The last several years, King's College events have been encouraging just such classes, and as such
the class tracks have increased from historic 4-5 tracks to 10-12 tracks, as more have been
teaching service oriented classes, as well as pure history and fighting technique; and as the
Pelican's have been teaching and encouraging classes on service.
Also, Westgate tossed around the idea of doing a 'service' oriented theme for a future Westgate
Winter Collegium, so that maybe a good venue for a focus area such as suggested.
It's a good idea for an event, and thankfully, one that I've heard mentioned recently by others as
well; so perhaps it's time has come.
