IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW:
Noblesse Largesse Exchange: The deadline to sign up for this gift exchange is Sept. 28. See below for details.
Baronial archery tournament postponed: Since an early sunset will prevent having the tournament on Sept. 28, it has been postponed until spring.
Site security: The electronic code that locks and unlocks the door is being changed and put on a timer. This means we cannot enter before our rental time, and everyone must be out of the building before 10 p.m. or they will be locked inside. The church has installed security cameras on both doors and the gym.
New Seneschal: Our seneschal Lady Claricia is stepping down at the end of the year. Applications for the position open on Oct. 1, and the new person will take over Jan. 1. See Claricia if you want to know more about the job.
Sept. 28: Please bring treats to share.
Arts challenge: Please display a project, in process or complete, or equipment that’s outside your “specialty.” Show the full range of your interests. More information is on the Baronial Facebook page, or see our MOAS Mistress Angharad.
Oct. 26: Halloween-themed Revel. Wear your best garb and accessorize with a mask, if you have one. Bring treats to share.
Bardic challenge: We want to hear your best spooky stories and songs. They can be period or period-ish, five minutes maximum for each performance. Keep subject matter PG. See our chatelaine Jaquelinne for details.
Cooks Challenge: Disguised Dishes
Bring a ‘disguised’ dish to the holiday: any dish parading as something it’s not. Bread bones, pies of black birds, hedgehogs of marzipan, sugar skulls- let your mind and your kitchen explore. See more details on the baronial Facebook page.
(Emails for all officers are listed on the officers page of the baronial website.)
Minster of Arts and Sciences: The Noblesse Largesse Exchange is an adaptation of a Secret Santa exchange. Each participant is randomly matched to another, and receives their info. Then they make a gift for that person, and receive one from another. Sign up deadline is Sept. 28. Here is a link to more information:
Cooks Guild: Members will practice cooking over an open fire at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 18, in Berea. The location is the same as Armorers Guild meetings. The host requires that participants be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 to attend. See Mistress Angharad for details.
Armorers Guild: This guild meets most Thursdays in Berea. The host requires that participants be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 to attend. See Baron Calum for details.
Our officers are looking for possible event sites for future events. Talk to our seneschal Lady Claricia if you have ideas.

No more masks: Masks will no longer be required for any SCA activities in the Middle Kingdom. The ONLY Covid policy still in effect is the required posting of the Society disclaimer at all in-person events and in any digital invitations for those events (Facebook events, website, emails, social posts). If you test positive for COVID-19, please do not attend meetings or events. See our seneschal Clarissa if you have questions.
Exchequer: Members are asked to donate $2 per meeting, or $50 per year, to cover the cost of the meeting hall rental.
Quartermaster: The quartermaster must be notified at least two weeks in advance if a member wishes to borrow baronial gear.
Baronial meetings: Set-up starts at 6:30 p.m. and the meeting starts at 7 p.m. We must vacate the building before 10 p.m. due to the new automatic door lock system.
