Another Kaleidoscope Gathering is over, and I hear that people are still being ripped from Raven's Knoll kicking and screaming.
I have a lot to say about this new incarnation of our beloved festival,
but it will have to wait till this message is communicated, and my
super amazing experience this year fully chewed and digested, and the
"Cologne-de-Fest" aroma fully dissipated, and Fest Grime completely
chiseled off once and for all.
This email is all about a Suggestion Box.
the course of the festival, I wound up coming in contact with many
valid complaints, concerns, suggestions, and brilliant ideas.
the way I see it, Lord Austin and Lady Maryanne pretty much adopted a
fully grown beast, gave it a complete makeover, and moved it to a new
home. As far as I'm concerned, compared to the logistical disasters
that could have happened, I must say, they performed a stupefying
miracle this year. Bravo!
Having said that, I have set up a
suggestion box in the DATABASE section of the Kaleidoscope Gathering
YahooGroup (with MA's blessing), because some of the suggestions and
constructive criticisms I heard by the end of the festival were
brilliant; and your suggestions recorded here for Austin and Maryanne
will only help them in making everyone's experience at next year's
festival, and those down the road, that much more enjoyable and
memorable. The suggestion box entries are anonymous, by the way.
try to let everyone you know, who were guests this year, about this
Suggestion Box and this Yahoo Group, because it has been the official
communication forum for Kaleidoscope Gathering for about the past decade
or so. Let people know, lest there be chaos and confusion.
is VERY important with a new endeavour. Quirks have to be ironed out,
and quite often the only way we find out about it is through YOU.
The Suggestion Box can be found here:
