The following announcement was submitted to the Gazette:

Greetings Cousins!

For those interested in the arts and research, we invite you to join us this weekend at Aedult Swim IV [web link http://aethelmearc.org/event/aedult-swim-iv/ ] (held in the Kingdom of Aethelmearc in Milton PA on Feb 16-17). The 1st floor will be open for all disciplines with several roundtables and group gatherings – Cooking, Brewing, Herbal, Fiber Arts, and more. There will be a class on Research and Documentation by Lady Rosie Dubroc from noon – 1pm followed by the Scribal Tour Workshop.

New this year will be the addition of a Browsing Library (Coordinated by Baroness Fiadnata ó Gleann Àlainn – Royal University of the Midrealm Librarian). We encourage all who plan on attending to bring their favorite research books to share them with others.

We are a Society that believes in researching and in recreating our findings to the best of our ability. Collectively, we have built up an amazing collection of private libraries in our homes. We invite all of you to bring out some of these books to share with a wider audience so that other researchers (especially those who may be new to research in a particular field) can become aware of all of the resources that are around them. Bring out your favorite sources so we all can benefit from them!

We hope to see you there. Garb is not required but warm clothing is highly encouraged!

Message from the Fundraising Deputy of the Signet

Sir Edward MacGyver dos Scorpus brings us information about scribes of the East and how to help them continue to make individualized masterpieces. Please contact Sir Edward through Facebook message to his mundane name (Edward Kurasz) for more information.

Good Morning wonderful people of the East, 

I would love to take a minute and thank and recognize all the scribes out there. We just had one of our largest events, are you aware of all the scrolls that went out at Birka? With event season about to come into full effect with the wonders of spring, thinkabout all the scrolls about to go out.

We of the East Kingdom are extra privileged, A wonderful scroll is created for almost every award or piece of business conductedduring courts. 

We have many wonderful new scribes who have jumped up to help meet these challenges, if you or someone you know who might be interested, you would be more then welcomed. Many Kingdoms don’t offer this.

Scribes spend countless hours, days, and weeks preparing, drafting, and creating wonderful pieces of art that only a few people will ever see. Although Scribes do get a certain high, hearing the OOOOss and AAHHHHHss when the scroll is shown during court, many scribes never see their work go out.Those shinny bits and pieces, Scribes pay out of their own pocket to make scrolls, scroll paper/ vellum, paints, brushes, inks, calligraphy pens, and Gold and Silver, Yes!! Real Gold and Silver are added….

Folks often send out thank you notes and emails, but have you ever thought of how you could show your appreciation? Some people have offered donations of crafts, gifts, or other ways of appreciation “No Money Please! The Scribes often get together for meetings, classes to improve their skill, and other functions. We have organized a Scribe chest for gifts…and nobody wants to see a running of the scribes…that would just be ugly. If you would like to donate or help out, please feel free to contact me, or stop by and see me or other Signet officers at an events. 

I am acting as the fundraising Deputy for the Signet. 

Thank you again Scribes

Important Information Regarding the Crown Tournament Venue

Tags

Unto all who would travel South for the Spring Crown Tournament to be held in Harrington, Delaware; the Shire of Caer Adamant sends greetings. Our State is small and The Crown tournament will be held just 30 minutes south of the Delaware capital where Nascar weekend will be in full swing. Please be aware that extra travel time should be budgeted due to traffic congestion. For this reason, hotels in the area are also quite full, and all who are coming to the event are very strongly encouraged to call this week and book early at local venues, or book online where rates are often better.

If you are flying into the Philadelphia Airport, please consider booking a room in the Christiana or Newark, Delaware area. This is about an hour north of the event site, and will ensure that you do not encounter race traffic when leaving your hotel on Sunday to catch the plane home.

We do not currently have a block of rooms saved, but are working on this, and should have information out mid next week. There is abundant space at the event site for both RV’s and tent camping. If you are interested in camping, please keep an eye out on the event announcement next week. A code will be available to those who wish to camp on site in “The Grove” at the Delaware Fairgrounds, which can be used on their website. Camping is $35 per person a night, and the site has great amenities. (A nice wash house with showers, ice skating, and ice bumpercars). There is also camping just north of the event at Killens Pond State Park, and booking is available online.

For those interested in staying with a local, please reach out to Baroness Amarie de St Denis, who is coordinating our local “crash space.”  

Crown Tournament is being held at a 40 Thousand square foot Pavilion with open sides, a Concrete surface, and easy access to restrooms and showers. It is ADA accessible and has ample parking. The site is discreetly damp.  If you are traveling by car, please remember to bring chairs.

We look forward to bringing you more information, and answering any questions in the coming weeks.

With Best Regards,

Shoshana Gryffyth

Gulf Wars: Known World MoAS Summit

Tags

The Known World MoAS Summit will be held on Thursday (March 14th) at Gulf Wars in the al-Mahala encampment starting at 5:00 PM.

Officially the summit starts at 5:00 PM but that will coincide with most Kingdom-level courts. During the first hour or so, the Society Sciences MoAS Deputy will hold a round table discussion about “What counts as science versus art and where is the crossover between the two.”
Afterwards, there will be a meet-and-greet with the Society MoAS (while we wait for some other courts to finish up).
About 7:30-8:00ish, there will be a round table on what people would like to see in a Society MoAS Handbook.
At the same time, there will be a breakout group holding a discussion on how to incorporate early period and non-European A&S with several specialist speakers.
Other breakout groups can be held throughout the summit, especially during the meet-and-greet and some Kingdom A&S Officers may use this opportunity to touch base with their officers to see how the War has went for their Kingdom.
