    Well, since nobody decided to write about the Faire, I'll share some photogaphs I took of the evening. I can't tell you all the winners, but they will be recognized in the Award Hall (at some point.)

    The shard-goers of the evening gathered at Skara Brae Fairegrounds. I ran through the Moongate that appeared so fast, to be greeting by an awaiting pair, Tanda and Martyna Zumir. First a cupid appeared, followed by two snow angels, who were our hosts for the evening.

    First Celes and I visitted the kissing booth. We thought we'd give the fairy a smooch, over the awkwardly posed man starring at us from behind the other booth. Then we visitted the fortune teller, in which Celes did not like the answer it gave.

    As everybody visitted the cupid for this years Valentine's gift, the rest lined up for the Naked Archery Contest! Can you believe people actually formed a single file line and waited?!!

    I completely agree! I can tell you that Lady Sweet Rapture was the first to get a perfect score! Lady Flame was close, however the snow angels made her reshoot, and she did not get as high of a score.. But great job Flame :)

    Hearts Division was for folks with under 100.0 skill. Diamond Division was for players with 100.0 - 120.0 skill in Archery. I couldn't help but try and distract Celes while she shot.

    Following the Naked Archery contest, the Mages of the bunch ran down the road south for a Teddy Bear Summoning contest!! Lots showed up, we had four pens, one person per pen. You had 3 minutes to use the Summon Creature spell to summon as many bears as you could. A snow angel tried to psych me out, probably knew I only had very little magery, but I got him alright! Summoning a bear my first try! And then only like two more.. hah.

    Some familiar faces of the evening included....

    I had a really great time, and would like to thank all who participated and everyone who made this event possible. Great job!

    What are some of your memories of the evening?

    John, Knight of Newcastle and Minoc, did not participate in any of the events but always likes to be out and about with his wife, Tanda, and his sister-in-law, and enjoyed watching the events. Those who did participate surely appeared to enjoy themselves.
