Brent Hanner said something that sounded like:

Actually, I *think* there are many more than that. The two main
proposals being presented are "small" vs "large". At this point, "small"
and "large" have not been defined.

This is close to one of the proposals. Basically the Southern Region plus
the groups south of Victoria. (Of course that might be what you said but
I'm confused by the Raven's Fort inclusion since they are in the
Southern Region.)

Unfortunately both Loch Solier and Seawinds are having events that
weekend so there may be little representation from that part of the

This is one of the large proposals.

Unfortunately I have to admit that personally I've only made it to one
Bonwicke event so far. Fortunately I had so much fun that I plan on
visiting more often.

Unfortunately, I see this as a bit of bias. The person presenting the
"small" Principality is also the person organizing the meeting and from
Tempio. If you notice, they are the only groups outside of the Southern
Region that were including even when there has been groups in the southern
Coastal area express interest.
	(Maybe the thinking is to see if the Southern Region wants to
	do it first and ask others later, but I see this as a bad plan.)

I would like to encourage one and all to come, or send a liason, to
represent their point of view, either for or against any of it. This is
an early meeting to find out if there is interest. If there is shown
enough interest that the entire Western Region would like to come in
mass or not at all, I would enjoy having it being known by one and all.

Yes, it would be a large Principality, but I see that as a good thing.
Although *I* don't want it to become a Kingdom, it is good to plan for
it to become one in the future. Never intentionally limit yourself.

As well, remember if the gene pool is too small, you get some nasty
side-effects.  *grin*

Just some words from a Southern Region person who is still undecided on
the whole thing.
