Family Activities

Jazod: Traier went to Lord Defenders with no issues. Denny delivered it and Scott went through and straightened it out. Everything is okay. We still need insurance on the trailer for storage. It is on the Exchequers list. We get commercial insurance based on the address of storage. His Excellency requested to get it with the current address of storage and change it later if we move facilities.

Baron and Baroness
Baroness was not present.
Baron: Lord Defender was good. The food was excellent. If you missed it you missed out on a great event.

The Baron read a letter from the Seneschal stating that due to mundane life she is unable to extend her warrant for seneschal. We will be taking applications & resumes from today thru 12/1. Interviews will be in December & January. Decision will be made by 1/27/17 with the changeover at Candelmas.

Last Event –
Lord Defenders – Berwyn: Income was $910. Expenses were $1,795 for a total loss of $885.38. Everyone that attended liked the smoked pig.

Next Event –
Sergeants Trails will be at Sgt. Edmund Graham’s house. Parking is sparse to non-existent so please carpool. There is 1 candidate form BAO and 1 candidate from Wyewood. We would like to get a pavilion from the Chatelain. Please bring pop-ups if you have one. Don’t forget your chair. There will be a potluck dinner. We will have Heavy & Rapier fighting to test the candidates. Site fee is $15 with $5 member discount.

Harvest Feast – Site is amazing. Separate room for kitchen & classes. It is a 2 part kitchen split into cooking & cleaning so no one will get their head bitten off for rinsing dishes. Court will be in a separate area. We will put out a call for instructors. Would like a YAFA class

2019 Kingdom A&S was thinking about putting in a bid and wondering if the Barony would support that? The Baron supports the idea. Would like to see us start discussing it.
