Congratulations King Felix and Queen Madeleina!

April A&S Challenge: Greens!

April (Virtual) Cooks Challenge:
In honor of what will CLEARLY be the last snow of the season, this month’s signature ingredient is that ever-popular medieval spring favorite: greens!

Please make a dish, medieval or not, that features some type of greens: herbs, spinach, kale, horseradish sprouts, whatever. Don’t feel the need to limit yourself to actual fresh greens: if what you have available is frozen spinach, feel free.

To participate, by April’s Revel (from Home) on April 29th, please create your dish. When ready, share pictures and info about the dish on the Baronial FB page at https://www.facebook.com/events/2723510884572217/. If you don’t have an FB account: email it to me and I’ll add it for you.

Your info should include: what did you cook, why did you choose it, what ingredients did you use, how did you cook it, and, since we can’t all taste the dishes, what did you (or anyone in your household) think of it. Would you do it again? Would you change anything?

A&S: May Cooks Meeting/Class

We’ll be holding this Guild meeting via Zoom. To avoid ‘zoom bombing’, there will be a waiting room for the meeting. If I don’t recognize the name, you won’t be let in. If you aren’t totally sure I’ll recognize the name you use with Zoom (I am, after all, pretty miserable at names), please respond to the FB event on the Barony of the Cleftlands baronial page, or email me directly, so I’ll know to let you in. (baronessangharad@gmail.com)

This will be the first Zoom guild meeting for Cleftlands, so y’all be testers for the process. My apologies for any technical difficulties.

The general consensus was that people wanted to have class more than discussion: the topic will be Flat Breads. I’m arranging a couple of people to share how they make their flatbreads: please come with questions or your own experience to share.

Pennsic War 49 Postponed

Greetings unto the populace (and friends) of the Barony of the Cleftlands. As many different sources have been reporting, We would again like to speak as the voice of the Crown and the Society to inform you, with a heavy heart, of the postponement of the 49th Pennsic Wars from 2020 to 2021. Please see the official announcements for more information about timing and potential financials ramifications.

PENNSIC 49 – COVID 19 UPDATE
24th April 2020 From the MAYOR

G’Day Everyone,

COVID-19 is touching all of our lives and at this time our primary concern is the safety and well-being of our Pennsic Attendees, Cooper’s Lake Family and Staff:, the entire Community of people in and around Cooper’s Lake Campground we interact and depend upon, and our numerous vendors who supply our event. They are all part of the “Pennsic-War-Family”.

When I took on the office of Mayor of Pennsic 49, I promised to, and was entrusted with, the welfare and safety of the entire Pennsic Family. It is therefore with great sadness that I must inform you today that, we have decided to postpone Pennsic 49, scheduled for July 24, 2020 through August 9, 2020 to July 30, 2021 through August 15, 2021.

This postponement will come as heartbreaking news to many of you – and it has been an exceedingly difficult decision for us to make. Since the first Pennsic Wars at Cooper’s Lake we have been so proud to welcome people from all over the Knowne World to beautiful lands of Aethelmarc, but this year, sadly we cannot gather together as before.

As many of you have read in my previous COVID-19 updates, the impact of this terrible pandemic has effects that reach far past just those that attend Pennsic War. I will not go into all our considerations here again, you can all read my previous two posts that outline many of the factors we considered before making this decision. However, on this one occasion the emotion of Pennsic needed to be removed and the hard decision made.

It has been arranged with Cooper’s Lake Management, that those who have preregistered for Pennsic 49 may have their registrations rolled over to 2021.
If you desire a refund, please go to www.cooperslake.com and log into your pre-registration account.

Even if we cannot be together this July, we remain optimistic that the situation will soon improve. I know we are all very worried about the impact that COVID-19 is having on our loved ones and daily lives. My Pennsic team and I send you our very best wishes. We cannot wait to share time together at Cooper’s Lake again with you all.

Yours,

Sir Gregory of Loch Swan
Mayor
Pennsic 49

Chin up, Cleftlands. You have more time to finish last year’s Pennsic projects! 💙😥💙😥💙😥💙 We look forward to seeing your progress posts soon!

Draco Invictus and Vivat^3!

Midrealm Gathering Suspension Extended

Greetings unto the populace (and friends) of the Cleftlands. We would like to highlight the words of the Heirs of the Middle Kingdom Prince Felix and Princess Madeleina as well as the Kingdom Seneschal, Master Cerridwen.

