There is one candidate who has submitted a letter of intent to succeed Mistress Philadelphia, who must step down due to term limits. Vote was held and Beck of Copeland was voted in by acclamation. Mistress Philadelphia was profusely thanked for her service to the Barony.
Shire Wars Charter
No progress on the charter from the last meeting.
Chana reported that 40 new sheetwalls have been made for the camp. Portable holes are also needed. Chana will be confirming the number required to put up sheetwalls around the entire camp.
Waivers are now required at activities that involve the general public, which includes demos or events in public settings, such as Waking of the Salamander. The guidance is that if a waiver seems like it would be a good idea due to the nature of the activity, have people sign a waiver. Examples where a waiver would be required include activities where weapons might be held (let alone swung), or activities where there could be contact with hot or sharp items, potential allergens or components or ingredients that could be harmful (e.g. medieval inks, some historic food additives, etc.)
