CANCELED - TriumphFest - June 23 - 25th, 2017 - Kennett Square, PA

Post by Wendy » Sun Apr 09, 2017 4:30 pm

SORRY - We've had to cancel. We'd like to try again - maybe in the fall.

We have had enough int[/color]erest to hold a Triumph weekend on June 23 - 25th in Kennett Square, PA. Call it Triumph Training... or From Praxis to Triumph... or Triumph in the Woods or... TRIUMPHFEST!

WHEN: 7pm, Friday, 6/23/17- 5pm, Sunday, 6/25/17
WHERE: The House in the Woods, 140 Thompson Rd., Kennett Square, PA 19348
RSVP: by 6/18/17 to wendymyers0608@gmail.com. We need to know for table set-up, etc.

GAMING:
We will be focusing on doubles, but will also be doing singles. Bring your own armies - triples for those wanting to practice doubles. Bring your own dice and measuring sticks. If you have playmats, bring them, too. Bring a sense of humor and fun.

THINGS TO KNOW:
:arrow: HOUSING: We can host two in bedrooms (one on a single, one on a folding cot. Caveat: The bath Jack and Jill's with our 23 year old son's bath.) We can also host three on couches - two in the Great Room, one in the Living Room/Library/Conservatory. These are first come/first serve. Otherwise: http://historickennettsquare.com/lodging/. All four listings are 5 - 10 minutes from our house and have good reputations.
:arrow: COST: No fee to attend. Bring your own drink and food and/or money to buck-up for take-out or delivery.
:arrow: FOOD/DRINK: See above.
:arrow: OTHER: Have family that wants a weekend away? We are 10 minutes from the beautiful Longwood Gardens and 15 min. from Winterthur and the Brandywine Museum. We have a fabulous Brandywine Valley wine trail and some incredible micro-breweries. Downtown Kennett Square (the Mushroom Capital of the World) boasts world-renown restaurants and some great boutique shopping. I also can recommend a great outfitter for those who want to kayak the Brandwine River.

QUESTIONS?: Email Tim at kdoenitz1939@gmail.com or Wendy at wendymyers0608@gmail.com

Did I forget anything? Let me know, please.

See you soon!
Tim and Wendy

TriumphFest is less than a month away. We've had two people confirm, which is enough to do doubles, but given that John's armies are very close to ours (Marian Roman and Gauls/Early Germans), more variety is definitely needed. We'd love to have more attend, even if it's just for part of the day on Saturday. We're within two-ish hours of DC, Baltimore, and Harrisburg, and within an hour of Philly and Lancaster. Just let us know what works best for you!

Details are in the first post in the thread. If you have any questions, just email!

Thanks!

I wish I could join you, but unfortunately that weekend will not work for me. Will be at a family wedding and all of the events scheduled around that.

Sure! It's a single bed and Jack and Jill's with my 23 year old son's bathroom. We'll be sure it's clean. :)

For others: That's the only room we have with a bed, since my daughter is now back from college. We still have a cot and three couches of varying levels of comfort!

Salutations, gentlefolk,

Unfortunately, my plans have fallen thru, and I cannot make it to Kennett Square that weekend. Many apologies and regrets.

Yours, John Desmond
