Going well. 


Drupal 7 upgrade after Fimbulwinter. Website will be unavailable for a few days. 

Bloth address redirected to Vettoria.

Past events

Good report, good event. We liked the salads.

All good. Norina liked the informal schedule - free to do what appealed at each moment, little required structure. We all liked the style of the event. Let's do this one again.

Upcoming events - already approved

Ready to go, advertising and all. Very comfortable with higher/riskier break-even - we can afford to make a small loss. Steward to make her own call. 

Nothing to add. There have been payments.

Upcoming events - proposals

  • Other - possible feast/revel in August or September
  • CF - seeking campsite steward

Nothing to add

Regular events/practices

  • Monthly A&S in June - Queen's birthday weekend - hold it the weekend after
  • Archery - going well, two venues, arrows bought

Fencing, dance (private venture), music, singing: no need to discuss presently, unless brought up at meeting.

Other business

  • Guidelines for meetings - discuss updated version and vote - what counts as quorum, who can vote, etc


Combination lock for quartermaster gear:

Quartermaster (or someone from their house) may spend up to $50 for a lock for shed; group will reimburse.

Social Sunday

Start in July. 4 or 4:40 to 8pm. Check which weekend is intended


Norina will take one to use for Archery. William will keep one for A&S. Rest to Quartermaster.

On the backburner:

  • Chatelaine gear, Loaner feast gear - cull, assemble into kits, (Eleanor, Katherina, Norina) look into bought vs made bags (Katherina)
  • Signs - William de Cameron working on bases (thanks to Willliam de Wyke for getting the bases); store one with W de C (for A&S) one with Norina (for archery)(check suitability with Isabel)
  • Container
