The December Officers Meeting will be on Wednesday, 7 December 2016 on the campus of Carnegie Mellon University in Porter Hall A18A. The meeting starts at 8:00p and ends at 10:00p.
If you haven’t gone into hibernation just yet, Your Captain of Archers will be on site with targets and equipment for some archery practice. Come on down between 11am and 2pm. Please dress for cold weather.

We will be having fencing practice this Sunday, going forward we will be reverting to our winter time of 2pm – 6pm.
Our location this week is once again the Pittsburgh Chinese Church at 8711 Old Perry Hwy, Pittsburgh, PA 15237.
We will be in the large activity room we used last time we were at the PCC on the second floor.
Our start time will be shortly after the ending of church services, so be polite with your parking.
As a followup to my previous post, I am still seeking letters of intent for the office of Comet Pursuivant, Baronial Herald. To this date I have received none. Please send your letters of intent to myself at “herald at debatablelands.org” and Odrianna, the Baronial Seneschal at “seneschal at debatablelands.org” or hand deliver them at the Officer’s meeting December 7 when the office changeover happens.
I will repost here the requirements for the office in case you missed them last time.
3)Running the official portion of the 6 barony meetings that we have each year.
4) Being the second ranking officer of the barony and part of the financial committee
5)Coordinating efforts towards heraldic education and preparing your successor
6) Maintaining the Baronial OP (this also does not need to be personally done by Comet, a deputy could be placed in charge of this, and will require coordination with the Webminister to continue doing it)
Sad to say, due to the Snowy weather and concern over safe roads, Archery is canceled for this Sunday.

Enjoy the snowy asthetics, stay warm, and be safe. Stay tuned to see if Archery is on for next week.

This week Byron and Ariella have offered us the use of their home in Wexford for our practice, as we have not yet been able to arrange other accommodations for our indoor site.
Fencing will run from 2PM until 6 PM in the great hall.
Archery (weather pending) is on for this Sunday! Join us at the usual site at Highland Park Washington Blv. 11am-2pm. ^_~’

There will be loaner equipment available.
Unto the Barony, greetings from Kameshima, Scribal Guildmaster! Due to a modern-life conflict, Master Kieran’s “Introduction to Cadels” class will have to be rescheduled for a later date. In its place, Kameshima and Isabel will be teaching “Scroll Layout 101.” We will touch on topics related to both illumination and calligraphy, including scroll dimensions, how to use an Ames Lettering Guide, working from exemplars, required scroll information, and some basic layout ideas.
We apologize for the late notice, and we look forward to seeing you this Wednesday at BMDL Scriptorium!
As this Sunday is the Barony Meeting and Practices with PIE at the Castle in Wexford, there will be no A&S at Washington Blvd. Make PIE, eat PIE, vote for PIE!
Also, I am looking for an indoor location for us to meet, so please keep your eyes open and let me know if you find anything around. Examples of places on my list so far: Panera (but no privacy or reservations); Stoke’s Bar on McKnight Rd (private room available); JoAnne Fabrics (unused classrooms, reservations needed); Tech Shop (East Liberty (on bus routes, probably free).
So, looking for: anywhere central, easily accessible by bus, and free or low cost. Let me know of any ideas!
Thanks, Elss Augsburg
BMDL Minister of A&S
