Events Update

This is an updated list of events planned for the High Summer Gathering.

Thursday Evening: La Dolce Vita (new event)

Rotini Yellow Red Green
Enjoy life Italian style at dinner on Thursday.

Our own chef Russetti Russello will be creating una Pasta Magnifica! Also on the menu, Ensalata Caprese and Zucchini Parmigiana.

So loosen your skirts and get ready to celebrate La Dolce Vita!

PS - Does anybody know how to make Tiramisu?

Friday or Saturday Afternoon (TBD): Cornholio (new event)

Straw man (or lady^) - geograph.org.uk - 676887
We will be eRecting a Cornholio effigy / figure / wicker man at the firepit, on either Friday or Saturday afternoon (date to be determined).

Shimmer, in his own inimitable style, will be leading us in the Cornholio ritual.

If we make a big bustin' WANG for Cornholio, Faeries can tie ribbons or snippets of paper (or even origami cranes!) around the WANG for their wishes for a happy Harvest.

And Cornholio will preside over the Gathering until his untimely demise on Sunday!

Friday Evening: Su(e) She Japanese Dinner (new event)

Vegetarian Maki Sushi at Suzuran Japan Foods TradingAfter much negotiation and at great expense, we have been able, nay blessed, to obtain the services of world-renowned Master Chef Herr Doktor Chip von Landia himself!

Chef Doktor von Landia will be preparing his signature dish, Su(e) She, as well as tempura and miso soup.

Su(e)-chefs are still required, and as an incentive, will be privy to his patented techniques for creating Su(e) She!

Friday Night: World Contact Day Celebration (update)

Rumours of an alien invasion have been greatly exaggerated! Oh the aliens are coming, that part is true.

But they come in peace, as we beseeched them, knowing only a landing could teach us. Oh they've given us a sign, given us a sign, that we've reached them.

Not to worry, representatives from StarFleet and the United Federation of Planets will be on hand in the Departure Lounge to handle the first contact. So bring your spaciest outfit, your alien finery, glow sticks, dancing shoes and diamonds.

Now close your eyes, and concentrate, together that's the way, to send the message: we declare World Contact Day!

Saturday 9 am - 1 pm: Amber Fox Meets Farmers Market (new event)

By special invitation, several of our number will be performing at the local Farmers Market on Saturday Morning.

Chip will be crooning and blowing as only he can, with special guest vocals from Dragon, the song stylings of ShyAnne and the multi-garbed Ryan on keyboard.

So don your finest and come out to support our friends in what promises to be a noteworthy performance.

Saturday Night: Know Talent Show (update)

Saturday night we will enjoy the many talents the Fae folk bring to the Know Talent Show. Can you sing, dance, recite a poem or play an instrument? Or do you have a flair for performance art? If so, we would love to have you join us on stage!

A bit shy but want to try? Talk to the show's organizers and they will be sure to find a suitable role for you.

More of a watcher than a performer? An appreciative audience is the other essential ingredient for this ever-popular event!

And speaking of the Know Talent Show, rumour has it that the show at the Thanksgiving Gathering will be a show to outshine all other shows. And at High Summer, those who attend the Know Talent Show will be the first to see a sneak preview of the autumn Megashow!

Sunday Afternoon: High Tea

Picture yourself in a warm forest glade, with colourful silks hanging there in the trees. A cocktail, some music, some dancing or croquet; the sun licks the glittering gown that you wear.

For many, High Tea is the highlight of High Summer. Don't dream it, be it, at High Tea.

Sunday at Dusk: Bannock & Bonfire (new event)

Wicker Man Saratoga Springs '07 Sunday before dusk we will gather at the fire pit to bid a fond adieu to Cornholio. Dragon will be baking bannock in the traditional Scottish style, and we will use this in a ritual blessing of the Land.

Then comes dusk, and with it, the time for immolation. Bye bye Cornholio! Time to toast bannock.
