"For those of you who missed it, Mists Investiture was one of the *best* SCA events I've been to. There really was too much fun stuff to do (classes on caligraphy and brewing, dance (with live music), bardic stuff, page school stuff, and lots of equestrian authorizations and games, and I don't know what else.) The size was just right, the weather wonderful, and the site green and full of memories. Even court was entertaining -) Thanks to their Highnesses for having such a great vision for what an event *can* be, and to all those who helped to make this vision a reality."

Genevieve [de Vendome] (who thinks the only thing the event lacked to make it perfect was an indoor venue with a wooden dance floor and flush privies -) ).
