Greetings unto all from Stephen Macthomas!
I know there are several of you who are reading this note and saying to
yourselves, "Hey, why am I on this list, and what's it all about?" Well, I'm
here to explain a bit.
Recently, I asked HL Pug, who controls the kingdom mailing lists, what would
be involved in starting up a Gate's Edge mailing list. I asked this because
I realized that at least four of us send mail to the canton at large on a
fairly regular basis, and that none of the four of us were working off the
same list of names. For instance, my own list didn't have Signy, Thomasina
or Thorvaaldr, Constance and Richard. (Sorry guys!)
A couple days later, I found out what was needed: some foolhardy soul to ask
the question in the first place.
So now there's this spiffy new gatesedge mailing list. It's accessible from
the Ansteorran website, so any interested party in the world can sign onto
our mailing list and catch up on what's going on in our neck of the woods.
This is a good thing. We also all work off the same centrally maintained
mailing list, so no one falls through the cracks. This is also a good thing.
Being the foolhardy soul to bring this to Pug's attention in the first place,
I'm the list administrator. This is a goo ... well, it's a thing, we'll
leave it at that.
So that should answer the question of what this list is. Now for the biggie
for a few of you: What The Heck Am I Doing On It Anyway??
That, my friends, is an easy one. At the Gate's Edge populace meeting last
night, we decided that all of our officers, their official and unofficial
deputies, acting officers and interested parties should be on this list, and
I was given permission to add those remaining names to the list. This way
all of our officers are on the same page when information is distributed
If you wish to be removed from this list, please send an e-mail to
majordomo at ansteorra.org with the words UNSUBSCRIBE GATESEDGE in the body.
You'll receive a confirmation with no further postings to this list.
Now, that disclaimer out of the way, here's what's coming up over the Edge:
This coming weekend, November 13th and 14th, is our weekend to host TRF with
our good friends at Westgate. Every interested party is highly encouraged to
come and participate. Only a couple hours of work gets you in the gate for
the day. If you'd like more info, let me know. The e-mail's
stephenmacthomas at aol.com (yep, that's new, so make a note of it). We have
chivalric and rapier prizes, but we are in need of prizes for bardic and A&S.
The northern Stargate newcomers' meetings are being held at my home on
November 18th, December 2nd and December 9th. All are Thursdays, and all
meetings start at 7:30 pm. If you need directions, drop a line. These
meetings are considered part of Stargate since we have no hospitaler in
place, but most of the newcomers will be in the Gate's Edge area. The first
meeting will be SCA 101 taught by HL Annes and Costuming taught by Lady
Angharad (Rondah). The second meeting will hopefully feature the four
aspects of the marshallate - chivalric, rapier, archery and equestrian. The
final meeting will cover A&S, heraldry, and other topics and will feature a
roundtable Q&A discussion. Everyone's invited to attend any and all
meetings, since the more contributions the better. Let me know if you have
Officers will be at my home on November 22nd. All are invited to attend or
RSVP. Please remember that food left at my home is seriously threatening my
diet, so be ready to leave with what you brought.
That's all for now - see you over the Edge!
