Actually, the way the revel is used has changed over the course of the years.
It started as a place we could bring interested people immediately and was in
persona and garb for the most part. Somewhere, in the years I was away, it
changed to a decompression after party.
AEla, just making an observation.

I do have to say that going to the revel and being able to use it as a
'decompression' is really a nice thing. We don't typically wear garb, it
is more of a 'we made it!' type get together where everyone that helped can
bond, relax, and just have some fun. I worry that if it turns into an
extension of the fair or a 'mini-event' that it will cause a smaller
turnout due to expectations...
But it isn't my Barony, only my observation as an attendee and close cousin
