I am sorry to say, that once again, someone's lack of preparation has resulted in my inability to avoid it becoming my emergency.

The Saturday events, Horatio was to be with bells on for the archery event. However, due to my wife's cousin's wedding that I was not attending, I am going to have to miss it. I will not be back from dropping off things after my children's therapy (I wasn't supposed to attend that this weekend either) until 1-130 eastern. An hour to 90 minutes late.

If the consensus is to hold the event, I would be obliged to attend and enjoy. However, if even one person would have to miss the archery event to do so, I would offer a veto.

Arianna and AK fulfilled my dream of actually going to a festival instead of running it!

I had a fun time, stayed up WAY too late, and there was lots of witty banter.

I was late to the events, and my video card (dust covered) chose the middle of the event to try to melt down. I made it back in time for the mage duel, and had much fun.

Abundant Thanks to the DMs - Arianna and Analog Kid

Also special thanks to Gonz, who took pity on me and streamed the Bard Competition to me so I could watch on my tablet.
I doubt, therefore; I might be

a lot of work and thought went into this. It was a good bit of fun. Thanks to the team who put it together.

P.S. Not sure which DM did the NPC in the bardic competition who did a comedic routine, but it was very amusing.
