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: seneschal@caer-adamant.eastkingdom.org 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

Nov. 13- Sixth Tournament of the Fallen Stag

Tales are told of glorious combat, and legends are built one story at a time. Shire members and neighbors alike are called to arms to join us on the Thirteenth of November for the Sixth Annual Tournament of the Fallen Stag. Our previous years’ winner, Adam Greatsword has issued a challenge to all fighters to join him in a Bear Pit style tournament where no shields are allowed. Bring great weapons, bring two swords, bring axes, but please set your shield aside. Prizes will be awarded for Overall Tournament Winner, Shire Winner, Best Death, and Chivalry.

Spectators are most welcome, and garb is encouraged. The site is a county park, so the public will be attendance, and the site is dry. We will have the Gold Key (clothing that can be borrowed for the day) available for those who wish to use it. This event is free of charge, and all are invited to the potluck Dayboard after the tournament, that is our tradition in the Shire.
