I would like to announce an officers meeting for next Wednesday the 11th of December at 7 pm, at the Ainslie Hall. I intend to discuss a more regular schedule for meetings, modification of the hall hire fee’s and next years schedule of events. Please feel free to attend.
This weekend Their Majesties, Niall and Liadan took the fealty oaths of Crispin and Joan, investing them as Baron and Baroness of Politachopolis upon the Fields of Gold!
Unfortunately dance practice will not be on this evening as Joanna is unwell. Dance should resume next week as per the calendar.
Their Majesties have just announced Crispin and Joan as Baron and Baroness designate for Their most glorious Barony of Politarchopolis! The Barony will farewell our beloved Aonghus and Ginevra and welcome Crispin and Joan for Baronial changeover at the Fields of Gold (29 November 2013 – 1 December 2013). See upcoming events for details.
For the outgoing and incoming Barons and Baronesses of Politarchopolis and the glory of the Crown of Lochac, three cheers!
This Wednesday (25 September 2013) sees singers and musicians of the Barony invited to make merry in a casual evening of music making at the Scout Hall in Ainslie (Ebden & Hassall Streets, Ainslie). All levels of experience and talent welcome. Come play, sing or listen!
On 16 October 2013, Mistress Tyghra will be running her class on “How to Reproduce Medieval Jewellery” also at the Scout Hall. The class will start from 6.30pm. You are invited to research a piece you would like to reproduce and bring that information along.
In the near future, Sir Ysambart will be teaching his incredibly useful chest making class. A spinning class is also being organised. Stay tuned for further information.
All confirmed classes are now listed on the Baronial calendar, available on the website.
Keep making shiny things!
At the request of the Crown, Sir Ysambart will today open the Baronial Candidate Survey. This will allow members of the Populace to provide their views to the Crown who will make the decision as to who will lead Their fair lands of Politarchopolis. The site will close on the 29th of September with Their Majesties making Their announcement at Spring War and the Great Southern Gathering.
You will find the survey here.

Next Sunday will be the next Pentathlon judging session. The hall (Scout Hall, Ebden St, Ainslie, ACT) will open at 12noon and judging will start at 1pm.

At this time, we continue to celebrate the work of our most noble Baron and Baroness, Aonghus and Ginevra who have kept these lands in such good keep these past years. The Barony thanks them for their most gracious care.
Greetings to the populace,
To ensure candidates are able to provide excellent applications and to give others a chance who have been considering the role, we will be extending the deadlines for the baronial selection process.
As such the nomination deadline will extend to the 31st of August. Please send applications to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the list of candidates is finalised and the Crown have confirmed that the nominees are acceptable to them, we will publish it ASAP via email and on the website along with each couple’s/candidate’s ‘letter of intent’. Their Majesties will provide the Barony with a list of the nominees after the 31st of August which will enable us to have a Meet the Candidates session, Wednesday the 11th of September 2013 at 7pm at the Ainslie Hall.
For those unable to attend, a video will be available on request from the Meet the Candidates Session. The seneschal will be providing more details about this process and the questions posed to candidates shortly.
The poll will then run for the last two weeks of September (Sunday 15th –Sunday 29th). Their Majesties will then have a few days to consider the responses and make Their decision in time to announce it at Spring War and Great Southern Gathering.
We would like to remind people that Letters of Intent need to include a description of themselves as well as their history in the SCA and their plans if they are selected, and noting that nominees don’t need to be resident within the barony if they can show that they can fulfil the duties of the office and can demonstrate a history of active participation in the group.
Once the Crown have made Their decision, They will inform the candidates before announcing that decision at Spring War and Great Southern Gathering. We will then to publish that decision on the website and the mailing list.
