  Kingdom A&S – Elfsea Rocked.
4 of 5 artisans walked away with a pilgrim’s badge. 
One champion (Amaline) & two alternates (Aelfwyn and

turned in.

Have a few photographers, but need permission forms
signed and sent in.
Working out kinks in the system so people can enroll
for newsletter.
Baroness printing copies to send to the kingdom

Herald – New Herald – Lord Cathal
Just taken over, getting up to speed, will be
collecting herald library and reports shortly. 

Rapier Marshal – Reports are posted and sent to all
the proper people.
Tournament for Spring Fair is set and will be the
marshal of record, Dirk will be field marshal
Attended the private practice HL Rixende hosted on
Sunday, let her speak more about it. 

Rixende: 19 people there, 12 in armor including one
newcomer and 9 people from Steppes. 
Hosted it as a private practice to see how the format
will work, will also be moving it around to find the
best location for the highest number of people.
  Suggest trying to combine Sunday practice with
Steppes, to draw a higher number of people.  There is
a successful precedent between Stargate & Loch
Soilleir of this type of joining.  Baroness Katheryn
and B&B are supportive of idea, but want to know what
the fighters think.

She is Very concerned about appearing “Separatist” by
having a light fighter practice at the same time as a
heavy.  She is trying to find a solution to a problem.
 Not enough people are coming to fighter practice, so
trying to see if a new location and format might help.
   Hope is the heavy fighters might want to practice
at the new locations. 

Spring Fair Autocrat –
Moving smoothly along.  Web site is up and connected
to the calendar - Looks good.
Still need Gate Coordinator but some volunteers have
come forward for other posts.
Site will pick up trash if it is inside large
contractor bags.
Archery will be an IKAC tournament, also a fund raiser
shoot and children’s shoot.
A&S competition will be under Big Blue
Her Majesty should be there for Guardian of the
At Crown will extend an invitation to the Princess for
a Cadet tea, but that will depend upon her choice. 
Need format for King of Fools & Heavy tournament. 
Also might need to borrow tents from the populous for
certain activities. 

Baron & Baroness –
Planning Lots of travel, but people need to remember
to play nice, even when tired.  
Try to encourage new comers, talk to them and ask them
to help.  People often don’t know they can help or how
to volunteer, but being asked to help makes them
happy.   So don’t be shy and help out those who might

Need award recommendations!  Upcoming events: Crown,
Dragonsfire Tor and Spring Fair.
Keystone meeting will be called soon.  B&B plan to
only use Defender to make new Keystones, but need to
talk to the Keystones before then.

Need to ask Finical committee and populous about
giving more than 50% of profits from Crown to the
Kingdom.  Since the Kingdom is bleeding money, any
extra income is welcome.  Lets try to generate ideas
for fund raiser.
