From Minister of Arts & Sciences, Samia al-Kaaslania, on social media:
On Wednesday, July 22 we will host Rumpelstiltskein Show and Tell with Dame Medb (M Renata Fossett). This is an opportunity for folks to meet one of our arts communities, and the arts community to show off their geek. Please feel free to bring your string (and proto-string) for a night of knit-and-visit.
Owing to the preparations many will be taking in order to attend Warriors and Warlords the following day, the meeting at GPS on the evening of July 8 has been cancelled. Meetings will resume as usual for the business meeting on July 15 in the usual place.
Our Baronial Exchequer, Baroness Amalia St. Edmund, will be stepping down at the end of this August. For anyone interested in learning more about this officer position, please feel free to contact Baroness Amalia at: firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions. A Transition Team consisting of Baroness Amalia (day-to-day, bank), Her Grace Anne Geoffreys of Warwick (Finance Committee), THL Sefa Farmansdottir (Reports) and probably one more (events) will help the new Exchequer learn the job. Tutorials for interested candidates will be held at the June 24th Wednesday meeting. Those who are interested in applying are asked to submit notice of intent to apply to the Baronial Seneschal, Their Excellencies Nordskogen and to the Exchequer by the July 15 business meeting at which time the vote to fill this position will be held. Please note that this is one of the officer positions that must be filled in order for us to remain a Barony and that, of this date, no candidates have come forward.
Greetings unto the Great Hall of Northshield!
Though we have greatly enjoyed our time as Baron and Baroness of Nordskogen it is time we pass on the torch to the next generation. So now begins our search for those who are willing to forge ahead and lead our populace into the future.
We finally have a time on the schedule at CONvergence. We have been assigned to have a calligraphy activity in Connie’s Quantum Sandbox on Sunday, July 5th from 3:30-4:30pm. If anyone is already coming to the convention and can help out, please let me know at: email@example.com. I’m checking on passes for one or two people who aren’t registered. But I’d like to try for people who will already be at the convention to help. Thanks! Ivetta
Get ready for Northshield’s premier summer camping event!
Hosted jointly by the baronies Nordskogen and Jararvellir, the 2015 installment, which will span the weekend of July 9–14 at Osseo, Wisconsin’s idyllic Whispering Pines Campground, boasts improved parking, more cleared space for loud and quiet camping areas, and other site improvements. Visit our expansive merchant’s row, full schedule of classes, activities and displays and non-stop action on all the tournament fields.
For more information about the event and weekend pricing, visit the event website now online at warriorsandwarlords.org.
From the social media desk:
Hello! I will be hosting a Bardic Circle at my house on Saturday, June 13. We will start singing around 2:00 p.m. and go until we’re tired. Allergen warning: We have two cats and a dog. Please contact me directly if you need directions. In service,

Her Excellency Deja, the Baroness of Nordskogen, has announced that there will be a short court at this Wednesday’s meeting and folkmoot.
The votes to select successors to both our Seneschal, Freiin Jutta van der Bruegghen (known as Ivetta), and our Herald, Lord Faelan MacMillan will be held at the May 20 business meeting. The Herald transition will take place in June and the Seneschal will step down following Warriors and Warlords in July.
For the Herald’s position, approval will be sought for the solitary candidate, Checheyigen Oyugun. Two candidates will be presented for the Seneschal’s office, Idonea la Lakere, and Niamh ingen Dhomnail
Your attendance and participation in the electoral process is appreciated by your barony. As ever, voting is restricted to paid members of the society, though the question and answer period is open to everything. Votes by proxy may be provided in advance by email to the Seneschal.
