* Knights Marshal: We are finished with indoor practices at the church. Please keep your eyes and ears open for new indoor sites. Thursday nights can be at the church side-yard or KK - see the item at the bottom of this report.

* Rapier Marshal: Nobody's been hurt, so it's been a good month!

* Archery Captain: Last week we started Wednesday night practices at KK River Parkway. Sundays will continue to alternate between KK and Menomonee. Congratulations to Baron Abelard who advanced to the semi-finals at Schutzenfest (top 10 handbow archers). Archery Captain is open - ends in October, so LOI due at September Curia.

* Thrown Weapons Captain: Starting practices. First practice will be Sundays at KK, and every other Monday at the Roost (except when TRH are not home).

* Minister of Youth: Office is open.


OLD BUSINESS

* Advertising: The ad is getting a lot of views, but don't know how that translates into people coming in. We have had an increase in joins and likes on facebook, which appear to be coming from the ad.

* Fall Crown 2024 (Arnbjorn & Beatriz): Reached out the Northshield Moneyer's Guild to make site tokens. Once we get past War Practice we'll kick things into higher gear. Need to get the insurance.

* War Practice at the Roost II (Deonysia): We're going to have it, and it's going to be great. Everything's on schedule. Deo is taking care of food for Saturday night feast. Mysie will be in charge of gate. Samii will be rattan MIC. Sibillia will be rapier MIC. Karl will be TW MIC. Checked with Sofonisba about things we might need from the storage locker. Need to provide some money for the cash box. Thorbrandr has invited folks out to do some work on June 1, a "get ready for war practice" day, times will be posted later. (That's the same day as Kingdom A&S.)

* Haustblot (Tatiana): The website is at least partially up. We do have a facebook page. Samii will do feast on Saturday night - menu is posted. Pre-registration is open. Cabins are sold out but the bunkhouse still has openings. Still looking for armored MIC. Sibillia is in charge of classes - let her know if there's something you want to teach. Arnora is rapier MIC. Karl is TW MIC. Beatriz is the royalty liaison. Dahrien is in charge of cleanup. Looking for a volunteer to help with setup. Note, site is opening earlier this year. There might be breakfast on Saturday. Still need someone to run gate. Tatiana is handling pre-reg. Still need to get the insurance.

* Baronial transfer: No letters of intent yet - these are due June 5. This is a required office to remain a Barony.

* New Fighting Site: The church said we can use their parking lot and bathroom and side yard, we can also go to KK, and Mitchell Park now has bathrooms. Charlotte will make her spreadsheet available to find an indoor site. She will need someone else to call some locations during business hours.

* Scribal night: Starting a Tuesday night scribal night at the Yemeni coffee shop at 76th and Layton. She will try to get there between 5:30 and 6. Second and fourth Tuesday of the month. Has lots of templates and designs for new people to practice with, and also calligraphy! Whether you're brand new or have lots of experience, come play!

* Omnibus Peerage: Letters are due tomorrow! Send letters to the BOD about the omnibus peerage!


NEW BUSINESS

* Boars Head Bids Due: A bid was submitted by Asabella and Arthur. Includes a feast and a lunch, morning court and evening court. We can look at the same lunch person as last year. Note, Washington County has a new event coordinator. We discussed, moved to accept the bid, voted, and approved the bid.

* Renaissance Faire: "We are starting a Renaissance Faire on Sept. 14-15, 2024 at Old Falls Village Park in Menomonee Falls WI. We are excited to hear if you would like to attend this event. We are interested in knowing if you have a fee to your appearance at the event. The park is 18 acres with forest, stream, pond, wetland and open space with trees throughout the park. We will set up a performance area, vendor area, historical camps and areas for some parking on site. If there is something you need, please let me know." (https://www.oldfallsvillage.com/ / https://www.facebook.com/events/2180467395631432) We would treat this as a demo. This is also the weekend of Thorbrandr and Thora's coronation in Korsvaag. Charlotte will send out a potential sign-up sheet, and if there's enough interest we can participate.

* Storage locker: Rent is due in June. Would like to pay the rent. Moved, voted, approved.
