Re: [Ayreton] Re: Mayors Offfice of Special Events ?
Thank You Alexander, et al
The town crier does indeed already fulfill the mission quite well. We will soon have a bigger and better web page thanks to Lord Tedesco, with easier access and better features. I've also suggested the Towne Crier increase his announcements from just once a month to twice. My opinion is that it is better to have too much(?) info than not enough in time. Fighter practices and A&S gatherings deserve the best chance at the largest attendance as possible, and newcomers may miss on an announcement that occurs only monthly.
-------------- Original message from AlexdeSet@...: --------------Greetings!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

Subject: [Ayreton] Re: Mayors Offfice of Special Events ?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 thi s 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)

The heraldry suggestion is well-taken. So far we have used the
linked ring as seen on the necklace. Six segments with crenellated
borders, each with a different color representing the groups, with a
script "A" in the center. I'll include a picture for reference. This
was first seen included in the original propasal/charter for the
creation of the Lord Mayor's office, and also used on the back of
the coronation tokens of Felix and Madeleina 1, held here and the
first true Ayreton event. I'm kinda fond of the concept. We're
working on the banner.
- Of course, it is not absoultely necessary to register such a Badge
with the College of Heralds in order to display it.
-Kevin Ambrozijwski, just a guy who knows something about Heraldry
and is not responding in any kind of offical capacity at all.
