[Elfsea] Middle Eastern Dance Competition at Defender

I am sorry I did not see this earlier due to my trip to Pennsic. I'm afraid
I may have inadvertently used Elfsea's name without permission. The text of
the competition was taken from a posting from Arkell vom Cophous on the
occasion of my marriage to Pyro. I edited it and made a few changes, but did
not change the title of the winner. I accept responsibility for this error
and apologize for it. As Stella has stated, using the group's name in a
title generally implies it is an official group title. 

In service to Elfsea and her Crown,
Caelin on Andrede

Why can Master Caelin, one Baronial candidate, use
Elfsea in the title of his competition and Duchess
Willow, another Baronial candidate, cannot?

Perhaps, it is because you do not consider us to
actually be members of Elfsea.  I am very tired
with all the crap we have to go through to get anything
done.  I have been told that I am not good enough
to be an Autocrat's official mentor, because I
do not have a Keystone.  Does not matter that I
have been a warranted seneschal, Lord High Chancellor
of this Kingdom for 3 1/2 years, wrote our Kingdom
Laws, revised our Laws as High Chancellor, have an Oak,
A Comet, Star of Merit and Pelican.  I am told that
I do not understand the traditions of Elf Sea even
though I am a founding member of the group.  That I
am its 2ND Defender and 1st Bard.  I have lived in
this group this time for the last 12 years and have
been made to feel unwelcome most of the time.

Duchess Willow was told to do certain things in
order to have the dance competition.  She did what
she was told to do.  It was approved and it was
announced by the Autocrat of Defender at the Moot.
Just because you did not bother to come to Moot
does not change what was decided at Moot.  Just
because Sir Tomas did not bother to listen at
Moot does not change what was said there.

If Duchess Willow can not use the Baronial name
of Elfsea in her competition, then I think that
Master Caelin should not be allow to use the
Baronial name in the title of his competitions.

I am tired of the blatant favoritism in this
group between the Keystones and the other members.
I am tired in being told I am not really a member
of Elfsea.  I am tired of being told that I do not
know the Traditions of Elfsea or how things are
done in Elfsea. I have been quiet and put up with
this nonsense for the last 12 years.  I am tired
of being quiet and I am not going to be quiet
any more.

Master Jonathan
