Sigh.  Thanks Gwynn.  :-)  Of course, that would be what I forgot.
The date - this Saturday, November 23.
Yes, Kimmie, I know *now* that conflicts with Gate's Edge.  And no, I didn't do that "on purpose."
We set the Pampered Chef party date for Nov. 23 because Rachel and Dusty were doing Defender feast, I had *planned* on doing Ren Faire, we were all doing Autumn Melees, we didn't want to conflict with Thanksgiving (and the traditional Stargate Harvest Fest/newcomers revel), and any later would be pushing it to get the Pampered Chef stuff back and distributed before Christmas (and I'd be going crazy with finals).  That date "appeared" free.  I checked the Ansteorran calendar back in September - but I was just checking it for stuff *we* planned to go to - there were no conflicts I saw with *my* schedule.  The revel grew out of the plans for the Pampered Chef party - we figured we'd just make an evening of stuff since we'd all be home for once and because we'd have leftover food from that.  Plus it was right after faire - what a great time to invite the newcomers out!  I didn't check the Ansteorran calendar again when we started talking about a newcomer's revel - It was only a few weeks ago that I realized this would conflict with an event y'all were holding.
I had announced this at populace and folks announced it at the business meeting, but since I wasn't on the email list (don't have email at home), I didn't send it to the email list until now.
If you were planning on going to Gate's Edge - by all means - please do so.  If you don't want an all day thing or want something less formal - come on out!

Let's try this ONE MORE TIME. One message out in the ether because I wasn't signed up yet. One message the gods know where because we had a powerout right as I was moving the pointer toward the send button. Well, you know what they say about 3rd times . . .

We're having a party at our place!!! In theory this is a cross between a housewarming and a newcomer's revel. Last weekend was the last weekend of TRF, and Malcom already has some of the sign-up sheets for previous weekends. We're going to invite the newcomers out, so bring a book or two on your favorite SCA subject. I don't know if anyone will show, but if not, you can always show off your interests to those of us who aren't SCA newcomers, but who are newcomers to the subject.

Also, I've got an old Kingdom Dance tape, so we can move the furniture around and have those who've been going to dance guild show the rest of us what they've learned. If the weather stays nice we can do it outside by tiki-torch and freak out the neighbors!

Wear garb if you want. Wear mundanes if you want. Whatever you're comfortable in. We won't laugh. I'm a freak - I'm more comforable in garb, so that's what I'll wear.

Revel starts at 7:30. We're having stone soup (bring something to put it in if you want - think beef stew), leftovers from the Pampered Chef (spiffy kitchen toys) party (5 p.m. - call me if you're interested), and anything else folks want to bring.

'Zander - Call me. I want to talk to you about a cloak . . .

If you're interested in sewing in the afternoon, give me a shout. If you don't want to deal with Pampered Chef stuff, we'll kick you out in the garage (sewing area) with a machine or two and fabric.

Directions: From Huntsville - Take I-45 North. Exit #123 - Highway 1696. Make a left on 1696. The second road (not counting the access road) on the left is Woodview. Make a left on Woodview. We're #28 (5th or 6th house on the right).

The phone number is (936) 436-0205.

I've probably forgotten something, but hopefully not. See you folks there!!!


Yup, the date.....G
