- With so many new people around the Chicagoland area, I figured I would
pass this survey on.

Subject: Survey for New Members; Gold Key
To: sca-middle@..., Pentamere_Chatelaines@yahoogroups.com,
The Middle Kingdom Office of the Chatelaine assists newcomers in their
efforts to find a place within the Society for Creative Anachronism.
Officers who aid newcomers are often in charge of a group’s Gold Key
(garb loaned to new people for use at their first few events.)
Currently the Middle Kingdom Chatelaine Office has initiated a Gold
Key Project whereby we hope to re-evaluate how we can best help new
individuals feel comfortable and welcomed at events and enable
newcomers to enjoy all the Society has to offer.
We would like to get some unofficial opinions from newer members on
how they think Gold Key can best assist new and potential members. We
are asking any person living in the Middle Kingdom who has been
playing less than 5 years, to please complete the following survey.
Responses are requested from members whether you are a paid member or
not. Your opinions and answers will greatly assist us in helping
future new members.
Feel free to forward to any new members or groups who would be interested
Baroness Verena Entenwirth
Chatelaine Deputy of Special Projects.

- Dear Ayreton, and also Ravenslake!
Does anyone want iris roots and columbine roots for fall planting? I recall that iris root is an ingredient in medieval perfumes and cosmetics.
My work colleague has sold her house in Lake Villa and the new owner prefers grass to flower beds.
There are 30 ft of irises, she says, and some columbines. If you want some, you are welcome to come dig up the gardens.
The digging is scheduled for Sept 12. Contact me directly to get the address (the owner doesn't want me to post the address on a mailing list). We will all meet in Lake Villa around 7pm and dig as much as we like.
You haven't seen much of me this summer, for various reasons of real-life issues (dog surgery and recovery, big Aikido charity project, new work assignments). The autumn will be more normal, and I'm looking forward to attending more SCA events and catching up with everyone again.
See you soon,
