From the Seneschal


Curia will be held online this Wednesday on Google Meet (see above) but at a new, hopefully more friendly, time of 7 pm. I encourage all to sign on and participate.


Spring Crown Tourney


After much effort and many snags, our bid for Spring Crown Tournament was passed over for the bid from Three Rivers. We wish them the best of fortune that this event actually occurs and that new Heirs to the Thrones of Calontir can be selected! I know that this is an important task that Their Majesties feel a heavy burden to complete.


Special thanks and recognition to Andromir for all his time, effort, perseverance and patience putting up with me in planning and battling to create and submit the Spring Crown Bid!


Bloody Trident Inn


We will move forward with planning for the rebirth of the Bloody Trident Inn event this spring! This is something that Their Excellencies and I along with the entire populace are most impatient to resurrect!


Officers Needed


Letters of Intent for the Deputy Knight’s Marshal for Rapier position will be accepted until Wednesday at the beginning of Curia. We are still in need of a new Knight’s Marshal, and a Drop-Dead Deputy Knight’s Marshal. The preference is to have them in place in October. Still also in need of a Deputy Seneschal.


New Practice Site


We still need to find a new practice site should we be able to return to in-person fighting activity before spring or summer is fully upon us. Ideas and suggestions are welcome and needed!


Laird Brian Robert MacDougall


New A&S Minister!


Our new Arts and Sciences Minister, the Honorable Lady Ysabel de la Oya, has asked BFS members to let her know what kinds of classes you would like to see. Contact her at artsandsciences@bfs-kc.org.


Archery Permits No Longer Available at Walmart, Other Retailers


You can still get your archery permits at the Shawnee Mission Park office (the building you see as you enter the park from the Renner Road entrance). Contact Mathurin for more information at archer-marshal@bfs-kc.org.


Archery practice will be from 1 pm to 3 pm Sunday at the Shawnee Mission Park archery range. The archery line is shaded. Remember to bring your own water and wear a face mask.

Old Mats Still Available


We still have a significant number of the old mats available, mostly pink, some light blue. They are sitting in my (Brian’s) garage taking up space. If anyone wants to make arrangements to come and get some for one dollar each, contact me at seneschal@bfs-kc.org or Brian Deaver on Facebook.
