 Absolutely.  If you think I'm full of it here, SAY SO.  Speak up. If
have other ideas, I -want- to hear them.


I don't think you are full of it. I DO think that this is a symptom of alrger problem within not just Norhtkeep, or The North, or even Ansteorra. It is a problem that is prevelant thoughout the society. People simply do not do as much as they used to. This extends to everything from classes, to practices, to events. People are not staying the night at events, not staying for feast, daytripping. In the 5 years I have been in the SCA the thing I see the most is half empty camps on Sat. nights and empty classes during the day.  I am not sure that there is a remedy for this. I just don't know. But I do know that this attitude of lethargy is sucking the society dry like a jungle leech. It is really a sad course of events. In the twenty five or so events I have been to in the last five years I can think of approx. 3 times that come Sat. night it was not the same few people to hang out with and enjoy the evening. Don't get me wrong these are people I care about a whole lot, but the smaller the groups of people having a good time on Saturday night, the less it holds my own interest to stay. This attitude bleeds over into everything including classes, meetings and local gatherings.
So, you end up with the core group of say ten people or so for a shire and twenty or so for a barony, that do everything, go to everyhting and stay at everything when possible.
DISCLAIMER: I do not know how to fix any of this other than to do what I do, go to events and stay when I go, go to all classes and local gatherings that hold interest for me and to work my own self at events. I do not have the answers.
