Fighter Practice – Folks, it’s time!!

Please use the linked signup sheet for sign up for fighter practices starting 03/28. Please only sign for yourself (do not list other individuals)! Select the Yes/No option under the listed dates. Yes, really, all of them.

Caer Adamant Fighter Practice Cohort Sheet

IF YOU DO NOT SIGN UP, YOU WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO FIGHT.

Per Society guidelines, practices may have a MAXIMUM of 25 attendees. We are permitted a STABLE cohort of 15 fighters. This “might” leave room for a very small group of folks to spectate, but that is not the purpose of practices and fighters will be given preference.

Everyone attending will be expected to:
-Wear a mask
-Maintain social distancing
-Sign the Contact Tracing sheet

Keep an eye peeled for your Friendly Fighter Forecasts and other helpful reminders for future practices!

Poll is open for 2021-22 Officer Election

Please follow this link to vote for candidates for Shire offices up for election. The poll will remain open until the start of the Shire business meeting on Sunday, February 21st at 1 PM, when results will be announced. One vote per person please; sign into Google to cast your vote.

Questions

2021-22 Officer Candidates

Pursuant to the Bylaws of Caer Adamant, Letters of Intent for the offices of Exchequer, Harold, Knight Marshal and Webminister for the 2021-2022 terms were accepted up to the January business meeting and are now closed.

Additionally, nominations for the office of Chatelaine (which is being vacated mid-term as Lady Laurena Mouchot steps away from the office after many, many years of wonderful service in the role for the Shire) were also accepted.

Candidates for office include:

  • Exchequer: Lady Motte Nachfalter
  • Harold: Lord Hallbjorn Tryggvason
  • Knight Marshal:  Baron Magnus Wolfhunte
  • Webminister:  Lady Nancy Alyn
  • Chatelaine:  Honorable Lady Isabel of Rosley

Officer elections generally occur during the February business meeting via closed ballot; however, due to the current health situation, the Seneschal has indicated that an electronic voting mechanism will be shared a week or so before the meeting.

The winner will be that candidate who receives a simple majority of the votes cast. Should the Populace vote to reject all of the candidates for a position, and that position is required by East Kingdom Law or Corpora, the process of holding a new election will begin immediately. In the interim, the Seneschal will make provisions for the performance of any duties of the office required.

Volunteer Opportunity – Timeless Trades program at GBM

Hello Caer Adamant! Our friends at Greenbank Mills and Philips Farm (GBM) are seeking volunteers to help with their TIMELESS TRADES program series.

If you’re willing to develop a class, or classes, they want to hear from you!  GBM would provide a kit for participants to start and you would conduct the class virtually (for now).  This is one way a SCAdian could stay connected with and share their hobby during these socially distanced times.

The options for topics is broad! While SCA’s time period is quite a while before GBM’s period of interpretation (1790-1830), there are trades which continue today, such as farming, food preservation, leather and metal work, shepherding, spinning/weaving/textiles, wax craft, woodworking and more (crafts immigrant communities may have brought with them).

By way of example, this fall, they will be hosting a “Cross Stitch 101” series which will begin with courses that go back to the basics (various tools and basic stitches), along with the history of the craft and exhibits from their collection.  Later courses will provide opportunities for participants to “level up”.  Neat, right?!

If interested in volunteering for the Timeless Trades program, please contact Stacie Maheurin, Executive Director of GBM, at smaheurin@greenbankmill.com. Stacie will walk you through things like how to introduce the program, how long it should be, what it should look like, format and those kinds of things. Thank you!

In Service,
Lady Nancy Alyn, Deputy MoAS North
