what can I say, the event annoucement pushed hot buttons in me, I am just
bringing the matter up in an effort to achieve clarity.

Dunno, sca policy tends to be fairly grass roots and go from the ground up,
I would like for that policy to include explicitly some room for families
may not fit into the RNC's vision of America.

Hay, if a third of the ppl in bryn gwlad recognize me I am doing pretty good,
and I AM trying to become more involved but I have been busy lately.

All I did was ask for clarification of what thier definition of a family
is, and then expressed my extreme displeasure with that definition. I am
NOT going, but
then it is not much of a sacrafice, I hadn't really planned on going. However
they ARE a part of a group I participate in and I DO disagree with the
sentiment they have presented. I hardly think it is out of line to question
them on that.
