It may not be my place to do a public thank you, but the event yesterday
was so much fun and there were so many people who made it that way, that I
can't help but use this forum to send a big thank you to everyone who made
the Gold Chain Tourney such a fun day yesterday in Stormsport.
First - to the Chivalry. A Gold Chain Tournament without Chivalry would not
be nearly as special, and the turn out was wonderful. However, as often
happens with these sorts of things, there were not as many Chivalry as there
were challengers, so this left a lot of work for those who did make the
trip. Knight after Knight (from at least three Kingdoms) accepted challenge
after challenge until they were exhausted. The words from the participants
were those of gratitude not only for the chance to fight, but also for the
instruction that was given.
Second - to the participants. Again, the turn out was large, but not only
in numbers. The fighters who came were enthusiastic and excited, and they
shared that with those who came out to watch. People took the time to wear
their best kits, make fine challenges, and provide a wonderful day of
fighting for the spectators.
Third - to the spectators. It was nice to have an event with no other
activities, and yet see the gallery full of people just watching the
fighters and making sure they had water, food and encouragement.
Lastly - to the Shire of Stormsport. Thank you for providing a field, a
format, and all day food. Even warm drinks and soup to combat the cold!
The hospitality of the Shire made for a fantastic fall day. I am not alone
in being grateful for all they did.
Thank you to all for a wonderful day.
