The only reason it suprised me is Eric knows these guys. He's worked with some of them before. Actually, I'm just still a little in shock from the way the whole situation was handled.

You know this has got to be the sadest thing I have yet to hear... And all the while I am around Faire working... its sad when you hear Patrons saying that Faire just isn't what it used to be... and that they won't be comming back next year... I may still be young in guild but its really sad when patrons are bashing the faire... what happened to all the fun at faire... all it is becoming is just another job to be there anymore... and I dont see anyone steping up to the plate to change things... Sounds to me like we are letting REC just kill our Faire... And I say we change that...

Half of the solution is knowing the problem.  I nominate Hawkin to buy the Faire from the REC and reboot it properly.  Who's with me?

No, just buy/take over REC, Bristol might need some rescuing from them too

The GM of So. Cal, Andrew Elkins, should be put in charge of all their US owned Faires.  He's amazing and totally into it.

Actually, it's R.E.P. now.

There was a bunch of financial mumbo jumbo behind the name change, but I don't remember what it was. Don't really want to remember either. I think thats why I don't. heh.

Whats really sad is this past season I met one of the owners. She was the Producer for R.E.P. and she came up to me and Harry while we were in character as the Queen's Guards and introduced herself. She told us she was really happy with the job we were doing and with the faire as a whole, which makes me wonder even more about the stuff  thats going on now.

Yeah, we were kind of busy at the time and I was in the wrong mindset too. In character and all. :(

Ah man, they finally post up the audition dates and such on the website, but they also post that all the paid cast spots are filled. No auditions for them at all? Fuck, that sucks. That must mean all the principles are returning (Queen, Burley, Sheriff, etc.), but if I want to act at faire this season, it's going to have to be for free again. Auditions are strictly for the Journeyman and Spendpenny Cos. Also its going to be a totally improv audition.

I did find out that Ded Bob will be there for the whole run. Thats fine, Mugsy is good people and that means my neice will be around all summer too.
