Barony of Sternfeld Business Meeting Minutes for July 17, 2014

Baronage Report: Baronial Court at Pennsic will be Saturday, the 2nd of August at O'Dark Thirty. Cerridwynn nic Alister has been selected as the new Baronial Signet.

Seneschal: We haven't made a donation to St. Timothy's since early 2011. We use the site for Baronial Business Meetings and costumer's group meetings once a quarter. After some discussion, a motion was raised to donate $1000 dollars to St. Timothy's to make up for doing so for several years. Motion was seconded and passed. It will be polled on again at the August business meeting. A combination workday and Althing was discussed. The Seneschal is investigating options. Possible dates in early November being considered.

Chatelaine: Made $248 at Simple Day's garage sale. A email came in about Pennsic Camping which got routed to the camp moms. Send Caristonia donations for next year if you want.

Herald: Llewellyn is stepping down. Colette is interested in stepping up. A motion was raised and passed.

Chronicler: See my report in the Star.

Exchequer: Elisabetta's Exchequer warrant runs out at the end of October. Saldis has indicated interest. If you are interested, please contact the Seneschal and Elisabetta. As of the end of June, we had $17530.90. Once everything clears the bank from Simple Day, we will have a similar amount. Included in the agenda were several pages of details about how we've spent money in the last year.

Property Master: The biggest issue needing discussed is getting storage worked out. We've received an offer of free storage at a different location that is monitored by camera. Access after hours with one of the two SCAdians who work there is possible, as is access during the business day for individuals we designate. For insurance to work out right, we may have to rent the space for $1 a month. After a polling it was decided that this was a good idea and we are moving forward with it. There will be a moving day to move out of the current space after Pennsic.

Heavy: We have two new fighters.

Rapier: Things are normal.

Archery: Has been meeting regularly.

Equestrian: Did not meet in July due to two equestrian events in July. Simple Day went well but doesn't work well at that site. We should have two new Marshals by October. Next practice is in August.

Chirurgeon: No report this month.

Arts and Sciences: There were a few classes at Simple Day. Send reports of what Arts and Sciences activities you attend at Pennsic.

Dance: English Country is the 2nd Thursday in August.

Costumers: Does not meet in August due to Pennsic.

Web Minister: We have a website. See my report in the Star.

Lost and Found: We've got some nice Lost and Found items over two years old we cannot find the owners of. They may end up being prizes at a future event.

Crown Tournament: Final Reporting and a written Postmortem has been completed.

Simple Day: Simple Day was painless. Total count was just under 400 people. Most of the negatives she's heard are small. Thanks to everyone who made this event a success. A survey went out for postmortem. 110 Adults arrive Friday, 242 arrived Saturday, 8 children Friday and 30 children Sunday. Feast sold 75 seats, which left us short of expenses. Lunch was profitable and there were a lot of compliments. There was a concussion on the Heavy List. There were concerns that there were no pickles or oranges for the fighters.

Signage: Ronan passed around a sample sandwich board. He'd like to add making of these directional signs to be completed by BWTA.

PPPPP: A motion for a budget of $300 for PPPPP was raised, seconded, and passed.

BWTA: February 7th, 2015, Waldetrudis is the event steward. A second polling on the budget of $2500 passed. $150 budget for archery supplies and $50-100 budget for dancing supplies was freed up from elsewhere in the $2500 budget. The amount spent on the event will be lower if it isn't also Constellation Arts and Sciences Faire. Plans ongoing for Bardic and other things. Lunch and Feast are being planned. The Golden Jubilee/Valentine's Day may be the theme. A reservation check needs to be sent to the Hendricks County 4H Fairgrounds to hold the date.

Simple Day 2015: We need a bid by November's business meeting for July 10th through July 12th, 2015.

Event Sites: We need to find new event sites that work if possible.

Demos: Possibility of doing demos, including Riley Days again was discussed.

Pennsic is very soon--please pay heed to Ronan and Rois for instructions on paying camp fees, providing tent dimensions, etc.

We have one volunteer so far for the vacant Herald office, Colette, and will poll at the July business meeting. We also need a new Baronial Signet.

Thank you for putting on a Simple Day where nothing imploded or exploded and paperwork was at a minimum. Waivers are off in the mail, and event reporting is proceeding apace--if you need reimbursement for an event expense, please bring receipts to Moira and Elisabetta ASAP.

I was particularly impressed this weekend by our lunch crew and our new location for lunch--and I heard compliments from all over that tell me I'm not alone. The event stewards have more specific thanks and they have the floor.

Barony of Sternfeld Emergency Finance Committee Meeting Minutes for June 19, 2014

Due to the need for Johann to be able to purchase food for the feast for Simple Day (which is before the next business meeting), the emergency finance committee met and passed a second polling on the motion to approve a budget of $800 for Simple Day feast.

Barony of Sternfeld Business Meeting Minutes for June 19, 2014

Baronial - Baronial Court is going to be Saturday of the middle weekend. We have two volunteers interested in the Baronial Signet - this is not a polled position. Grainne and Cerydwynn are both interested - anyone with opinions on the candidates please contact the Baron and Baroness. Thanks to both for their interest. Please send in Baronial and Kingdom Award Recommendations.

Seneschal - Things are going "ok". No one has caused a huge amount of paperwork. Event Steward paperwork is being made available for prospective autocrats - that will be coming in the next few months. Fall and Winter priority will be to complete the revision of the Bylaws. Wulfwen is the deputy for this project. If interested in helping in the early stages please talk to Ysabel and/or Wulfwen. Recruitment and retention will be another big focus for the fall.

