More about the Meridian tourney

I just received this from a friend of ours in Meridies. I thought people might like to read it:

Just wanted to let everyone know that there was an overwhelming response to the orange ribbons I brought to Meridian Grand Tourney; I didn’t take any pictures, but all the fighters and many of the populace proudly wore theirs to show support for Kolfinna.

One of the tournaments held during the day was sponsored by the Order of the Chalice; each entrant pays $20 and the person who wins the tourney has the prize money (plus additional monies raised by the simultaneous fundraiser luncheon) donated in his or her name to a women’s and children’s shelter in their hometown. The winner, Duke Ailgheanan mac Sithigh, asked that the prize (totalling $1600) be donated to a shelter in the San Diego area in Kolfinna’s name.

Thought that might brighten everyone’s day. Give Kitty hugs from all her Meridian friends the next time you see her.

    Yes, there were many sniffling women after his grace’s speech. It was heartfelt, and incredibly touching.

    People in the known world ROCK! —Okay, there are simply people in this world who rock!

    It is amazing to think of the wide-spread support, love, and energy being sent Kitty’s way from all over the world. It is a true testament to her awesome character.

    Get well soon Kitty!

    I will have bright orange Kitty Recovery Quilt squares in the Sewing Tent at the Great Western War Arts Area. Come add your good wishes to it! Right after GWW, some of us will put the quilt together.

    Love the idea of fund-raising to help others, in Kitty’s name! Great positive energy! — Flavia Beatrice Carmigniani
