Walking On The Sun

So, this past weekend was Lugh. There are many things I can, and will say about Lugh, but first I have to say something about the weather. It was, to put it mildly, DAMN HOT!
Now, understand, I’m a fat man and I can start sweating whenever the temp gets above seventy degrees or so. It was over seventy degrees when I walked outside of the door to go to the event at 6:45 AM. By 10AM or so it had gone beyond merely hot and was quickly approaching ungodly hot. By 2:00 PM I was seriously wondering if a nice relaxing day spent on the side of an active volcano might be cooler. Ok, I’m exaggerating a little, but just a little.

Despite the heat, and the relatively low turnout, which I think can be blamed on the heat and the high price of gas, it was a very nice event. Mistress Vashti did a very good job of organizing everything, and despite a few minor obstacles in the morning everything went well.

As I write that last paragraph, I have to admit that I’m not being fair. There were not really any obstacles, it’s just that things were not done the way I would have done them if I had been running things. It is arrogant of me to think all events should be run the way I run things. The fact is that the event was well run and everybody had a very good time. The feast was also well done, and everyone seemed to enjoy it. It was just a damn hot day.
I just have to say I loved the Graffiti Wall.

A newcomer to Grey Niche, Martin, won the archery tournament. I am ashamed to admit that I don’t know who won the Rapier tournament or Marcus Gracchus Wheel of Fire Tournament. Pol Uto traveled quite a long way to display his interesting A&S projects on Roman Glass and Concrete. Jonna was the only local person to display in the A&S display, and her piece of weaving was quite nice.
The silent auction for the Grey Niche Gulf Wars Gate Fund was very successful. Every item that had been donated sold. That means I did not have to haul anything home, and that made me VERY happy. I need to write a letter to the yahoo group thanking everyone for their donations, and thanking everyone for buying the stuff. I plan to hold another one at Samhain.

There’s been some other things on my mind lately regarding the SCA, problem is I’m just not sure how to write about them without sounding like a whiney twit. If I can figure out how to do that I’ll post more later this week.
