Greetings from Jovian,

Scott White (aka Gnith) wrote the following...

As a member of "the media" (I'm currently an internet journalist and 
worked as a reporter, editor and entertainment critic in the past), 
often found the SCA's attitude toward media attention to be either 
reactionary or sadly ill-informed -- especially when media relations 
is the
most overlooked component of successful new-member recruitment.

OK, you've pointed out a valid problem. Now how about a solution? 
You're a journalist, why don't you get feedback from other SCAdians 
journalists, as well as mundane journalists, and put together a media 
packet for shires or baronies to use.

Include story ideas (groups preparing for war, an A & S college, a 
dance event, etc), guidelines for how to treat reporters, how to 
educate your group so that we don't end up with those easily twisted 
offhand remarks, etc.

I for one would love to have such a packet for Tempio. If we are 
serious about membership then we need to have as many tools as 

For What It's Worth,
