Online Sewing – Thurs Jun 4th at 7:30

Online sewing, ironing, cutting, knitting, and/or braiding will be this Thursday June 4th from 7:30 – 10:00. There is no agenda, but the theme is “It ain’t necessarily sew”. Having fabric or fiber fun with friends is fabulous. Later in June there is a class about sewing gores. The details will follow shortly. I am also encouraging anyone who would like to teach a garb, sewing, or some other fabric or fiber class on zoom to contact me: sewing at debatablelands dot org.

Sad Tidings: Xerox

It is with heavy hearts that we inform you that Xerox (Zack), the son of Lady Vika Vyborgskaia (our MoL) and step-son of Master Jussi Laplein, passed away unexpectedly yesterday.

Xerox brought Vika and Jussi into the SCA at just 13 years old, as his birthday wish was to camp at Pennsic. As a boy, he was a youth fighter. At Pennsic, he camped with the House of the Blue Rose (Serenity Stone). Xerox a was good-hearted, loving, and caring man, and was an Organ Donor.

We offer our deepest condolences to his mother, Lady Vika, his step-father Master Jussi, and his friends and family.

Lady Vika has asked for time and space to grieve and process, and wishes it known that they have the support of close friends and family.

Due to the pandemic, there will not be a funeral or memorial service at this time. His family hopes to hold a service when they can. Currently, the family requests no flowers or gifts. However, if you would like to make a personal donation (non-SCA) to help cover his unexpected final costs, you can send donations directly to Vika via PayPal (ulvika@yahoo.com), or to her home address. Or send directly to Noll Funeral Home, 333 Third St, Beaver, PA 15009, “In Memory of Zackery Pickens”.

In Caritate,
Baroness Hilda and Baron Brandubh

From the Office of the Seneschal – update – No Martial Activities at this time

Greetings until the Noble Populace of the Debatable Lands from Muirgheal inghean Dubhghaill, Seneschal Debatable.

In these interesting times with our restrictions starting to be lifted in careful measures, I would like to remind you that at this time under the advice of the Kingdom Seneschal and the Local Medical Community, the Debatable Lands is not hosting any martial activities of any kind.

I remind you all that we are doing this to keep each other safe from the pox which currently stretches beyond our borders, and that while we are all anxious to get back to business, we must do so with great care and consideration for the common good. We are beginning our discussions to see how, when it is prudent to do so, we can proceed safely. More information will be forthcoming. If you have questions or concerns, please come to me or seek out any Officer of the DebatableLands with whom you are comfortable speaking.

Be safe, check in on each other, wash your hands, be the neighbor that Lord Frederick would wish you to be!

Yours in service,
Muirgheal

Reminder: Movie Poll

Greetings!

I was going to close the Doodle about the next movie viewing yesterday, but, in highly appropriate Pythonic fashion, the number of the voting has been THREE.

Yes, THREE people have expressed their interest and availability for group-viewing “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”

Accordingly, I am going to keep the Doodle open through Memorial Day. Please vote if you are interested in participating!

The doodle link is: https://doodle.com/poll/ii92mc474xgi4tzw

Film Club!

Greetings!

A small but dedicated group met this afternoon, persevered through a few technical hiccups, and eventually figured out how to watch “The Princess Bride” – and a fine time was had!

Our runner-up movie was “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” and we decided that we want to group-watch that sometime as well. After that, we’ll discuss other things to watch and when and how to watch them.

I’ve created a Doodle here: https://doodle.com/poll/ii92mc474xgi4tzw with a few not-quite random options. If you’re interested in joining the watch party, please go vote for the times that would work for you. The Doodle will be open through this Wednesday, May 20, so that I can announce the time that best suits and post instructions for logging on.

Ever in Service,

Gwen

Movie Viewing – Revised

Greetings!

After a test run, it appears that using the Zoom for this may not work.

I can run the film on my Discord. If you want to view the movie, you will need to download and install Discord on your own computer, and then subscribe to the Discord server.

Steps to configure Discord: 

1. download the app open & log in

2. add Gwen’s server 

3. Adjust sound settings (you may have to click on the mic and then authorize your computer to use the mic and camera and such)

4. Maybe restart the app?

5. if you still can’t hear things, look on the channel and see if there’s a thing to click on that says to authenticate

Gwen’s server: https://discord.gg/4XycuM

Sorry about the additional platform, but you’ll want to be able to see and hear….

Ever in Service,

Gwen
