the laurel in that field has an 'advantage' over those who are not laureled
Personal solution: Have an event that is a Laurel A&S Tournament and make
sure the Royalty *will* be there. - Plan it around the royalty's schedule,
if possible. Having the royalty there insures high attendance, having a
laurel tourney with royalty there insures high participation on the part of
the laurels. *grin* If you can get the Crown to make the event a
Tournament of Chivalry at the same go- it's sure to be a winner, as the
fighters will come in droves for it.
The curious will come to see what the laurels can do. Those who want to be
noticed will come to see that to which they aspire. Both in A&S and in
fighting. Plus, you'll get the usual people that will attend just because
the royalty are there.
Just an idea.....
Despina de la wants to put on such an event in the worst way but her group
can't get it together enough to let her put on a Regional A&S the way she
wants to...... *sigh*
