I was out on the grounds today and saw what appeared to be construction for a new front gate by B gate. Anybody have more details?

(I know I could post a question to the list, but this community gets so little traffic I thought I'd use it as an excuse to post something here.)

Really dumb last minute question:

Anyone have the address to mail campground applications to? It's not on the form and I want to see if I can catch the afternoon mail (coming quite soon). Doh.

Does anyone remember Fest being closed for weather ever before? I've never seen it, but though I've been going for a long time, I don't go every day. Anyway, I was shocked!

What IS a Renaissance Festival? Feb. 21st, 2007 @ 04:50 pm

I checked the wikipedia... I thought much of it was interesting, but this really interested me:

While many of those who remember the idyllic and transportative nature of the earlier fairs (especially those fairs operating with a non-profit spirit) lament the growth of the fairs as businesses, new generations of "Rennies" continue to find the same sort of joy in their work at the still-popular modern fairs.

So wait- we work at a modern Renaissance Festival? :) But mostly I was intrigued by the "lament the growth of the fairs as businesses" line.. I wouldn't agrue with it, in fact, I think a lot of the frustrations to be had at Fest stem from this lamentation. But is it good, bad, or other?

I saw this article, I thought that it was pretty neat. Jan. 30th, 2007 @ 12:27 am

» Hello, all!
Just a post to let people know who I am. My name is Justin, and I have been working at RenFest since... September 3rd. I work at the fencing booth and enjoy it quite a lot. You all may have seen me various places, as I have been a patron (playtron) for several years now and have run around with the peasants and hung out quite a bit at Mac's Pub.
So, yeah. Glad to be here! Enjoy the summer!
