Purchase of Materials
Finna has receipts for expenses for 2009. Finna has copies of all receipts and checks pertaining to the purchase of plywood, file folder boxes etc. Due to Riva's absence she has not turned in the receipt for Kathryn's file box yet.
Marcial showed his wounds left over from last Saturday's event. He regaled us with tales of the fighting and commraderie. He showed the group his authorization card.
Beltaine is coming up in 2 weeks, most of Ketelblastr plans on attending. Marcial will be on the "Wicked Side", fighting alongside Lord Allen. Group was informed of new non-member surcharge as described in Northwatch. Other events discussed were: Mermaids Attack(but is out due to our heraldry session scheduled with Her Excellency Moraig), and Wizards and Warlords, which piqued the interest of a few members. Possible road trip will be discussed further.
Ishpeming Renn FaireGoing to be held August 7th 2010, and Mira of Skerjastrond send out a Facebook heads up asking for people to go over and join them at their encampment.
The next culinary challenge is slated for June 7th. This feast will be thrown in honor of Her Excellency Moraig. The chosen theme was "Modern Made Medieval". Courses drawn are as follows:
Marcial and Kathryn- appetizer
Vara- main course
Bullwyf and Astrid-fruit/bread/cheese
Courses still "up for grabs" are: salad/veggies, though any contribution to the feast is more than welcome.
FundraiserThe group discussed weather or not to start planning the next fundraiser. The decision was to wait until things settle down a little bit.
Scattered StonesKathryn reminded everyone that May 15th is the deadline for the June edition of Scattered Stones and reminded officers about their letters to the populace She also informed the group that she was considering changing it from color to pure grayscale due to cost of ink. A paper crimper is being looked into.
NorthwatchMarcial showed his full page comic in the latest edition of Northwatch. Good job! Marcial informed the group about the lawsuit that the SCA is involved with, as it was mentioned in Northwatch.
Name and DeviceNo word yet from Beth or Ken. Marcial will ask them about it again. Marcial had brought the stylized versions of the designs to show the group, but time ran out and we didn't get a chance to look at them. He will post them up on the group website soon.
At our next Thing Ketelblastr will vote on the final device submission design. If you want to have a say please be present at the Thing.
Website SoftwareLord Forst purchased the website designing software already, though no word on whether or not is has been received. When it is, we will turn the receipt over to Lady Finna.
Individual InitativeTo help with the proposed new meeting schedule and the groups activities in general, Marcial strongly encouraged individual members to take the initiative and start their own meetings for sewing, knitting, armoring etc.
Filking AwardOn the road to THACO Lord Frost came up with the idea of Ketelblastr giving a Filking award to honor filks that we find awesome and entertaining. This can be done by viewing newsletters, paying attention at events etc. We would have to create an award to give out and follow SCA protocol for getting it approved. The group suggested we hold off on such endeavors until we are full status.
Gathering ScheduleKetelblastr is adopting a new schedule similar to Darkstone's for Things and Gatherings because as of late it has been "too much work, not enough play". It was suggested we hold 1 or 2 Things a month, and the other 2 weekends be set aside for Gatherings/A&S. The idea was warmly accepted and will be put into place immediately.
Ketelblastr's next gathering is a picnic "free for all" slated to be held at Bluff View Park in Bessemer, weather permitting. If weather should turn inclement, it will be held at Lady Finna's house. Please bring a dish to share and your A&S activites. There will be no Thing held, so come on out to the park and play!
