      Would most of the Ravenslake people be working say later in the evening of Saturday at MKAOD?  Yea, I know that having a meeting at an event is a killer for the host group. 
      Another thought...what about a "Towne meeting" at a fighter practice, say at the beginning or end of a session at a popularly agreed time/day???
      Just playing with thoughts here while basking in the Florida sun...

      As I just mentioned - I would almost rather a specific
      time and place OUTSIDE of events that the meetings be
      held at.

      At MKAOD - most of Ravenslake will be working, again,
      as we were for Border Skirmish. At All Souls - most
      of Vanished Woods will be working the event. Ditto TGS
      for 12th Night. If we want to have a discussion, it's
      hard to bounce ideas off of each other if we are
      missing most of a group.

      If we meet outside of an event, at worst, it'll give
      people an idea of how Baronial Meetings will work.
      People will get a feel for how far is it to travel,
      time it takes to get to places, general idea of where
      the meetings will be held, and who is likely to show
