I have a small dog in this fight since I am back in town now but will  
likely deploy soon.

I got here as the previous group folded and the rebuild came from  
fighters wanting something to do because the Tuesday practice wasn't  
good for us.  It started in Roak's back yard and soon we had enough  
folks we had to move, so we returned to the park.  Eventually, it came  
up to form an official group.

Since we fully expected the membership to swell and shrink, we opted  
for a Stronghold, for which we needed a Barony to support us.  Bryn  
Gwlad gladly stepped up and supported us.  I have seen nothing  
implying we should abandon Hellsgate for the larger Barony, but they  
have supported us and we, in turn, should be supporting them.   
Additionally, we have very few heavy fighters that are healthy to  
fight, so I personally see having to make trips to Bryn Gwlad  
practices to get any kind of improvement in my fighting.  Tuesday is  
largely impractical when the drive gets me home as late as it would  
and then I ave to be up early the next morning (gas price hardly  
factors in).  As for Sunday being the only day available for practice,  
I could accept practice up here any day of the week.  Sunday was  
originally practical for the fighters and just sort of continued by  

Fighter practice began and IMO should remain focused on fighting, with  
additional activities for non-fighters.  If, in order to improve my  
skills, I need to go outside the Stronghold, I see no reason not to  
make the Baronial practice ONCE A MONTH.  Three weeks up here and one  
down there is not likely to doom the group.

I will of course support the Stronghold in whatever is decided.

As always, In Service,
Coenred aet Rauenesdale
