Why hold a Baronial Device Final Vote and Web Minister Election?
We recently held elections to choose Baronial officers and to decide
on a Baronial name and Device. Two devices tied. These two choices
have been conflict checked against the existing O&A, and could pass.
We also have had people volunteer for web minister, an office that
was not decided upon in the original election.
We are following the process we first used to select officers (i.e. a
general election) since we are
still in the process of creating our
governing documents. In order to help you make your decision, Device
images and candidate information is posted on the Ayreton website
Baronial Device Choices:
A: Per pale vert and azure, a laurel wreath surrounded by five 6-
pointed mullets in annulo argent.
Green on the left, blue on the right for the Chicagoland lands
abutting the lake, 5 stars for the 5 groups.
B: Per fess sable and azure within a laurel wreath Or a demi-sun
issuant from fess.
It's a black top half (ie night/beginning) with a blue bottom (for
the lake) with a sun rising out of the lake. A sun rising out of the
lake because this is where the kingdom started.
Web Minister Candidates:
• Mistress Gwenhwyvar Nocturnal (Cynthia McCowin)
• Mistress Sarafina Sinclair (Harlie Des Roches)
• Lord Angus
Fraser (Andy Otto)
