So, Emily Whitehouse. Eric France, Chris Adler-France, Orilee Ireland-Delfs, and I toured the Western Presbyterian Church this evening in preparation for Aethelmearc Aecademy.
We'll be posting the menus very soon. The lunch and feast sound great! You do NOT want to miss this feast!

From the Crown Prince of Aethelmearc:

Due to the severe and prolonged winter the planned site for Coronation has been assessed as unusable. Fortunately, through the quick thinking of the autocrat an alternate site has been secured.
And Coronation will now be held at Trinity Memorial Episcopal Church located at 44 Main Street in downtown Binghamton.
This beautiful historic site is capable of supporting all of the activities that were planned for the event. And We are looking forward to a grand and glorious day.
If you have an questions please feel free to contact me at: tindal@faerhaga.org or the Autocrat THL Malcolm Fitz Willelm at gerryhough AT yahoo.com

Thank you all for your understanding in this matter.

magnus Tindal, Imperator Destinatus AEthelmearc

The site opens at 9 AM.

I would love it if Jean Paul would consider coming to Aethelmearc Aecademy in June to teach & display. Can you put me in touch with him?
In this post I would like to highlight and promote the work of Jean Paul Ducasse. Many know of him due to his success within the fencing community, but what is not so obvious is his experimental research into the techniques a...

This appeared today on Facebook. I thought I'd share it here, as well. From Erik Langhans, who is apparently the Social Media Guy for SCA Inc (?):

Erik Langhans
Topic: Advertising for events

Issues:
1) FB is being solely used to advertise
2) Web pages are being solely used to advertise
3) A combo of the two are being used to advertise but one or the other is not being adequately updated.
4) Communication for events is breaking down causing issues such as people feeling excluded when one or the other medium is being solely used.

Stweards/Autocrats are deputy seneschals. I am leaning toward making the following addition to the seneschal's handbook.

Currently for an event to be "published" it must appear in the newsletter. "Published" events allow awards to be given and things of lasting consequence to be done.

Face it folks don't read the newletter much. To be effective and to reach all folks effectively an event communication and marketing plan needs to reach folks on all 3 vehicles: Social media (ie Facebook), Webpage and Newsletter. 

My proposal is to add to the Seneschal's Handbook:

XIII. OVERSEEING KINGDOM EVENTS
A. PUBLICIZED EVENTS
1. Keep track of things that need Kingdom-level publicity. The SCA Inc. no longer makes a distinction between official and unofficial events, but certain things—the installation of Kingdom great officers or a new territorial baronage, the granting of awards, the announcement of law changes, and, of course, Crown or Coronet tournaments or investitures—can only occur at events that have been publicized in advance in the Kingdom newsletter (be it online or printed). 

I AM EXPLORING ADDING
>>>All publicized events in addition to being published in the newsletter, should also strive to advertise the event via social media (ie Facebook) and via a webpage presence which should be kept current and up-to-date.<<<

As a side FYI from Corpora... awards cannot be given at locally publicized events.

THOUGHTS?

Thank you for posting this, Sol. I seldom get to see myself perform. Of course, I see the flaws, and I cringe, but this performance wasn't too very awful.
