I don't know; it's not up to just me.  What do you intend?  What does 
Duchess Willow intend?  What do Master Michael, Master Ihon, HL Gerald, HL 
Alden, HL Kat, Lord Charles, Alesone, Padraig, etc. intend?  What does our 
Premier Bard HL Elinore intend?  What do previous Premier Bards such as Ulf, 
Tiggy, (Willow, Kat,) etc. intend?  What will our next Premier Bard intend?

My personal opinion is that we are in fact starting over.  We should first 
ask what we want, and then consider if the current charter satisfies that. 
Also, even if we use the current charter, I think we need to re-write it to 
fix the typos, misspellings, poor grammar and incomplete sentences.

But in any case, whatever we start with should represent what those of us 
committed to doing it actually intend to do, rather than what some people 
years ago wrote down that never really started happening.  If the old 
charter represents the will of the current bards, great -- we'll use it. 
But we shouldn't decide what we "intend" to do, separate from what we -- all 
of us -- want from the College.

> I would be willing to come.

Wonderful!  We need everybody who's excited about it.
