BFS News for October 30, 2017

posted Oct 30, 2017, 6:05 AM by Forgotten Sea


  • Kris Kinder: December is fast approaching, and the Kris Kinder event stewards are looking for people to volunteer. There are several roles we will need help in:
    • 8pm, night before: moving tables/chairs and helping clean/prep the event site
    • 6:30am, day-of: helping Merchants unload. Any dollys, carts, hand-trucks-etc would be appreciated. Contact Niall, kk_gate@bfs-kc.org.
    • Day-of: we will need people to work gate shifts. We will begin taking signups for specific shifts after the day's schedule of events starts to develop.
    • Approx 5pm (during Court): helping Merchants pack up and take down tables
    • Immediately after Court: Tor will be handling cleanup afterwards; if anyone else wants to stick around, more help would be welcomed!

      Kris Kinder is our big money-making event for the Barony, and helps pay for our practice site. If you attend the weekly fighter practices, whether you fight or not, please consider helping out with it! Please contact kk_eventsteward@bfs-kc.org if you would like to volunteer.
  • 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:
  • 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.
  • 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.
