left because he was not stopping. I was not happy!!! Much to his and everyone else surprise I was ready and waiting!!!
We get to the site after a long hot ride and get things unpacked. As soon as I finish getting dressed I walked out of the tent and inform Sasha the reason i don't wear the dress I chose anymore is because people tend to trip on the train or are always standing on it! So your Excellency he had fair waring of the dangers of the dress!!! Once I inform him of this I run to find the captain and the other members of my crew. Glad, they were easily noticeable with the new banner m'lady Magdelena de Paz painted for the group. Once there, I was informed that the fashion I was wearing the Company of Pheonix's favor was not the way it was to be worn. So my humble Captain snatches a black belt out of his case and wraps it around my waist. I then decided he needed to know the rules of fashion and that the dress I was wearing was of the Italian ren style and belts just don't work. I was told to like it or........... :) All was ok once I informed him that I had brought food, and lots of it!!! Then it was all not ok again when i told him it was not hot links. :P I didn't see Wolf Star or the rest of the crew belly aching about it being 'light' foods.
WOOOHHHOOOO We were told by the Captain that it was time for us to get our letter of mark. BUT WAIT....I noticed one of our newest crew members was not wearing the personal favor I had given to him at 12th night. So I ask M'lord Madoric "where is the favor I gave to you"? With a holy cow look on his face he decides to tell me "it's gone". Come to find out he had let a girl cox him into letting her wear it!!! Once she had "tried it on", as he put it, he lost track of where it went. This would be the worst weekend no his life now!!! LOL!!! In that moment of questioning, I also noticed something else was missing, THE CREWS FAVOR!!! So I let my big mouth fly, and told the captain that something else was missing. When the Captain questioned Madoric of the whereabouts of the crews favor, Madoric replied that it was in the tent. Come to find out it was at home!!! DOUBLE TROUBLE!!! Madoric's rest of the weekend was spent trying to find someone who would have sympathy towards him since I was not letting it go, but he soon found out there was no one to feel sorry for him.
We had so much fun at the small Haffla that was held. Oh and a BIG WOOOHOOO to M'lady Magdalena for getting out and dancing for the 1st time at a Haffla. It took some coxing from the crew and our cousins with Wolf Star but she got out and did it. I was like a momma bird happy for her baby bird's 1st flight!
All in all after that it was a very good weekend and a very relaxing one. Other than hearing the word SNAKE at 6am and jumping from my bed. Captain and anyone in yelling distance now know that Lady Angelica is deathly afraid of snakes! Everyone found it very funny, my reaction, because I did all this from a dead sleep! Come to find out the snake was seen by the Captain as he was walking down some path. I didn't care it was seen and that was my qua to pack it up and head out!
It was a great getting to see old faces and meet new ones. I defiantly say it needs to happen again!!
So that's my story and I am sticking to it!! :P

> Lord Chrestien Brule, now that you have a bone-eh-fied 'Letter of Mark' signed by TRM, why don't you write us a few words about that 'deer in the headlight' look you were sporting in that Facebook video of the Letter of Mark being signed? And let us know just what that Letter of Mark cost you.
> I want to thank Lord Sasha for the wonderful bit of entertainment at last weekend's Stargate/Loch event. It seems he was walking right in front of God and Country when he stepped on Lady Angelica's dress and started wind milling. I now realize why nobody rushes to help me whenever I start to take a tumble; the hilarity of it is paralyzing! I didn't think Lord Sasha would ever get his legs back under his torso, but he kept mumbling his mantra, "Party, Thrust, Pie' fermo, Party, Thrust, Passo Grando, like only a true cadet of Don Armand's would. When he did finally right himself he quickly scanned the area to see if anyone saw his mishap; he was safe, there were no witnesses.
> I want to thank Lord Calvin for holding on to those three sticks while HE Dona Leah and HE Elisabeth set up the baronial pavilion.
> Lady Jillian and company provided some mighty tasty eats for the whole group, and everything was much appreciated.
> Since the lyst was already completely surrounded with pavilions when we arrived, we really appreciate the Phoenix Company and Wolfstar spending the night or arriving early enough to secured a spot for HE Elisabeth, me, and the rest of Bordermarch, along the lyst field.
> By the way, Bordermarch's Phoenix Company's new pavilion is looking mighty spiffy with all their banners and flags. There are some artist within that group who we must exploit!
> Our thanks go out to Lady Claire la Combe and friends for providing much needed food and drink for everyone.
> Olaf's new hair-do inspired me to be ughhhh... a better person?
> Lord Biau brought some of our Scribal Guild's gear to loan out during the event, it was much appreciated. I was concerned when he asked me to go over to the scribes who were using the gear and tell them that they couldn't keep the stuff!
> A few folks were accidently culled from our caravan to the event. We don't know what happened, but they ended up about 50 miles behind us.
> Lady Padraigin arrived at our departure point in a such timely manner so as to be able to depart with the rest of the crew. She even had time to show off to HE Elisabeth her new articulating monkey pendant.
> It was extremely hot during the day, but thankfully the wind was gusting just enough to blow the cool dust and grass particles high enough to be able to capture some with your eyes and mouth!
> I'm wondering if some of those who attended the event with us could write their own description of something that they either witnessed or pilfered during the day.
> We had a great time at the event, and we had fun visiting with all our Bordermarchers and friends, let's do it again!
