GA Ren Fest Moot. April 15th, 2023

Post by redhandfilms »

APRIL 15th MEETUP!

Mae Govannen, Rangers. I am proposing a meetup for any GA/Southeast Rangers. GA Renaissance Festival, opening day! Currently (until Fed 14th) tickets are Buy One, Get One Free.

My wife and I are attending opening day and I will be in my ranger kit. So, any rangers in the area should join. We'll figure out a specific time to meet up at one of the pubs. Who's with me? Rangers, sound off!

Oh you know I'll be there! Still got a few more details I'm working on garb-wise, but just broke in stone new boots today. New bow arriving Wednesday. New cloak material tomorrow. It's all coming together. Really the big challenge I'm facing is belts.

Got a lot of my kits stuff squared away, and came into some money and ordered some more stuff. Also got my ticket confirmations for the wife and I. So I'll be there and in full garb, no less! And then we can use this outing to plan future outings in our area! A vicious cycle of outing-based-outings!

I’d love to join as well! Still working on putting together my kit, but I should have something workable by then! I just got in the material for my ruana cloak, I’ve just got to get some serviceable boots and also find a good period belt!

Exactly. No kit, partial kit, if you prefer to do Ren Fest in pirate garb... Whatever. I'll be in as much kit as I can bear. Not doing my full pack of course.
It will just be good to meet in person. I'm thinking something like meet at the Drunk Monk pub at 1pm?

Ok not gonna lie doing the 16th would work far better for me for work. Would that work for you guys?

1 WEEK! Just a reminder, we are 1 week away from Georgia Ren Fest. Any Rangers attending opening day (April 15th), please meet at the Drunk Monk Pub at 1pm. Ranger garb is not required, so if you're dressed otherwise, please introduce yourself to any cloaked ranger you see!

Sorry you can't make it 15th, but let's use this space for anyone going to GA Ren Fest 2023. Anyone going any weekend announce it here in case others are going to be there at the same time.

Yup tomorrow at 1300 at the Monk. Gotcha!

As for any other weekend, I may still be talked into going if my in-laws decide to go or something. So I agree we should all post any given weekend we plan to be there.

Most Faires say the same thing on their sites but do have a peace tie policy. The announcement is to give them some protection from those that hear weapons and whine-on-line. Those folks don't know what "piece tied or cable tied" is and only hear that there will be weapons there.

Yeah I ended up just leaving them in the car and felt naked all day until I saw a dude with his bow and then felt both naked and envious.

But got to briefly meet two other rangers before I had to go off on a lengthy shopping spree with the wife. But now she looks downright hobbity. Got a head to toe wardrobe and she loves it.
