I wanted to formally thank the Chirurgeons who assisted at Festival. Yes, St John's were on duty from 9 to 5, but the other 16 hours of the day (or rather, night) were manned by members of the chirurgeonate.
all gave up some of their tavern/socialising -- and sleep -- time to be on Night Duty. They have each received a Copper Leech Favour as a token of thanks, which comes nowwhere near what they deserve.

For those who like statistics: there were a total of 72 visits to the Chirurgeonate (including treatments by St Johns). 35 of these were fighting related injuries, including requests for bandaids for armour bite, ice for bruising, a couple of slight sprains, etc. 15 visits were requests for sunscreen. 5 of the treatments were for previous conditions (previous to Festival that is), and only 2 visits were from Minors - both requesting bandaids. Only 4 of the visits were more serious: 3 asthma related problems and one foreign body in an eye which required hospital treatment.
I'm not sure what the total number of attendees at Festival was, but I would estimate close to 1000 (does anyone know?). So a very loud HUZZAH to all of you for playing/camping safely.
