840Re: [Ayreton] Re: Mayors Offfice of Special Events ?
- Mar 28, 2007Greetings!Back in time, the Lord Mayor's Office for Special Events made announcements and helped people and groups ... "arrange things" ... if there were a new office-holder or political appointee, the LMOfSE would publicize it. If there were an event, it would be announced; if there were a need for the populace to cough up... I mean, to supply a person or thing (list ropes, Marshal, etc) the the call would go out. Sort of like the Towne Cryer, but more Chicago-like. None of it done by the Lord Mayor, of course, that was the LMOfSE, with help from longshoremen Guido and Rocco, who are adept at interpersonal attitude readjustment.Is mise le meas,Alexander de Seton

I think Meurig must have it in for me. :-)
Likely not though.
As a member inside of Ayreton I think these ideas have merit and we
should discuss them. I do very much like the ideas on a personal
As the Towne Cryer...
My job at this point, as I see it, is to keep people informed about
the activities, demos and events in the area that I have been ASKED
to make announcements about.
While this is a passive receiving role - I don't announce anything
that I haven't been explicitly asked to announce - It is a very
active sending role. I try to make the announcements once a week but
as we all know I sometimes spread out the announcements for a bit
That happens because of real life and other SCA obligations. I am
more than happy to continue in this role but for me personally I
simply can not pick up any more duties because of real life and
previous SCA obligations.
So if this is something that we as Ayreton agree to do and have,
great! But, I simply would not do a very good job at it as I could
not pay it the attention it would most assuredly deserve.
Any ideas on what this Office of Special Events should do?

better way to show our unity by walking together under one banner.
(There is a parade at Jubilee, perhaps we could plan on designing a
banner and regalia)
