[Ansteorra] Question from a relative newcomer

Excellent point taken.

I will consider that when I send stuff to the list and when I build a web site for any future
Baronial Events that I may do one for.

I make an effort to see that my directions can be followed by any one with a state hwy
map. I also like to link to Mapquest or use one of their maps on my site. If it needs
further explanation closer to the site I try to acquire or make a map that others can
understand. This does take time and effort and is an easy thing to volunteer for to help
out for your group's event. Play test it with others in your area that have not been there if
you can. Also re-use any previous maps for any previously used sites if they were
helpful. Don't re-invent the wheel.

Any other suggestions are welcome.

Thanks for  the suggestions,
Bryn Gwlad Baronial Event Web Master
