I have to admit, I sense no dismissal or malice in this.

Thanks Finnican for your reply and I want to give it the time it deserves
with careful reading -- I don't have that time right now this morning.  But
I do want to address the possible misunderstanding.   I did not mean to
imply any malice in the absence of a performance competition.  The expressed
reason last year (GW XIV) was scheduling of the Tennis Court/Bede Hall.  It
is true that as Gulf Wars increases in popularity, more groups vie for
venues but it would have been nice to have the opportunity to find
someplace.  And please understand that the separate competition and war
point issues are separate issues.  We *can* participate in the war point --
along side our static and research competitors.  And there is much to
commend that!
