Greetings to their noble Majesties, Kinggiyadai, Khagan and Altani Khaligu, Yeke Khatun,
While it was with much sadness that we heard the news that Crispin and Joan, Baron and Baroness of Politarchopolis, had announced their wish to retire, we would wish to present this missive as our humble Letter of Intent for consideration as their successors.
Lord Ivan Iaroslavich has been a participant of the SCA since 1997, beginning in the Barony of Southron Gaard, the Kingdom of Caid 20 years ago. During his years in the Society, he has helped to run many feast kitchens, attended working days to assist with the works at festival sites including the building of the fort, as well as assisting with set up and take down at events.
Lord Ivan is an active participant of the Rapier arts, and has recently begun expanding his skills into teaching, and is currently a member of the Politarchopolan Baronial Guard.
Boiarynia Tatianitska Iaroslavna has been an active participant since 1994, also beginning in the Barony of Southron Gaard. Over the past 24 years, she has held various officer positions including A&S, Chirurgeon and Reeve for the Canton of Stowe on the Wowld, Seneschal of the Barony of Rowany, and is currently the Lochac Kingdom Constable.
Boiarynia Tatianitska regularly writes and teaches classes on various A&S topics, and encourages people to try new things and get involved in group projects.
The decision to nominate ourselves has been well thought out, with advice sought from Baron Crispin and Baroness Joan, as well as others of the peers and populace. We believe we would be well supported in the role.
As there is no conflict of interest in holding a Kingdom Office and being a Baroness, Tatianitska would serve the remainder of her term as Lochac Constable.
It would be our aim as Baron and Baroness, to support all members of the populace in their endeavours, and to be a welcoming presence to new and old members alike. We believe we are very approachable, and well skilled in conflict resolution, should it be needed.
We are grateful for your consideration, and are available to discuss any questions you may have for us.
Yours in Service,
Lord Ivan Iaroslavich
