Call for Letters - Knight Marshal

From the Knight Marshal:

Greetings fellow Barony members! My term as Knight Marshal ends in October. Please consider taking over the office so that we can continue to have great practices every week.

The Knight Marshal is responsible for coordinating weekly practice and being the marshal in charge at those practices. In the event that the Knight Marshal cannot be at a practice, he or she arranges for one of the other marshals to run the practice.

Additionally, the group marshals for fencing, youth, archery, and thrown weapons report to the Knight Marshal as deputies.

Overall, the position is not a huge time commitment if you attend, or plan to attend, practice on a regular basis.

If you are interested in helping out your Barony by filling this position, please submit a letter of intent to the Knight Marshal and the Seneschal before the October Barony Meeting. Thanks!
