Coronets Nobildonna Fiore Leonetta Bardi and Lord Frithuric Ulman:

A great event this weekend. A new A&S champion. Farewell to Tasha, welcome to Phedre. It was a great day, and we welcomed leander, the first baby of our tenure.

If you are interested in running an event, the kingdom calendar is a little late, so please feel free to step up. We can get you an assistant if needed.

Event Proposal: Frithuric for Valerian of Sommerset

Valerian has been the heavy list Champion for some time, and he is proposing a Baronial Heavy Weapons Champion, Oct 15h as preference, 16th, Oct 22, 23 following weekend as fallback.

The proposed site is winnekinnie castle, availability is being checked. Fallback location is ipswich river park. The primary purpose will be the heavy weapons champions. This should be an inexpensive site and event, a halfdayish sort of event similar to Rapier champions.

Arlyanna: Is their enough time to publicize this kingdom wide?

Yes, and while foreign visitors are welcome, this event is more focused on local participation.

Rapier champs had time to be announced for insurance purposes, and this is on a similar time frame.

Eadgyth: Kingdom law has changed, but some Corpora references require a Baronial court to be published in the journal of record. 

To date, the baronial publication has been sufficient.

Court was held at Rapier Champs. 

Tasha: Nothing in kingdom law appears to define publicization requirements. Adequate publication to the local populace has been in sufficient.

I will check Corpora next.

Frithutic: Can we approve this pending legal/corpora requirements?

Aaradyn: Yes. Please Vote. 

Majority approves.

General announcements: 

Tasha: I quit my position as central region seneschal, as I will be moving at some point. A call has gone out for replacements everyone. If you are interested, there is a form to fill out. It’s not especially onerous.

Arlyana: The infamous privateer Peter Red Beard who died by his own hand while attempting to poison opposing lawyer.

Justin: The usual heads up for this time of year. As far as we know, Arisia is happening this time of year on Martin Luther King weekend. There will be the standard Rennaisance Ball as an SCA Demo, and possibly a fencing demo, if fencers are interested. And our Seneschal is in the Art Show.

Ysabel: I have been tasked with putting together an A&S exhibit at Coronation. Please let me know if you are going and can join the display. If you have a display that you can hand off, coordinate with Ysabel.

Pandaulf: Sunday the 18th, Worcester Start in Qunitavia. 11am-6pm Demo.Coordinate with Seraphina if you are interested.
