July Canton Meeting Minutes

Seneschal’s Report

Curia highlights: Events are no longer limited to the I85/I95 corridor.  Sumptuary laws have been removed. Court baronages per reign are now unlimited.  Polling orders require 15 members to be present for a quorum.  The Star of the Sea is now an active award.

Background checks are no longer required for local seneschals – they are still required for Kingdom officers and all youth officers.

Canton policies have been reduced from 12 pages to 5.

Keep up the hard work – it’s being recognized.

The Canton needs for more people to be on the signature card. Stella & Kenya agreed to be added to the card.

Considering issuing a challenge to the Barony: Be as period at events as possible. Canton members will give tokens to people who are being admirably period. Would start next year at the … of the Stone event and continue for a year. This means we’ll all have to step our own game as well.

Canton could consider having a movie night at the drive-in theatre in Eden on the 3rd or 4th of August.  Or maybe a “Sunday in the Park” instead?  Consider the ideas and leave comments on the canton Facebook group.

Exchequer’s Report

We spent $120 to make the canton list fence.  We spent $35 to sponsor feast for newcomers at Flight of the Falcon. Our remaining balance is $1052.53

Webminister’s Report

In a month, the newsletter/blog has received 310 unique visits from 17 different countries.  We’ve also had one link added to the Kingdom A&S page, and Stefan’s Florilegium now links to two of our articles.

A&S Report

This month we had a beer brewing class taught by Sir Kieran and pewter casting taught by Lord Camillo. We need ideas for things to do in August.  In August we’ll have two meetings at Geeksboro, one online, and one project night.
