Notice: January Meeting and Upcoming Elections

Greetings to everyone in the Shire,
As you know a new year is almost upon us and that means it is time for Shire Elections!
This year we have the following Officers up for election:
Exchequer, Knight Marshall and Herald
The Exchequer requires that you live inside the State of Delaware and be a member of the SCA. Knight Marshal and Herald do not require State residency, though does still require membership. Anyone wishing to run for these offices are required to send me a letter of intent.

LETTER OF INTENT. The candidate for an office will submit a letter of intent to the Seneschal and Deputy Seneschal prior to the scheduled start of the January business meeting. The letter will include the member’s modern name, SCA name (if applicable), membership number and expiration date, and a few lines describing the request. Proof of residence is required (e.g. photocopy of a current utility bill or valid ID).

On January 14, 2017, I will be attending the Shire Social at Grotto Pizza in Dover, if anyone wants to send in letter of intent by hand. If you are emailing your letter of intent, please send it to my Official email: and I will need them no later than midnight that night of January 14, 2017.

The January Shire Meeting will be held the next day, January 15, 2017, 1:00 pm at the Bear Library. The candidates will be announced at that time.

I encourage everyone to think about running for an office or if you’re not sure if your “ready yet” to ask the new Officer about being a Deputy.

If you have any other questions, just ask.

Yours in Service to the Kingdom of the East,
Baron Adolphus Benner
Seneschal, Shire of Caer Adamant
