   Why would we mind if anyone in the Known World wanted to be a member
of our Kingdom Dance Guild? Except for a few people in bordering groups,
why would anyone want to?

   If people want to limit membership to Ansteorrans only, I don't
really mind. It's just whatever everyone wants. (It always is.)

   Now, Pug, if we meant that you had to be a paid member of the SCA, we
would explicitly say, "paid members of the SCA". Saying "in the SCA" in
no way implies "paid member".

   Perhaps both Estrill and Pug will be satisfied by this wording: "Any
Ansteorran who is interested in dance may become a member of the Guild." 

   Who is an Ansteorran? Folk in neighboring kingdoms, who play with us
instead, probably consider themselves Ansteorrans. Folk who lived in
Ansteorra for many years, but recently moved to, say, Atlantia, might
still consider themselves Ansteorrans. If you consider yourself an
Ansteorran, and are interested in dance, you can be in the Guild.
