On behalf of Al-Faris Mohammad, autocrat of Spring Crown Tourney

As the noble populace of the East prepare for their journey to the northern reaches of the Kingdom, we would take a moment to remind everyone to bring sturdy footwear and warm clothes to Crown Tourney this weekend.  We currently expect a beautiful sunny day in the low 50 range. (11 degrees for those wishing the Celsius equivalent).  There may be some muddy patches and small banks of snow, but the majority of the site should be dry and free of the grasp off winter.

There were visits to the site both April 16 and 24, and as you can see by pictures, one week does make a big difference.  However, please ensure you are prepared for the elements.  The Inn in heated but Court is planned to be outdoors.  We look forward to seeing everyone soon.

In Service,

Mistress Tadea Isabetta di Bruno

Addendum to Grand Council Announcement

SCA shield logoEarlier today the SCA Inc. announced the disbanding of the Grand Council.  The following additional information has been released.  “Society President John Fulton, Director Richard Sherman, and Director Andrew Coleman have been directed to investigate the creation of a new vehicle to facilitate communication between the membership and the directors that recognizes and utilizes the changes in technology, demographics and culture that have changed the way the Society conducts business in the 22 years since creation of the Grand Council.”  The announcement can be found on the SCA website here.

SCA Grand Council Disbanded

SCA shield logoThis announcement was posted on the SCA’s webpage and can be found here.

The Grand Council was formed in 1994; a time before email and social media.  There was a need then for a committee that made sure that the membership had a way to communicate with the directors on issues of importance to the SCA.  Twenty years later, members have access to the Internet and with it direct lines of communication to the directors and Corporate officers.  We know we still have problems receiving input from, and transmitting information to, the membership; but we don’t think an intermediary body provides us with the solution to these problems today.

So with thanks for the long and faithful service of the Grand Council, we have decided to disband the committee and work on new methods and approaches for increasing our responsiveness to the members of the SCA.

Board of Directors, SCA Inc

Tourney Heralds Needed

Randall of the Dark versus Gryffith FitzWilliam in the Sweet SixteenHello to the tourney heralds of the East and Tir Mara! I am Mistress Suba al-Hadid, the new Troubadour Herald, and I’m excited to work this tourney season with you! We have several events coming up in the next few months.

In two weeks, on Saturday, April 30, there will be Crown Tourney in the Barony of Havre des Glaces in the Crown Principality of Tir Mara. We’ll need a few heralds for the lists plus additional support for the shield trees. If you think you’d like to help, please reach out to me at Troubadour@EastKingdom.org. If you haven’t heralded before but would like to try, we will help train you.

Two weeks after that, Saturday, May 14, will be the King’s and Queen’s Champions of Arms Tourney in the Barony of Dragonship Haven in the Central Region. Again, we’re looking for both experienced heralds and those who want to learn.

Saturday, July 23, will be the Novice Tourney in the Shire of Rusted Woodlands in the Southern Region. This is an opportunity for less experienced fighters, fencers, and heralds to experience what it’s like to participate in a tourney. This is a great learning experience and and excellent opportunity to learn more about tourney heraldry.

I’m looking forward to meeting all of you and having an opportunity to work with you! Again, please write me at Troubadour@EastKingdom.org with any questions or offers to help!

Yours in Service to the Dream,
-Suba
