I think that's a great idea! And once we move the rapier to Wednesdays with 
heavy fighters we'll have a chance to trade off a little on those with 
people who want to help out in talking to people about the organization.

Namron had some wonderful flyers last weekend at the medfaire. I wish I had 
not misplaced the one I was given. If we could have some more flyers like we 
did at Dhirnadir (sp) back in October, that would be a very easy outline to 
go off of as to what to talk about.

Even though, the Hospitalier mentioned that she didn't want to hold these 
newcomers meetings at practices because of the possibility of putting off 
the people more interested in A&S with a lot of the combat going on around
