Curia Notes - 2016


In Attendance:Abelard, Beatrice, Albrecht, Eva, Arnbjorn, Asabella, Karl, Corin, Fancy, Dahrien, Idonia, Kateryn, Magnus

Reminder: Please don't report anything during Curia which you will then add to your report in the Tower. And remember to send a report to the Tower.

Officer Reports:

Baroness: Yule Court is this weekend. If you haven't gotten in your award recommendations, you're late - but you can put them in for Border Skirmish. We will have court at Yule Court, and there are a number of awards and backlogs. Come to court! Also, Hamish will be elevated to the Pelican at ToC in Tomah. Everyone should come to that!

Chronicler: Song of the Tower articles are due by February 5. Make sure the subject line is 'Song of the Tower', and the article includes your signature as you wish it to appear. Working on the January Tower now.

Webminister: Everything is status quo.

Minister of Arts and Sciences: Out sick tonight. If you're teaching a class for SUN, please send handouts to Katerina - handouts are being posted on the Northshield website under 'Class Resources'.

Knights Marshal: Practices continue. The Society Earl Marshal is releasing new handbooks for most of the martial disciplines. Remember, SCA rules trump Northshield rules.

Archery: Mondays at Gander Mountain. Archery Challenge begins next week, 1/25.

Rapier: Practices. New people. Yay!

Chatelaine: Receiving garb donations from Armond and Sofonisba, Dahrien and Mysie, Bardolph, others. Making new contacts, getting new people.

Exchequer: Boar's Head made a profit. Domesday is almost ready (not due until the end of the month).

Quartermaster: Needs to send in warrant stuff.

Herald: Nothing to report here - read the Tower.

Seneschal: We had a demo! Things seem to be going smoothly.

Old Business:

Midwinter Gaming Demo: Had about 15 SCA folks. Some old SCA people turned up as well. Ivar will be in charge next year and has already established contact with the person in charge. He's working on getting a nice room with plenty of floor and ceiling space. We had a bad time slot this year because of the delay in signing up, but still got some interest. Suggestion: We should get our folks to walk around as well as hang out in the room, because people will follow us back to the demo room. Maybe we can work with the masquerade to be the half-time show.

Yule Moot: Saturday 1/23 at the Muskego Beach House. People will be on site by noon, though the moot doesn't begin until 3. Court at 4. Potluck at 5. Gift exchange afterwards. Will bring extra gifts so that everyone can participate.

Border Skirmish: Arnbjorn emailed finance committee the bid for Boar's Head for review. Used last year's numbers as a base. Spoke with equestrian in Midrealm and Northshield and they will be attending SCA 50, so we don't need the arena this year. This means that we don't need as much hay, either. These numbers change the bid slightly. Marie is the Ravenslake autocrat. Arthur Angus volunteered to be CAM Longshoreman. Got interest from some vendors at the demo.

Open Practice: January's was great. February's is sponsored by Jean and Katerina. March will be sponsored by Beatrice, Asabella, and Typhaine. Randall has expressed interest in sponsoring April.

New Business:

Boar's Head bids due tonight. We don't have a bid, but do have a proposal of interest. Voted to accept Idonia and Albrecht's proposal to steward with a pending bid, accepted.

Finance Committee will meet to discuss Border Skirmish bid.

Next month's meeting is February 16 at Brookfield. (Arnbjorn's birthday!)

Guilds and Groups:

Herbal: We have interest from some new people in bringing this guild out of hiatus. Kateryn will look into it.

Dance: Expect two dance practices per month except February which will only have one.

UWM: Considering putting in a bid for Officer's Day, SUN, a Collegium of some sort, or maybe Bardic Madness. More information to come.

Meeting suspended so that the Finance Committee could meet.

Meeting resumed. Finance Committee presented the Border Skirmish bid for a populace vote. It was approved.

Officer Reports:

Baroness: Went to an event in Minnesota, came back in the snow. The Northshield Kingdom Arts and Sciences Open Division and Triathalon Tournament was great, and a few people from CAM made it out there. We have no letters of intent for the open offices yet, although they were due today, but we'll get to that.
