    As usual, we will be attending the Ren Fair in Larkspur CO in June. The weekend we chose is June 24th through the 26th. This is not an official event and everyone is welcome to come. Some of us like to troop this at least 1 day (usually Saturday) and go in Ren gear the next day. On Saturday night we have a garrison BBQ at our campsite in the Castlerock campground ((800) 387-9396) or Castle Rock Campground please call and make reservations and tell them you are with the Orndorff's. Even if you don't want to stay you are invited to join us for the Ren Fair and / or the BBQ. What we usually do for the BBQ is you bring your own meat, drinks and a side dish to share with everyone. It is a blast and we hope to see you there.

    John has already made his reservations and is in space 78. There are several cabins, tent and electric and water sites near them. They recommend getting your reservations in early so we can all be in the same general area. Wes will probably be un-socialable like last year and be clear on the other side of the campground again. :p

    My brother lives in Colorado Springs and there is an IMAX there. If Episode 3 is still playing we could kill 2 birds with one stone! :D

    Can't do it, worked there to many years as either fire, or police. Since I grew up there, you can never be the Lord Sith in your own home town.

    Yeah but if I go up there then I have to take the family, and let everyone see AJ, and the traffic sucks big time during Renny season. Being there since the 1984 opening of the fair in Loopville (aka Larkspur) has been interesting. You know I have never paid to get in to that thing. [face_thinking] We are thinking of going back the week before the 11th of June, but need to be back for library day.

    i would love to go... i'm working on an officer costume, so we'll see.
    i've never been to the renfest in co, so i don't know much about the area. is everyone going to camp? or will there be a hotel plan?

    THAT'S not camping, Varz!

    Camping is where you are so exhausted from being pursued through the forest that you lay where you've fallen and slip into unconsciousness on the stony ground, until the freezing rain rouses you and forces you into a nearby hole under the roots of a tree for cover and YOU WISH you could see the night stars above your head, but the thing whose den you are cowering in is returning and he has other plans for you.
    There are worse things than camping in a pop-up, baby.
    There are teeth...

    Pop-up's are roughing it for me... I go "camping" in my 23ft trailer :D [face_devil]

    Won't be any camping for me this year though. :( No time; toooooo much SW to experience this summer :D

    The Troop at the Rennfaire is always a good time, so I hope you all get a chance to experience that one. :)
