A Baronial message and progress, your invitation to the upcoming Feast of St Brigit as well as the menu and recent business meeting notes are included in this issue
As I announced back in September, I am stepping down as Webminister after Mid-Winter’s. I no longer have the time to dedicate to running our website. If you are interested in stepping up as Webminister, here are the things you need to know.
First and foremost you should know how to use our website. If you have not already, you should register for the website. The site is mostly automated, but you cannot maintain it (easily) without editor privileges. Beyond that, click around and navigate the site yourself. Try to get an understanding of the logic of the site. You will be free to change that logic when it’s your turn, after all.
The second requirement is like unto the first: you need to know how to use WordPress. The nice thing about WordPress is there is a ton of information on how to get the most out of it on the internet. The most important resource is the WordPress Codex. If you ever need an answer quickly, doing a search on your search engine of choice or on YouTube can be very helpful.

Good Day Atlantia,
Even though it is very cold here in the north, Lochmere practice is on. If there is any change I will try to get notice out by 3PM.
For those practitioners of rapier combat, specifically Cut & Thrust, I would like to being work on the new tournament format I suggested. I would appreciate someone bringing C&T long swords to practice (we need two). We will start with 30 sec counted blows. I intend to train both fighters and judges.
Look forward to seeing everyone.
Alric The Mad
