Comments and Impressions:

  • Almedha and I would like to say thank you again to everyone that that lent a hand at Kris Kinder. It was so rewarding to hear from both merchants and attendees how great the event was, and how much fun was had by all!

> > Thank You to everyone that showed up early and busted their humps to get all the merchants unloaded and set up. Many of the merchants expressed their gratitude directly how much they appreciate that help. > > And Thank You again to the Canton of Astor Tor, and everyone that stayed for cleanup. We left that site in great condition and it was really nice to get out of there by 8:00 PM so we all still had some socializing time left in the evening. > > The site manager (Curtis) told me that that the inn was a huge success again this year. They plan to use the funds from the inn to put on a Christmas/Employee appreciation party for all the faculty and staff at the school. > > Kris Kinder is a fantastic event, it's our own Calontir Christmas party, and we feel very lucky that we get to host it here in Forgotten Sea. - Gustav Jameson >

  • Kris Kinder was a wonderful event. It was the first time in many years my household sisters and I were able to attend this event which is very close to our hearts. Our thanks to everyone who planned and worked so long and hard to prepare a wonderful event for everyone in attendance. Calontir is peopled by generous, wonderful folks. It is a joy to be part of it again. Ly. Kathryn of Faire Haven, Chatelaine, House of Kinross.
  • Had a wonderful time, great event. The lunch the school put on was good. - Sally Heald


  • Nicely run event, good atmosphere and kick ass help. Great day. Thank you, we enjoyed ourselves. Rorik and MaelBridgit.
  • I thought the unload crew was a stroke of brilliance. It not only helped merchants get unloaded quickly so we could get the market put together in time, but it also *cleared the loading area* very timely so we could get more vehicles in.

> 'Twas a master stroke - Bravo to the originator of this idea and many thanks from a grateful merchant! -Trevor Clemons

  • I wish to thank Calontir for their great generosity in their donations of items for the fundraiser as well as buying the goodies that will go towards the teens at Lilies. They collected $350 (not including the match money from Rhodri)!!! Thanks to the teens that worked on this, I would like them to get me their names & contact info. And of course a BIG THANKS to Auntie Alvira (Beth Trevor) and Bella (Ariana Pauley) for heading this up! - Mistress Roselyn of Aberdeen
  • I just want to tell the Kingdom that I had a wonderful time at Kris Kinder. I am thankful that everyone was so warm and welcome in helping me out as I still grasping at all the awesome that is the SCA. I want to take this time to thank everyone that has helped me by answering my million of questions. I really want to thank Josefina DelTorre, first for being awesome. Two, for answering my endless question of garb construction. Thirdly, for sharing your home, your passions of proper period work and your friends so that I didn't wander Kris Kinder lost and completely Newbie Naked. - Izabellsa
