Spring Crown Tournament- May 11, 2019: The Mandt Center in Stoughton (Jara) is available for Spring Crown. The Barony will submit a bid with Asabella as steward and Armond & Sofonisba as feast stewards.
Turm an dem See Demo: TADS will be holding a demo on October 6th at Camp Sinewa (Mermaids site). Any fighters and merchants are welcome.
Border Skirmish Dates: Ravenslake has suggested to move Border Skirmish from the second to third weekend of June. They hope to avoid conflicting with other Midrealm groups that have also started to pull MK royals away from BS. There are concerns that moving to the third weekend will conflict with Northern Realms War, if not in 2019, then likely in future years. This would likely pull NS royals away from BS. With almost ten years of holding BS on the second weekend, changing from the usual weekend would likely negatively impact attendance. Barony prefers keeping it on the second weekend.
Guilds and Groups:
UWM Student Group: First meeting on 9/19/18?5-7 pm (likely will go later)- Union Room 250. Baronial members welcome to attend. Faculty advisor is a former SCAdian, Dr. Andrew Larsen. Adriana is looking for instructors for classes during their Wednesday meetings. UWM is holding a Natural Dying workshop in November. Want to hold a garb making day and to thin the loaner garb closet.
