    It's been a busy few days with people registering for the King's Dinner, buying cloaks, and Sponsoring the Dinner! Thank you everyone!

    Here is the updated guest list - 42 people signed up so far, capacity is 100 or 150.
    Here is the updated sponsor list - 8 so far - huge thanks!



    New idea: I am working on getting a Caricature Artist to attend the dinner for all three hours - anyone have experience with caricature artists? How fast do they draw one person? Maybe I need two if there is a lot of interest? Maybe I'll book one artist this week, and then if there is more interest, I can book another in two weeks if they are available. It's nice to take more physical things home from the event, right? Thoughts?


    For all the information, go to the King's Dinner Web Page

    Huzzah!

    I'm headed to Austin on Friday, Sep 7. I'll be at the County Line on the Lake restaurant checking out the pavilion and outdoor grounds. Lots of deco ideas! I'm going to see if they will let me hang Guild Banners on some rope around the Pavilion or outside. I bet they will. Then, people can get their heraldry banners made and bring them if they want for display at the dinner.


    This is what the outside of the pavilion area looks like. And I'm going to look for some boffor swords too through the local RenFest friends and HoBNot / HoBLotH folks.

    County Line on the Lake outdoor area behind the Pavilion. Nice! Imagine some sword dueling there, eh?

    I just met with the manager at the County Line on the Lake restaurant in Austin. Things are working out GREAT!

    • Lord British and Darkstarr will be seated at the head table flanked by 10 "Knights" on either side (the SOTACON VIPs) facing the "citizens" at the long tables. There should be plenty of opportunities for anyone to stand up to toast, challenge, and say witty things!
    • The outdoor area will be like shown in the above picture so there is plenty of room for some boffer sword fighting, if I get swords. If anyone is bringing any, let me know.
    • ALSO, I'll have a rope across the sides of the Pavilion so guilds and avatars can bring their heraldry banners, if you get them made. I can clip your banners up inside the Pavilion after you arrive, and take it down when you leave. I got the PaxLair banner made at https://www.bannersonthecheap.com/ using my SotA heraldry image - turns out well at 2 ft by 2 ft, but I had to edit the graphic for higher rez for a 4 ft by 4 ft banner.
    • I can also show videos and slide shows on a big TV in the reception room (not in the main dining pavilion). If anyone has photos or videos they want me to show, let me know.

    The event is 3 hours, so plenty of time to eat and socialize! This is a sit down, stand up, walk around type event. Go to http://www.winfieldgatherings.com/ and see the King's Dinner 2018 Austin page for all the details, including sponsorships even if you cannot make it to the event in person! Please pass the word and news to your friends!

    Huzzah!

    ANNOUNCEMENT: Bring your Heraldry Banners to the King's Dinner!

    Consider https://www.bannersonthecheap.com/ to make and deliver your banners within just a few days using your SotA Heraldry Image file! I did! (they work well for the smaller size banners; for 4 ft banners you probably need to photoshop your file to smooth things out for Higher Rez, like I did with the 4 ft PaxLair Banner show below).

    I'm bringing the PaxLair Banner 4 ft by 4 ft and will be on display at the King's Dinner! Bring more banners! They can be smaller too! 2x2, 3x3, etc.

    ALL attendees and sponsors may freely bring and display their Banner(s)! I have the rope and clips; you bring the banners when you arrive and take it when you leave the dinner! Want to send me your banners if you cannot attend? Just contact me!

    Let's see how many and which heraldry banners will fly at the Inaugural King's Dinner! Great photo ops!

    [​IMG]

    Ideas?

    I just added this! It keeps getting better for October 12, King's Dinner! Huzzah!

    [​IMG]
    Heather Joy – Famous Caricature Artist
    Heather Joy’s “About Faces” Page

    She has worked next to, trained, and learned from some of the best caricaturists in the country,
    including Steve and Gary Fasen, Buddy Rose, Glen Ferguson, Lorin Bernsen, Chris Galvin, Miguel Aguilar, Robert Sundin, J.W. Cornelius, and Teresa Farrington.

    FREE !!!

    Heather draws amazing caricatures, her 20+ years of experience is apparent as she captures in an instant the likeness and personality of each person she draws.

    Sit in the chair, about 3-5 minutes, get your face physically drawn (or your family) and have Heather Joy, Lord British, Darkstarr, and more sign it!

    What a FANTASTIC physical item to take home & frame!
    Don’t miss out!​