Herald - The position is open. Colette is interested in the position and no one else has expressed interest. Polling will be next month. If interested, please contact the Seneschal.

Chronicler - Attended training and is now officially warranted. Published May late. June will not be published late - expect it in the next day or two. Send Antonio articles.

Exchequer - We have $17,707.79 in the bank currently. Saldis is now acting as deputy so that Elisabetta can step down.

Property - Some of our less used property was damaged due to flooding. Ronan found a storage unit with $100/month cost of 20X30. It's in Ladoga, but closer to the current property master than the current location. A free storage site was offered here in town - but not accessible at all times. We are looking into options. A motion was made to approve up to three months storage for $100 a month. The motion was seconded and passed. The Seneschal and Ysabel will be investigating the free option. If you have questions about this option you'd like answered, please send to Ysabel so she can find out an answer.

Armored Combat - We've been having practice. Had a new person last week. There will be fighting at Simple Day.

Rapier Combat - It happens, no paperwork has been needed. We've had 3-5 new people recently. Plan to look into loaner gear due to lots of use (wearing out) and new rules. This will happen in September. Moira is moving up to Regional. Cecily is interested in taking the job with Rurik as her deputy. A motion was made, seconded, and passed - congrats to Cecily and Rurik. Thanks to Moira for her service.

Archery - People are showing up to shoot things.

Equestrian - Had a June practice with six riders in attendance plus one ground crew. July's meeting may not be happening due to other events that weekend.

Chirurgeon - No report.

A&S - Lots of people making great stuff. Keep it up!

Dance - 31 people came to dance this month. Four of them were SCAdians. Next dance practice is 2nd Thursday of August.

Cooks/Bards - Will not be meeting in July. Met in June, only five people showed up.

Ars Rustica - A bunch of people are going to Knowne World Cooks and Bards - several people are teaching. Wulfwen and others are presenting the Feast Survey results at this event.

Largesse - we need fingerloop braids for sewing kits (drawstrings).

Costumer - Garb work day occurred this past Saturday. Four attended plus babies. There's another Garb work day coming up soon - watch for announcement on the list. July 3rd is the next Costumer's, which will be at Panera on the north side.

Web Minister - We have a website. Simple Day updates incoming, but mostly we don't have information. Department Heads - email Moira (simpleday@sternfeld.org) and Antonio (webminister@sternfeld.org) with what you are doing. People decide if they are going to events SOON - attendance will be down if there isn't more information.

Prize Czar - If you need prizes for Simple Day, July 4th is your deadline to get something from Grainne - please get in touch with her ASAP.

Youth - We've got several different youth activities planned at Simple Day.

Recent and Upcoming Events:

Crown - May 24th and 25th. Already happened. Stewards: Wulfwen/Moira. Report: Tons of people attended. Over 500 adults and over 50 kids. Records were set for Kingdom A&S Participation. A post-mortem survey went out - please give feedback to improve future planning. Discussion of refund policies occurred but did not lead to anything actionable.

Baronial Birthday - June 8th. Already happened. Steward: Austorga. Report: We had people. It was fun. We were asked by the public if it was a "fancy dress daycare party". Any food that was not used will be used for Simple Day lunch - it's currently frozen in Ronan's freezer.

Simple Day - July 11th-13th. Steward: Moira Eiriksdottir. Update: It's happening. Please use simpleday@sternfeld.org for communication. Please use VolunteerSpot to sign up for shifts. Only Department Heads and Kitchen Cleanup will be comped site fee, but you have to be an SCA member and you have to sign up ahead of time. Especially need Royalty Room Guards. Feast budget was presented by Johann for $800 which includes a whole hog roast, three sides, and dessert. People who cannot have Pork can contact Johann and Fried Chicken or Falafel can be provided - but only enough for the number of people who contact Johann ahead of time. Feast would be $9 per person for tavern-style, $5 for youth 12 and under (smaller portion). A motion was raised, seconded, and passed to approve a budget of $800 for Simple Day Feast.

Accepting Bids for:

Post-Pennsic Picnic - last call for bids. Mistress Joan is willing to act as the Autocrat. She handed out a budget. $100 for Pavilion Rental, $50 for Drinks, $15 for Paperware, $10 for Charcoal, totalling $175. Volunteers would be needed for grilling and cleanup. Discussion occurred. A motion was raised, seconded, and passed for $300 total for the event as the consensus was the amount asked for was slightly lower than would likely work. Austorga is handling cleanup. Waldetrudis is taking lead on cooking (possibly with Wulfwen?).

Baronial Yule - Looking for bids by October. The Baronial Cooking contest would take place at this event.

Better War - last call for bids. Waldetrudis put together a bid for Better War. A handout was distributed. Proposed as a one day event for February 7th, 2014 at Hendricks County Fairgrounds, same site as previous several years. A second proposal was submitted by Grainne for a two day event on February 7th and 8th. She wants to do a lot more publicity for this event, promoting classes, the evening party, etc. Looking to theme as a Venetian event. Lengthy discussion occurred about the merits of both proposals. The prospective autocrats left the room for a polling. After additional discussion, a motion was raised to select Waldetrudis as the Autocrat, but to also ask Grainne and Elisabetta to work with Waldetrudis to integrate some of their ideas to improve the flavor and theming of the event. Both sets of Autocrats reached the same idea during their discussion outside while waiting for the vote.

Demos - None. Please send interested individuals to Ysabel.
