Thank you for a wonderful Coronation

Thank you for a wonderful coronation, in general everyone I talked to was pleased with the day and I know the staff of TRM was very pleased with the site, and everything put together.

For the folks I didn’t get the name of either, in the kitchen, running gate,pulling trailers, helping with cleanup and in general making the event run thank you.

Thank you to the staff of the event, your work places the Shire and the SCA in a good light. I do know the Church folks were very impressed with the event, and how we left their facilities and would love to have us back for another event.

To the major positions at the event, thank you for the work that you did and coordinating folks to help out,

Dep. Autocrat: Baroness Medhbh inghean Ui Cheallaigh

I’m going to give Simona a special callout for doing an excellent job running a kingdom event for the first time. Thank you.

We’ll discuss the event at the next business meeting (the 15th) but I expect we won’t have all the paperwork wrapped up so we’ll debrief it in may as well.

As a final plug we are always looking for more officers See this page for open positions. https://quintavia.eastkingdom.org/shire-officers/

A final thank you for making my job at seneschal easy.

Officers!

Hi,

I like to take a moment to thank the officer’s and deputy officer’s in the Shire.  These people do the yeoman’s work in making the practices and gatherings in the Shire happen, and without them we would all be in a lesser place in terms of what we get out of the SCA.  Vivat!

A listing of the current officers and their deputies can be found here. The Shire is large and active as can be seen on the practice listing page. and it is due in large part to these folks making the Shire function. Saying that we do have some open positions and/or officers who are in a current position that need to step back. If you are interested in any of the open / looking for replacement positions, or want to ask what the office entails please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. We also have an archive of all the business meeting minutes for the last few years, that is also a good place to learn more about what the various offices entail.

Thank you,
Matthias

Dance Practice!

Welcome to March, everyone! We have one dance practice before the Black Rose Ball, so you know you want to come to this one 🙂 Practice runs 7:30-9:30pm, in the Camelot Common House.

(By the way, the results of the survey indicated that there wasn’t another day, time, or frequency that was better than the current schedule, so we’re sticking with this for now. Thanks to everyone who responded, we may run it again in a few months to see if things change.)

 

There is a dinner (not part of the practice, but folks are welcome to come) being prepared beforehand by Matthias starting at 6:00pm.
Dinner is $5.

3 Meat Crock Pot Dishes (pulled pork, chicken, beef)  (Vegetarian/Vegan available on request)
Salad
Bread
Mystery Dessert
