Come join us at Highland Park for some excellent Archery. 11am-2pm.
Hope to see you tomorrow 11am-2pm for some archery, at Highland Park.
-your Captain of Archers
This Sunday fencing practice will be starting at 12 PM instead of the usual 1 PM.
We will be having Cut n Thrust this week with multiple marshals so authorizations are possible, there is limited loaner gear available, so if you ever wanted to try Cut n Thrust come on out.
We will also be doing some demonstrations and teaching on cutting techniques with sharp blades, for those interested in learning more about that aspect.
If we get enough attendance this week we will also be running a tournament simulating combat starting suddenly. Both fencers will start with their swords sheathed at their hips and will draw at lay on.
Also as a reminder all fencers wishing to participate in fencing at Pennsic must have their Primary Authorization completed before arriving at War.
There will be archery this Sunday. 11am – 2pm at Highland Park. Loaner equipment will be available first come first served. Weather always pending. Hope to see you Sunday.
-Your Captain of Archers, Lady Katheryn Täntzel.

Hello Debatable Lands!
Pennsic is fast approaching. Have you pre-registered yet? Online paid registrations end Saturday, June 17th.

Go ahead… I’ll wait.
Make sure to keep Monday of War Week open. We’re having our annual Pennsic Baronial Reception and Court, starting at 4pm, Aug 7th, in AEthelmearc Royal. The potluck worked out so well last year, we’re doing it again! Coordinator is Lady Zianna. Tell us what you’re bringing here. There’s also a Facebook event for the Baronial Reception, for those who do Facebook. Here it is. Court will be near the beginning this year (we need Comet recommendations! Email us! email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org). Can’t wait to see everyone!

My term as exchequer ends at the August meeting. I have enjoyed serving in this role and have learned much about the working of the barony and its events, but will not be renewing my term again. This is a call for letters of intent for the office. If you are interested in serving as the exchequer, please send a letter with your intent, listing any experience that is relevant to the position, and other information about yourself to the seneschal and the exchequer. The email addresses are on the website. If you submit a letter, if would be good if you can also attend the August meeting to explain your background and interest as well as answer questions if there are any.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve these Debatable Lands.
