At the last business meeting, we decided to hold an election for a new Seneschal. This election will be held on July 7.
If you are interested, you are welcome to comment here. So far, Douglas Hizer has volunteered.
Here is a partial list of requirements:
-Must be an SCA Member in good standing.
-Will be expected to lead meetings.
-Must submit insurance for Shire events.
If you decide to submit a nomination for Seneschal, it is strongly suggested you attend the July 7 meeting. If you wish to vote, but will be unavailable on that day, you may submit your vote to Lady Mary Mary Welker on July 6 by private message.
This is your chance to have your voice heard to determine the future of the Shire.
See you then!
Yours In Service,
Greetings! After 465 days, 20 hours and some minutes (yes, I checked) we will be having official fighter practice again! *celebratory noises*
Fighter practice will be held on Mondays and Fridays.
The first Monday practice will be June 28 at 6:30 PM at Iverson Park in Stevens Point. Address: 4601 WI-66, Stevens Point. Lord Grayson (Jerry J. Chubb) will be hosting. This will be the site for Monday practices.
The first Friday practice will be July 3, at the home of Lord Justinian (Martin 'Justinian' Wissmueller) at 6:30 PM. Martin, if you wish to post your address, please do so in the comments.
They will run until 10 PM or dusk.
As always, practices are subject to weather conditions and attendance.
It's finally time to scratch that fighting itch...
Yours In Service,
As most of you are aware, Baroness Alex (Terri Harteau) has recently been in a major car accident with Baron Janvier (Steven M. Harteau). Because of the future challenges that will presented by the recovery from this accident, Alex has thought it prudent to step down from the office of Seneschal. It has been communicated to me that her wish is for the Shire to vote on a new Seneschal.
There was a virtual Shire meeting tentatively scheduled for Monday, June 14, at 7 PM. This meeting will go forward. Lady Mary (Mary Welker) has volunteered to run the meeting on Zoom.
We will be discussing Shire business, as previously planned. We will also be discussing the method of choosing the new Seneschal. We will NOT be selecting a new Seneschal at this meeting.
That being said: if you are interested in the position, you *must* be at this meeting. It should be noted that the Seneschal will be expected to schedule future meetings and set agendas for them, among other things. Please contact me by PM for more information if you are interested.
Again, we will not be selecting a new Seneschal at this meeting. We will determine a fair method of selecting one at a future meeting.
Finally, I hope you will join me in wishing Baroness Alex and Baron Janvier a speedy recovery.
Pedro de Benavides
