My hostesses reminded me by example that I have been remiss in sharing this schedule. For those not familiar with the Grand Tour, Duchess Caer Firnas, Fogwoman Gray Volare, founded this 'progressive party' after changes on the grid which severely affected overall morale, or as she is quoted, 'To bring all nations and groups together to demonstrate why we stay and what is important.' Since then, there have been several successful iterations, two of which also supported Relay For Life. This is the second which has been held around St. Valentine's Day, as most have recovered from the excesses of the winter holiday season but still have a celebratory spirit.
This Grand Tour is organised by and hosted by Lady Breezy Carver (Frau Fabre), and Sultana Rose Springvale.
There will be photographs of the events shared later.
