This is exactly what I was speaking of last night when I said that implementation
of *any* type of mentoring program would be difficult. We all start out with the
"best of intentions" but either lose interest, or run out of patience (in some cases).
We tend to forget that playing in the SCA can be an expensive hobby. And to
take on a second person is in some cases, not a doable thing. Maybe an alter-
native would be a summer program, or a school-year only program? Just thinking
out loud! Anyone else want to help us save the world?!
