Re: Kingdom Birthday Events

Poster: seareach@juno.com (Bonnie  A Hindle)

(My Shire is going to KILL me for this BUT here goes.....)
	IF the Crown so chooses and instead of having an Atlantian
Birthday every year would like to have one every five years; the Shire of
Seareach would at this point very proudly like to put in a bid for
Atlantian Twenty Year in the year 2001.   I  would be happy to Autocrat. 
Does this cover what you wanted your Excellency??

	Lady Alesia Gillefalyn
	Seneschal for the Shire of Seareach (or at least until they get a
hold of this posting)
