As a group, I think the EQ community needs to be finding more ways to bring the period feel to the activity. I already hear some mumbling about horse trailers, horse pens/tape, etc at events. We need to make sure that we exist as an activity that enhances the experience of those that enjoy it and limit the degree to which we impact non-participants enjoyment of the socieyt.
I would definately prefer not to see PA systems in use at SCA events.

It has been tried before, at the June Playday last year in Ione, with mixed opinions of it's usefulness. That particular site had all of the attention focused on one central arena, not the larger area we had for Equestrium. I agree with Else, let's try to work a little more on paying heed to the heralds before *augmenting* their skills or adding to our event budget.

Agreed, but I think it might be worth trying once for an Equestrian-ONLY event. Then do a post mortem and see what the consensus is. Also, in general, I think where the horses are concerned, there is probably more need to bend some protocol for safety and efficiency, then dial it back once we really have a cohesive group. That can be determined going forward. LvG --- In WestKingdomEQ@ yahoogroups. com, "Else Hunrvogt" <nancyreimers@ ...> wrote:

comment, or the dreaded Administrator would have jumped in to chastise
the perpetrator (-insert Dearth Vader breathing sound here-). Its
only an argument when people stop listening to well meaning
lessons-learned comments and start taking them personally.
