Rowany Festival 2010

April 17, 2010 at 9:44 pm Leave a comment

Okewaite was at last year’s Rowany Festival, but really it was Rhys and Allison and friends.  This year we were really a new group in Lochac, and more than that an interesting and diverse campsite, still with some wonderful friends not resident in Goulburn.

A big difference this year was that we did all the cooking over the campfire, with some fabulous new equipment.  See the Cockatrice Farm website for a detailed discussion on our dining.

Some highlights of the event:

  • Tig was made a Mistress of the Laurel, the premier award for arts and sciences
  • Will was granted an Award of Arms, so now Lord Will
  • New fighter Kori managed to slay the king in one of the battles
  • New archer Shaun shot Ulric, (“wicked”) head of the famed House Drakkar, with his first shot
  • New archer Alys scored a beauty on one of the Descartes knights
  • Cristoval and Alys had a fine new tent
  • Merewyn proved herself adept at setting things on fire, in a good way
  • Maud sang in the tavern (en francais)
  • Rose (Pinkerbell) was the best-dressed waterbearer in the kingdom, under the watchful eye of Astrid
  • Helen managed to get to more A&S classes than anyone else, while still being about the most helpful around the campsite
  • The young lads got up to some laddish behaviour, but redeemed themselves lugging water for the fighters
  • Jochen wore rabbit ears in combat, in what turned out to be wabbit season.

Here’s some fabulous photos taken by Merewyn and Rose.
