PAST EVENT REPORTS
Road to Rouen, a 14th-century themed event in New York state, was a tremendous success, with many great deeds of honor and prowess witnessed. Several Cleftlanders, including Their Excellencies, attended. Plans are being made for it to be held again two years from now.
Thanks to those who attended last weekend’s 200th Street Stroll demo and helped make it a success.
Baronial property: An inventory of baronial property is underway. If you are holding baronial property, please contact our seneschal, Lady Claricia. People holding baronial property must sign a contract, per the SCA BOD. This does not include officer regalia or items stored at the meeting site. Contracts are due to Lady Claricia by July 31.
Exchequer: We are asking for $2 per meeting, or $50 per year, to cover the cost of the meeting hall rental. The rent has increased over the years, and we had to pay for the entire month during the period when meetings were twice a month.
Baronial meetings: Meetings will be held weekly for the foreseeable future. We will move outside when the weather permits; bring lawn chairs. Set-up starts at 6:30 p.m. and the meeting starts at 7 p.m. Masks are required indoors for all Midrealm SCA activities.
