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.
