What you say about drawing new members is very true, *however*, I'd much
rather do it as a demo in the park or at a school.  I have a real problem
with helping people like George just get richer at our expense--granted, we
do get money for our groups, but...  Not to mention the fact that Ren Fairs,
at least the Texas one often get people off to a questionable start
regarding accuracy, authenticity, etc. as concerns the SCA.  Jes' call me
picky ;^>
