Whether you manage to get yourself in shape to fight in Crown or not,  
I would love to just see you make more events and local happenings. I  
miss seeing you and your lady at events.

If the implication is that only those that have fought in or will  
fight in Crown Tourny should have a say in this matter, I am deeply  
disappointed. This affects everyone in our Society and everyone should  
have their say.

And along those lines, folks might be interested in this article in  
the SCA-SOCIOLOGY section of the Florilegium. And it would be a good  
read for other situations than just this current spat.
