Good morning Bordermarch,

I am bit saddened right now because I did not wake up in time to watch the Royal wedding this morning; I do hope I can live with the emptiness that now weighs heavy on my heart!

During last night's Populace a few things previously known only to a select few were finally laid out bare for public pondering and speculation.

First of all I'd like to thank HE Dona Leah for revealing to the group that the large camp kitchen she has been secreting away for her personal use these last few years will finally be at our disposal should we need it for our Baronial event, or maybe even at the Ansteorra Heraldric/Scribal Symposium; she is such peach!

As per Lady Jillian's previously posted email, it was announced that Lady Cymme & Lord Slovacek's devices passed. When the announcement was made the room virtually erupted with jubilant joy, and every eye in the room, even the eye of the guy in the bathroom, was wetted with tears.

Lord Jacob Rot Ross Templin continues his quest to design the perfect portable shower. His journey has led him to Home Depot and all the other Big-Box stores in the area. We are all waiting with wetted lips for a scaled prototype.

HE Therese, our Treasurer, has balanced the books and finished her reports. With help and guidance from Lord Thomas, the Treasurer office's new lap-top computer has been ordered. HE Therese will soon be able to discard the baronial abacus and move into the 21st century.

Lord Chrestien Brule brought his new welded chainmail shirt for the Show-and-Tell portion of the populace meeting. It appeared very well made and was lighter than one would expect a mail shirt to be. Without realizing it he may have stumbled onto a new fashion trend for the light fighters in the group.

Sir Simonn talked about the Last Days of Christ demo, and it seems it was very well attended. The demo was a introduction to the SCA for several potential newcomers.

Although not present, Lady Angelica our Hospitaler, was represented by Countess Tessa, the Coastal Regional Hospitaler. Countess Tessa said Lady Angelica was doing an outstanding job, her reports are turned in on time, and her New/Old articles which are printed in the Trumpeter every month are being well received by others in our fair Kingdom. Keep up the good work Lady Angelica!

HE Don Armand was not present, but his most favorite cadet, Lord Nikolai, was.
Lord Nikolai and Lord Malcolm are the Autocrats for this year's baronial. Lord Nikolai gave a stellar report to the populace on all the happenings pertaining to the event so far.
Last year we had about 50 or more Bordermarchers at our baronial event and this year, with Crown attending the event, we'll need that same number and more to help spread the work load. Contact the autocrats to see where they could best use your help during the event.

Lady Jillian came through once again and provided the populace with some homemade garlic bread and a heaping bowl of a smooth hootis spread that was judiciously infused with secret herbs and spices. It all disappeared in short order.

Lord Biau, our extreme leader of our Scribal Guild, has offered to move the scribal classes now being held on every other Sunday to a time slot that would be more convenient for attendees. Every other Friday was thrown out there as a possible date and it was well received. Since we'd like to get some more input pertaining to the date change of the classes, please contact Lord Biau or someone else and let them know what you think about it.

HE Elisabeth and me, Sir Simonn and Countess Tessa, M'Lord Atli Karlsson, Lord Chrestien Brule and the kids, HE Dona Leah, and-----you fill in your name here---- will be attending the Shire of Blackmoor Keep's Forest Maiden event in Lake Charles this Saturday, that's tomorrow.
Since it's such a short drive, about an hour from Beaumont, we'll be arriving at site early. We plan on sitting around in the shade doing nothing except eating some green grapes.
HE Dona Leah will be running the rapier scenarios and Lord Chrestien Brule will be helping. If you can only come out for but a few hours, come on down! Eat some grapes with us. Watch the fighting. Maybe we'll see a Chupacabras chasing a goat!
Contact me if you need directions, but since I usually get lost going to events, you might do better getting directions from their website, just type into Google, "Blackmoor Keep Forest Maiden" and that should get you there.

Don't forget about the Heather Dale concert at our house 110 Dawn Dr. in Silsbee Tx. on May 2, this coming Monday. It's open to everyone. Contact me if you need directions or some other info.
If you type in our address on your GPS or a Google map you only get as far as our mailbox at the top of the hill. Continue straight down the hill, around the corner, past the red barn, and on to the our yellow house at the end of that driveway.

HE Santiago
