Maryland Renaissance Festival
It's a bit early to be planning, but I've heard mention before of an interest in a middle-of-the-east-coast meet-up at the Maryland RenFest. http://www.rennfest.com/
Would anybody be interested? I propose October 17th, as that is when I am planning to go already. Scottish weekend! Plus, it will be cool enough not to knock us all unconscious as apparently happened at the meet-up at the Sterling RenFest.
