Event Wrap-up
Have been thinking of what to say for a few days.  I want to thank everyone who attended, helped, staffed and behaved J Npc’s busted their asses all 3 days, the tavern staff was amazing MJ was a massive help all over the place and could not talk most of the weekend.  The Marshals are always the best Jarod marshal always delivers a great team! The weekend was a load of fun I was very tired after this ToC I was on duty all 4 nights till very late one night was blue o’ clock. I did not see any real incidents in the evenings and to my knowledge only one alcohol incident where the person miss judged the damp wet level and slipped in to the wet area..

With some of what has been happening in the game, our community and in the world I found it Very important to ensure the safety of all of our players personally. I hand checked every single weapon, shield, bow and arrow on site. Was this time consuming? Yes…It also took up MY time but I think this year it was necessary. I failed a 45lb bow, 50+ arrows with split heads, Pipe arrows  with cracked pipe under the duct tape,  a tun of brand new weapons with No thrusting tips, broken down weapons with no strapping tape holding the pipe to the foam,. Foam with holes in it, compressed thrusting tips, foam with worn down  contact areas mid sword where core material was easily felt and much more. Shields with sharp metal exposed and foam edges not secured to the shields edges at all.  Next year we to  will have  a few people doing this to speed things up but it is important and seeing what was found I would suggest it happen at more events.

For the most part people were very well behaved, stayed in Character and in garb as best they could. Some of the new garb people are getting is very nice, we even had a great Toga ! We did have a OOC area for Friday night’s Celtic game with a wide screen attached to a tree. The OOC area stayed where I asked them to stay and at a respectable noninvasive level .The IC players respected their space, and  Saturday everything was put away and most enjoyed the rest of the weekend.

The War tournament on Sunday, some injuries before any fighting started set a tone I think BUT from all accounts all the fights were very clean. The awards went pretty fast the choices of prizes seemed to make people happy.  Site was left pretty clean and the trash was sorted pretty well.

Changes for next year: 
We have been asked to have a camp site competition.
Children under 12 will not be in adult tournaments and quests.
Children at activities must have an adult with them from now on.
Champion’s tournament will be monitored more closely for “teaming up”.
