A wise man has spoken.

I agree wholeheartedly!

> get it to Aelfric... It is sort of off topic from the earlier thread, so I
> will branch it off into its own discussion.
> Personally, I see the idea of fundraising by individual groups within the
> barony as divisive. We are ONE barony - the renown of the singers, dancers,
> fencers, armoured combatants, illuminaters, butchers, bakers and candlestick
> makers all reflects back upon each and every one of us. If one of those
> individual activities needs funds so as to further the renown of the group,
> the group should be willing to support that.
> Does that mean we shouldn't ask questions before handing out money? No. We
> should always be diligent and ask questions about expenditures, that's just
> good business.
> What it does mean though is that if we are all one group, one barony, there
> is no need for the "fencers" to hold a fundraiser to get new loaner gear. It
> means that there is a need for CYNNABAR to hold a fundraiser to get new
> loaner gear for those members of CYNNABAR who want to try out fencing to
> use. If that group happens to be all current fencers, so be it, but it
> shouldn't necessarily be described as such, unless we are trying to build
> boundaries within our group.
