Will you be at populace? You should. I would like to put out a thought for consideration and discussion.
There are some critical issues impacting the health and well-being of our Barony...
It has become critically hard to find replacements for any and all of our required offices (Seneschal, Treasurer, Hospitaler, Chronicler, Herald, A&S and/or Marshal (Rapier and/or Chivalric). That is 7-8 officers.
It has become critically hard to find ER deputies for any and all of our required officer (Seneschal, Treasurer, Hospitaler, Chronicler, Herald, A&S and/or Marshal (Rapier and/or Chivalric). That is 7-8 ER Deputy Officers.
It has become critically hard to find folks to Steward and/or Cater our required Baronial events. 2 Events.
It has become critically hard to find folks to Steward and/or Cater our additional Baronial events. 1-2 events.
There is a lot of officer hat passing; one officer stepping down only to take up a new office because no one wanted to take it.
Let's do the math. 7 required officers + 7 ER Deputies to those officers = 14 officer. Plus 2-3 Stewards + 2-3 Caterers.
Sooooooo.....here is the question. Take a deep breath.
Has the time come to pack it in and move from Barony to Shire. If you do this you are only required to fill 3 offices; (Seneschal, Treasurer, and one of the following Herald, A&S and/or Marshal (Rapier and/or Chivalric).
If you do not think we should become a Shire, NOW is time to step up and take an office or a ER deputy position. I did my part. Aside from my duties as a Director on the Board of SCA, Inc., yesterday I spoke with Wissa to become one of her Knight Marshal Deputies. I also pledge to put my application in for that office if and when it opens up fo apps.
What office will you take?
Or should we become a Shire?
See you next Tues for a lively discussion. Please come. If you only come once per year, come to the next populace.
