Winterfest Ball

Post by Ailyn » Thu Dec 07, 2017 6:51 am

The date and time for the Winterfest Ball has been announced, and I do hope that this works for the most people as possible. No set time for it to end, it will go as long as people are about. If the time needs adjusted, post here and we can if there is enough needing it pushed forward or back.

Please remember, this is a formal event, so no armour will be allowed. Weapons are not prohibited, but please, do not bring them with you if you can just as easily leave them somewhere else. Also, please remember to see the postings offering services for attire and even a secret date, as this was a nice surprise to be done for the Ball and very much welcomed for such an event. Make sure to thank Karis of Sune for the generous service she has chosen to provide. I hope all will have an enjoyable time.

Likely no for me! I imagine extended family will be doing Christmas the Saturday before per usual, which is the 23 this year! We usually leave at 10AM (an hour before this) and are not home until 10+PM.

Have fun!

I MIGHT be able to attend for an hour or so. Just depends on family and work.

This looks like quite doable for me.
Weit in der Champagne im Mittsommergrün,
dort, wo zwischen Grabkreuzen Mohnblumen blühn,
da flüstern die Gräser und wiegen sich leicht
im Wind, der sanft über das Gräberfeld streicht.

Unfortunately I will not be able to attend. Work is kicking my butt this year.

Hmm, well, would this time work better for those unable and those able to on Saturday? Again, please, post here if you can, because I really do want to make it so that as many as possible can attend :)

So far it is 4 for Saturday and only 1 has confirmed fully that Thursday is doable. If you are even thinking of attending, please post which one. It does not have to be which character, just that the player is wanting to so I know how many to think for and figure which day out sooner rather than later.

I can only make Saturday if it is later in the day. I won't get off work until 2.

I don't think I will be able to make either of these. I hope everyone has fun at the ball!!

The 23rd is way too close to the holiday for this to be comfortable for me. Christmas is way too busy with family and all.
What are you talking about? What, that guy?
That was like that when I got here.

The holidays are a bit hectic overall. I work Monday-Friday in the afternoons and evenings and won't be able to attend a weekday time. My schedule isn't solidly unscrewed with until the new year.

But, I am excited and will attend if I can with the final decided on time.
My pain is constant and sharp, and I do not hope for a better world for anyone. In fact, I want my pain to be inflicted on others. I want no one to escape.

Okay, the schedule has changed three times on me for work. Don't count on me being able to make it to either day, just be pleasantly surprised if I do :)

Alright, so due to the consensus, the Ball will be held on the 2nd time posted, on Thursday. So one week from today for those that need to make preparations.

What I did get to attend and see was fun! Sorry I couldn't be there for the whole thing, stupid comcast issues.
