[Hellsgate] Thoughts on Demo

One thing to consider when scheduling demos is not just whether or not
there is an event near by....

Thing is, it is not about whether or not folks are able to head over to
Shadowlands for the event that day. It is more about the PR of folks from
one group not being able to go to a group that is not that far away because
of conflicting SCA schedules.

Hellsgate had a pretty good turnout for Crucible. Not 300 people, but a
good fun day. Part of the reaon that folks show up for events in smaller
groups is that they know the people in the group. It is not "I am going to
go to HellsGate's event", it is more "I want to go see Liam, or Timur or
whoever". This is how small groups can be successful...make it personal. If
you go see them, they will come see you.
If some folks from Hellsgate don't go to Shadowlands because they have
other things to do, no biggie. If folks from Hellsgate are not able to go
to Shadowlands because Hellsgate has scheduled something opposite, that can
have fallout. That make sense?
