you and your lady were missed as were many others, but everyone should know 
that they missed an amazing event  !!!
where else do the champions sit feast at head table ? and speaking of feast 
, omg !!! from 1st course to last nothing but pure delight !!!
but i must say that by the pork course i was tempted to just nibble being 
pretty full already, but it was so good i couldn't resist seconds ; /  , 
then i only had room for 1 piece of melt in your mouth cake, and had to 
completely forgo the nut bread : (  ( i was too full already )
 where else could you be entertained by some of the most well known bards in 
the kingdom as well as some of the newest bards , with at least 3 brand new 
pieces written at or just before the event ? , where else can you witness 
archery competitions so challenging and fun ? ( i shot with loaner bow and 
arrows , didn't win but had fun ; )
or thrown weapons competitions that require 5 throw off rounds to finaly 
decide the victor ? ( way to go cian !!! ) , or get to see the first batch 
of new medalions for the new baronial service award as well as the people 
reciving them ; )
i was working so didnt get to see a lot of what else was going on, but like 
i said, a truly amazing event !!!

hope to see everyone next year !!!

Be Safe , Be Happy, Have Fun
