There have been a couple of posts that have said what a great event KWAR was and it really was. I love Knowne World events even if I don't do the particular art, science or whatever. It's the combination of some of the best and most enthusiastic Gentles in the Knowne World in their particular field. Despite the weather, all I saw were smiles and tired people through the weekend. Seeing people from Caid, the West, An Tir, Artemesia, Gleann Abhann, Meridies, Trimaris, Calontir, the Midrealm and Northshield (those are the Kingdoms that had people that I had the pleasure of meeting) all enjoying the joy of sharing and learning was fabulous.

One thing I haven't seen was a congratulations for, now, Don Guillaume Ethos Isaac LeFort for being honoured as the newest member of the Order of the White Scarf in Northshield. It's been a long time coming and was incredibly well-deserved. In addition, though I'm sure our intrepid, quiet demure flower of Northshield will report, there was an AoA for Remy of Falcon's Keep, a Queen's Glove for someone who I forget the name of (please post if you can fill in this information), and a Tyr for Teffan Koerwent. Vivant to all!
