Greetings Elfsea!

"Thank you!" to all those who helped at the Knowne World Dance & Music
Symposium this past weekend, as well as those who volunteered at the
Highland Games demo. It was inspiring to see so many lend assistance. HL
Philip and Lord Ceatta each did marvelous jobs with their respective events.

"Muchas Gracias" to Lady Maria for thanking many of the volunteers at the
Highland Games demo and her work with the A&S and providing the fighter's
favors and Daniel & Siobhan's embroidered devices for the Blue & White.
Thanks also go to Timothy for the Newcomer's scroll and Rixende for the
Newcomer Revel invitations. Both of those looked wonderful and I believe
virtually all of them got handed out.

I know on Friday's setup we had Ceatta, Robyn, Caelin, Ker Megan, Fearghus,
Raimond, Stella, William,  Cassandra, Daniel of Cameron and Anezka. Most of
those at setup were there at tear down as well and I remember also seeing
Timothy, Irina, Arabella, Llywellyn, Tomas & Rixende, Genvieve & Seamus,
Morgan Cain and I saw Logan & Madelina policing the area for trash.

Additional Thanks go out to Stella, Tomas/Rixende and Caelin/Pyro for the
use of their personal pavilions. Anezka and Tera <sp?> helped all-day, both
days with water bearing and I saw Don Alaric, Raimond, Caelin, Tristan &
Darius (among others) out there marshaling many rounds. Also among others, I
saw Rixende, Timothy and Raimond actively walking the crowd during the
fighting demos and Duchess Larissa, and Duchess Willow helping with
hospitaling. Other distinguished visitors included Earl Duncan, Duke
Jonathan, Duke Seamus and HE Magery de Bray and Loch Ruadh's Lord Dohmnall.

Many fighters, I know I'll miss one or two but, there was: Vix, Dux, Aria
<sp> (R-E-A), Stella, Tristan, William, John (Donnel's husband), Daniel
Stewart (armored up both days but only got to fight on Sunday), Fearghus,
Duncan, Jonathan, Wolf, Seamus, Ceatta, Caelin, Brighid, Daniel of Cameron
and Dirk. I'm sure there were more. (Note to self: don't wait 3 days to give

Master Airaklee announced the reformation of the Arthurian Company and
confirmed HL Fearghus and Lord Seamus as the first this year to commit
themselves to this historic fighting unit.

And "Thank you" to His Lordship Philip White for listing the awards that
were given at the KWDMS. (quoted below) In addition to those, a few more
were given at the Games.

Irina Moreskaia - Rising Star of Ansteorra (from Steppes Warlord)
William Palfrey - Portcullis (from Springfaire)
Seamus' Portcullis had also been intended for last Springfaire

The 2 Normans (Lord William & Lord Tristan) made admirable efforts to engage
the spectators and fought a thumb-wrestling match to determine the holder of
the Mace. After a fierce dual, Ld. William honorably yielded and Lord
Tristan holds the Mace until next year's demo. The buckler went to Lord
Seamus for his amazing "deaths". :-)

Once again, thank you all. If I've neglected to list your name, well, it's
on purpose. Yeah, just to see if you're paying attention. Yes, that's it. So
please let me know that you were paying attention, so that others might know
as well. :-)

In the service of kingdom, crown and Elfsea, I remain,
-=Armand Dragonetti=-
Lord Elfsea
