Meeting Minutes: 16-Nov-57


 Baroness Angharad ferch Tangwystl has been selected as the next Seneschal beginning January 1, 2023. We thank Lady Claricia de la Mere for her hard work over the past years.

There will be no meetings on November 23, December 21 and December 28 due to the holidays. Meetings will resume Jan. 4, 2023.


Nov. 30:  Baronial Fencing Tournament. Each combatant will need a person to be their inspiration. Introductions and the processional will start at 7:15, with the matches starting at 7:30 p.m. Please bring treats to share. See rapier marshal Lord Reinhardt for details.

Dec. 14: Yule Revel. Activities include: dancing, caroling (music will be supplied to anyone wishing to sing some seasonal tunes) and treats to share. Bring site tokens to decorate a Yule tree.

“Cookie” Exchange: Like a cookie exchange, bring one or more entries, equivalent in effort and/or expense to a dozen cookies (around $5). For every entry you bring, you take one entry home. So, if you bring a dozen felt sewing kits, you could take home a dozen items from other people. Entries could include: A dozen cookies (because cookies are always good). A small fruitcake. A pair of beeswax candles. A stamped draw string bag. A linen napkin. Or anything else you can think of that people may appreciate. Items should arrive by 7 p.m. to be set up in the viewing area. We’ll start the selection of items to take home around 8:30.

(Note: We don’t expect every person to do every activity. It’s fine to just socialize!)


Minister of Arts and Sciences: The position is now open; the new officer will take over January 1, 2023.

Youth: The current Minister of Youth, Lord Rojhon the Wanderer, will be stepping down on January 1, 2023. The position will remain open until filled.


(Emails for all officers are listed on the officers’ page of the baronial website.)

Seneschal: The SCArs system for electronic payment for events will be discontinued. A new electronic payment system will take over in 2023; the exact system has not been decided on. If you have paid for an event using SCArs, that information will be given to event staff.

Minster of Arts and Sciences: A group will take a docent-led tour of an exhibit, “Tales of the City: Drawing in the Netherlands from Bosch to Bruegel” at the Cleveland Museum of Art on Sunday, Nov. 27.
