[Ansteorra] How to help the West

   Suppose the the populace of Black Lake chooses to be members of
Bonwicke.   I don't see any reason that Bonwicke can't schedule meetings to
take place at the times and places where the Black Lake meetings take place
now.  There can be a deputy seneschal to preside over the meetings.
    In order to have an official fighter practice they would need to have an
authorized Marshall and any warranted officer present.
    The meeting rooms can be reserved in the name of the Barony of Bonwicke
rather than the Shire of Black Lake.
    It's not a perfect solution, and I don't intend to minimize what is
happening, but there are other choices than to drive two hours, or stop
playing locally.
