But let us not shoot ourselves in the foot getting rid of tradition either.
If we are a group that researches and recreates History and traditions lets
not ignore and throw out our own traditions and history. Yes sometimes we
need to look at things and change but do it with thought and reason. Not
just to change it. Remember that all you "young ones" will someday be "old

Traditions are well and good.  However, at times, traditions need to be
modified to fit the group's needs.

Like the culture camps.  I too attended Defender 5 years ago (my first
event) when the culture camps were in full swing.  These camps gave me the
feel of the "dream" of the SCA.  I am sad to see them go away, but they are
a lot of work and I suppose people were getting tired of creating them.

Sometimes a change can create a renewed interest.  Let's not close our minds
to new ideas.
