   I don't recall ever stating that we should apply the title 'warden',
 or any other we dicide to use, to the heavy champion only. So far as
 I've seen, you're the only one arguing for a separate title for rapier
   I'd think it easier to find one general title we could apply to all of
 our Regional Champions rather than seven different ones. Let's not make
 it too complicated.
   BTW- the title of 'warden' was used right up to the reign of Henry
 VIII, so the arguement that it's not appropriate for late period
 fighters is a bit off. I suggested the title because it implies someone
 who is appointed to prepare the defenses of a region, which is something
 I'd like ALL our Regional Champions to do, in their respective areas.
   If you have a better idea for a title we can use for all of our
 champions, let's hear it, and see what everyone thinks of it.

Ok Charles lets get this VERY VERY clear. I Have given ideas for names we can
use for the rapier winner.  I NEVER said nor started an arguement that warden
wasn't a "period" title for the rapier champion. BUT, as has been done in Many
a Barony the titles for the rapier champion and heavy champion is different.
And let's not even go into the debate that the title for an artisan in almost
never the same as he fighters OK! So, lets pull our head out of our kilt and
move on OK? 

 Anyway, So where was I going with this oh ya, I think that the Titles that
the winners get should match the form in which they compete. I think the A&S
sould have something that has to do with the arts ( what a concept) the bards
also should have a matching title. 7 titles IMHO are not that hard to do. It
might even help stop some questions like ... you meet Ld Stick Swinger at an
event and hear he is the southern regional warden. you think that is neat but
then at the same event you bump into Lady Harper of the golden voice and she
also says she is the warden of the southern region. Wouldn't you get a tad bit
brain locked with that? I know I would. 

 This is all something that we can talk about face to face in Ravens Fort or
where ever we hold this get together.

I have but this to say. Never put Honors before HONOR.
