November 2020 Business Meeting Minutes
Coronet’s Report – Baron Muin maqq Minain
To the People of Bhakail and Our friends and allies;
We are entering the 10th month Behind the Ramparts. This world, both SCAdaiacal and Mundane, is not the world any of us have wanted. This is not the world We expected.
Having just completed Our First Court Behind the Ramparts at Our UnCommons event, we, all of us, have shown we can be more flexible and adaptable than most would have expected before this grand Embuggerance. Bhakail has shown Strength, Unity, and a Clarity of Purpose that is inspiring.
Having said that, Your Baron is not blind to the difficulty we all face. This is not an easy time. Using these methods to engage is not as easy for all as is easy for some. This certainly describes Myself. If you are experiencing these problems, please reach out.
We are here.
We are Bhakail.
Baron of Bhakail
Seneschal’s Report – Honorable Lady Alesia de Maris of Ravenstar
Greetings to the Barony. I renewed my membership at the end of October for two years. This will cover the rest of my term as Seneschal. This reminded me of the best way we can support the SCA at this time, membership renewal. If your membership is up for renewal or your membership has expired please consider renewing it. If you are in a place financially where you can’t afford to renew your membership there is help available. There is a fund that can help pay for your membership. The following is taken from the SCA letter on Membership Assistance Requests dated September 8, 2020.
If you are having a difficult time purchasing a membership, you can request assistance directly from the Corporate Office. There is no need to prove that this request is valid. No financial questions will be asked, as the request will be taken on good-faith. To do this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know that you would like to take part in this program as funds allow. Please be assured that we will treat your request confidentially.
There is no shame in asking for help. We all need it once in a while.
Please stay safe.
In service to the Barony,
– THL Alesia de Maris
Seneschal of Bhakail
