SHIRE OF DRAGOUN’S WEAL, GLEANN ABHANN, GULF WARS – In the face of an aging populace, Gulf Wars event stewards have adjusted the hours of the traditional “Midnight Madness” sale to end at 10 p.m. on Wednesday.
“Merchants have been telling us for a couple of years now that their foot traffic really drops off after about 9:30 p.m., even on Wednesday,” said Mistress Sarah Cook, the Gulf Wars Merchant Coordinator. “The consensus was this year that even the merchants would rather have the foot traffic earlier and get to bed at a reasonable hour.”
Duchess Emmeline of Gleann Abhann agreed. “We’re not the party people we once were,” she told us. “My lord and I really prefer our nightly routine of being in bed by about 10:00. I’ll read while he watches part of A Lion in Winter on his phone and we’re asleep by 10:30.”
