I Love he Idea of Sheparding new commers. Proboly because it is somnething I
have always done. For me when I bring a newcommer to an event, I make thier
Garb, go over SCA manners and forms of curtisy, explain th rank and keep
them in tow for a few events untill they feel comfortable ventering forth
on thier own. I do this because it was done for me. and I hope that those I
shepard in will do it for the ones they too one day my introduce to the
socity. I get such a kick out of, and such a sence of pride when I see them
grow and asdvance in the Socity
