Greeting to the Populace,

For a few months we have been talking about changing the Loch Chivalric
Fighter Practice.  We currently hold our fighter practice on Stargate Lands
on Tuesday nights.  The practice is often not well atteneded, and when it
is, there are mostly fighters from the loch.  There has been talk  of moving
the practice closer to where more of the loch populace lives.  There are two
main reasons for this that I see.  One is that with practice closer to home,
it will make attending practice easiler and less expensive for our members.
The second reason is recruitment.  We are not going to add any members to
our populace if our only public event is a fighter practice held in
stargate.  Even stargate does not get recruitment from this practice, and
has started a Sunday practice at Memorial Park.  Also when we do get new
memebers to our populace meetings, we then tell them to get to fighter
practice, its 30 miles away.

Next, the day of the week. People's lives are busier than ever.  If we move
the practice to a local park, most likley we will be kicked out by 10pm.
That would get us all home at a decent hour (which would be a nice change).
Our other choice, would be to start a practice on Sunday like stargate has
done.  For recuirtment we would have more face time with the public, since
more people use the parks on weekends than weekdays.  Also we wouldn't have
as many people running home from work, then having to rush out again that
evening for practice.  The down side to moving the day its held if that most
of the current fighters have Tuesday night carved out of their schedule for
fighting.  Also the other day I've mostly heard suggested is Sunday, so
getting home from events in a hurry would be a new concern.

There are two questions to be answered:

1. Do we want to move practice down to the Loch
2. Do we want to keep it at the same time?

I'm currently activly seeking opinions on this issue.  I know there are
opnions out there, I've heard some.
