Thank you for celebrating 20 Years of Warriors and Warlords with us!
The tentative dates for WW XXI are July 10th - 13th, 2014
Having finally gotten enough rest to be able to coherently string together a few words, the autocrats of WW would like to send our thanks to those of you who made this past weekendॶent possible.
Itࢥen a wonderful event and we look forward to seeing you all again next year!
First of all, thanks to the set-up crew ?without the hard work of these gentles over the days before the event opens, there would be no roads, no shade, no showers, no beautification of the site. Special thanks to our Resources Manager Eirik and to Camp Strawboss who, as usual, provided critical manpower and coordinated the meal plan. Thanks also to Onora৲anddaughter-minions and to Sean ?these young folks clocked in many hours of hard work in the sun and did so with consistently good spirits. Thanks to Fez and to Oz the Baker, his family, and that poor old trailer ?you guys did amazing amounts of work doing much of the heavy lifting! And thanks to all the other participants of the set-up week ?your contributions were felt throughout the week!
Thanks for the activities of the week go to all of our staff and martial activities coordinators and their volunteers. The plethora of classes, shoots, battles, and tournaments would not have been possible without many hours of planning in advance and without the assistance of many hands on site ?from the gatekeepers that welcomed attendees to site, to the info point folks who made certain people knew what they needed to go, to the marshals and teachers who ensured that our days were full of challenges and excitement, to icey tදlunteers that made certain everyone stayed cool during the event and went home stylishly attired. All of this would be for naught without appreciative attendees, so thank you also to those who traveled from the corners of the kingdom to be with us on Warriors and Warlords?twentieth birthday! Truly, this event is a group effort that brings together all of the best of our great Society! Thank you coordinators, volunteers, and attendees!
Once the event is over, however, there was still work to be done. Special thanks to all of the people who helped strike site once they had struck their own campsites. The ᳫ buckets?seemed to work well and I appreciate everyone who came buy to pick one up or otherwise pitch in to the clean up effort. Special thanks also to Vidi for use of his truck to haul supplies back to the storage facility ?we literally could not have gotten everything back without you!
Last but not least, we would like to thank Their Excellencies of Nordskogen and Jararvellir for their support and inspiration. Many of the special activities of this anniversary year were their special projects. Thanks also to Their Highnesses Anne and Hrodir and Their Excellencies of Windhaven, Care Anterth Mawr, and Carraig Ban who joined us on this happy occasion!
Yours in Service,
