Mar 24/Baronial A&S (Guillaume): March 24th, Magnolia Lutheran Church. Registration is open for dinner with Sarra the Brave ($10 gate, $10 dinner). Would like volunteers for set-up, dishes during the meal prep, and after dinner, please contact Madelena. Still encouraging entrants for both championships (letter of intent to B&B by March 11). Looking for non-competitive displays/performances. There will be dancing, practice available this Thursday at Trahaern’s.

June 16/Baronial Champions & Demo (Juana): We don’t need permits. Parking should be fine. Need fighters! No youth championship. Jeri will bring popups; someone else will arrange weights. Enzio has a plan for Eric rope plan.

June 30/Atheneum (Alianora): New budget, and a different date. June 30, 2018. North Seattle College, it’s a large site and we’d be using their main cafeteria space which is adjacent to parking lot. New, updated, pretty, with courtyard. Estimated attendees = 150. Site fee will be $15; it’s a preregistered event. We’ve extended hours for more time for setup and teardown. No named insurance required; banquet permit will be acquired.  People can bring lunches to the site. Can we publicize this at Kingdom A&S? Yes! C&C will roll out this weekend as a big deal. The big item at this event is that it’s arts focused but not a competition.

Jul 14/Peasants’ Revel (Ysolt): day in the park, soup dinner, sheep waiver, no court, no budget. There will be rolling cheese.

Sep 28-30/Emprise (Gera and Guillaume): EIF, info scroll, invites to judges this week, and Temetgen will print invitations for us again. We’ll proceed with planning other items.

Nov 3/Baronial Banquet (Etiennette): we still have the date at Scottish Rite. Ann-Mary will autocrat. Price isn’t changing. Two desserts inc. a cantaloupe torte. Pork and chicken for main course. 1650 French, and decoration plans are afoot. Twentieth anniversary of Enzio’s SCA membership; 30th of Etiennette and Kit’s.

Demo question (Keri-je): Fall City Days, June 9. Can we do a demo in this parade as well as a popup display? Horses would be awesome. Spike would be delighted and would enjoy this, and we’d like to do this. Length is six blocks. There are a lot of kids in the audience.
