Fuzzy timed back to autumn some time after the Dominance Fights
The event actually began in the later afternoon, with a relay race that people had signed up for that morning. The race had been great fun, and by the time it was over, the main event was completely set up thanks to the help of some Weyrfolk that lended their hand to the event. So with the relay complete, the bonfire neared, and everyone who participated and watches was encouraged to head over toward the Dayhandler Complex, not that it was hard to see that was where the event would be.
Near the complex, but not too near of course, a large circle of stones and brick were set up, with an area in the middle dug out to help contain what would be the bonfire. Inside the circle were pieces of wood, sticks, and other kindling that would help set the fire ablaze in due time. For now it sat, for just a little longer.
The food had all been set out, the final platters just now arriving and being laid out across the table they’d moved out from the dining hall. A tent was set up over the food and drink table to keep it protected and make everything feel more official as well. Decorations were sparse, but they were also set up in a wide open area, so they didn’t have many places for decorations, not that they were needed anyway.
Opposite the food in the clearing, there was a setup with several large stone brick slabs held up by short brick legs, with coals burning underneath to make the surfaces hot. Meats were laid out across the surface to cook, and it became clear quickly this section was intended for Daywhers. It wasn’t the prettiest setup, nor the most extravagant, but Inakil had managed to get something special in for the Daywhers, since this was for them as well.
With the relay race over, it was time for the bonfire and music to begin. As the sun set, the bonfire was lit, announcing to everyone that the evening's festivities had begun and the music started for people to dance if they wished. It bore similarities to a Hatching Feast really, but with so many Daywhers around and Dayhandlers mingling with each other and others. The Daywher Social hoped to lift the spirits and camaraderie of the Dayhandlers, and to celebrate the recent Alpha fights.
