Curia – November 2019

There will be no social next month. The curia will be held at Tayla’s place. Check the Facebook group for details and location. There will be a white elephant gift exchange – bring a present worth no more than $25.

Seneschal : There was a training in Seattle on 11/17. Society’s stance on marijuana now follows local law. Society has declared that a contender for Crown must have a consort with no indication as to the gender of that individual.

Exchequer : There was training on 11/16. We need to rewrite the financial policy in line with the Society’s boilerplate text. The check for the 11/2 event site has cleared. We have money in the bank and expect to have more when company matching money comes in.

Arts & Sciences : There is a social next Monday, 11/25 at Kingsgate.

Webminister : The Kingdom Webminister has suggested that branches move their websites to the Kingdom servers to cut down on hosting costs, as the Kingdom has plenty of server space. We decided to hold off on that move until the Kingdom servers become more stable. The O365 officer accounts only come with the online version of the Office suite and do not allow you to download the desktop versions.

Archery : Margaret has talked to the people at Carnation Farms about renting the flat barn. There is a proposed site walk through on 11/23 with Kit, Simon, Ema, Tim and Avine to discuss feasibility.

Sven’s Harvest Games and Dance : The event went well, with 26 people signing in at gate. Stu won the croquet championship with Tayla and Heilyn tying for second. Giselle won the wicket making contest.

Curia – September 2019

Seneschal : Handled out the ‘change of office’ form for Arts and Sciences so Tayla can be warranted. There is a new procedure for creating Facebook events for branch events. On Nov. 17th, there is an all day Seneschal training in Seattle.

Exchequer: We have money. Exchequer has found the online account password. The payment for the website is due.

A&S:  There is a social on Monday. Recommendations were collected for the Porte Chalice, which will be awarded at the Nov. 2nd event. Those not present at the meeting can submit their recommendations to the Baron and Baroness of Madrone.

Webminister: The Kingdom Webminister is looking for a deputy to train as her successor. There was a meeting at September Crown that focused on making the branch websites more accessible and readable to everyone (e.g. meant for more than ‘where is the fighter practice’). The Canton website has been updated along these lines. The previous curia minutes have been posted.

Heraldry: No commentary meeting this month.

Events: The event is in the October Crier calendar. The Baron and Baroness of Madrone will be holding a small court to award the Porte Chalice and a few baronial awards, as well as accepting Sergeantry applications. The first of two wicket making socials is this Monday – rules for the tournament will be posted soon. The potlatch sign up will be posted after Emprise. Gera created the Facebook event.

Archery: Adrianna can no longer be the driver of archery at Carnation Farms, and Margaret will be the point of contact for the questions asked last Curia as soon as Emprise is over.

Meetings: We briefly discussed the meeting/social schedule for November and December. November will probably follow the normal schedule.

Curia – October 2017

Seneschal: Nothing new in Seneschal land

Exchequer: We have some money, Have a bill to pay Domain Fee $15.00. Payment approved by financial committee.

A&S: Will be bringing a larger laptop screen to look at period tropical prints for the “Tropical themed event” in the concept stage at this time.

Herald: Will be doing YAFA classes when approved by Kingdom. Tuesday Library will continue.

Website: Meeting minutes have been uploaded to website as they are received.

Holiday Party: On December 29 at Tayla’s. No meeting in December. A Pirate gift exchange will happen no more than $20.00 for gift. Details will be following.

    NMS report was not needed for Demo, because there was no gate fee.
  • Saturday in the Park in Sven Demo: The demo brought some folks from the area.
    32 SCA people went through gate. Sarah Pixie had folks who signed the kid fighting waivers.
    People who came looking for us, were going to find us again and about 1/3 of folks who walked through may show up again.
  • Still don’t have a rapier new champion.
  • Website:  converted to WordPress, looking for email address concealer. All of the old files are still on the server in case they are needed for any recovery in the future.
