HW New Year After Report
- If your were hungry, it's because you didn't stop drinking to eat!! I
even managed to stop and get 2 of those pancakes (they were as good as
they said). For those of you who could not make it for one reason or
another, here is how most of it went, and you can get more info on the
fun from those who were there. I tried to visit or say hi to as many as
I could, but with between 175 and 200 (the numbers supprised me) in and
out, it was a little hard to see everyone: So to those of you I missed,
glad you were able to make it out and share in our fun.
First, the items I have: (If you have an item missing, post it and if
someone has it they can get in touch with you.)
1. Blue enamel bake pan, no lid.
2. Glass, pyrex pie dish (may have had the sweet potato pie in it).
3. 1 pr, corduroy pants, dark green, elastic waist and cuffs, no tag so
might be home made (good workmanship), left in bag, with pr. green felt
4. Quilt and afghan left at camping booth (Pidge?)
And now the news:
For New Years at Hawkwood, the weather could not have been better
(except maybe a little warmer?) All the reports of snow around us, and
not a drop got to us, no muddy grounds to contend with except for where
you spilled your beer (and both kegs got floated). 3 fire rings helped
to keep us warm and gave almost everyone room to gather around them
(special thanks to the self appointed fire tenders who kept them
supplied and going). We used almost all the wood we had by the
We had drumming in the Boner tent, Dragon Tribe showed up and partied
with us and did fire, Crow play some good guitar, and Hawk and Lilly
showed up late Monday night and played. We had a good sounding music
system and played mostly celtic music on it all weekend.
The food that was brought in was amazing. I started eating and snacking
saturday afternoon, and did not stop until tuesday. There were only
bones left on 3 fried turkeys; the super kitchen on wheels turned out
some delicious brisket, along with cooking up burgers and other items.
If there was not you were able find a food item to eat, then we know
that you are not an earthling. And a big thanks for the tables, those
worked great for serving out of the kitchen.
I caved in about am, and the party was still going strong. Besides what
"extra" fun I say a couple have (and had to be put to bed), I understand
that there was some more fun later that needed to be slept off today (I
hope you all recover in time for Excalbur).
For those of you who didn't keep track, there was 2 hand fasting Monday
night; Ice Man / Cinder, and Lord Dredd / Lady Gellalaine.
Clean up this morning was easy. I looked like everyone cleaned their
camp sites very well and we did not have to pick any extra trash. I
thank Lord Dredd of Chaos for letting us use his truck several times to
haul trash to the dumpster, it saved us from doing the bag drag this
year (a total of around 25 bags for the weekend).
I know I have missed some things, but I couldn't be everywhere.
Overall, this was the best New Years party we had there yet. I am happy
with all the friends that showed up, and missed the one's who were not
able to make it.
I wish a healthy and harty New Year to everyone.
Sir Arie, Spirit of Hawkwood
