The Last Hurrah (until next time)

Last night saw the last event to be held in Caledon for the SLRFL. Do I hear a collective sigh of relief? I thought so. While the SLRFL was a worthy cause, 6 months of events and activities is just a bit much. I realise that it is runs this long in RL too, but I think in RL you generally don't attend 3 events per week (at least) and so it doesn't seem quite so intense. Anyhow, whining and complaning aside, the end has come and so, in true Caledonian fashion, there was a Rave!

Miss Diamanda Gustafson (known in some parts as Lady Whoop-ass) made her debut as the newest DJ on the Radio Riel team. She kept us on the floor with very funky folk music, rocking the house (or open air fair ground) for 2 hours. She did an excellent job and will be a welcome member of Radio Riel, to be sure.

Some of the revellers, getting warmed up for when Her Grace the Duchess of Loch Avie arrives so "Little Eva and the Tartans" can ride once again

Edward and I getting down and working sync of course!

The Duchess and her Doppleganger

Later in the evening, the Duchess took over the airwaves and we raved on into the night. It was noted that there seems to be a strange, clothing-eating virus that invades Caledonian raves and eats various articles of people's clothing. My Goodness!!!

Caledonian's get down and party!

It was a fantastic evening, a suitable end to a very long haul. Caledon outdid itself though and raised L$1,265,300 for the cause!!! Huzzah!!!

*Note: As of 11:18 am, SLT, Caledon's grand total was L$1,297, 328. I'd also like to extend a big thank you to all those who donated a lot of blood, sweat and tears, doing their best to come up with so many unique and fun ideas. Three cheers for the volunteers and for the generosity of Caledonians!!!!
