Nate, that's too bad you won't be able to make it out again this year. Heck, it's too bad all of you fine gentlemen can't make it out!

Darnit, Jim! I was looking forward to conversation and picking your brain.

I'll be there, and I'll bring some homebrew mead too =) This will be the first year with the new bunk houses and whatnot.

 

Also, since the last sword year was delayed a year, does that mean we go 4years to the next sword year instead of 5? to get back on the right schedule? =)
