Well said, Elaine! I know in my capacity as Mighty Mohican Mama Marcia, I, too, have been very enthusiastic about the Mohican Raffle and the Eric Schweig Mask Raffle. It's hard not to be exuberant about these fun events, but I agree with you entirely that they are NOT the focus of the entire Gathering, by any means. The MOST fun of all will be to see everyone again, and meet the many new folks who are coming. Follow that with the fact that we will be together in MOHICANLAND, and you have the REAL joy of the whole thing!
My daily posts urging purchase of the mask raffle tickets have been mainly aimed at those who were planning to buy them and just haven't gotten around to sending the $$ yet. Some of us are really good at stuff like that...namely MMMMe!! I always have the best of intentions & then manage to wait till the very last minute. I didn't (and don't) want to see anyone who wishes to participate in the raffle for Eric's Mask to wait too long to buy the tickets. But I certainly realize that not everyone will want to take part in that particular event, and please don't think that I or anyone else will be disappointed if that is your choice. For whatever reason.
I promise on a stack of Leatherstocking Tales that you will NOT be considered Second Class Gatherers!!! ;o) Both raffles are intended to be bonus events to enrich the whole experience for those who can, and wish to, participate! Please forgive your MMMM if she has been SEW excited as to give anyone any other impression!
Can't wait to see you ALL a week from Thursday or Friday, for some late arrivals! What a treat this is going to be!
