Being flexible is certainly a good thing, and to be honest, I wish more
people were *able* to shrug off these petty annoyances.

Well, to be honest, the discussion that prompted my first note began as
a discussion about past events that the people involved had hosted, and
that more than once, This Knight or That Duke had criticized the format
of the various tourney's.  As a rule, since our annual event is of a 
nonstandard nature, we've heard all manner of whining and bitching every
year, and so, some of us have become a trifle jaded :)  However, these
things still must be discussed.
