From the Baron and Baroness

Greetings to all! We hope that everyone has been able to stay warm and safe with the weather this past week. We would also like to take the opportunity to remind everyone that cold winter days are a good time to start taking care of those projects and armor repairs that have been place on those never-ending to-do lists. Especially if you are planning to go to Gulf War...it's closer than you think.😊 Looking forward to seeing you all at fighter practice!


From the Seneschal

The goodie basket from TRMs will be at FP on Wednesday for the event & feast staff.


From the Arts and Sciences Minister

If you would be interested in attending a class on any of the following subjects, please email artsandsciences@bfs-kc.org:

     Basic Roman Garb (Clothing)

     Making Lucet Cord (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucet)

     Beginning Narrow Weaving (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inkle_weaving)

 If there are art or science subjects related to the Middle Ages that you would like to learn more about or teach, please let me know. Most of the Baronial classes take place during fighter practice and at the same venue, but other times and places are possible.

New Baronial A&S Champion Needed

My time as Baronial A&S Champion ended when TE Soren and Rowen stepped down, and as such, TE Kendall and Alianora find themselves in need of a new champion.

To that end, we will hold a Baronial A&S competition in late April or early May, either at Unslung Heroes or weekly fighter practice. We'll nail down the date as we get closer, but we wanted to make sure everyone had plenty of time to work on their entry.

The theme for this competition is to "make something for your persona." Have you ever heard the expression "the cobbler's children go barefoot"? I know way too many artisans who put off their personal projects to work on things for others. So I'm gonna make you all be selfish for a while. Do you need some new garb? A brooch? New knife? Some cheese? Write up a 3x5 notecard (although more is preferred) including when and where it would be from and enter it! (And you better not give it away afterwards. Except maybe the cheese.)
