[SCA-AE] last plea

Greetings Citizens of Aethelmearc;
'Round about February, I sent out a missive to the kingdom list
asking for help doing water bearing during my barony's event;
Blackstone Raids. I asked that people respond privately to the email
address listed at the bottom of the page.
NOT ONE GENTLE in this whole kingdom contacted me. Not one. Zip,
ZERO. So, for the last time: I am asking for help bearing water on
the field the day of the field battles. There are stations for the
archers, the thrown weapons, and the Fencers. Those groups are
relatively small, and much more stationary than the field
battles. Consider the job of one or even of five people getting
water across 1/4 the field of battle for Pennsic, with 200 fighters
on the field.
I will say that the first time I personally am berated for lack of
people on the field with water for the fighters from anyone I will
not have nice things going through my head. Several people from the
Midrealm and a couple people from Atlantia have said they will be
there to help. But not one person from my own kingdom responded. I
am ashamed and disgusted. I cannot believe that this entire kingdom
thinks so little of her fighters or her people as to not lend help in
time of need.
