    Just Wanted to Say a Huge Thank you to Everyone who made it out to the Europa Rare's Fest!
    Also a Huge Thank you to the whole fest team for working so hard to bring all our crazy ideas to life.

    I know I for one, met lots o great new people and got to catch up with some others I don't see often enough!
    That's always one o the best parts for me.
    We Also had Lots of happy winners every day for all kinds of items including nice rares, high end items of all sorts, and of course lots o gold check winners. Congrats to all our winners of all the games an events you all did great!!!

    Thanks to all you Brave folks who survived that tough horde of monsters and fought so valiantly to recover the Traveling Vendor's Lost journal he was so worried about!!
    May all your feet stay happy!
    Our Live Auctions and Silent Auction were a huge success thanks to the hard work of Nails an EA&E Crew!
    We also had some very Kind Donations to help out with Events/Game Prizes and Such so a big shout and thank you to those who kindly donated!
    Fighting Irish, Arduinna, Wanda, Drewster, Some very cool people from the land known as Toad Town
    Queen Arya and Alexander, And last but not least Morphus- the tired fella who was up way too late tryin to catch vendor placers every day.;) Your donations all helped a lot and were much appreciated by fest team and all the winners I'm sure!

    Special thx to Frodo for running some cool events as well as his lil scrabble thing people seemed to be enjoying so much. EA&E as well for a few really fun events.
    Special Thx to Wanda and Phineas for all your hard work behind the scenes all along leading up to and during the week.
    Huge thanks as well goes out to Mesanna for her amazing fest deco and for coming out to check on questionable items, to answer our questions on a number of topics and for taking time to dye masks and pumpkins even with all the riff raff crowding her out ;)
    Thanks as well to Gotan And Benu who graced us with visits as well!!! Unexpected visits like that really are
    exciting to us players and we appreciate you all so much for it.
    Thanks to all who were kind to and gave moral support to "bacon guy" when he died outside the Fest shops and lost a lot o stuff -terrible thing for anyone to have happen- but he said everyone's kindness and support really helped cushion the blow.

    Also Last but Certainly not least I wanna say thank you to Europa shard and the great folks who reside there for being helpful to visitors and being wonderful hosts for the most part :)
    There's always a few in any crowd to try an cause trouble but I'm Very pleased to say it was minimal this time around and all really seemed to get along so I consider this a successful Rares Fest and I'm stickin it in the win column.

    Hope you all enjoyed Europa Rares Fest as much as we did putting it on Thanks again--YOU ALL MAKE UO GREAT!!!!!!
    Yours Truly-Keenan of the Europa Rares Fest Team

    Very good fun (even if I had to miss the middle few days!), a lot of people enjoyed the fest and many folks were working like mad behind the scenes to make it all go so smoothly. It certainly belongs in the 'win column'.

    To our Rares Fest team, and ofc to the EA&E team I was only able to attend a few events due to work conflicts but it was extraordinarily well run and a helluva lot of fun. Awesome job and looking forward to next year.:ten:
