To echo His Excellency's words, if you weren't there you missed yet another great event from the folks of Chemin Noir. They always present the most imaginative and fun events and this year was no exception. An example that truly impressed me:
Instead of calling up their former champions, one by one and having them hand in their regalia and then calling the new ones to receive them, they wove a charming tale which included their Champions. As each outgoing Champion's name occurred in the story line, he/she brought forth the regalia and placed it before the thrones. When a new Champion's name came up in the story he/she came forward to claim the regalia. It worked like a beautiful dance--a refreshing addition to court!
Something else I liked was the idea of name cards at feast. As you reserved feast you could request to be seated with a group of friends. However, you could also choose to let them seat you (which we did). Since my husband was, regrettably, unable to attend, I especially appreciated the fact that I would not have to feel awkward about asking to join a table (yes, of course, I received invitations from dear friends). But, I thought, if I were a new person this arrangement would have made me feel much less nervous.
Thank you again, Chemin Noir for another exceptional event. Congratulations to the Autocrat, Lady Eve, who overcame obstacles imposed upon her by last minute changes from the site and I'm sure a million other annoying problems inherent to running any event. If she had not told me, I would never have known anything had ever gone amiss since from the outside the whole event ran beautifully.
I know many of you, like my husband, had no choice but to miss this event. Hopefully, next year you will be able, because I'm sure our Canton will again amaze us.
