Call for Letters – Chatelaine

Greetings fine Barony!

After four years serving this wonderful Barony, it is time for me to step down as your Chatelaine. I am officially calling for letters and requesting that letters be sent to me (chatelaine at debatablelands.org) and the Seneschal (seneschal at debatablelands.org) by June 1, 2020.

The job of Chatelaine is rewarding and fun. Duties include (but are not limited to) welcoming newcomers, connecting them with others doing things of interest to the newcomer and coordinating demos. Should you have questions about the duties associated with this position, please email me at chatelaine at debatablelands.org.

It has been an honor and a privilege to serve the Barony. I am thankful and grateful that I was blessed with the support of my deputy, Lord Ronan O’Conell.

Again, the deadline for letters is June 1, 2020 and voting will be at the June 3rd business meeting.

Thank you all for your time and for allowing me to be your Chatelaine for the last four years.

Lady Elizabeth “Libby” Parker

Demo — August 30 — Save the Date!

Dear friends —

Save the date! I know everyone is super busy with Pennsic prep, but I wanted to let everyone know that we were invited to demo at the Children’s Museum Medieval Maker night on Thursday, August 30, from 6:30 to 9:30.

This is a 21 + event, so no clearances are required. They are looking for 20-25 demonstrators, and are looking for fiber artists (weavers, nalbinders, knitters, dyers, enbroiderers, and all the rest), calligraphers, illuminators, equestrians, fighters, fencers, siege engineers, musicians, singers, dancers, royalty – you name it!

i Genesii has been the first to step up, they will be running a play date and getting spectators involved! Who else will be there?

We had several makeshop demos with them, and they really like working with the SCA. They are very flexible and accommodating, so if you want to be a part of it, let me know!

More details to follow. It will be awesome!

We would like to thank the outgoing Chatelaine, Lady Edana the Red, and the outgoing Mistress of the Lists, Baroness Elizabeth Arrowsmith, for their service in those positions. Your work was, and is, very much appreciated. Thank you.
