Raptor War autocrat here...
While we did not think that the fire would impact the
event at all, the fire had different plans. Around
4:30 this afternoon, we had one of the fire marshalls
come by to give us some news about the fire. It was
about 6 miles away from the site, as the crow files
and, at that time, was pretty much out of control.
Because there was not much wind, they were not doing a
manditory evacuation of the area...yet. However, the
weather forecasts for the area indicated some fairly
unpredictable wind changes coming, so an evacuation
might be called for at any time.
After a discussion with their excellencies of Arn
Hold, we determined that we'd rather be safe than have
a mad scramble in the middle of the night, so we
closed the event down at around 5PM and everyone began
to pack up.
I have to say that I was truly impressed by the way
everyone jumped in to help get things gathered and
loaded in such a short amount of time. I want to
thank everyone that helped take down and load the
baronial pavilions, showers, etc. All in all, the
event went well, except for the rushed ending ;-)
In Friendship and Service,
