BFS News for October 24, 2016

posted Oct 23, 2016, 8:16 PM by Forgotten Sea


  • Their Royal Majesties need award recommendations. Each week we will be highlighting different awards, so you'll not be reading the same thing time and again, but recommendations for any and all awards are desired. This week we will be looking at the Keeper of the Flame. It is an uncommon award, with only 14 recipients in the OP, which is not surprising when you look at the high standards it recognizes. The Keeper of the Flame is given to those who are an exemplar of The Dream. In appearance, actions, and deeds they attempt to create and maintain a medieval atmosphere. They must behave with the utmost honor and courtesy. Submit award recommendations at http://awardrec.calontir.org/.
  • If you are willing to help with Kris Kinder, please contact the event stewards at kk_eventsteward@bfs-kc.org and let them know what you want to help with: Friday night setup, Saturday morning helping merchants unload, a gate shift, or breaking down the merchant area afterwards. Kris Kinder is where the majority of our funds come from to pay for the indoor practice site; especially if you attend practices, please volunteer and help make this event a success!
  • Starting this week Aston Tor will be having indoor practices during their canton meetings, at the same location as the meetings.

Upcoming activities:

  • Mon Oct 24, 6:30pm - 8:30pm Loch Bheathrach Archery Practice at the Kearney site
  • Wed Oct 26, 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. We are experimenting with fighting without mats, and want to be mindful of the community center's floor.
  • Thu Oct 27, 7pm - 9pm Aston Tor Canton Meeting & Fighter Practice at the Walnut Gardens Community of Christ, 19201 E RD Mize Road, Independence, MO
