RE: Kingdom-jumping

Having been born in Wise Co., and until a few years ago having lived 
for several years just a few miles from Abingdon, I can vouche that we 
were pretty cut off from outside help and communication.  It saddens me 
 that the area had to leave the wonderful kingdom of Atlantia.  I hope 
that this move will help to expand the resources available to SCAdians 
who live in this area.

Indeed. The history behind the turnover of the Far Southwest Virginia 
lands is a
long one, fraught with calls for help from Abingdon and Wise County that
unfortunately we just could not support from Blacksburg. To the best of my
knowledge, only somewhere between five and ten active members of the SCA
are affected by the cession to Meridies, and since they were/are playing
exclusively with Meridies anyway, that effect is remarkably small anyway. The
folks I talked to down that way were very nice, and I wish them well.
