Greetings to the List and All on the email,

Please accept my apologies if my email from earlier came across as pushy,
that was not the intent.

Helene's email states "Please let me know ASAP, as I'd like to get this on
the calendar today."  That says to me put our opinions out there a we'll
talk and get this figured out.  Granted, it prolly won't be decided today,
but she asked for everyone's input.

Helene also posted the following information to the list:

With some concerns about weather, I've been poking around
www.wunderground.com to get an idea of what temps might be like in
late April vs. early June.

 The record high was 93 (2002) and the record low was 46 degrees

Right now, Kingdom is going to end up taking the date that we have on the
Calendar for Coronation.  That blows but we can deal.  Will June be a little
warmer?  Yes.  But looking at all of the historical weather data, not by
much.  AND, if we get the list started at a decent time, would could have it
over by 1300ish (notice the "ish").

Two main reasons why I am in favor of the June date...

1- There is nothing close to us on that weekend event wise.  Yes, Steppes is
the weekend before.  But, with enough advertising that won't be a problem.
(See #2)

2- If we go with the June weekend for the event, we're just over a month
away from Crown Tourny.  We could bill Commanders' Crucible something like
this... "Will you take your chances and brave the fires of Commanders'
Crucible to be the next Crown of Ansteorra" or something along those lines.
This would bring Crown presence (hopefully) which in turn will bring more
people to the event.  If we can get the right site with a building that has
AC, that will help with the Artisans and those who don't like being outside
in the heat (His Excellency was the original suggestor of June).

Realize that, although I am on fire about the June date, that doesn't mean
that I am not willing to listen to other's opinions, nor does it mean I am
not flexible.

In Service,

Centurion Liam Gordon
Knights Marshal
