In a group this small, committing to do an event requires everyone's 
help. It really makes more sense to ask everyone's opinion, rather 
than just have decisions made by a committee... Come to think of 
it, who exactly makes up our committee? It requires the seneschal,
treasurer, and one other officer... who is that officer?

While it seems that way, I would like to note that we have not 
actually put in a bid for anything yet. Each of the events we have 
looked at doing has, for one reason or another, been given to 
another group before we could actually make a bid for the event.

I agree. I know that Kingdom has asked for a bid, for Queen's, from 
each region. I don't know if anyone from the Central Region has put 
in a bid yet. I would like to see Glaslyn get this event, and make 
some money. It would be great to not have to ask Steppes for 
financial assistance when we get ready to do our event. However, I 
don't think the earth will shatter if we don't get (or even put in a bid) 
for this one. I just think it would be an easy, relatively inexpensive, 
and nice event for us to do.

The best way for us to plan for the future, would be to start 
watching the lists, and to look at what events are coming up... 
what events are taking bids. That is exactly what Lavina did. Yes, 
they want bids by yesterday. Queen's however, wont be decided 
until after Crown Tournament... I mean, who is going to tell our new 
Queen where she has to have her event? They just want to be able 
to present these bids to Her Highness, as soon as they know who 
she is.
