Officer’s reports


Most of you have in your hands the ballot for the poll for coming out of incipiency. It has to IN HER HANDS by April 15th. Not Postmarked - IN HER HANDS by April 15th. All votes must be returned even if you are asbstaining and even for children's votes which do not count toward the voting but which DO count towards the response rate. We have the letter from Brigantia certifying that we have a registered name and device. We need that, the poll results, a letter from each of the four officers recommending advancement accompanied by proof of membership, and a similar letter from the Baronial Seneschal, who is working on it. We are moving forward full speed ahead on this.


We have $768.48. Still. The finance committee will most probably approve the expenditure of $10.25 for postage for the polling for incpiency.


Middletown Family Pride Day is May 10th. If we do a market day demo again with crafts and whatnot we should be able to pull together a demo in a month and a half. Go ask people now!! Planning to post as an event announcement to EK website to draw more attendees. The event is free.


We have restarted A&S nights on Thursdays we've had two meetings and we're doing riviting - Muin makes this hopping fun. We are doing cool things. Next Thursday (next week) 1st and 3rd thursdays are A&S nights. We had a new person come and she's hooked. We did riveting riveting and fabulous fibulae, and next we'll be doing vykkingeschmiekkar (wire weaving).

I would like to have an A&S project for the incoming king and queen - they'd like to have gifts to give to other kingdoms. They'd also like to see more of the blue tyger badge for the kingdom. We'd like to have a workshop. Robin is making silicon molds and doing two-part resin casting. If Elenora makes a master out of fimo clay then we can make a mold and turn out several tokens. Muin has been teaching us how to make fibulae which make great cloak clasps from which we can hang the tyger tokens. Elenora will schedule the workshop and notify everyone.

Wood shop will start in spring.

A&S Night is on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of every month from 7pm - 10pm at Lady Elenora's.

Bhakail Garb workshops are still 2nd and 4th Tuesday nights in nearby Clifton Heights. Lots of people attend.

Dance Practice Monday nights. We have space! On April 2st we have a visiting dance master (Justinian), for which we will put out flyers, posters, etc as part of our recruiting plan.
