Because that's a good place to start.

This weekend was Her Stellar Majesty Queen Amelot Lisette de Blamont's Queen's Champion and Guardian of the Queen's Hope Tournaments.  The Stronghold of Hellsgate hosted the event and evidently, we did well.

The event was held on Camp Mabry, in the camping area and the site was declared a winner by just about all and sundry.  There was a charity race being held on post the same morning, so we had a bit of a SNAFU with the traffic situation and road closure, but overall?  It went really well.  The gate guards were polite, professional and got our folks through the gate with little to no hassle. 

I did the site tokens, and they were pretty well received I think.  Basically, I copied a page from a German fencing manual, then copied that painting with some quotes, to make bookmarks.  The originals were framed for HRM, as her site token.

I also ended up with waterbearing, not that I minded.  It just kinda slipped Liam's mind, and so I grabbed it.  Sara and Ghilean helped like crazy, though, so I appreciated them manning the table when I couldn't or was off being a social butterfly.

Overall?  OMG great event.  Exhausting, but fun, and everyeone seemed to have a good time.  I also made the Queen cry, first thing in the morning, so I count that as a win.  (They have all go to invest heavily in waterproof makeup.)

Uh.  Other than that, not much else going on.  Tired and sore from the weekend, but back at work and trucking along.

This weekend coming up is a quiet weekend, and then next weekend is 3 Whosiwhatsis, where I WILL be fighting.  In fact, I've got ONE scroll lined up for Gulf Wars, and that's IT for a while.  I'd like to concentrate on my fighting, and get at least some of the rust knocked off before I take on another commission, so I'm going to tie my hands to my knees so they don't float up any more.

You mean "about to throw up," I'm good to hook!  (This entry is brought to you by the letter O, M and G, and by the words "TOTALLY FREAKIN' RANDOM.")

God...our first (VERY FIRST) event as a group is on Saturday, and I'm...well, I'm not the autocrat, thank God, but still...I'm worried SOOOO much. 

This is a big, big deal.  It's the Laurels Prize Tourney, and so far, we're on track to have a great event, but still....EEEEEEE! 

What if people get lost?  Or don't want to pay the entry fee to the park?  Or the building burns down?  Or I fall into the lake?  With my portfolio???  It's a good think I'm *not* the autocrat, or I'd be eating Tums like candy.  (I already am, but that's pretty normal, actually.)

Everyone has worked really hard to get to this point, and if I get stupid teary, please forgive me.  This group has amazed me.  They've just been...amazing.  Honestly, we've had some bumps along the way,'s just been amazing.  Wonderful and amazing and the amount of support we've gotten floors me.

Please note, I am displaying at LPT, and since I've never done that before, I'm considering "getting lost" on my way to the event. or being held up at pen-point for my portfolios...*whistles innocently*

This week is getting back into the swing of things at work, and starting in on the Dispatch.  :-D
