Chirurgeons Provide Great Service at Rowany Festival

Lady Lowry ferch Gwynwynwyn ap Llewelyn, Kingdom Chirurgeon for Lochac, reports on the efforts of the Chirurgeons at the recent Rowany Festival.

Lady Lowry writes:

Greetings All,

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.

  • Lord Peter of St John (CIC),
  • Baron Master Hrothgar Breaksword,
  • Lady Rachel the Untame,
  • Lord Patri de Buck,
  • Lady Isabella de Bordeaux
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.
