I don't think many will yell back at a suggestion like that one... There
have been many feasts that I've paid for and had to leave early, there was a
shortage of servers and I opted to serve rather than eat, or just paid for
feast while having no intention of eating it. This is a donation to the
sponsoring group and helps to bolster their coffers, much as many do with
us. Without the teamwork among all of our groups, none of what we all enjoy
so much would ever be possible. Gilli, you make it possible for me to play.
And I you... I do think that a lot of this comes down to a last minute
change of plans, the phone ringing as you're walking out the door and it's
the office. Am I the only one this happens to?  I didn't think so. Or the
cursory overview of the almighty checkbook only to find that there was that
one last anomalous bill that somehow got neglected and as such precluding
our abilities to play this weekend, but you get the idea.  Alright, I've
defended your stance and defended the general populace. Now as for the
deadbeats Gilli was REALLY aiming this towards, Get on the ball people!!!!
Sorry, couldn't resist it... In rare form tonight, and in joyful service as
always I remain,  In servitiae Christe et coronae, Elrique of Bordermarch
