    Hello everyone! Thank you so much for your patience on this, but I didn't want to give information that wasn't confirmed :D


    FALL BALL 2017

    Dates: October 13-15, 2017
    Location: Drury Inn and Suites, Grand Rapids
    Ticket Price: TBA, I have a call in with the caterer who will call me back tomorrow so we'll hopefully have a price by the end of the week. Should be between $130-150
    Registration: Will open May 15!


    As soon as I've confirmed the ticket price, I'll get the officially official thread up in the Fall Ball forum, so keep an eye out there for further details! The hotel is brand new, they put out a great afternoon drinks and food spread every day and it's within 15 minutes of downtown Grand Rapids! There are so many of you within driving distance that there are no excuses to not come down and share a fantastic weekend with us :D


    17th ANNIVERSARY PARTY 2018

    Dates: March 16-19, 2018
    Location: 1.5 hrs SE of Boise or 50 min north of Twin Falls, Idaho
    Ticket Price: Will be announced this fall
    Registration: Will open around November


    Just so you can start putting things on your calendar for next year - we're gonna stay in a quasi-castle. It used to be a college and was built almost 100 years ago. We'll be cooking for ourselves, it has a ballroom, a game room, and if we have enough people register we can also take over the East Wing in addition to the West Wing :D It has actual wings y'all! This will be our first trip to Idaho so tell your friends and get ready for an amazing party!

    Is there a reason Anni is falling over St. Patrick's day again? Kveldof and I will never make one if that's going to be the set weekend as he is in The Friendly Son's of St. Patrick and they parade on St. Patick's day (unless it falls on a Sunday and then it's the Saturday before). :/

    I don't know the technical reasons behind it, but I do know that that weekend (or close to) is a very popular one for Anni. I suspect it has something to do with availability, rates, and maybe Jordan Con.

    Yep, as Ninya said there's a lot of factors that go into finding a weekend including site availability, the fact that our anniversary is actually *in* March (well the turning into the White Tower part of the anniversary anyway) and keeping a decent buffer from Jordan Con which seems to have settled happily into the 3rd week of April. To assist with people who want to attend both as well as the commitment of our Amyrlin to attending both, it requires us to keep a buffer between the two. Since prices about 6 weeks after April tend to go way up (Memorial day or later) as well as people's availability of early summer vacation time going down, it means that we look about 6 weeks before and that lands us back in March.

    I'm sorry the dates the last couple years haven't worked for you - as I said though, it depends also on site availability so the potential is high for it moving from year to year.

    How exciting!

    Tannin and I can DEF make Anni (that's less than a day's drive), and Fall Ball looks extremely doable. :bacondance
