    A&S Classes: "Happy New Year, Forgotten Sea! I’m starting to work on possible A&S classes for The Barony. Below are some of the things that I would like to learn, as well as suggestions from other people. If you would be willing to teach any of these topics, or any others, please send me a PM, or talk to me at Fighter practice or Curia.

Presenting a class in a smaller and less formal setting can be a good way to get it ready for a larger venue like a war or seminar. Thanks for sharing your knowledge! Ylva (artsandsciences@bfs-kc.org)

Basket making, Block printing, Brewing, Calligraphy, Cheese making, Entering Competitions, Hand Sewing, Heraldry – Book or Vocal, Making Silk Banners, Metal Casting, Metal Stamping (jewelry), Naalbinding, Painting preprints, Period Food (for personal use or inns at events), Persona Development, Soap making, Spinning Fiber, Waxed Linen, Weaving"

    Quarterly Reports: It's that time again! Be sure to get your quarterly reports in before the appropriate deadlines! Some offices may also have additional annual reports.
Google is discontinuing Google Plus in first quarter of next year. We will be winding down our Google Plus usage in January. If this is your only source of announcements, please consider finding another source in that time.

    The Barony is seeking a deputy Exchequer to train as Mistress Anna Plantyn's replacement whose warrant expires in January. This is a vital office for our group; please consider it if you have any interest. Interested candidates should contact Anna.

    Deputy Officers: We are now looking for deputy officers for the Exchequer, Fountain Pursuivant, Social Media Officer, A&S Minister, and Archer Marshal. If you have questions or would like to apply, please email the relevant office, baronage@bfs-kc.org and seneschal@bfs-kc.org.
