From Aliskye Rosel:

Scribal and Heraldic Playday is over! Woo!

I want to thank everyone who showed up today and everyone who bought raffle tickets and donated things to the raffle.

I want to thank all the fabulous teachers: Flavia, Arite, Paul, Astrid, Ronan, Valeria, Cormac, Thomas, Eowyn, and Eirikr.

I want to thank John and Flavia for bringing Ancient Pigments to sell. Such awesome stuff!

I especially want to thank Jon Thomme for getting there early with direction signs and him, Emma and Arianna for all being early and helping with set-up.

I really want to thank Richenda for handling gate and selling all the raffle tickets.

And last but certainly not least I want to thank Paul for co-stewarding, wrangling all the Heraldic classes, doing the event announcement and all the gentle reminders of things that needed doing.

Yay. *Thud!*
