Welcome to our Kingdom!
Their Sylvan Highnesses Prince Titus Scipio Germanicus and Princess Anna Leigh
A Missive from Their Royal Majesties of Æthelmearc:
Greetings From Their Majesties Sven and Siobhan,
Æthelmearc, rejoice, for Spring has arrived! The icy winds of the Ice Dragon have faded, and Spring is in the air. Flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, and camping weather is upon us!
We have already seen this at Our Blackstone Raids, in April, where the weather was beautiful, and the sun shined all day. Our cousins from the Midrealm brought a mighty force to the field and We were proud to see Our army doing their best to bring honor and glory to Æthelmearc.
Luckily, we have yet another opportunity at War Practice to dust off the winter chill and practice our melee skills before the Tyger of the East comes to Our lands in August.
With Spring also comes change, and Our Kingdom is no different. At the writing of this missive, Crown Tourney has yet to pass but looking at Our Crown list of combatants and consorts, rest assured Æthelmearc, we will be in good hands.
And looking to the future, We would like to announce that at Pennsic, Æthelmearc’s court will be from 6 pm – 9 pm on Tuesday, August 7th and the Kingdom party will be on Thursday, August 9th, from 8 pm – 10:30 pm. We hope to see many of you at both.
As a closing thought, We ask that you take the time to thank all the scribes and calligraphers who volunteer their time and talent to give away pieces of art to, at times, complete strangers, all for the love of the Kingdom. We, for one, are much appreciative, and Our kingdom is richer for them.
We hope you all have a glorious Spring and We look forward to meeting you all on Our travels.
Ad Gloriam Æthelmearc!
King Sven and Queen Siobhan
From the Kingdom Seneschal, Duke Christopher:
Great officers— About half of have communicated to me regarding the state of your Policies. Please make sure that the policies for your office are in line with the Society Governing Documents and forward them to me so that I may review them and present them to the Crown. If you have done this within the last two years, please let me know as well.
Seneschals– there have been revisions to the Society Seneschal policies. Please make sure that you have the most current version of the Seneschal Handbook from the Society for your reference. Also, long these same lines, please remember, that if you are having an event, that you MUST post the SCA bullying and harassment policy.
From the Society Minister of Arts & Sciences:
Greetings from the Society Minister of Arts and Sciences,
I am looking for bids for the following events for 2019 & 2020:
• Known World Arts and Sciences Symposium
• Known World Brewing Symposium
• Known World Cooks and Bards
• Known World Costuming Symposium
• Known World Dance and Music Symposium
• Known World Fiber Arts Symposium
• Known World Metal & Glass Symposium
Information for submitting bids can be found here: http://sca.org/officers/arts/
I’m also not opposed to breaking some of these up or other combinations. I know that Costuming has been combined with Rapier several times and that Dance hasn’t always had Music attached to it. If you have other disciplines that you’d like to submit for, I’m good with that too (except Scribal because that’s included with the Heralds on an annual basis).
Deadlines: For any Known World event in 2019, the deadline is July 31, 2018. For any Known World event in 2020, the deadline is December 31, 2018.
Yours, in Service & Art,
Seigneur Etienne Le Mons d’Anjou
(Richard A. Le Mons)
Society Minister of Arts and Sciences