Their Royal Highnesses:
https://www.facebook.com/TRHoftheMiddle/

SCA Middle Kingdom Seneschal:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/Midrealm/permalink/10158084230006181/

Greetings to the Great Populace of the Midrealm,

It is Our, the Crown and Great Officers of State, honor to continue to protect the great Populace of the Middle Kingdom. As the pandemic continues its course, which has deeply impacted Our people and Our hearts, We must with heavy hearts do that which is needed to continue protecting Our beloved treasures.

Know here and now We here proclaim the following:

• All events (weekend events, business meetings, practices, other official SCA activity, etc.) are hereby cancelled, effective immediately through the end of JUNE.

• Crown Tournament will be postponed until later in the Reign of Felix and Madeleina. Once confirmed, the date will be announced on the Kingdom Website and Facebook.

• Virtual Courts will occur at the discretion of the Crown and announced on the Kingdom Website and Facebook. They will be streamed live on Facebook and then the recording will be made available on YouTube. Coronation is being held virtually as previously announced and will follow this format.

• Groups may participate in electronic meetings (Zoom, Google Meets, FB live, etc) for business and social purposes as long as there is no charge for members to participate.

• SMALL gatherings may be permitted that follow the CDC and state/local limits in size and requirements for social distancing, including any requirements for health and safety, such as the wearing of masks or other facial coverings.

This determination was not made lightly. However, under recent guidance from the CDC and government safety precautions, along with the very real impact to Our Populace We feel this is the best course of action for the safety of the Populace. If you’d like to see the referenced guidance:
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

As previously announced pre-registration of events through PayPal will be disabled until further notice. It is recommended that local branches stop offering a pre-registration option to avoid potential issues with refunds due to cancelled events or requests due to illness. To help ease the potential impact of these decisions, the Middle Kingdom will be making the following financial policy changes:

Local groups forced to cancel the use of a venue by government, venue, the Board of Directors of SCA, Inc. or by the Middle Kingdom: If the venue does not offer a full refund of the deposit and the forfeiture of the deposit would result in the group having a balance of less than $500 in their account, the Kingdom will assist to ensure a minimum of $500 remains in the group’s accounts for ordinary operational costs.

As aforementioned, it has been announced that all Midrealm events are cancelled until at least the end of June. Therefore, it is with a heavy heart that we honor that  request with our official announcement of the cancellation of Northern Oaken War Maneuvers.

SCA Activities Suspended (until May)

Good afternoon everyone,

The Barony of the Cleftlands is, effective immediately, suspending all activities in order to comply with the directive of the Crown and Curia of the Middle Kingdom. There will be no Meetings, Events, or Practices from now through the end of April.

We look forward to seeing you once this temporary hold on our activities comes to an end.

If you have any questions you may email me anytime. I appreciate your understanding.
Below is a message from the Middle Kingdom Seneschal. Please read the message in its entirety.

Thank you,

Cadfan of Cleftlands, APF CDB
Seneschal
Barony of the Cleftlands

Here follows the words of Master Cerridwen, Kingdom Seneschal:

Dear Children of the Dragon,

In these troubled times we seek to do our best to protect and defend.  Sometimes that means making difficult decisions for the health and safety of those that need it most.  Thus on behalf of the Crown and the Great Officers of State, hear and know the following:

• Gulf Wars has been officially cancelled.
• All events (weekend events, business meetings, and practices, etc.) are hereby cancelled, effective immediately through the end of March (updated to April).  We will evaluate the situation at the end of March to determine the next appropriate steps.

Pre-registration of events through PayPal will be disable until further notice.  It is recommended that local branches stop offering a pre-registration option to avoid potential issues with refunds due to cancelled events or requests due to illness.  To help ease the potential impact of these decisions, the Middle Kingdom will be making the following financial policy changes:

For local branches hosting events, the Middle Kingdom will assist local groups who provide site refunds to individuals who request one due to them or a family member being ill.  Such requests would have to occur on or before the event.  Policy to be re-evaluated in 60 days.

Local groups forced to cancel the use of a venue by government, venue, the Board of Directors of SCA, Inc. or by the Middle Kingdom:  If the venue does not offer a full refund of the deposit and the forfeiture of the deposit would result in the group having a balance of less than $500 in their account, the Kingdom will assist to ensure a minimum of $500 remains in the group’s accounts for ordinary operational costs.  Policy to be re-evaluated in 30 days.

It saddens us that we must make such decisions and know they are not made lightly.
