Sorry for the lateness of this, but when one starts a new job, some
things just take precedence.  I would like to thank all those who helped
load the trailer on Friday and setup that day (Robin, Caelin, Ker Megan,
Fearghus, Raimond, Stella, William,  Cassandra, Jacob, Daniel of Cameron
and Armand) and those who helped unload the trailer as well as tear down
the site (Robin, Caelin, Ker Megan, Fearghus, Raimond, Stella, William,
Cassandra, Jacob, Timothy, Anezka, Irina, Arabella, Dirk, Maria,
Llywellyn, Tomas & Rixende, Genvieve & Seamus, Morgan Cain, Logan,
Madelina, Armand and Amilyne).  I also want to thank everyone who came
out either on Saturday or Sunday or both days to make this one of the
best Highland Games demos we've ever had.  I think we gave out something
like 50 + Newcomer Scrolls and invitations and if we have that many
Newcomers, HL Brigit is going to be very busy!

Once again, I think we had a very impressive demo, and perhaps we can
pull people in just like we did when Lady Honor became one of us.

At Fighter Practice on Sunday, there will be a post-demo discussion
about what to do better next year, held at the pleasure of the Vicar and
Vicaress.  We already have a volunteer to run the A&S for next year, but
we always want other input.

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

"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
