    I'm glad you were at the first PARSEC meeting, Skipp, at least I know that all my efforts in organising it paid off and you were able to enjoy it ...... behind everything great man with an idea or a vision is an even greater woman, who generally does all the organising, photocopying and making phone calls to get things off the ground.

    My idea of reasonable is not a number set in stone - I believe that it should be attending the MAJORITY of events. If 8 events are organised over the course of 12 months, attending 4 - 5 of them shouldn't be too hard for anyone. Most events organised (non-costumed) aren't on a strict day - there is generally a list of dates, and the date where most people can attend is generally taken (eg New Years in August). Attending an event every 3 months shouldn't be a stretch for those that enjoy the friendships that have been made with this group. We all make the effort to catch up with other groups of friends more often than once every three months ....

    Even those who don't own costumes (and I was one of those) are always welcome at the "costumed events". It should be remembered that whilst a fair few ?costumed? events were organised, there are always people required to wrangle & be the ?face? of SAFF.

    People without costumes were never made to feel lesser than those with, they are actually WANTED there to help those "dressed up".

    ...was there serious talk of this being a breach of the equal opportunity act?

    Ask your lawyer friend about this:

    I don't see anything on there about post counts.

    Anyway under this structure I wouldn't be able to vote, because I attend only a couple of events a year. But I don't care that I don't vote because I only attend a couple of events a year.

    Sorry, but I'm honestly not aware as to why you can't attend RL events anymore. If you'd rather PM me about it instead of posting here, feel free. :)

    A check of my post history shows otherwise ... :)

    Marcus, thanks for the additional info regarding the EO Act! Hopefully there are a range of activities that everyone can get to over the year.
