Well...I am sure that the Fashion show (Sat. 1:15 pm to 2:15 pm) will be of interest to all who do more than one time period, admire those who can sew or just love history.

As for the Cat Calling or Wolf Whistles...please keep them to a minimum. I would think that there may be a gent or two in the fashion show...this is yet to be determined.

Sorry Lady B, must behave... as always... :lol:

Can not interfere with the fashion show

And unfortunately there is no historical jeopardy game this year. Myself and crewe members may be attending a private function on Friday evening... if I do, I shall ask to bring you along.

Sorry Lady B, but looks as if the private party may not occur as folks want to attend the Monty Python game

Behave?!? :ph34r: Is that even possible? Let alone probable?

Pity. I'm sure it would have been a wildly wicked time whatever ye conjured.

Hmmm.... so, watching that Monty Python whatever-it-is might not be too bad... if there be a re-Pete of last year's Jeopardy. B) God help us all. I intend to be there for this one then!

I'll be playing that weekend by ear and sight. Just wingin' it all. But will be attending the Ball for sure! :P

Granted, no piratey appearance that weekend as it will all be more Rev War styles. I'll leave th' piratey-ness for PyrateCon.

I have a feeling though that this year could very well put last year to shame. :ph34r:

How is your movie trivia?

Friday Night Game - Monty Python and the Holy Grail!

My movie trivia is okay. But I have memorized every line of dialogue from MP & the HG -- does that give me an advantage?

No Historical Jeopardy at all? Disappointment. I will drown my sorrows in Grogtinis.

Maddogge -- What are ye talking about? I have seen ye wearing undergarments; they were mine, and you paraded around with them on your head during the.. er... Oh, dear, too much information, I fear.

Regarding the seminars, I certainly plan to attend the straight razor one. The speaker -- a Mister Todd out of Fleet Street, I hear, gives the closest damn shave you ever had. I'll sit in the front row with a meat pie (It's lean -- must be Royal Marine).

Probably also want to attend the Lady Reenactor one -- if I can get the Missus to attend, she will be interested as well.

I was considering offering a seminar on "How To Have The Most Outrageous Fun During Reenactor Fest." But would it was feared that only newbies would attend, while anyone who attended RF2 would run away in horror.

I was considering offering a seminar on "How To Have The Most Outrageous Fun During Reenactor Fest."

Need to get there early... and stash some movie reference books in my pockets...

Hmmm... a most Evil plot is brewing... now if I can find a white-streaked black wig for myself...

...hmm, you may see a face or two you know up there!

Actually, I found out about this seminar from a fellow CW reenactor who is participating in the panel.

Does that include; "How to handle yourself on the Dance Floor" and "Grogtini...more than a drink!"

More like:

"How To Scrape Yourself Off the Dance Floor"

"Know Your 'My Little Ponies' For Fun and Profit"

"The Development of Soviet-Pirate Relations of the Seventeeth through Twentieth Centuries"

"Advanced Dance Techniques: Disadvantages of Jackboots"

"Improve Your Gaydar: How To Recognize When You Are Being 'Hit On'"

"Bartending 101: Cutting Yourself Off"

Let me know if I left anything out.
