4 June 2014 — With Shire Meeting Notes

The TWII has a presentation for Their Majesties.

Upcoming Events:

June Shire Meeting

  • Officer Report (Webmaster): Lord Magnus is updating the officer rolls on the website.
  • Officer Report (Exchequer): We have money. We need to track down the event report from Filthy Dirty Collegium; Gwen and Mora will handle that.
  • Officer Report (A&S): Last month was a Period Food class and Brew Day. June 29th should be Pentathlon Q&A with Mistress Caterucia. June 28th is a silk banner painting class in Darach. July may have another Brew Day. If you want other classes, talk to Gwen and she can find someone to come up here and teach it.
  • Officer Report (Chatelaine): Nothing to report.
  • Lady Gwen is spearheading the Shire’s presentation to TRM Agrippa & Bridget at their first court. If you have something to be given either as a personal gift to Their Majesties or something to be used as largesse during in the reign, let her know right away.
  • There is a Dirty Dozen Donation Derby at Coronation. Artisans have been asked to donate twelve things for use by Their Majesties as largess. Please go by and vote for what you think is most awesome. More details —
  • Carreg Wen will be borrowing our eric poles for Queen’s Champion. Lodovico will coordinate with Sir Edward Oakenheart about it. He will also bring the Blob to QC.
  • Graham is moving to the Bay Area at the end of June, so we need to relocate the shed and its contents. Lord Lodovico is willing to hold things temporarily if need be, but he doesn’t want his garage to become the permanent location. The plan seems to be to move things to Lodovico’s garage ASAP with the likely next step being to move the shed/a new shed to Lady Delphine and Constanza’s. Lodovico will be finding out Graham’s availability to see when we can come and get everything.
  • Fighter Practices will shift to summer schedule on June 18th. Practices will be held in Girsh Park at the corner of Phelps and Pacific Oaks. Start showing up at 6 PM; the 6:30 PM published time is when we intend to be in full swing.
  • Gwen is the new Isles Campmaster for GWW. If you are planning on camping with Isles, please register soon and let Gwen know.
  • Isles Anniversary is coming in November.  Paul has agreed to be the event steward. If you have opinions about what we should do, talk to him.
