Check your cards!
- Hi folks,
My apologies for not sending this message before Trillies. Various
things conspired to prevent that.
First, a great wassail and many thanks to Gerrard for doing the Minister
of the Lists job for so long! Second, I am (for now) the Minister of
the Lists while we sort out some details about getting the information
we need for reports recorded correctly.
Even without warning, I stamped a number of cards this past weekend.
Some of which were out of date by almost two years! I realise that we
don't pull our cards out to admire them, so it's easy to forget that
dates in the mirror may be closer than they appear. Expired cards mean
more work for everyone. By the book, you need to reauthorise if your
card expires. That's a pain, so we all need to do better about catching
expiring cards. We're going to be working on checking cards more
consistently at events, so that should help people remember better in
At any rate, if you're going to Pennsic and your card is expired or
expiring, don't panic. I will have the stamp at Pennsic. I camp with
Skraeling Althing (W18, on the lake). Just find me and we'll get
everyone stamped if they need it as they get inspected and stickered.
You can also do it the old fashioned way if you are keen or won't be at
Send your card and a self-addressed, stamped envelope to me:

I will also be at Skraeling Baronial Muster and Baron's Howe, so you can
get stamped there as well.
