November 2021 Business Meeting Minutes

Posted on November 17, 2021 By

Coronet’s Report – Baron Muin maqq Minain

To the People of Bhakail, its Friends, and Allies;

May this message find you all well, and in good health, and your detractors eating moldy flan, like a duck in Jerez.

This last month has been the Quiet before the Storm that is our Yule Event, here in Bhakail. I want you all to know these efforts are worth your time. These efforts will reward you, and your fellow Bhakailis, and The East Kingdom.

When you attend Yule, it will be a worthwhile event. We have spent so long apart, that gaining one another’s’ company once again will be rewarding in, and of, itself.

I wanted to take this moment, here in November, to thank you all for the work you are doing to make this event happen.

Seeing Yule come together, I’m proud of my People and my Barony.

Thank you all.

– Muin,
Baron of Bhakail

Seneschal’s Report – Honorable Lady Alesia de Maris of Ravenstar


The BOD has given more guidance regarding the checking of vaccination status. It is recommended that the list of participants be split in two alphabetically by legal last name and that two people check vaccination status. This new recommendation goes into effect on Monday November 15th. We will be using this process at Yule.

The German Society has an opening in their calendar so planning for Tavern is underway.

I wish you all a Happy and safe Thanksgiving and I hope to see you at Yule.

– Alesia de Maris

Social Media Deputy – Magister Rowen Cloteworthy

Hello to the Barony from the world of Social Media!

There were eight new subscribers to the Bhakail FB page this month. Several of them were new to the Barony and Lady Chana as Chatelaine has been put in touch with them. Minutes from last month were posted to the web when they were received. Various notices from the Kingdom and Society have been shared to FB and email.  Information on the winners of Crown Tourney this past weekend – Prince Ryou and Princess Indrakshi – was shared to FB and the email list, as were photos from the Tourney.  A new Kingdom Social Media Officer has been appointed – Lady Astrid Eiriksdottir. And that’s about all for this month.

New business

  • Yule Largess Basket – Lady Roseia Posey is coordinating a largess basket for their Majesties at Yule. Anyone wishing to contribute items, please contact Roseia.
  • New Chronicler sought – Chronicler is stepping down in February 2022, looking for a successor.

Old Business

  • Shire Wars – There was a mistake when the event surplus was divided up. 20% was allocated to the Kingdom but that new rule goes into effect in 2022 so there is a surplus of $145.71. The groups need to decide if this is to be divided between the groups (an additional $18.21 to the $485.35 (initial investment plus a share of the surplus of $582.82, $72.85 per group)).
  • Yule – Still waiting to hear back on spaces from their majesties. Reservations have been put on hold until we hear from them. Don’t know if their Highnesses will be attending. Anyone who refuses to wear a mask will be asked to leave.
  • PAX – Still a thing that’s happening. Dayna ordered the banner and table runners last week, should be delivered next week.
  • Tavern – The German Society has reserved the last Saturday in January for Tavern at the same price as in the past. The bid should be submitted this week.
  • New Exchequer sought – The Exchequer is looking for a deputy or a successor. Her term is up in June 2022.
