East Kingdom A&S Champions/Tourney of Love Update

Good Day,

We have just gotten word that our bid was not accepted for the East Kingdom A&S Champions event.  Their Highness’ already had another SCA event on that date and so went with a bid that did not conflict. This means that we WILL be hosting Tourney of Love again this year on February 13th and Lord Otto will be our Event Steward.  So start your projects and update your auth cards! Who will be our Champeen O’ Love this year?!

In Service,

The Baronial Seat

The Baron and Baroness have indicated their desire to sit for another/final 3 year term.  As our charter indicates the following will happen.  All members of the populace have 30 days to send the Seneschal ( endewearde.seneschal@yahoo.com) a formal letter of intent to run for the Baronial Seat.

If no one else sends a letter of intent the populace will be polled by closed ballot on September 27th at 3:30 pm at the Bangor Housing Authority.  That polling will inform the Baronial Great Officers of the group’s preference.  The Baronial Great Officers will then be polled at the same meeting and the decision will be announced.

If there are other Baronial Candidates a full formal polling will be conducted using the East King guidelines and in coordination with the EK Polling Deputy.

The deadline for letters of intent is September 22nd.
