In a similar vein, I was very pleased that when I was called into Court to
recieve my AoA, I found at my side the lord who had helped me so much when I
first joined (at the tender age 0f 14).  He had talked to my parents,
convincing them that the SCA was a safe place, and my whole canton arranged to
have folks to look out for me at events--without letting me know, because at 14
I would have been offended.  I was glad that someone who had made my getting
the award possible was there when I recieved it, and I felt he represented my
whole canton and all the assistance they had given me over the years.  Thanks,

Actually, I was so startled and befuddeled by the whole idea that *I* was being
called into court, that the assistance in finding the Thrones was needed!
