[Bonwicke] Gothic War Site

A humble opinion from outside the Western Region:

I love coming to Gothic Wars. Wherever it is I will try and make it.

However, I greatly enjoyed the Coleman site.  I personally had no
issues with the gate or the mundanes.  Since I enjoy my camping a bit
on the spoiled side, the amenities of Coleman far outweigh what
Sweetwater has to offer. That is me personally.

Now for my Barony (Elfsea), I am the road trip planner for my Barony. 
This year at Gothic, Elfsea had over 20 populace members in
attendance. That is double from the year previous.  Those 20 came home
with nothing but good things to say about the site.

Like:

"praise to our friends in the Western Region. Thank you for the
wonderful camping site."

Or:

"*Everything* was but a short walk away. List fields, melee fields,
bath houses and court venues. Simply marvelous."

I have been assured by many that they were sorry they missed out and
are looking forward to Gothic next year.  This is in no small part to
the new site. I can honestly tell you that moving to a different site
will make it more difficult to get first-timers out.  You will always
have your core group and the faithful that will follow wherever, it's
the ones that aren't yet hooked you have to think about.

Ever in Service,

Lady Sabine le Curter
Elfsea Hospitaler and Chronicler

We in the West are merely the hosts of this event, it is the rest of the Kingdom that are the guests.

Lord Ian said it best: "I myself didn't like the coleman site, but what i like isn't important, we are in the business of drawing people to our events.  If coleman has a larger drawing power than sweetwater, then i say we have to use it."
