Next Business Meeting – Tuesday, August 26th

Good morning,

Please remember to join us for our next business meeting, next Tuesday, August 26th, at the Denny’s on 128th in Everett. There will be a bid for Art of War and lots of news of changes to the site that you’ll want to hear. Also, if you are interested in open officer positions, or just observing what our officers do, this is a good place to start.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Baronial Scriptorium and Challenge

Greetings Scribal Enthusiasts!

The challenge continues and there are a couple names standing out. A “door prize” will be awarded at the Second Scriptorium Event this month! That’s the one on 8/23 at the North Sound Sergeantry Trials. The time will depend on other events and will be announced via town cry.

I will also host a painting event at the Baronial Social 9/2 7pm - 8p. 8 pm marks the end of the challenge, so start racking up some points today! If you want to provide art for an award, please contact me off list and we can go over any requirements for full art or arrange exchange of partial art/art that needs to be scanned. I am also happy to lend my ability to you if you just want to provide input.

Donation and Scribe Sale!

Hello!

Geoff and I are in the throes of moving. I took some time to complete the Scribal inventory so I can spend vicariously through the Scribal budget to replace assets before I hand over the office.

I have a handful of brushes, paints, and palettes that need new homes.

They are either in need of refurbishment, but replacement is more economic; don’t fit well with an easy to travel kit; or, in the case of paints, are beyond the age where I can guarantee usability and lightfastness.

They will be at the Baronial Social and available to purchase or have depending on the condition. All proceeds will return to the Barony as part of the Scribe’s budget.

Coincidentally, the Scribal challenge will also begin at the Social. I’ll be bringing the first sample of the Secret Chest to titillate and motivate! Also, charter blanks.

Lastly we have a table catapult kit and castle building blocks to offload. If no one wants them at the Social, we’ll be dropping those off at Goodwill.

Stanwood Fair Demo Deadline

DEADLINE TO REQUEST YOUR FREE FAIR & PARKING PASSES IS THURSDAY MORNING 9AM.

We have a growing crew of volunteers for the demo this weekend but are still looking for a few more demos on Sunday.

FIGHTERS – We have interest from rapier fighters in joining the demo so are looking for a Rapier Marshal (and more fighters).  We have a Heavy marshal but no fighters committed yet.  Please pass the call for volunteers on to your e-lists and friends!  Heavy fighting tentatively at 11am Saturday, and rapier tentatively at 1pm Saturday, “fighters choice.”  Sunday too if there’s interest from the fighting community.

We have a great spot under the trees, places to sit & rest, and can count on an enthusiastic Fair-going public. Even if you don’t have a demo, consider being one of our roving chatelaines.  It’ll earn you a free pass to the Fair!!

Thanks everyone!
