    As all of you saw, we didn't actually get any bids this year for Fall Ball 2019 :( Myself, my boss the Director of Events, the Amyrlin, Keeper, and Shatayan got together on October 13th to decide what to do and to brainstorm...and I'm actually really excited about it :D

    First, we took a look at the map of events : MAP of TARVALON.NET EVENTS

    It was noticed that we had a place in the USA where we hadn't been in quite some time! That's right, I'm looking at you Texas!

    So that's where we'll be headed in the fall of 2019 :joy :joy Now there is still a big decision to be made, and it'll be up to all of you to choose in early 2019. Keeping in mind that Fall Ball is a tourist type of event where we go out and see the city during the day on Saturday, we had a couple of ideas.

    1. South Texas - between the Alamo, Riverwalk, and Tower of the Americas in San Antonio or all that is in Austin, there is definitely plenty to do along with great food, easy transportation, and affordable hotel rooms :D
    2. Texas Ren Faire - There's tons to do, and a lot of tower people nearby. We had so much fun at these years ago with renting rooms and the towns nearby have specials etc.

    So that's what we're gonna do! Early next year, be on the lookout in the Fall Ball forum for a poll to choose between south Texas, or the Ren Faire near Houston, so that we can get arrangements locked down and registration opening around May as per usual. Either location will make for a fantastic weekend though, so definitely think about joining us in the Lone Star State next October or November!
