BFS News for January 8, 2018

posted Jan 8, 2018, 6:20 AM by Forgotten Sea


  • Visitor at Practice: This Wednesday we will have a guest visiting from Æthelmearc, Sir Tristen. Please come and help us show him a good time!
  • Quarterly Reports: Officers and Marshals, there is one week until your quarterly reports are due.
  • Curia: Curia is this week. You can view the notes from last month's Curia here. (Though, please note the referenced wireweaving class has since been rescheduled to the 4th Wednesday of this month.)
  • Kris Kinder Event Review & Brainstorming Session: "Greetings!  On the evening of January 10, 2018 [Editor's note: THIS WEEK] we will be having a general discussion on what went well with Kris Kinder 2017, and what could be improved.  The meeting will be held after Curia, where BFS fighter practice is held. Curia is usually over between 7:30 and 8 PM. (ask kk_eventsteward@bfs-kc.org for address if needed)

     Our attendance for 2017 was 645 adults and kids (another new record!), and we had 45 merchants – which was on or over the number for the past several years. Profits from the event have not been finalized as of this writing, but will be announced when known, and are expected to be as usual (just over $5000 last year).

     After we discuss the Kris Kinder just past, if anyone has ideas for Kris Kinder in general – site, pricing, activities – we can talk about those as well.  If possible, please bring real cost information for your ideas.  If you need historical data in order to develop your ideas, please let Ylva ( kk_eventsteward@bfs-kc.org) know at least a week ahead and she will try to find it for you.

     We are not likely to make any big decisions here, or come to any momentous conclusions.  Let’s just do some open-minded brain storming and see what we come up with."

Upcoming activities:

  • Mon Jan 8, 6:30pm - 8:30pm Loch Bheathrach/BFS Archery Practice at the Kearney site. (Contact Master Lief of Crescent Moon for more information, lbh-archery@bfs-kc.org)
  • Wed Jan 10, 6pm - 9pm BFS Fighter Practice & Curia at the Irene B. French Community Center, 5701 Merriam Dr, Merriam, KS 66203. (C&T fighters, please wear non-marking shoes.)
