[Elfsea] Queens - Weather? Here's How to Prepare!

Let me add...

The event will occur.  A Queen's Champion will be chosen.  People will toughen up.

We held Mikaela's Queen's in Victoria, in July, in 110 degree heat with about 80% humidity.   And no shelter.

We held Kayleigh's Queen's in freezing weather, with sleet, in January, with all of us huddled under a single cloth pavilion, conducting one fight at a time.  

We Ansteorrans went for years without requiring a secondary, indoor site in case of foul weather.  It's only recently that this tremendous fear of the weather has set in.  

The event coordinators and kingdom seneschal have discussed at great length the measures we can take to mitigate any weather problems.  As we've done for decades, we'll do our best to handle the will of nature as it arises.  

So, rather than post gloom and portents ahead of time, why don't we all just plan on showing up, supporting our new Queen, making it clear (yet again) that Elfsea is one of the strongest baronies in the kingdom, and enjoy the day...rain or shine?

I'll look forward to seeing you all there.
