Dear Lord Duffus and Members of Northkeep,

    I apologize to you all.
    Apparently someone who does not have the authority to chose the
person(s) to run activities for Castellan asked you to do so.  However,
members who are chosen as the stewards for an event are the responsible
parties for choosing who is in charge of the various aspects of said event.
    I, and my fellow stewards appreciate your service for the last three
years, running our Barony's thrown weapon contest at Castellan.  However,
discussion among the stewards led us to choose Lord Herrik for the specific
reason that "you" Lord Duffus HAVE run the competition for the past three
years.  It seemed appropriate to diversify our pool of members who "have"
run a thrown weapons competition.  We did not dismiss you "out of hand", we
trusted that as a sergeant at arms you would be willing to freely share and
teach another from your experience.  Isn't that what the S.C.A. and pursuit
of membership in the belted circle is all about, isn't it?
    I applaud Lord Herrik for taking the initiative to seek weapons and help
if that is what he needed to fulfill his obligation to the stewards request
for "him" to run the competition.  I must also applaud Lord Herrik and the
stewards for this event for asking and accepting help from whomever whishes
to provide it, even you... :)
