Happy New Year!
We hope that you have been able to spend time
with your friends and family over this holiday
season, and brought the New Year in with a Bang!
We have a few things to bring up, however first -
some "Thank Yous"!
Boar's Head staff and volunteers - Thank you for
taking the time to help with the site set up and clean
up, feast was great, and a special mention to the
Royalty Room Liaison who made sure everything
was wonderfully organized and put together. It was
absolutely great how you were able to meet all of
the needs throughout the day.
Shire of Silfren Mere - For being flexible and
agreeing to have the Sleeve within the Shire
boundaries. There are a lot of people that I would
like extend my gratitude to; however I know there
is only so big of a page, so I have a few special
mentions. Master Gevehard for pulling together a
site and all the details so quickly for the Princess
Sleeve and the encouragement to get ready for the
Sleeve. Mistress Deja/Her Excellency Leona/Dame
Sibyl for taking time to assist with making sure my
armor was good to fight in. Lady Giulia Di Grazia
and team, thank you for all your work on the
tokens for the fighters. Honorable Lord Ahlwin/
His Excellency Robert/Master Edward/Master
Tomas for assistance in getting all the details
worked out with the format of the tournament
over the last few years. With all of you together,
I was able to accomplish a goal that I've been
plotting and planning for a few years now (actually
after we completed our first reign). I appreciate it
from the bottom of my heart.
As we dive into 2018, there are a few things that I
would like to bring to light as we get closer to our
coronation. We love to see all the uniquely crafted
awards that are given out at court! However we
also understand that it takes time for these items
to be completed and want to make sure the scribes
have enough time to complete these awards. We
are asking the populace to please update your
profile on the Northshield website with your
prospective events. This helps others submit awards
easier. Second, please put in recommendations for
awards at least six weeks in advance. We know
that it sounds like a long time out, but we would
like to try our best to give our scribes a month's
notice of our court lists so those lovely pieces of art
have enough time to be completed. Third, thank a
Scribe! If you get an award and are able to please
reach out to them and say thank you for their skill
and their time that is put into these awards.
We have a full schedule over the next few months
and are looking forward to seeing everyone! Please
take care and be safe this winter.
Luce and Yngvar
