Beltane Planning meeting notes from 3/29/2010

We had a total of 18 people in attendance.

     General announcement, the kitchen manager got his dates mixed up so 
we were not able to order any drinks or food there as planned. They will 
have it ready for us on Saturday, April 3rd, at 10:00am. The newcomers 
meeting will be at 1:00pm but we are going to have people there starting 
at 10:00am to work on tent painting and tent pole sorting and marking.

     Lord Vincenti and Lady Margherita conducted meeting and had site 
diagrams and event schedules ready for everyone.

     Baron Donnchadh noted that the Kingdom calendar did not show that 
Beltane was also an investiture. Ld Vincenti said that he would check in 
to it.

     Ld Vincenti noted that there were still a number of areas on the 
Beltane website that were blank and that more information was needed 
from the people that were running the activities to fill them in.

     Ld Margherita passed around a gate shift form for people to sign up 
on if they wanted to.

     The Landed Nobles Breakfast and Lunch is being run by Lord 
Christian. He still needs to coordinate with Colette and Tigernach some 
on a couple of the menu items.

     Tavern for Breakfast and Lunch is being run by Colette and 
Tigernach. The menu and pricing is almost finished and will be sent in 
shortly to have posted on the Beltane website.

     Morning Court and Investiture. Our great and illustrious Baron 
Donnchadh is stepping down after serving the barony for more than 3 
years! Our new Baron & Baroness Lord Orlando and Lady Caterina will be 
stepping up. They said that there ceremony is being organized and that 
those that will be in it are being contacted individually to make sure 
they are ready.

     Brewing Championship will be held in the Nature Center and is being 
run by Lord Matthias. Matthias was unable to attend the meeting.

     Spang Hewing / May Pole is being hosted by Lord Linus. Our May Pole 
was stolen at last year’s Beltane so Linus has secured a suitable 
replacement for this year and is looking for a long term replacement.

     Thrown Weapons will be run by Lord Ottokar our current Thrown 
Weapons Champion. He is working with our Thrown Weapons Marshal, Lord 
Vincenti, to make sure that there 3 targets this year instead of 2 so we 
can have 3 people throwing at the same time.

     Children’s & Youth Archery will be held just prior to the Adult 
Championship. All children in the Children’s category will receive a prize.

     Archery Championship will be run by our current champion Lord 
Laurence. Lord Laurence is currently working on targets and final shoot 
plans with our Archery Marshal, Lord Robert, to make sure that 
everything is ready to go.

     Celtic Games will be run by Lord Wolfgang and will include such 
things as the Caber toss and stone throw.

     Tavern Brawl will be run by our Rapier Marshal, Lord Jacques. This 
should be a fun event to watch

Details will be posted on the event website in the near future and 
Alexander is working on getting everything ready for the event. 
Alexander was unable to attend the meeting but his deputy Lord Eynon was 
in attendance for him.

     Feast, is being prepared under the direction of HL Tadhg and has a 
Roman and Italian theme flavor to it in honor of our newest Baron & 
Baroness. Recipes have been tested and taste great. The menu has already 
been submitted and is posted on the website.

     Evening Court, this will be the first full court for our new Baron 
& Baroness.

     Bardic Championship will be conducted by Lord Lucas. As this is a 
selection process and is more subjective than many of the other areas, 
our new Baron & Baroness will make the final determination on the winner 
of this competition. They have stated that they would like this to be a 
happy and cheerful event so they are looking for pieces that are happy, 
funny, and/or inspirational in nature.

     HL Tadhg’s Vigil is being hosted by Mistress Alix. Alix said that 
she has everything she needs at this time for the vigil. Tadhg will be 
sitting vigil as he prepares to enter the Order of the Laurel.

you are interested in helping her with this project please contact her
