Re: Golden Dolphin and Pearl

Pardon me for missing most of this discussion. Hope I'm not duplicating
other folk's comments. Our mail server was down most of yesterday and
I've come into the middle of a discussion that appears to have been
started by my original question about Golden Dolphin criteria.
Kendrick - is it possible to retrieve the digests from yesterday? I
checked the web page but the archives aren't current through yesterday
(imagine that! ;)
Anyway, I think Daffyd wrote:

Perhaps because such service to a local group, keeping the local group
active and viable, is a direct service to the Kingdom. Without strong,
vibrant local groups, there wouldn't *be* a kingdom worth beans.
That was the gist of my original question. Personally, I believe that
service that benefits a local group deserves Kingdom recognition. But
I wasn't sure if that was what the Golden Dolphin was for. So why
bother to recommend someone for a Golden Dolphin if all they do is sweat
their tails off to make the local group a great place to be in the SCA?
Not everyone can travel often. Not everyone has the skill to autocrat
large events. Not everyone has the time to be a Kingdom officer. But
lots of people who can't do those things do great service within local
- Anarra, hoping the server stays *up* today!
