A new foundry, more casting, and Pennsic prep

This weekend, we worked hard to get ready for Pennsic and complete a few other projects.

I was working to pressure wash our tents to prepare them for being water-sealed again.

Murdaigean and Pandishar also rebuilt the forge. We also finally got our casting sand, and so they couldn't wait to try it out:

Here's the final products, so far:

Red Branch Update

So, we made it back from Gulf Wars. Since then, without at least one truck among us, it has been harder than ever to make it to events. We did make it to Highland River Melees however, where we held a Red Branch Fundraiser Lunch.

First, there were some hilarious and awkward moments buying supplies.

Then we set up for lunch. We had so many happy customers. We'll be back next year, for sure! Here's our setup.

Later, we heard that the feastcrat's volunteers had bailed, so Chase and Ceanag headed over to help out. After we got everrything put away, Murdiagean did some woad....

All in all, a productive weekend, and we couldn't be more thrilled with the new friends we met. Next up: road to Pennsic, replete with tent repairs, tabard making, and casting!
