Those of you that are acquainted with me from the days of yore, know that I, Marius Atreidae, have worked as a trusted liaison for Dukes, Kings and commoner alike.  I have carried secret messages, contracts of death and rules of engagement for a surprisingly varied list of movers and shakers.  Though I have been in semiretirement for the last few years, I have once again been hired to fulfill the role of liaison.  

For an undisclosed sum I am to make an announcement for a gentle who temporarily has no access to his usual message runners (the Raven's Fort List) at his place of labor.   While on an extended  sabbatical in his homeland the news has reached my solicitor of an outbreak of the Red Death among the staff of the university of higher education where he has for several years liberated the uninformed of their geographical ignorance.  Fearing to expose the world to his already infected runners and fearing even more to expose himself to the Red Death (or his co-workers), it is my task to announce the following.

The Lord of the Manor begs me announce that the sacred mowing of The Stones has commenced.  Under the watchful eye of said Lord Saracens with whirling blades have made the initial cut on strategic areas.  A second pass over the areas just before the Defender of the Fort hoop-la should leave the land as smooth as a Lizard Keep Homebrew.  All that will be left will be to remove any fresh troll spores.  

T.L.o.t.M. also begs me apologize for the erratic pattern of the mowed path between the Swiencamp and The Upright Stones.  Apparently the Saracens got into the Gongfermer Mead before staggering back to work.  T.L.o.t.M. assures me that the leather and bunny fur torture device with the chrome plated shackles and the twin bicycle horns, the pine scented air freshener, the string of 'dealybobs', the overhead mirror, and the personalized plates with "Love Hurts" written on them, was put to good use.  Those lucky Saracens.

Thank you for your attention.

A portion of this announcement was supplemented by The Assassins Guild of Ansteorra

if he shall gain the whole world,
and lose his own soul ?"

    Once again, the barony came together to prove that we can move mountains.  That is, assuming the mountains are made of small debris , wood, or pine needles.  The site work is going great.  I keep hearing that we're "running ahead of schedule", which makes me very, very nervous...

  We accomplished :

  1.  Swept roofs of kitchen and storage unit, moved needle debris to bonfire area
  2.  Disassembled and stored the metal tent uprights to reduce oxidation
  3.  Further organized debris around kitchen area.  Moved siege engine and restacked "boats" (round metal rings)
  4.  Preliminary cleaning / organizing inside the kitchen
  5.  Preliminary cleaning of the shower barrels
  6.  Moved showers to area discussed at meeting.  Mowed shower area
  7.  Inspected the pulleys on our main tent posts
  8.  Finished the tree removal on the equestrian field
  9.  Demolished the three spools near bonfire and added their wood to the fire pile
  10.  Mowed Sweincamp as well as a few other main camping areas
  11.  Repaired the broken table that was originally crafted by Cedric
  12.  Preliminary inspection / setting up of the Stones

  I am proud to thank all of you that came out and made the weekend such a success :

  Their Excellencies Brian and Fionna

  The main mowing will pull alot of our work together.  I am currently under the impression we will have three brushhogs.  We have one official workday left, September 8th and 9th.  This will be our busiest weekend, as there are many jobs that must be saved until then.  I would list them, but you would fear the list and run.  We will also have a team out there early on Friday, September 14.  The event is only 1 month away...  32 days away...   768 hours away....  46,080 minutes away...  2,764,800 seconds away (which sounds like FOREVER) ...

  Till then,   Alaric
