The gathering was listed in the big white book (which has rules & classes & war scenarios, etc.) and was in an A&S tent (#14 IIRC).

I cheated and camped with the West Kingdom (primarily fighters & their consorts as well as some royalty). It's cheating because (1) it's my kingdom and i camp with these people all year (i had always hoped to camp with Kiri, since she invited me a couple times, but i didn't make it to Pennsic those years); and (2) it's at the top of Cardiac (aka Heart Attack) Hill and an easy walk to the part of merchants row around the barn and not too hard to get to the A&S tents and the other merchants across the road. My first and only other Pennsic i camped in the Enchanted Ground and had a wonderful time there... but not so wonderful going up that &*%$# hill (my bad knees, plantar fasciitis, and back problems)

After taking several excellent classes and at least on downright pathetically dismal class, i am inspired to teach at least one cooking class at my next Pennsic - not sure if that will be 2012 or 2013. Finances and health will tell.

Sorry i didn't get to meet up with you this Pennsic, Phlip.
Urtatim (that's err-tah-TEEM)
apparently still Anahita to some Westerners
