The tradition has been that University sessions rotate around the
kingdom.  The rotation has been flexible depending on the number of
sessions held in a given year but there has been a concerted effort to
make sure that there is a session somewhere towards the southern reaches
of the kingdom every year or two.  In fact there is now a regional
deputy to the Chancellor for just such a purpose.

I'd certainly encourage groups in the south to begin looking to next
year for another session ~ start looking at requirements, looking at
possible sites, etc.

On the other matter:

This whole argument of it being hard(er) for people to get to events in
the south/north/VA/East Jepippsville
is patently ridiculous; any event that is closer to one end of the
kingdom than the other is bound to be harder to get to for folks at the
other end.  A fact of life, and one of the possible arguments for a P..
Pr...Principality.  (Bet y'all didn't think I could say that!!)
