I'm just curious - and I don't mean this as a challenge - but what do you
find offensive about TRF asking the SCA to leave? Is the manner in which
they did it, or just the fact that they kicked us out (so to speak)?

I still admit that I believe that I find TRF's treatment of the SCA was
offensive. I currently do not live in Texas/Oklahoma although I am a
home-grown Ansteorran and one of the founding members of the Barony of
Bonwicke, when and if I move back TRF is already crossed off of my list of
things to go to...
