Old Business

    • HUGE thank you to Gisela
    • 183 total attendees, 124 feast; both numbers are under break-even number, but all came in under budget; should have made some money

September 2018 Business Meeting and Officer Reports

Old Business

Open Positions

  • Chronicler position open, only Cailin running for it.  After a vote, Cailin was voted in, will start next month
  • Chamberlain position is open, only one candidate put in a petition.  We will not vote without them there, and that person still needs to put in a letter of intent.  If you are interested in the position, please put in a letter of intent to the Seneschal

New Site for Meetings

  • Stage One will be closing before the end of the year, so we need new a new site for meetings, heavy fighters, and rapier
  • Please start looking around for other options, email suggestions to Seneschal
  • We can find a social space without the fighters
  • We can hold fundraisers for the site fee if we find it to be high
  • The idea was brought up that it is ok to hold social in someone’s home, but having a neutral space makes it easier for newcomers to feel welcome
  • Elanora has a lead at Broomall library, but libraries may close their meeting rooms early

Tavern 2019

  • Bid submitted by Chana, with dayboard provided by Maryna
  • Bid will be reviewed by council of exchequer

Yule 2018

  • Still need championship info before putting up event announcement
  • Paypal link is live
  • Menus are still under construction: Jibril’s dayboard will be Turkish/Arabian, and feast will take us across the trade route from India, southeast Asia, Persia, and Italy
  • Event is now opposite of K&Q Rapier, so we’re anticipating a loss in attendance
  • Member cost will be $18, non-member $23, and feast is $12

Zip Code Committee

  • Official proposal from the Bailiwick – asking the Barony to turn over 5 zip codes to the Bailiwick (19123, 19131, 19146, 19148, 19151
  • Hartshornedale and Buckland Cross have not reached out to us
  • Martyn will draw up a new map

Bylaws Committee

  • Defunct because the chairperson resigned
  • Closer to Yule, Mael Eoin might “refunct” it – we need to review the bylaws eventually (it’s in our bylaws to do so)

Champions and Commons

  • Bhakail has new champions and so does Hartshornedale!
  • There was so much food
  • 88 people, 12 minors, and we made about $35
  • Of note for next year – we need a permit to use that site for fighting, as we are hosting a “sporting event”.  This permit costs $25 and can be obtained in person or over the phone
  • Ysmay will happily talk to people who are interested in running this event next year to let them know about it

Pennsic

  • Two major issues – charging and cleaning up
  • CPAP machines cannot be charged in our charging station – it trips the breaker, so no one else’s things can charge.  All CPAPs need to be registered through Disability so you can be assigned a charging space
  • Lots of trash at the end
  • People need to take responsibility of their own things in common areas
  • Maybe have a common space that’s labeled as such?  A table or a shelf for things that people donate to common?  How to police it?

River Wars

  • Bhakail will hold a Thrown Weapons Championship
  • If you want to camp as a group, let Master Collin Monroe know, give him tent info
