  • 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 War A&S Classes: The Honorable Lady Brigida von München is looking for more A&S classes, instructors, & lecturers for Lilies War. ​Sign​ up via the Google form here: https://goo.gl/forms/gWFw1ObFsuZ5zw8i1 (no Google email required)​, or contact Brigida directly. Deadline to get classes in the site book is April 7.
  • BFS Practice Heading Outside: Starting in April, the BFS Fighter Practice will be outside again. Once that happens, please start paying attention to announcement channels in case of potential inclement weather.
  • Aston Tor Outdoor Practices Resume: Starting this Thursday, Tor's outdoor fighter practice at Waterfall Park on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Thursday of the month will resume. There will still be practice at the same location as the meetings on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays.
    Tor's archery practice will resume the weekend after Unslung Heroes, on Sundays from 11am-3pm; however, expect that there may be a few weeks around Lilies where it may not happen. Check the BFS calendar, the Tor calendar, or these announcements as the given days approach.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Upcoming activities:

  • Mon Mar 27, 6:30pm - 8:30pm Loch Bheathrach Archery Practice at the Kearney site
  • Wed Mar 29, 6pm - 9pm BFS Fighter Practice at the Westport Roanoke Community Center, 3601 Roanoke Road, Kansas City, MO 64111. Note: Cut & Thrust fighters, please wear non-marking shoes.
  • Thu Mar 30, 2016 6pm - 9pm Aston Tor Fighter Practice at Waterfall Park, Independence, MO.
