Well, that would be the tweak by TRM I had in mind.  ;p  It's 
probably good, though, that you're being the stick to my carrot.  :>

If I recall correctly, the usual Make-A-Wish thing is the 
"Princess/Knight/Whatever for a Day" sort of schtick; that's the sort of 
thing which I was thinking could be adapted *if* the SCA decides to do 

Frankly, I'm not necessarily comfortable with the idea in general - if 
they "know of" the SCA but have chosen not to play with us, I'm not keen 
on even nominally (by which I literally mean 'in name only') bestowing one 
of our highest honors.  I'll play along if that's the decision, but I 
think they'd be better off asking one of the Ren Faires, which is where 
they actually played.  (It'd probably mean more, too!)

My "vote", on further consideration, is to pass this request up the chain 
with the same alacrity with which I'd dispose of a nervous skunk.
