I thought I would include this information so it can be easier to find,

Due to two factors increased hall hire and increased use costs of the Haig park hall are going up, hence the introduction of patronage, give as little or as much as you can the amounts listed are more of a benchmark rather then a requirement.

The first level is a Benefactor, with a donation of $40. Benefactors will receive a certificate.
The higher level of patronage is a Partisan, with a donation of $100.

To register any payment for Patronage email ysambart@gmail.com to ensure you are noted.
Patronage should be paid for by cheque or cash to
SCA Politarchopolis
PO Box 6876
Charnwood ACT 2615

receipted cash payment to the Reeve. Any queries or requests for clarification should be addressed to ysambart@gmail.com

New Baron and Baroness

We have a new Baron and Baroness Aonghus and Ginevra! Well we almost have a new B&B, The Baronial change over details can be found here if you haven’t yet booked for the feast unfortunately the hall is at capacity, you could try your luck and contact the autocrat and volunteer to help on the night.

There are a couple of vacant positions available within the Barony these being, List Keeper, A&S officer and Deputy constable, if you are interested in these roles please contact the seneschal

Also, Her Excellency, Baroness Mistress Isobel has been pestering asking if I could change the masthead image, I think it looks pretty spiffy but she may have some grounds for it to be changed to the new B&B what are peoples thoughts? Should Isobel stay as the masthead or be replaced?

The New Blog

This is the joint blog for the baron, baroness, seneschal and hierophant of the barony of Politarchopolis. It will be updated approximately when one of the above has something to say. You’re welcome to comment here, possibly subject to spam prevention methods if required.

This is Baron Karl Faustus von Aachen. I’m the hierophant at the moment, but as soon as I’ve put the last few finishing touches on this site, I’ll be stepping down in favour of my hard-working deputy, Lord Andreas Reinhardt. So this is my first and last blog post here.

I built this site almost entirely over one weekend, using WordPress, a content management system built around a core of blogging software, after spending entirely too many months trying and failing to build it using other, more complicated underpinnings. Oddly enough, I hadn’t planned to use the blogging side of things at all, but a chat with our seneschal Baron Bart is all it took to inspire me, and now look! Thus, we have a nice simple blog that our seneschal, baron and baroness can use to keep you informed about life in the barony, and our new hierophant can use to tell you about important news of the website.

Please have a wander around the site and let the new hierophant know if you find anything missing, broken or even mildly disappointing. He’s an energetic lad, and I think he’ll get on top of this in no time at all. And in the event that he has an attack of life, other officers also have access to fix things, so I expect it won’t ever get as stale and out-of-date as some sites you find (my previous version of this one, for example!).

So, as I have said many times before, I say one last time in reference to this site: Share And Enjoy!

Yours in Service,

Karl Faustus von Aachen, aka Bat
