Amazing Announcements for the Populace – May 28th 2024

Greetings to our fair Barony and friends from Hersirkona kolfinna inn kyrra! I bring you this evening our collection of announcements made at the start of fighter practice!

  • Maker’s Night North is happening on Thursday the 30th of May, Orazio and kolfinna are hosting and have space for sewing, scribal, couch-crafting, and more. There is a cat in the house and the house has small stair steps between rooms. We would love to see you while we make things together!
  • Bardshal is hosting a summer revel on Saturday in Bastrop, TX. This will be a casual afternoon in the park. There will be space for fighting, shade for crafting, grills for cooking. I hope to see you all there for a relaxing social in the park.
  • Hellsgate is doing a demo on Saturday from 830am to 7pm at the Extremely Geeky Expo and they are looking for 7 more volunteers. They need chiv fighters, rapier fighters, and artisans who can work a 3 hours shift. If you sign up early, you can get a wristband that will let you wander the expo freely after your shift.
  • Sunday Rapier practice is scheduled for 230pm on Saturday! Join our rapier fighters for sparring in the shade!
  • Also on Sunday is an area-wide practice in New Braunfels. The Shire of Ffynnon Gath is hosting a practice at the New Braunfels Ren Faire site starting at 6pm on Sunday. They will have space for rapier, chiv, target archery, combat archery, thrown weapons, and melees if there are enough people. There is also indoor space with tables and chairs and access to bathrooms. Orazio and I plan to go. Let us know if you want to carpool or caravan.
  • Maker’s Night South will be happening on Monday from 6pm to 9pm at Cory’s house. Come craft, try out leatherworking, and hang out with other cool people from the Barony.
  • Monthly Business Meeting will ALSO be on Monday from 7pm to 830pm. We will be doing a hybrid meeting. I will be joining from Nosh and Bevvy and will have sound and Mics set up, our Seneschal Nicaize will be dialing in remotely, and we hope the Maker’s Night folks will dial in as well to listen along.
  • We are looking for a new Chivalric Officer for the Barony! It is a bittersweet announcement as our current Knight Marshal, Wilhelm, will be moving in a month and has to step down from the position. Reach out to Wilhelm if you are interested in the job or if you have any questions.
  • We are ever more urgently on the search for someone to apply for our Baronial Exchequer position. The position involves monthly submission of reports, overseeing expenses and balancing the books, submitting annual and quarterly reports, and generally being responsible for the health of our group finances and our adherence to policy. There is a handbook, training, and many people locally who can show you the ropes if you are new to the work. Please consider applying!
  • And finally, the submission deadline for the Next Edition of the Halberd Newsletter fast approaches! If you have tales to tell from events, fun recipes, historical nuggets, or even your regular monthly reports, please consider sending those to our Chronicler at chronicler@bryn-gwlad.ansteorra.org

Stay cool, stay hydrated, and stay dry in the upcoming weather. Orazio and I look forward to seeing you at one of the many activities coming up in the next week.

In service,
Hersirkona kolfinna inn kyrra Ottarsdottir
