academie: ADS2 vs ADS3

Yeah, I know, this is actually the second "official" Symposium the Academie 
has sponsored.  The name "ADS3" was chosen because we were hoping to have 
ADS2 happen in the Central/Southern part of Atlantia sometime in the 
November-December time frame.

Things fell through, but not until after ADS3 had already appeared on the 
Kingdom Calendar.  Rather than complicate matters and encourage confusion, I 
chose to stick to the ADS3 moniker.

There have been many dance-only events in Atlantia, even before the Academie 
officially formed.  I attended one in Storvik, and I know that Isenfir has 
had "Nothing But Dance" events more than once.  Only recently have we begun 
to use the name "Atlantian Dance Symposium" in association with these 
events, but they've been run by the same folks you see around you in the 
Academie today -- Gregory, Stefan, Bryan, Vard, and others.

So, this event is going to be ADS3.  The next could be ADS2 if the Autocrat 
*really* wanted to confuse folks, though I would suggest ADS4.  Heck, we 
could start a tradition of skipping even numbers and call the next one ADS5 
for kicks!  :)

After all, what's in a name?

Lord Edvard Gayer, Secretary
