Greetings, all!If you've just returned from Pennsic, welcome home! It's been quiet on the SCA front for the rest of us, an opportunity to work on projects or to take time for the other things in our lives. But there are lots of good events coming in the Region in the next few months for us all to get our Midlands fix...I have just a couple of quick notes this month to pass along.
I'll be attending a number of events in the next couple of months, both in and out of the Region. As usual, I'm available for "office hours" whenever you see me wearing the red ribbon and sparkly Key. Come say hello!
- Seneschal's reports are due this month - Shire and Canton reports on the 15th, Baronial on the 30th. If you're going to be late, please let me know. I've attached the PDF version of the report form; we had a few issues with it last time, so if you want to use it, please note: Save the form to your hard drive before *and* after you fill it out, then attach it to an e-mail to send it to me. DO NOT use the "send" option from the Adobe menu - it'll wipe out all your entries and I'll receive a blank form (frustrating for both of us!). There's a version for MSWord on the regional website (on the Seneschal page), or you can type your answers into an e-mail to me.
- As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, Kingdom now requires we use their specific form at Troll instead of any other systems we had in place. I'll be using it for the first time myself at MKAOD and will pass along any learnings I gain; otherwise, I suggest contacting the Kingdom Exchequer if you have any questions regarding it.
- REGIONAL JOB OPENING: Lady Asa has notified me that she wishes to step down as Regional Chronicler, effective immediately. Please pass this along to your groups and have anyone who may be interested in the position contact either Lady Asa or me.
Unfortunately, as of right now I'll have to miss both Fields of Cloth and Gold (Oct 5, Illiton) and Crystal Ball (Nov 9, Shattered Crystal) due to schedule conflicts. (sad face!)That's it for this month. Keep sending in award recommendations - Their Majesties can't recognize the goodness that is the Midlands unless we help Them to know it exists!Play nice, share the toys, have fun...~Marie
