The poll is open to anyone. Greatest weight is assigned to the wishes of the people in the affected
postcodes but the wishes of members in other groups, especially the parent group, will also be
considered. Non-members are invited to respond but may not override the wishes of members. The
wishes of minors over 16 may also be taken into account. There are currently 31 members within
these postcodes. The Kingdom Seneschal will follow up with them if they do not vote. The poll
sheet will be available at Nov Crown, as well as electronically. The poll needs your name, mundane
name, area you live, membership number and has a yes/no agreement box. The Kingdom Seneschal
will also be accepting emails on firstname.lastname@example.org with opinions on the new group
when the poll opens.
This will be published in Stormscroll. Antonia will put more details up on Stormlist.
New equipment- put on hold indefinitely as it will be changing to Baronial projects.
November Crown- So far 133 bookings and five refunds. Simon needs help, so please contact him if
anyone can help. There is $2,250.84 still waiting to be paid from bookings. Janet is looking for
bedding and drivers to pick up people from the airport.
St Barts wind up- The AGM only had one attending, so is not an official AGM according to Melb
Uni’s rules. So Gindi is recommending that the College go dormant in the SCA, but it will take an
extra year at Melb Uni. There is a locker that needs to be cleared out, and things to be stored at the
Monday night hall for general use. The Tuesday night hall hired by St Barts was using a grant by
Melb Uni, so happy to keep it running until gone but it will need to become a Stormhold event.
However, the Tuesday night hall could be an option for dancing, or transferring the rapier training
to the Thursday night hall to increase the numbers there. Gindi will negotiate with the hall about
extending the hours. Actioning next month.
Seneschal- Miriam Staples has stepped in as Deputy Seneschal due to Rosalyn being ill. Ros is
starting to recover, so will be transferring back duties as she improves.
Reeve- The current balance is $21,928.93. It will drop $400 very soon due to need to make
payments. This does not include Crown, which will need to be all closed off by December.
Heavy Marshal- Preparing for November Crown and William Marshal. There has been no injuries.
Hrothgar from Cairnfell and Margie from the eastern group have both reported.
Rapier-Nothing to report.
Capt. Of Archers- Apologies.
Herald- Apologies. Organising heralds for November Crown.
A&S- Apologies. Organising for November Crown.
Constable- David Eden is currently away. Doug Aplin will take over but need to organise an official
Hospitaller- currently vacant.
Chronicler- Apologies. Very busy in her work, but Stormscroll still coming out. Antonia will put
something in Stormscroll about the poll.
Web- Working today. Calendar fixed.
Chirurgeon- Apologies. Still organising a lot of things for November Crown. Please contact Craig if
able to help at Crown.
Proposed eastern group- No report.
Canton of Cairnfell- Chris is still the official Seneschal but Valdemar has taken over. A handover
needs to be organised. An equestrian event has been approved by Rosalyn.
Thursday night hall cupboard has been emptied out. The two registered keys will need to be
returned once the hall use has stopped. Can we run rapier in the hall? Leave for next meeting.
Meeting closed 8:35pm.
