Curia notes, 1/21/19

Greetings from their excellences.

12th night recap

recognition for elevations, kingdom seneschal.

Barony presented largesse with bountiful hand. Thank you to barony, ex. Juana La Christiana.

Master Tamlin- proposed forming a metalworkers guild. Sir Raphael offers to host metalworking group

2019 fundraising

Need to update fundraising systems to be in the black. Questions about income inequality being a barrier to participation. Costs are primarily Storage unit & fighting area.   Baronial spending beyond those is almost 0. Cannot rely on site fees to maintain costs.

Reminder to report donations to big companies, which often match donations.

Seneschal’s comments.

Social media update: Kingdom must create facebook pages, which are then populated by the barony.  Meeting of social media officer to hash out details and streamline process.

Reminder that springing new ideas on Event Stewards for events is something that should be saved for events that are still long out- even good ideas are stressful only a couple weeks out!

Lady Margaret Palmer is our new gold key coordinator!

Finances

11,368.37 primary account. Two outstanding checks that have not been cashed

15,192.92 Money market.

$5000 transferred from primary to MM, reflected next month.

Event close outs

Baronial banquet- 97 diners, 10 day trippers. Credit card system worked well, 2/3ds used.
