I've read on the Ayreton A&S page that people (presumably non-
fighters, like me) have taken to bringing A&S materials to fighter
practices and doing their crafts there. Is that still done? Is it
still welcomed/permitted? Because I'd really like to come and meet
people and hang, but not if I'm expected to fight or go home. I'm SO
not a fighter, daydreams aside.
