PostSubject: Sterling Renaissance Festival   Sun Jun 29, 2008 4:00 am

U.J.A.C. Ren Fair trip August 2nd !!!
Damn I canít wait! Well I (dunno about the rest of you) missed the advance ticket sale, it ended June 27th, so instead only paying $18.95 Iíll have to spend $22. Oh well. Letís see... looks like we picked the perfect weekend. August 2nd is the Celtic Celebration. Hereís what the site says:

You'll get a lilt in your kilt if you come to the Sterling Renaissance Festival's Celtic Celebration!

Thrill to the sound of a bagpipe band, see traditional Scottish and Irish dancing, cheer athletes as they compete in a Caber Toss Competition and demonstration, and for this weekend only enjoy the return of our favorite Celtic band, Empty Hats! Enjoy Festival musicians, Merry Mischief, Cantiga, Crannog, and others as they showcase their Celtic selections.

Traditional foods of Scotland and Ireland will be featured in Festival food booths, as merchants showcase their Celtic flare. Be sure to stop at the pubs to have a pint of Guinness, the featured beer for the occasion. Kick up your heels and raise a glass at one of the many Celtic sings happening through out the day.


Iím gonna rent a costume, gotta try to buy period boots/shoes online 'cause I called and they donít supply footware. I didnít think they would. I spent like $170 last trip, 'course I was paying for two that time. I think Iíll double my budget and splurge a bit. $300 should be enough for one person... unless I go crazy and buy those $1,000 boots hahaha. Seriously though, someone restrain me if I go into that booth.

So who amongst us is going?

Groups / Motorcoach
Legitimate groups of 20 or more.

Adult $18.95
Child $9.95

i dunno if we can do that with the people i think you had in mind?
besides it's not that much of a price difference between group and what Dave said..(like what, a dollar and a nickel?).. i dunno
i think that's maybe stretching it

Ok bring your $20 tomorrow so Dave can get you tickets at a discount (if he's able to), next week might be too short a time for him to grab 'em. I know I shoulda posted this sooner but I just thought to remind ppl. I was going to mention it at the last meeting but forgot.

umm www.nws.noaa.gov is now saying that sterling is going to have a 70% chance of rain this saturday. do we want to still go this saturday with the rain or go this sunday where it will be sunny out?

just asking, but also i know the weather forecast can change again.


5pm edit ok now its 50%. i hate the weather sometimes

I'd rather tough out the rain personally, since I wouldn't be able to make it on sunday if it was to be changed. : )

we actually cannot change it
as our group isn't the only one going.

Erin and I have other friends and family joining us as well.
so it is going to be Saturday.

Plus.
weather.com
says scattered thunderstorms, (precip at 30% in Sterling)
so it shouldn't be too bad..
and it's the same for Sunday so it makes no difference
the humidity is going to be a bitch tho

who knows, maybe the rain will happen later in the afternoon
or at night

you know how it goes with these sites

like i said above..
be prepared to get wet
maybe
