Here in Stargate, our populace and business meetings are held in mundanes. Folk
are encouraged to show up in garb for Sunday fighter practice, and I have noted
an increasing trend toward that. Outlying cantons, from what i have seen, tend
to follow more or less the same pattern. However, the current Stargate
Hospitaller is encouraging the populace to begin showing up at our monthly
*populace* meeting (as dis- tinct from the *business* meeting) in garb, in
order to give us more exposure (we meet in a library). Personally, I think this
is a good idea, even though it may mean I have to do my post-event laundry a
little sooner than otherwise....:)
Of course, all of this is based on personal observation and comes with the
usual disclaimer......
