It takes a lot to get me riled up, my lord, and a great deal more than this
to make me flame anybody.  Therefore, please consider that the following is
being said in a calm, reasonable tone of voice.

Did any group in central kingdom offer to host this meeting?  In fairness,
did all groups in kingdom have a chance to bid for it? I seem to remember
requests going out to both this forum and the Acorn for such bids.   Who
decided that it will be held where it is sceduled?  (Hint - it was not "The
North", that humongous amorphous entity whose only purpose in life is to
"belittle" southerners.) 

And whatever the answers to those questions are, Lord Liam, consider that
"The North", has on numerous occasions been forced to travel south for
kingdom events when certain southern kings refused to travel outside their
own areas.  Both Their Present Majesties and Their Highnesses are to be
commended that they travel so willingly to ALL parts of the kingdom.
