Hello everyone, Alan McGuire here. Most of ya'll know me, others don't. Just 
a point I wanted to remind people of, this weekend I am hosting the Pente 
tourney. I have a couple of prizes, if anyone wants to donate a prize, I 
would appreciate it. Also, if we need a hospitaler, I am up for the job. I 
used to have a newbie house as it was, way back when......Oh those were the 
days. Just wanted to toss my hat in the arena. If someone wants to talk with 
me, my email is listed on this message, of course I will also be at Faire 
this weekend. My hiatus away from the SCA is over, I am back and in full 
force, knees willing LOL

Until further days, Alan

>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, 
>here to explain a bit.
>Recently, I asked HL Pug, who controls the kingdom mailing lists, what 
>be involved in starting up a Gate's Edge mailing list.  I asked this 
>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 
>the question in the first place.
>So now there's this spiffy new gatesedge mailing list.  It's accessible 
>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

>Being the foolhardy soul to bring this to Pug's attention in the first 
>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 
>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, 
>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 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 
>our good friends at Westgate.  Every interested party is highly encouraged 
>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 (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

>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 
>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.  
>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
>any questions.
>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 
>diet, so be ready to leave with what you brought.
>That's all for now - see you over the Edge!
>In your service,
