To the warm and welcoming area of Ayreton
- I would like to thank everyone that I met this weekend, and those from
the past few weeks, for their overwhelmingly welcoming hospitality.
It is always difficult moving to a new location, and it seems it is
even more so, when you have to move for work reasons. Coming to a new
area, where you know no one, & are many hours away from family and
friends, is never a pleasant experience. Granted it is easier when you
are in the SCA as there normally are people out there with shared
interests, you just need to find where they are at :-) .
Though my lord, His Lordship Lukas Mesmer, and myself, have been in
this area for over a year, this was the first event I was able to
attend in the Kingdom. Everyone I met was so hospitable and friendly,
it made me look forward to my next Ayreton event. For that, I thank
you all, it really helps with the transition into a new area &
Kingdom. In particular, there were a few souls, I would like to thank,
who have this transition so much easier. I would like to start by
thank Desco & Anton for allowing me to volunteer my time. A girl with
a yellow belt can feel useless if she isn?t keeping her hands busy. I
would also like to thank the ?Pirates? and ?Thieves? for making me
feel welcomed, and allowing me to tag along. Among that I would like
to thank ?Da Mamma? for her kind generosity, and her hug, as well as
to Baight, Diane & Gwen. You are the kind of kind gentles who due your
kingdom & group proud. Most importantly, I would like to thank Lady
Keile, for allowing me to be her shadow for the day, without such a
kind friend, I doubt we would have ever made it to our first middle
Finally, I would like to thank you to everyone who smiled at me,
welcomed me, or remebered me from the Italian Dress class. Even the
little nod in the hall, made me feel so very welcomed into this kind
For those of you who have not met my lord, I promise he does exist and
will come meet all of you soon, hopefully on the heavy field with his
pole arm, and afterwards with his beer.
Once again thank you to the entire group of Ayreton. Out of all the
kingdoms I have had the pleasure to play in, I have a feeling this
might group might be one of my favorite.
