even though it is slightly off-topic. I figure people here will at
least have interesting viewpoints on this topic.
Why is it that A&S competitions discourage Laurels from entering, or
restrict which categories they can enter? How are the people going to
see what they could be striving for if the Laurels' work isn't out on
the table? Not every Laurel carries their work around with them all the
time. Sure, you need to encourage newbies to participate without
feeling threatened, but I don't think having good work in the comp is
necessarily threatening. I'd find it more inspiring, myself.
Imagine if most SCA tourneys didn't allow knights to compete, only to
judge/marshall. Wouldn't that be weird? The fighters sometimes have
"unbelted" tourneys to give the newbies a chance of winning. No reason
that Laurels couldn't be encouraged to enter most A&S comps, but have
"newbie" judging separately sometimes.
