Sir Burke, I must take great exception to that last statement of yours. 
As you should know full well, my husband, Lord Haldane Sparhawke, was 
one of the *original* members of Mooneschadowe that went to the war. He 
is still active & still in Mooneschadowe!

While Master Tarl has been in the SCA a long time, he is not one of the 
founding members of Mooneschadowe

H.L. Estrill Swet

started in Fall '80, only one year after the group got going.
Currently in second or third place in the category of "longest 
continuous time in the SCA in Mooneschadoweshire"
