#6. How will you address geographic issues…

This Barony has a very large geographical footprint. It is good that the current practices take place towards the center of that land mass, but it still takes some areas a two hour drive to get to them. Any thoughts and ideas on attempts get more classes and practices to be spread into the farther regions and corners of the Barony? If one is expected to drive the two hours to the center of the Barony for a practice/class, should it not be expected that once in a while, that that travel time and distance be placed upon those who benefit normally from living close?

    We have already tried to begin this process by opening up activities in the old regions Fennbrycg and Dragon’s Aerie. We have started a fencing, youth, and heavy practices while also focusing on sewing days and bardic circles. I know this only covers the eastern side of the barony. We are also in contact with some people from the north eastern section who are interested in running thrown weapons and A&S days.

    I know that this only covers the eastern side of the barony, though. We have been talking with a few members inside of Ravenhill who are interested in starting things up again and we are very eager to facilitate and start this back up. They need the support of the rest of the barony to make sure that their area can also thrive and grow as well. We are ready to be there for everyone as an advocate.

    We are listening and we do hear you.

    The Barony has been improving, travelling to areas where locals make the necessary effort on their end and we encourage anyone to bring forth a proposal. Unfortunately, we are not all knowing nor can we do it all. We think the barony does the best it can with the sites we have available currently but there is always room for improvement. We would encourage you to bring forth proposals with event ideas, location and how you’re going to help get it going.

    Not originally being from Connecticut, neither one of us really understood the river as geographic barrier rather than simply feature until we had lived here a while. So we don’t have the same psychological issue as much of the barony with crossing it. We also travel, a lot. The groups we come from are also not small geographically, and we’re used to traveling for work and pleasure, sometimes for several hours for a three hour meeting. Thankfully, due to the location of our home, we can make it to all of the occupied portions of the barony inside of two hours, which isn’t a big deal for us.

    We are not unaware of the effect of having Their Excellencies’ presence at various practices, workshops, and meetings. The announcement of their attendance tends to bring out more people and create more buzz within the barony. So, if people in the more outlying regions choose to hold workshops or demos, we would lend the weight of the office to them as much as possible. Other than that, all we can do is strongly encourage the residents who also live outside the Hartford metro area to hold inclusive events.
