Event fee question
- After running my event this weekend, and seeing many people from my canton
show up, and not pay entry fees, and not do any work, I wondered how often
that happens. My canton has this understanding that no one in the canton
pays, since they are hosting. But I saw quite a few people from our group
not doing anything to help. It was rather frustrating, as at our last
event, when I authorized, I went ahead and paid the site fee since I knew I
would be no help that day. How do you all do it?

recognized as such - a single person Laureled in Dancing, illumination and
research for example. What kills me is when someone says their laurel is
in "Diverse Arts: all but Equestrian arts and non-cloth armor" or some such
broad band of fields. I find such a description laughable because no one
can be a master of that many things unless they are doing nothing else -
even then, they will fall short of completely mastering something in that
This person has mastered (according to the description) raising animals,
spinning thread, weaving cloth, cooking, research, sewing, blowing glass,
casting metalwork, making jewelry, cutting stones, pottery, and on and on
...... according to the description of "everything except armor and
equestrian" and that is just so difficult to believe that I find it laughable.
If someone has mastered an art, let them be known for it. If someone is
being laureled, don't include everything that they have tried once as
something for which they are being laureled. It just looks bad, IMO.
