Event Date Policy
-One of two things will happen in the next few
months-calendar dates for cantons and shires will be
reduced to one a year or the next crown will override.

calendar if we go to one calendar event a year.

more combined events (2 groups, a kingdom and a local)

is a % taken from the attendance over the normal local
event attendance.

about it.

Carluttio-Too long, there needs to be more than one a
Eadric-Too early in the month when we meet for repots.
