  • 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. Right now, the available shifts are: 10 AM - Noon, Noon - 2 PM, 2 PM - 4 PM, 4 PM - 6 PM. To sign up, just email Ylva@lewis-neff.net or contact Deanna Lewis (Ylva Jonsdottir) on Facebook. Include your SCA name and which shift(s) you want.
  • BFS Fighter Practice Moved: At previous Curias we had discussed moving the BFS fighter practice/curia to a less expensive location, and discussed possible locations. Due to expected rain, we moved Curia to the Irene B. French community center in Merriam, and at this Curia we decided to stay there going forward, rather than moving back to the Westport/Roanoke community center for a few more practices.
  • Curia Notes: The notes from this month's Curia are available here.

Upcoming activities:

  • Mon May 15, 6:30pm - 8:30pm Loch Bheathrach/BFS Archery Practice at the Kearney site
  • Wed May 17, 6pm - 9pm BFS Fighter Practice at the Irene B. French Community Center, 5701 Merriam Dr, Merriam, KS 66203.
  • Thu May 18, 2016 6pm - 9pm Aston Tor Fighter Practice at Waterfall Park, Independence, MO.
