A&S BMDL – Weaving Anywhere – Thursday, Nov 9th

Greetings to the Debatable Lands!

Thursday is A&S in BMDL, and we will be continuing our fiber-fun trend with a class on Weaving Anywhere taught by Mahin Banu Tabrizi. We will build our own looms out of string and small sticks, and weave on them. This is an easy-peasy way to have fun with string!

We will be at Victory Pointe Gaming Lounge (and ice-cream parlor), upstairs in the game room, at 1113 Carson Street on the South Side, starting at 7 PM. Come early if you wish, people start arriving about 6:45.

Upstairs is not Accessible, so if you need assistance or have questions, please call or text me, (724-759-3333).

Be sure to park safely — feed the meter if needed. They ticket like crazy on the South Side. I think the best place is across the street in the bank parking lot.

See you there!

Officer Meeting RESCHEDULED

Tonight’s Officer’s Meeting is being RESCHEDULED!!!!

This morning we were made aware of a visit to CMU’s campus by Hilary Rodham Clinton that will be today at 6:00 p.m. This pretty much makes parking on or near campus impossible and we were unable to find an acceptable alternate venue with such short notice.

We will be rescheduling this meeting for next Wednesay on CMU’s campus from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The location will be announced within the next couple of days.

If you were submitting a budget request tonight, please send that to the Seneschal, Odriana, via email (seneschal@debatablelands.org). The Officers can then review those requests in advance of next week. This is particularly important if you will be unable to attend the rescheduled meeting. There will be no vote before the meeting to allow additional commentary by the populace.

We apologize for any inconvenience and for the short notice. If you have any questions or need more information, please contact the Seneschal directly.

February Officer Meeting

The February Officer’s Meeting is Wednesday, February 17th, 2016 at 8pm in Porter A18A on the CMU Campus. If you are unable to make it please send a proxy either to me or one of the other Officers who are attending.

The meeting was delayed from its customary day of the first Wednesday until after the investiture of our new Baron and Baroness.

At this meeting, we will be selecting a new Seneschal. Members of the populace are welcome and encouraged to attend!
