I didn't notice anything prickly...maybe whoever perceived it as such...was in need of the coffee.

Subject: [Ayreton] Answering the Dragon's Call
Someone has been kind enough to let me know the last note I sent was perceived to be somewhat prickly. And for that, I apologize to all of you. What sounded perfectly reasonable in my somewhat sleep deprived mind didn't translate well into reality. (I had just returned from a whirlwind trip outside the region in order to prepare an impromptu Easter dinner for our nephew who is typically on another continent for these family occasions. While that is no excuse for hitting the send button without adult supervision sometimes, it does provide the necessary explanation.) Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.
What I wanted to say was, this is an amazingly busy time in the Midlands and we are fortunate to have so many opportunities to visit our neighboring shires and baronies that I am encouraging everyone to travel as much as possible. When possible, I am encouraging groups to have Crash Space Stewards, share the ride, take the train and explore the region. There are non-combatants who are very interested in serving as the Midlands Cheer and Drum Corps, especially at Pennsic. Please let me know if you'd like details.
The Cheer and Drum Corps is supporting the creation and/or declaration of a Midlands Anthem. We will post a list of events where we will be hosting bardic circles in hopes of discovering the Midlands Anthem. Wordsmiths and Tuners alike are asked to create a piece that is (1) easy to sing (2) speaks to all the Midlands including the army, archers, artisans and servants to the Crown (3) sounds good loud. Very loud. And in all keys at once. ;-)
