I. Her Highness Kelinda

Topics covered elsewhere.

II. Their Excellencies Tristan and Eilika

  • A. Their Stellar Excellencies identified a possible difficulty with a gentle from the Barony of Nordskogen known as "Hook" (Bette Dawn Morrow, Minneapolis, MN). The summary recommendation was that HE Eilika should ask this gentle, in front of witnesses (including Mistress Guenievre), not to wear any codpieces at Nordskogen Twelfth Night in January.
  • B. Their Excellencies also inquired after the Northshield seal, which Herr Gevehard von Baden (Garret Bitker, WI) is to manufacture from soapstone. Their Excellencies mentioned that Clare du Saint Denis (Dawn Vukson-Van Beek, Minneapolis, MN) offered to do a die-cast seal more in keeping with Their Excellencies' later-period (future) reign.
  • C. Their Excellencies asked about the discussion and opinions being solicited by Viscount Alasdair (Chris Dark, Burnsville, MN) regarding the Constables. It has been determined that the order needs more definition, and that it should probably not be combined with any other award or order, but consensus on specifics was unavailable.

    [Mistress Guenievre joined the meeting and called it to order at 9:10 a.m.]

  • D. Their Stellar Excellencies mentioned that they would be unable to attend the Althing.
  • E. Their Excellencies hope to begin the formal Pennsic planning process in March. They will be conducting an e-poll on Pennsic prior to assigning camp coordinators.

    2. Lady Moira MacVey (Mary Kay Roberts, Wauwautosa, WI) and Lady Gweniver Kenwyn of Roseveth (Jennifer McNitt, Minneapolis, MN) have applied for the exchequer position.
