SCA Board Meeting in Pittsburgh, October 24, 2015

[Originally posted to the AEthelmearc Gazete.]

Mistress Arianna of Wynthrope reports on the SCA Board meeting held in the Debatable Lands on Oct. 24. This is an unofficial report; for the official report, see the Board meeting minutes that will be published at a later date on theSCA Newsletters site.
A quarterly meeting of the SCA’s Board of Directors is much like any other business meeting. The participants wear modern business clothing (some were in suits), they sit at a U-shaped table with the audience forming the fourth side of the square, and they operate under Robert’s Rules of Order with motions proposed, seconded, and approved with a rap of the chairman’s gavel.
Even the topics discussed might not seem out of place in a modern board room: finances, publications, approval of meeting minutes, and changes in procedure took up much of the day. Coffee and tea were served.
Of course, the big difference is that the topics all pertained to the SCA.

Missive from Her Highness

Unto the populace of Ealdormere comes these words from Her Royal Highess
Adrielle patroness of the Arts and Sciences, and QPT Wrangler, greetings.

Queens Prize Tournament is less than a month away and all are welcome. The
competition is geared toward getting people involved in the arts, and entry
is restricted to Novice Artisans - specifically those who have an AOA arts
award or less. The idea is to provide some mentorship for newer artisans by
the Crucible and Laurels. The entrants get some feedback and have the
opportunity to meet others who do similar stuff. It also is a great
opportunity for folks to hone their judging skills. Folks who just want to
see the cool stuff being made are also more than welcome to come out.
