This wonderful game is made of many diverse groups of people. We organize ourselves in different ways: geographically, by interest, by friendships (households, guilds). As a feudalistic society we organize ourselves accordingly with royalty and peers. As a modern society we organize ourselves accordingly with a board of directors and officers. We are all volunteers. We have perspectives as diverse as the ways that we organize ourselves. Just how can and does all this diversity work together? Bring your ideas, questions, thoughts, wonderings etc ... to discuss. We are stronger together! How can we support each other?
Bring your instrument(s) of choice and play along! You will be able to share the floor with dancers, sometimes playing for them.
