Greetings unto the Kingdom.

There have been many, many “interesting” things happening in the last few weeks in the East Kingdom, to quote a very wise woman.  Many tempers have become heated, while others have tried to maintain calm.

The Autocrat and staff of Birka realize that the Event this weekend provides a good place for the East Kingdom populace to come together to talk, hash things out, find out more information, or just have a good laugh.

Therefore, we have added an Open Forum for discussion of the many things going on in the East Kingdom.  This will be held on Saturday, from 8:00pm (or when Court ends) to 10:00pm, in the Armory.  It will be hosted and moderated by:

  • Mistress Katherine Barr, East Kingdom Seneschal
  • Baroness Audrye Beneyt, East Kingdom Social Media Officer
  • Master Joel Messerer, Member of EK Exchequer Council

This Forum is open to all, whether you are an SCA member or not, or a member of the East Kingdom or not.  It will be moderated in the sense of keeping it on track with pertinent discussion, and to make sure that many can have a say.  Any discussion or question is welcome, and if they can’t answer your question, we will find someone who can.

Lastly, please be aware that this Open Forum replaces the discussion that Mistress Katherine and Master Joel were going to host. It was decided that doing it later in the day provided better opportunities for people to attend and speak.  (There also wasn’t a big enough room earlier in the day.)

If you have any questions or comments about this Open Forum, please direct them to me and I will answer as I can.  😊
