BFS News for October 23, 2017

posted Oct 23, 2017, 5:49 AM by Forgotten Sea


  • Curia Notes: The notes from October's Curia are available here.
  • Baronial Maps Fundraiser: Hugo is making a limited run of 25 prints each of his Forgotten Sea and Vatavia maps. The prints are $25 each, with profits going to the respective baronies. Shipping for one or both will be $7 if you want them mailed to you (no charge for delivery at an event or local BFS practice).
    The maps will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. Email the following information to Hugo at HvHarlo@WillPhillips.org to place your order:
    1. Your SCA Name
    2. Do you want a BFS map, a Vatavia Map, or both?
    3. Do you want the map(s) mailed to you? If so, what is your mailing address?
    4. Do you want to pick the map(s) up at an event? Which one? If you want a map to be delivered beyond Toys for Tots, please be prepared to pay for your order up front.
Payment will be taken via PayPal or cash.
  • Armorer Sought: The American Welding Society is interested in having one of our members come talk at one of their meetings about how we make our swords & helmets. If you are interested, please contact Caitlin, seneschal@bfs-kc.org.
  • Content sought for upcoming Clarion:
    The December issue of the Baronial newsletter is dedicated to Arts and Sciences.
    Here are some ways you can really help:
         1. Advice - 1-5 Sentences on getting started in SCA Arts and Sciences.  What was your first A&S project?  Any A&S Competition advice?
         2.  Local resources - Where do you go for fabric, yarn, equipment, information, etc.?
         3. Kingdom / online resources - What websites  do you recommend for your projects?  Who teaches?
    These kinds of Clarion submissions would not need a Creative Works Release Form.  
    The Clarion is always looking  for articles; a longer piece on a project or research you have done, a recipe, games, handicraft, artwork, notes from a class - anything really. This kind of Clarion submission would need a Creative Works Release form.
    A photograph needs a Photographer's Release form.
    Any recognizable face in a photo needs a Model Release form.
    All forms are available at http://chronicler.calontir.org/  under  FORMS AND DOCUMENTATION.
    I will help to make the paperwork as easy as possible.
    The deadline for submissions is December 10, 2017
    Email comments, questions and responses to:
  • Award Recommendations: Their Majesties will be visiting our Barony once more for Kris Kinder. If there is someone you have seen doing something worthy of recognition, submit an award recommendation! Don't assume that someone already has an award; check the OP. You need not be a member of an order to recommend somebody for it.
