Eleanor is negotiating with Auckland museum for a special viewing of their 16th and 17thC weapons. 

Social Sunday

Start in July. 4 or 4:40 to 8pm. Has been advertised.


We're interested in having an established option for having an email-based (or perhaps skype-based) meeting in those months where we have little to discuss (e.g. no new event proposals, reports, or major decisions). Meeting in favour, seneschal will discuss on mailing list. 

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
