PumpkinfestMarcial contacted Donna Frello and we would have the open lot south of the Couch Potato for our encampment, which would work out great for our purpose. He also asked about their open fire policy she was not sure, she will look into it for us. There is the possibility of using Massie field, but it is not optimum for us. It was suggested that we have a herald in armor walk up and down the street announcing any demos/ promoting the encampment. Possible activities include: war horses, bocce, fighting demos (pending a marshal), and crafts for kids. It was suggested we contact Karen Mallum about borrowing old LSRF childrenfs realm games. The dates of Pumpkinfest will be Friday October 8th- 10th. If overnight camping is allowed, or if we can provide our own security, we will set up Friday night, stay Saturday and Sunday, tearing down camp on Sunday. Ask if the space will be exclusively ours, as we need the whole space. It was asked that we inquire about their pet policy. This demo will also be used as a fund raising event, and the primary ideas are selling gpickles on a stickh, hot cider, Seknjabin, crafts, and possibly classes. The fundraiser will be discussed further at our next Thing.
CampingThe group camping trip is scheduled for Saturday September 11th. Set up is scheduled for Friday night, for whomever wishes to camp out, with Saturday being the main event, and Sunday being tear down. Marcial will contact the Frst household to see if they will be joinng us for this group get together. Activites planned thus far are: bonfires, bocce, war horses, hiking, and fishing. Special events will be a group picture, and our Culinary challenge.
Culinary ChallengeThe groups next culinary challenge is to be held Saturday Sept. 11th during our group camping trip. The culinary challege will be held as our dinner meal. The theme for this challenge is gCooking In The Roughh, which means that ALL entries must be cooked over an open fire (if possible). Courses drawn are as follows:
Marcial and Kathryn- beverages
Vara- bread and cheese
Audun and Jamie- any course
Colin and Jeanette- dessert
Still up for grabs are- meat and fruit/veggies. If you want to claim a course, contact either Marcial or Kathryn.
Name and DeviceNo word yet from Moraig pertaining to our name research. Marcial looked and he could not find a different submission form for a group device, so we will use the device submission form currently available online. He also informed the group that here is no charge for a groups name and device submission.
Border SkirmishSeneschal from Mistig Waetru Kalla responded to Maricalfs email. She said that she is excited and will talk to the rest of Mistig Waetru and other applicable people about what it takes to get a border skirmish going. What the regulations and guidelines are for when we do decide to issue the challenge.
Group FundsIt was proposed that we use group funds to purchase Scotch Guard for the tent material as well as leather, rattan, and chain weaving materials. Marcial will get quotes for leather and rattan.
Scattered StonesKathryn distributed the Permission to Publish forms and discussed the possibility of suspending the newsletter due to the lack of submissions and interest. Members did not want to see the newsletter discontinued and asked that the deadline be extended by one week. It was suggested that submissions become a gmandatoryh assignment, but Kathryn is hesitant to force people to submit. It will be discussed further. As it stands, the new deadline for Scattered Stones is Saturday September 3rd.
EmailsMarcial requested that officers of Hvitskogar create an email for their office, preferably through Gmail. Marcial and Kathryn have already done so. The new email addresses are: Seneschal- hvitskogarsen@..., Chronicler hvitskogarchronicler@.... @
