Yes, Michael and Mirabelis and several others early in the day,
and all the people that came to the work weekends 
and did the scrolls
and y'all for all the mowing days ahead of time.
It does take a village... or in our case a barony.
My point is that Brian has matured his leadership abilities over the last five years.
The way he approaches tasks and obstacles is different.
A smooth running event doesn't just happen.
Delegation is a learned art.
Commitment is a virtue.

  I totally agree. We are lucky to have such a hard working Baron who wears many hats and works so hard for us. Thanks for those chosen few who stayed to help take down the last many things needing to be done. I want to add Mike to that list of Dare, Magnus, and VNV. I saw his truck full of all of the kitchen trash etc. What a fun job that must have been to get rid of! Thanks again, xo G

    I would like to add my words of praise for Baron Brian's running of 
    Defender. He took over as Autocrat with short notice and did an excellent 
    job of pulling things together with the little time left. As far as I could 
    tell, everything that needed to be taken care of was competed without 
    exception. No unfinished tasks. Kudos. I must admit that I was skeptical 
    about his plans for the blue velvet tent when we started, but it functioned 
    beautifully and provided much need shade. Even when everyone else had 
    packed up their personal belongings and headed home, Brian stayed for hours 
    with a small hand full of helpers ( Dare, Magnus and myself ) to completely 
    breakdown the site, clean the kitchen, make several trips to the storeroom 
    and he even took pots home to be washed. Again, nothing remained undone. 
    As someone that has personally autocrated sixteen times, I tip my hat to you 

    I would remiss if I did not also add my thanks to Runa for a feast that was 
    served in a timely manner and was very tasty and diverse. I believe all 
    bellies were quite satisfied.

    P.S. I have the ropes from the horse stables which I will bring to Officers
