  • Tor Tuesday Donations: Aston Tor is seeking donations for the Tor Tuesday party at Lilies. Donations of alcohol or of money are both welcomed. Partial bottles are fine.

Or, please see either of Their Excellencies Søren and Rowan at practice to make arrangements.

  • Practice is Outside: The BFS Fighter Practice is now outside again. Please start paying attention to announcement channels in case of potential inclement weather.
  • Aston Tor Outdoor Practices Resume: Last week it was stated that when Tor's archery practice resumes the weekend after Unslung Heroes, it will be on Sundays from 11am-3pm. There is a correction: it will actually be from 11am-2pm.
  • Award Recommendations: Unslung Heroes, and the Tournament of Horse and Falcons are both approaching rapidly, and both will be attended by the Crown. Be thinking about award recommendations, both at the Baronial and the Kingdom level!

  • Search For A New Fighter Practice/Meeting Location: Our Deputy Seneschal has asked us to look for potential locations to move the weekly fighter practice and populace meeting to. Please reference the list of requirements previously posted at http://www.bfs-kc.org/what-s-new/news-archive/lookingforweeklygatheringplace, and contact her with any potential sites (seneschal@bfs-kc.org). We will be discussing the options so far at Curia next week, so time for proposals is running out!
  • Lilies Youth Classes: As discussed at a prior Curia, Lady Adelaide Sarsfield is organizing BFS' day of youth activities at Lilies. It will be Sunday, and the theme will be Youth Combat. She is looking for fighters to help out, or with gear the classes could borrow. Activities will include making youth combat weapons, a show & tell of some fighters' kits (a spectrum from cheap, bare-minimum armor to fancy, nice armor is desired), practice fixing/maintaining armor, and a chance to try some armor on. If you are interested in helping out, or have an idea for some other class you'd like to teach, even if it doesn't fit that day's theme, please contact her.
  • Quarterly Reports: Officers and marshals, quarterly reports are due soon!
