Kind of an offshoot of the "Unusual Dates" Thread from last week....
The lady I am currently seeing (Patricia) and I will be attending a medieval recreation event in Manchester, NH next Saturday. This is a fairly large event (400-500) people put on by a group that I've been part of for close to two decades and where I am very well known. She has never been to one of these events, and other than me will not likely know even a single person there. Patricia is very excited to be going with me. She is even excited about getting to dress up in period costume for the day (I've arranged for someone from our local group to have properly sized garb available for her once we get on-site Saturday morning and to be there to help her get dressed if necessary).
My concern is that taking her into this completely new world where she doesn't know anyone other than me, and only vaguely understands the rules and customs has the potential to be a total disaster. She and I have discussed most of the really important rules and customs already (and I'm sure we will again). She has spent a bunch of time checking the group out online as well. I'm just wondering if there are some other things that I can do in order to mitigate the potential for this turning from what I think could be a really fun day into a total disaster of epic proportions.
Any SERIOUS and CONSTRUCTIVE advice would be greatly appreciated.
