According to a post in the East Kingdom Marshal Rules & Clarifications group on Facebook, Marshal's Point at Pennsic this year is sorely in need of volunteers:

This year Marshal's Point is going to need more help than normal. If you're going to help, please plan on spending a few hours at the point helping. If everybody does 3 hours the burden won't be put too heavily on anybody. The work will be weighted toward the beginning of war week. Spread the word to other groups, please.

Archive of Newsletters Needs new Home

A missive from Maister Colyne Stewart, as posted to several Facebook groups:

For several years now I have been collecting every SCA newsletter or magazine that I could get my hands on. However, I am afraid that I no longer have the space for the amassed archive (it takes up 4 or 5 plastic totes). Therefore I am looking for someone to pass these treasures on to. If you are interested in giving this small library of our past a new home, please let me know. 
A partial list of the collection's contents are here.

 If you can house this collection, please contact Maister Colyne.

Letter to Skraeling Althing: Taxes Update

Unto the noble populace of Skraeling Althing do Baron Shahid and Baroness Catherine send greetings.
As you all are aware,We are doing something different for Our taxes this year.
As this is the 40th anniversary of the founding of Skraeling Althing. Our dream is to collect a history of stories from Our Barony, both past and present.
We would ask that all of Our populace work collaboratively to write stories of our history, both the distant past and recent events.  The Honourable Lady Eluned verch Angor has agreed to work as Our archivist, and compile these stories.  She can be contacted here.
Please note, while the deadline for taxes has traditionally been Feast of the Hare, the deadline for submissions this year will be August 13th.
This will give us time to have the resulting work bound into a book, which will be on display at The Feast of the Hare.
In Service,
Shahid and Catherine
Baron and Baroness of Skraeling Althing
