21st February 2015 - LARP Awareness - Day One

Thought for the day: "Blessed are the weird people: poets, misfits, writers, mystics, painters, troubadours, for they teach us to see the world through different eyes"

So a short note in the blog today as I am away in a hotel in Leicestershire for the LARP AWARDS and LARP Awareness Day ....

Got here early to be able to set up the new stand. Crimson in Colour, with the traditional wooden backing and plenty of ivy greenery and a big Telly for the display of Days Gone By videos.

The Drunken Monk Teddies in place, and they went down well. Had to put the Drunken Monk Teddies save Christmas on a few times for people as they went past...

But everyone seemed to welcome the return of the Crimson Moon in my hands, which was very gratifying.

Seedling Productions was set up in the other half of the floor  but no mention of the Crimson Moon on their stall and a refusal to speak to me meant that there were no difficult conversations.

So - a successful day and some new possible opportunities with joined up working with the Stagger Inn. We have lost the Glastonbury Medieval Fayre and the Early Medieval Alliance at Caldicot, but as the Stagger Inn are currently short of a large tent it looks as though we may be able to hire our tent out ot them in the short term, and do some work in the Stagger Inn - and maybe seel a few country wines...  We shall negotiate, but it is nice to be working alongside the competition - that is the way it shoudl be.

So, the day went well and we secured the Vale as a double bar option. that will cause us some additional problems nearer the time - when we decide what to do about how much beer we open with two bars - it is likely to cause  greater wastage - but we shall see how things pan out.

But after day one live - We have secured four CP events, four double bars for the Vale, a possible Bosworth and Glastonbury association, a Pirate Fest, and LARP AID ... and a possible wedding for later in the year.

Not a bad start to the day ......

Pity the prices are so expensive in the hotel  - but may as well have a pint to celebrate...
