and now, a word from our sponsor

- and yet, somehow fun.
And now a message to all fighters out there. Believe me, at the MOL table, we truly understand your frustration at rain/traffic/whatever delayed you getting to the event. Likely we've all experienced much of the same ourselves. However, and this is aimed at the masses and not anyone in particular, the rules of signing in at the MOL do not change with the weather. You must always sign-in before stepping on the field. We're always going to ask for your cards (fighter and membership.) We might have a way around you not having your cards, but you must understand that it takes twice as long to look you up and have you sign the waiver than if you come with your cards in hand. The rules of courtesy do not change, your politeness, despite the circumstances, is appreciated and some might say required. That being said, the hundreds of prepared polite and patient fighters are greatly appreciated, and we are happy to serve so that you may safely take the field, and know that the others on the field are safe as well. Yes, it is so dangerous you do have to sign a waiver, sometimes even twice.
That being said, I think the Friday night sign-in option made it a smoother morning for 50 fighters and 9 marshals, which meant there were that fewer numbers in line so we could process the other 200 gentles with greater alacrity. It also gave me a wonderfully sociable place to spend my time while on site and be a useful sort of creature. And also finish Aedan's vigil shirt. :)
Aedan's vigil and elevation was a major highlight of the event. The entire thing was well done, and I was glad to have a small part in it. I just wish I had been more eloquent when it was my time to visit. Later in the evening, back at familiar home, after whining about a few things after dinner, I remembered one of my most common pieces of advice, that is no great secret. Serve with Joy. Need to repeat that mantra myself a few more times before taking on each new task. Which is also an excellent segue into the latest quiz results:
