well another castellan is past 
and even though there were fewer archers and thrown weapons contestants than in previous years due to lots of rain on friday and mud .
there were some major improvements this year !!!
the biggest and most noticable was the nice new port o potty  near the ranges !!. 
major kudo's to the autocrats / ranger roger ,  for it's placement this year. !!

also noted : was we had a shade pavillion for the 2nd year in a row !!
and there was actually a nice new thrown weapons target year !!
and all the marshals got to participate in other activities , instead of living on the ranges all day , yay !!
for the first year ever , we actualy had more than enough cold liquid to last everyone all day !!! (  yay water bearers , way to go !! )

the tw target will be installed at the northkeep missile range soon  = )

to the surprise of everyone ( mostly especially myself ) i was not  banished or beheaded after being called before the king while at the missile ranges. 
instead , i was given the award of the " sable talon for archery " ( and yes , i was wearing shoes this time ; )
thanx to all that had anything to do with the award !, now i have to try to prove i'm worthy to wear it .

also , just for word fame , i was almost defeated in my attempt to win castellan archer again , by a newbie named doug griffen who was attending his second event . very good shooting doug !!! ( i only beat him by 1 point in the shoot off )

kudo's to ldy . adernan ( sp? ) the child and youth archery went very smoothly , as did the youth spear throw.
to all our child and youth archers , good job, see you next year = )

i'm told that my students , both formal; and informal did very well in all their activities, but i was so busy , i don't have the details yet.
so , congratulations to all my students !!!!! , keep up the good work!!

for those that missed the feast , big mistake ...
although this was the cooks first feast , he did a great job.
i found nothing in the feast to be anything less than great, ( ok, so the humis had a slightly different flavor than i prefer, but it was still tasty = )
and yes , i ate the whole thing ; )
and i can't say for anyone else , but our table server was fantastic !!!
and all those little kids running around kept mugs full all through feast ! , vivat the munchkins !!

there are items i'm forgetting , i'm sure, but i'm still brain fried .

ahh, congrats to ld. gryfydd aptorius as our newest archery marshal !!!

oh, i do want ot send a special thanx out to all the marshals that assisted on the ranges this year !!!
