    So, here's an idea that stateless and I have talked about very briefly:
    Is anyone interested in planning a group trip to the 27th Annual Maryland Renaissance Festival this year? ?[face_plain]
    The Festival runs every weekend starting August 23rd and running through October 19th. For a more complete list of the dates, check out the Festival's Official Website. :cool:
    The first suggestion as to a possible weekend to go comes from stateless. She mentioned September 20th or 21st as a good weekend to go... that's during Ren Fest's Pirate Invasion! :D
    If anyone else agrees with those dates, please say so here and post your preferred day out of the 2. :cool:
    If you have a preference for a different day, post that here as well. :)

    UPDATED 8/17/03: So, here's links for all the important Ren Fest info.
    Driving Directions, Dates, & Times
    Ticket Prices
    Special Event Days

    Oh I have to go on Pirate weekend. Hehehehe. Other notable weekends are scottish weekend and Oktoberfest. We do have to keep in mind that we are also planning our picnic in Sept. (tentatively the 13th, I think...). And let's not forget Busch Gardens, but I think that might be October (when they have the cool Halloween stuff).

    But I digress. Admission is $16. It's tons of fun, if you've never been. I don't think I've gone for the past two years and I've been sad about that. Must go this year!

    David, I hope you can make it to SOMETHING. We haven't seen you in ages!

    I just realized that Heather and I might make pirate costumes for Dragon*Con. That means I can even dress up for the ren fest! Wooooo!

    Man, I am a nerd.

    So, I make that 4 votes so far for Pirate Weekend. :cool:
    Me, I'm not too particular...
    I just want to go at least once this year. Need to buy something from one of the dealers there, something that'll complete the sorceror's outfit I hope to put together in time for Ren Fest! :D

    Aaarr!! I always go a few times a year. And pirate weekend is a must. Scottish weekend would be more fun if I ever saw cute boys in kilts, but I never do.

    Christa and I always enjoy the Ren Fest! Keep us in the loop, please. No preference on the weekend, although pirates do seem intriguing.

    I usually go at least once with Eugenia, and I'm voting for Pirates this year. Arr. Because it's true, there are never any cute boys in kilts on Scottish weekend. :(

    Well, everyone at the meeting seemed keen on Sept. 20 to go. So, I would say Sept. 20 it is!

    Yay pirates!!

    "Because it's true, there are never any cute boys in kilts on Scottish weekend."

    That's because Malkie didn't go. :D

    One more vote for Pirate Weekend!

    Okay, so, I'd say it's virtually unanimous:
    Pirate Weekend it is! :D
    That is, unless any of the club's officers disagree. ;)
    So, is Saturday the 20th agreed upon?
    Is there anyone who'd rather go on Sunday the 21st?
    Me, I'm good either way. I just need to know what day to take off from work. :)

    Those of us that were at the meeting agreed that Saturday would be better. So I would say that Saturday the 20th is a good bet to take off of work.
