Our String Theory Ithra is set to run this weekend! Although we will be doing all registration and payments on site, in order to get a good estimate of the class sizes, I would invite you to go to the Ithra web page and click on the classes you intend to take. There are four tracks of excellent classes, all dealing with stringy things! Woven strings, braided strings, string cheese, strings of meat, strings of words….
Go to www.ithra.antir.sca.org and select “String Theory”. Then enter your password and ID, and select the classes you want to take. If you have forgotten your password or ID, send me a message and I’ll look it up for you. J firstname.lastname@example.org
Site fee is $20 for the weekend; day fee $10. More details are on the String Theory Ithra page under “general information”. Feel free to write with any questions!
Hope to see you all at the Ithra!

This is just a reminder that our September business meeting is tonight, (9/30), at the Denny’s on 128th in South Everett at 7pm. This month, along with the updates about previous events, what to expect at upcoming events, and all the activities you can take part in between events, you can also have a chance to get to know the new Exchequer as well as learn more about the upcoming confidence polling in November!
Officer, remember that if you can’t make it, please e-mail Their Excellencies and myself in advance with your report so the information can make it into the meeting minutes.
I am looking forward to seeing everyone there!

Their Excellencies, Baron Steinolf Ketilsson and Baroness Sinéidin inghean an Bhiadtaigh of the Barony of Aquaterra have announced their intention to conduct a Confidence Polling to evaluate the relationship between themselves and their populace as directed by An Tir Law.
Polling of the populace will take place by postal service. A polling form will be mailed Monday, November 10, 2014, directly to all paid members within the borders of Aquaterra. The labels are from the SCA membership Registry and constitute proof of membership. We encourage everyone to take the time to fill out the polling form and use the enclosed, stamped envelope addressed directly to the Crown to return the form. All returned forms must be postmarked on or before Monday, November 17. All comments must be signed with both modern and SCA names to be considered. All polling documents are seen by the Crown’s eyes only and are destroyed after the decision is made. No other individuals see or retain the marked polling documents or comments – the information is strictly a communication between the individual and the Crown.
Baronial officers and members of the Sergeantry living outside the borders of Aquaterra are also encouraged to participate in the polling by requesting an absentee polling form prior to November 9, 2014 from the Aquaterra Contingency Seneschal, Dame Rosamund via email email@example.com. Please include your mailing address in your request. The form will also be mailed on November 10 and the return must also be postmarked on or before November 17. Remember to sign any comments with both modern and SCA names.
Other interested parties, including champions and participants in the Barony living outside its borders, and nonmember participants both within and outside the baronial borders, are encouraged to submit their comments to Their Majesties by email, letter or in-person prior to November 17, 2014. All comments must be signed with both modern and SCA names to be considered.
Any questions or concerns should be directed to the Baronial Contingency Seneschal, Dame Rosamund, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or to the Baronial Seneschal, Lady Sabina di Zorzi, via email at email@example.com or to either of them in person.
Lady Affrika the Strong will be your new Exchequer! We just have some paperwork to do at the next business meeting to make it official, but she has already started her training with HL Elewyn. She has a strong spirit so I believe she will be a great addition to our officer team. Thank you Lady Affrika!

As you may be aware, the Canton of Bearwood is hosting its annual Pre-Hibernation feast on Oct. 4th and in conjunction with the festivities, we are offering Ithra classes on both Oct. 4th and 5th!
What is Ithra?
The University of Ithra provides a place for those interested in Medieval Arts & Sciences to explore and further their learning. Classes range from 1 to 8 hours (most are 2 or 4 hours) and will give you just a taste of a topic to satisfy a curiosity or set a new passion alight to begin your own research journey.
Where can I find out more?
There are a couple of web sites for Ithra: the old web site at www.ithra.antir.sca.org has all the session records and information about upcoming sessions. Information about the new curriculum can be found at http://ithranew.antir.sca.org/curriculum.php.

For those of you who missed my scattered bit at Court, here is some awesome updates on Good Yule!
We are attempting something new and unique to An Tir, and Aquaterra. Our theme is 9th century Rus/Norse, and we will incorporate both historical meadhall traditions and SCA traditions. This will be something you won’t want to miss!
During the day we will have dancing taught by Master Trahearn, will have a ball before the feast!!
Pre-registration is strongly encouraged, as seating for the feast is limited, and it is first come – first served.
