You let it out Brother.
My take on it is.... They should have kept the September war where it was. If you look at it from a business point of view where you have a retail store that is not popular and has little to no traffic, the store will not grow or it will fail. " the customer is always right".
If they have an unpopular war it will fail no matter what the SCA wants it to be. The war is hot, it is small, has very little to offer as vendors, and did I mention hot(I think I did).
I have not gone to this war due to the above, where on the other hand, I do like Estrella as all of the things above are not present . Not to mention I like the drive. It creates a feeling of traveling abroad.
I'm just saying, is all.

Being a two event warband as I saw mentioned in a different topic is disappointing. From what I was told at Highland from the folks in Vegas, Talon Crescent (if that is the correct name) will not be a war in 2014 because they don't have a site yet. I'm not going to Estrella for the foreseeable future as that war is a mess.
I know it is going to be another year before it happens again but I would really like to push the brothers to go to Highland war 2014. Yes it was hot and yes I was fighting with a crossbow not a scutum but this out of shape 48 year was on the field.
Are we a warband in name only? No I'm not throwing down the gauntlet I'm just disappointed that we don't attend a war that is in our own kingdom because it is hot. By 6 a breeze had picked up and it was pleasant. I had more fun at Highland than I have had in a long time. Talk to the Myrmidons, talk to the Orkneys I think they would agree with me. Miro and Feelan (sp?) kicked butt ask them. I understand that people don't want to show up on a Thursday, I understand the traffic on a Friday coming out of S.D. to Victorville sucks but my traffic in LA sucked and the war was worth it. Only two wars a year as a warband sucks more.
