Just to let everyone know, in case you didn't....
The Ohio Ren Fest started 8/30 and goes till 10/19. If you have not been there you definitely need to it is completely worth the trip and the cost of admission. For those who have not been, it is a festival set in the Renaissance era. There are street walkers/performers who speak with an english accent, TONS of shops all around, shows galore in which you pay NOTHING for (once you have paid to enter the fair grounds that is) I would suggest the mud show, pirate show pirat (arrr) and the joust. If you have a female significant other... there are TONS of jewelry shops to entice her with. It is guaranteed to be a fun filled day. Everyone is encouraged to but does not have to dress up. Don't worry you will not be the only one in costume if you decide to. There are pirates, roman soldiers, robin hoods, zenas, gabriels, belly dancers, elven princes and princesses galore... Oh what fun you will have!

Anyways here is a link....
http://renfestival.com/

If someone wanted to get a group of CAGers to go I am sure we could get a discounted rate, obviously the more people we can get to go the less each person would pay. I don't know the discounts for groups but in the past it has been pretty good and yes with the right number of people we can get the meal discount packages cheaper also. If you have any questions about the Ren Fest let me know, if I do not know the answer I will find out for you because I am up there every weekend except the weekend of the Fantasy Tournament (see I have my priorities in line lol! ).

How can you go up on the 5th of October if you are playing in the Fantasy Tournament?

I will not allow it. You have a solid list with what you have you just need to play more CJ.

Ogre Kingdoms gives a lot of weird matchups.

For instance, ogres will just straight up lose to a Lizardmen force with a decent number of skinks. All those little poison blowdarts just take too much of a toll.

But they can give many other armies fits. Keep playing CJ, experience only helps. Plus I don't think our Fantasy Tournament is going to be super competitive.

It's not a matter of not playing guys, it's a matter of the scheduling with me n the wife. We get one day off a week. This is the day. She wants to get her Holoween costume from up there. that's what we are doing. Anyone else have any more problems? suck it!

Why spend outragous amounts o money there when you can get better and cheaper else where?

I totally appreciate that CJ. I used to work an "off" schedule with my wife.

You really appreciate your time together and try and plan something special that you both will enjoy when in that situation.

Have a great time at the festival.

So....when is it exactly that you start to really enjoy your time with your SO. I'm at the point now where we'd much rather just be off on our own. Maybe that's because the impending nuptuals looming over our heads make us realize we're stuck with each other for at least a while.
