Thank you, Graf Galen for sharing the information on the Tournaments of
the Nine Worthies. I have a few questions. How long ago was the last
such tournament? Why was the event run as a gang-venture? What
advantage did co-stewards offer over one steward from a single barony?
As I noted previously, I do not doubt that an event *can* be run by
multiple groups, I just question the wisdom of doing so. As far as I

As to the idea of using a steward from one area, a gate crew from
another, and perhaps a marshalling team from yet another--yes, I believe
this is doable. Again, I don't see any advantage in it. So we've done

popular icons will not make the US army a viable model or analogy for a
(2) the military has--as one sould was honest enough to admit--never
been known for its fiscal responsibility or financial efficiency, and

their lives when an improperly secured construction crane dropped its
hook on their passing humvee.
