  • No announcements next week: There will be no announcements next week, as we will be at Lilies. This newsletter will cover both weeks.
  • No fighter practice next week: This week, the 7th, we will have practice like normal. Next week, there will be neither BFS nor Aston Tor fighter practices due to Lilies.
  • No Tor Canton meeting/fighter practice this week
  • Curia postponed: Curia would normally be the 14th. It will be the Wednesday following Lilies, the 21st, instead. We will be meeting in the Hocker Grove A room at the Irene B French Community Center in Merriam.
  • 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. If you would like to donate, anyone from Tor can take your donations or point you towards someone who can. Or, please see either of Their Excellencies Søren and Rowan at practice to make arrangements.
  • Lilies Youth Classes: 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.
  • Lilies Gate Shifts: The Barony of Forgotten Sea is covering gate on the first Saturday of Lilies War, 6/10/17. All the shifts have been filled, thank you for volunteering! If you wish to volunteer as backup, please email Ylva@lewis-neff.net or contact Deanna Lewis (Ylva Jonsdottir) on Facebook.
