Remember that we will be uptown in Kingston on Wall Street in front of Catskill Art and Office Supply on 5 and 6 October selling raffle tickets and trawling for new members.
We hope to be there from 10 am until at least 4PM each day, and will stay later if foot traffic merits the effort.
If you have some time, and want to bring something to demo, please do! If you want to come and hang out, please do. Saturday will be the busier day, as the Health Fair shuts down Wall Street.
Fair warning, DO NOT expect to find a close parking spot.
I have received permission to share this:
Proposed changes to EK Law have been posted on the Seneschal’s Pages:
Katherine Barr asked that the following be shared:
Greetings unto all those intending to enter Fall Crown Tournament:
The following is the Crown Tournament format from Their Highnesses:
There will be the standard double elimination up to the Final 16. Then, it will be the best of three per round to the Final 4. Final 4 will be the best of three matched weapons forms. The finals will be the best of five matched forms.
Any questions concerning the format should be directed to His Highness.
Please be aware that both the combatant and the consort must submit a joint letter of intent, either through the following link (preferred): https://surveys.eastkingdom.org/index.php/372252?lang=en or by email to TRH Prinz Wilhelm von Ostenbrücke and Princesse Vienna de la Mer with a copy to the Kingdom Seneschal.
The Letters of Intent must be received prior to 11:59 p.m. on October 3, 2018. If using email, the letters of intent must include all of the following information for both combatant and consort: Society name, legal name, address, telephone number, years of residency, a statement that both the combatant and consort affirm that they do not have knowledge of any legal basis why they would not be able to legally cross the United States/Canadian international border for the duration of their reign, and be accompanied by proof of membership with membership number & expiration date that is valid at least thirty days after Crown. If both entrants are combatants, then that should be clearly indicated.
As a reminder, East Kingdom Law requires that the consorts be present at Crown Tournament.
Should you wish for Their Highnesses to grant any allowable exception to the requirements, be sure to clearly state your request in your letter of intent.
Their Highnesses request that combatants bring heraldic shields for the list trees.
Unto all to whom these presents come, from Alayne as your Seneschale:

Passing this along to you all, by request. While we have no Chronicler, I believe any input would be appreciated.
Tournaments Illuminated Quest Request: Hints for Chroniclers. Kindly share this with your group.
From officers’ letters, event reports and award congratulations, to feature articles on history and how-to, recipe redactions, persona stories and poetry; newsletters offer much to enrich the SCA experience. They also serve communities beyond geographic borders — many guilds boast exemplary newsletters.
Chroniclers, what tips can you offer fellow officers on the never-ending search for content and relevance? What are your favorite sources and sites? How do you set yourself and your authors up for success? What are your popular features? Readers, in your SCA newsletters, what’s the first thing you turn to? What’s valuable to you? What’s fun? What would you like to see? Send your ideas and input (200-300 words) to email@example.com and they may appear in the 3rd Quarter 2018 issue of Tournaments Illuminated.
