Hi folks,

I am not going to be able to make it to Bryn Gwlad's archery practice  
today in Austin.

Yesterday I fell on a stairway while leaving a movie theatre, and  
tumbled down 3 to 4 steps, landing on my left knee, my forearms, and  
my head. I'll be all right with some rest, but my left knee is pretty  
sore, and it would be advisable to stay off my feet as much as I can  

My assistant, Patrick, will probably still be there to supervise the  
range for an **unofficial** practice, but anyone who has targets that  
they can bring should do so, since I am the one who usually brings out  
the targets.

By next week my knee should have recovered. Hope to see you all then.


I am still seeking applicants for someone to take over the office of  
Archery Marshal for Bryn Gwlad. I have served for two years, and due  
to outside commitments I need to reduce the amount of time I am  
spending each weekend running the practice sessions. The archers of  
Bryn Gwlad are a fine group of people, with between 10 and 20  
individuals who will show up every week that a practice is offered. If  
we don't get a new archery marshal before the end of May, their  
official weekly practice sessions will have to be suspended.

The person who takes the job needs to be warrantable as an SCA Target  
Archery Marshal. (Paid member of the SCA in good standing, and over 18  
years old). It isn't difficult to learn how to safely supervise an  
archery range, and an applicant could get warranted after they start,  
with myself and Patrick and some of the other warranted marshals  
assisting until the new officer gets their card. While we are  
currently doing a practice session every Sunday, the new marshal could  
choose another schedule that matches with their availability. Having a  
large vehicle available for transporting targets and loaner gear is a  
good thing, but is not vital. A passenger sedan with an empty trunk  
and back seat is enough cargo space to haul enough gear for a very  
good practice session.

Applicants should send a letter of intent to the Seneschal, the Baron,  
the Baroness, and myself.
