Old Business

Mistress Jorunn Autocrat/Event Steward – Hidden Mountain Baronial Birthday and Investiture (HMBB&I) – Staff has regular meetings on a Zoom to report status and any changes. Insurance Cert on file with the Girl Scout Camp per discussion with Chris, contact at the site. He also informed us it is a wet site. THLady Constantia is working hard on the feast. She has had to make adjustments due to the price of food going up. There are two A&S classes, see web page for details. I have sent the event announcement to all the FB pages of the Southern Baronies, Kingdom of Meridies Barony of South Downs, and the two Kingdom Announcements and Merry Rose FB pages. Will continue to send as updates occur.

-Mistress Tegan asked a question about Champion competitions at the current event because someone thought in previous instances of Baronage turnover it was somehow included in the Investiture event. As autocrat for this event, I am facilitating Hidden Mountain Baronial Birthday, a celebration of the inception of the Barony. When the new Baron and Baroness are announced, I, as autocrat, will work with them at that time to include in the event any decisions about champions they have, in addition to, what is already planned.

Baroness Bridget – Baronage Report – There will be a day shade set up at Nottinghill Coill Baronial Birthday (NCBB) and she would like items for a sideboard at the event. She requested largesse for the basket she will give at NCBB and will accept donations at Tourney of Manannan MacLir on the 28th and the morning of NCBB.

Mistress Adendra said she’d donate her homemade soap.

Mistress Adendra -Autocrat/Event Steward for Tourney of Manannan MacLir requested reservations be in her hand Tuesday at the latest of next week, the 24th in order for her to include in the event. If you want a place at the feast please contact Mistress Alisoun (see event flyer for info). Help is needed for tent set up on the field and hall decoration. There will be no Royals at event, just our Baronage. There are 4 competitions. The two fighting competitions for the Broaches have a boasting competition challenge for each fighter, they may have someone else do the boasting for them. The winner of this competition will win a homemade knit hat by Mistress Adendra herself. Mistress Alisoun and Master Geoffrey are supplying prizes for their sponsored A&S activities.  Youth fighting, previously left off schedule, will take place a 1 p.m., during the lunch break.

Adendra said she will post the Tear Sea’s Shore Financial Policies for discussion at the next Canton meeting.

Lord Pippin – Final words from Seneschal

There are 4 positions either vacant or soon will be. Please consider volunteering to replace the current folks. These are important positions for the Barony.

Lord Wulfgar asked a question about how does one find out about the responsibility and duties of each position.

Lord Pippin offered a synopsis version be placed on the Baronial webpage. Mistress Jorunn recommended to go to the Kingdom Webpage under the Governing Documents section and look through the Kingdom of Atlantia Book of Policy which describes the duties for each position by the Kingdom officer. It was also mentioned that any of the previous officers would be glad to share with them what the duties are.
