    Greetings to the readers of the Rialto and the Steps (Antir list) from
  Hroulag Nilsen.
    Yesterday I attended the Board of Directors meeting near Seattle WA.
  Here follows some facts and some of my opinions of that meeting (note
  opinions will be marking by a * at the start of each line). This is all to
  the best of my recollection, I also do not claim the the spelling of any
  names will be correct.

  lokking then I had attended before

     Robin Jones (Kingdom of Meridies..) banishment overturned
     Joanne Sheilds (Kingdom of AnTir) banishment overturned on procedural
  grounds, but membership revoked for cause

     General Meeting
     New Zealand and the Kingdom Drakenfauld (sp?>) do not have to mail in
  the non-member fees within the normal guidelines. Drakenfauld will not
  actually send money, they will just tell Milpitas how much and Milpitas
  will deduct it from the newsletter stipend.
  *This is due to the costs of currency transactions, it will actually save
  both them and the SCA money

      The TI is one issue behind and the Complete Anachronist is now three
  behind. *They 'hope' to catch up soon, what ever that means. BTW aren't we
  still owed *one from a couple of years ago?
      There are still many questions concerning both the Corp liability and
  the Chirurgeon liability. John will ask the team assembled for the
  proposed new waiver to look into this question.
      Rejected the list of 20 people sent in by the Grand Council to be
  added to the Grand Council. All they were given was a list of names. They
  also wanted to know something about these people. i.e resumes, etc
  * They were very concerned that they had no way to know who these people
  where, *they want the Grand Council to reflect all Kingdoms, ideas,
  *backgrounds, etc. The Society Seneschal was VERY concerned that there
  were only *2 (3???) women on the list. The idea was expressed that they
  needed to know who *these people were and what their background was. Even
  the 're-formers' wanted *to know more before they accepted this list.
