Weekly Announcements for BFS - December 9th, 2019

posted Dec 9, 2019, 6:29 PM by Forgotten Sea


Curia is Wednesday at 6:30 pm. Warlord tourney is at 7 pm.

 

Warlord Tourney Wednesday

 

Calling all Armored fighters! On Wednesday, December 11, I will hold a Warlord Tourney to choose my replacement as Champion for the upcoming Baronial Excellencies. Please bring all of your weapon systems. It will start as a single elimination but will end in a melee. See you then!

Fundraiser for New Fighting Mats

 

Bring your donations, cash or goods, to Brian Robert MacDougall on Wednesday. Donated items will be sold at Kris Kinder.

 

Pick up – and pay for – your used fighter mats. The rest will go on sale Saturday.

 

Carpool to Kris Kinder

 

Because parking space is very limited, the event steward encourages everyone to carpool to Kris Kinder this weekend. Remember, we can’t park on the grass or along the driveway.

 

Kris Kinder Volunteers Needed

 

Mistress Aidan Cocrinn still needs volunteers for set up Friday Dec. 13 from 6 pm until set up is done. Contact kk_eventsteward@bfs-kc.org if you can commit a few hours to this.

 

Mistress Svana also needs volunteers for gate. Contact her about open shifts at kk_gate@bfs-kc.org.

 

Remember, Kris Kinder is the event that pays for our fighter practice site all year. Pitch in a few hours to help.

 

Coronation Pre-Pay and ePay

 

Just four weeks after Kris Kinder is Coronation. Would you or your friends like to pre-pay your gate fees? Then we need trained PayPal volunteers to step up now.

 

Why? The Barony can’t open Coronation pre-pay until we identify the PayPal volunteers who will work gate the day of the event.

 

Volunteers need to send a message to coronation_eventsteward@bfs-kc.org listing this information:

 

·       Desired gate shift time slot

·       SCA and modern name

·       Membership number and expiration date

·       Model of phone you will use

·       Your phone number and email

 

Once we have this information from some trained PayPal volunteers, we can add pre-pay information to the Coronation website and event page.
