It is not the responsibility of the MoAS to organize all A&S activities within the shire and every person within the shire has the right to organize such activities if they wish, following shire guidelines. However in the interests of promoting A&S activities within the group it has been decided that this general statement in the Drachenwald handbook is insufficient. Those who decide to take on the job of MoAS must undertake the following duties. If they do not complete this minimum amount of duties the shire populous have the right for a vote of no confidence (as per the book of shire law). The result of a vote of no confidence will be a recommendation to the Isles/Drachenwald MoAS for removal of the officer
