   4. Items from other officers:  Kingdom Minister of Arts & Sciences, Kingdom Earl Marshal, Kingdom Webminister, and Kingdom Chronicler

Seneschal: Eysteinn was unable to attend Crown because of mundane events. She confirmed she could appoint a deputy; THL Aneira Applegate agreed to fill in.
Discussion was opened and is ongoing on two law changes:  the first about having Kingdom Champions, the second about Stallari Council meeting requirements.

Webminister: Abelard advised of the upcoming Web host update and the increase in price of $1/month.

Chronicler: Belle requested the Council to approve her suggestion of a replacement chronicler in case her fighter won Fall Crown and she had to step down.  Council approved.

A&S: Eithni submitted the name of Annetje van Leuven to take over the position of KMOAS in February.  Council approved.

Exchequer: Baroness Apollonia submitted her resignation as Kingdom Exchequer.  Council accepted. Master Michael St Christian was approved as interim exchequer.
Michael submitted the name of Dyonisia Buleheued for Kingdom Exchequer Emergency Deputy.  Council approved, and suggested the position of Kingdom Exchequer be advertised in the Northwatch.
Michael found Northshield window clings and CDs of music recorded by Northshield bards among the exchequer boxes. He suggested they be used for a travel fund fundraiser.  Council approved.
Polaris Herald: Meredith was contacted by a Laurel’s apprentice from Calontir who was given a quest: to learn who is the oldest person in the SCA to win Crown for the first time.  In Northshield that honor belongs to our current royals, Kaydian and Cassandra.

KEM: The Archery Handbook was outdated, had formatting issues, and was missing some items.  Crispin worked on it, and Lars submitted it to the Council for commentary.
