Stone Dog 2018 post-event thoughts. No deaths, one marriage, one sacking, everyone seems to have fun. We lost about 40% of coins, 136 people on site, 100-125 normal, above average turnout. Feast went well, sold out. If this is the last official stone dog we can close on a high note. Fighting (heavy) Octavian took over, plenty of rapier fighters, one and one and melee outside. Horse racing was fun. Pawn shop Godrick had no problems, location was of benefit. Would like to keep tasting. Beverage bar went well especially with upselling at gate,92 bought beverage bar. Wanting to push on other groups in the area. Lunch ran out of meat stew, make more!
Financials: took in $2700 total, expenses $1672.02, total profit of $852.98. Paperwork for NMS ($175) and event report needs sent in, waivers will be sent tomorrow.
Stone Dog 2019 – Let’s talk later, fall/winter rather than spring. Maybe merge with scribing and imbibing or host a winter event.
