From Their Excellencies, December 28, 2017 CE

Unto the Good People of One Thousand Eyes, received these warm greetings from Avelyn and Alan, Baroness and Baron of this noble Barony!

We write this missive to you in Yule time, hoping your homes are warm and snug against the cold and wind.  But even though the nights are long, the day light increases with each sun rise, and soon we will see warmer weather comes, and the green of Our lands return.

We welcome the New Year, and all that it brings.  The past year was full of positive changes for the Barony, and We look forward to even more positive movement forward.

On January 20, the Soaring Peacock’s event will be held at the York Grange, just south of Idaho Falls.  We encourage you to come out and share some fun and fellowship in mid-winter.

On March 17, Our Baronesses Championship will be held, again at the York Grange.  There will be fun and fighting and all manner of good times to be had.  As this falls on St. Patrick’s Day, the mood of the event will mirror that celebration.

Last, but hardly least, Uprising will be held June 13-17, Wednesday through Sunday.  This will be Uprising 31, and We hope to start the 4th Decade of Uprising off with a wonderful event.  Classes, merchants, fighting, archery and the magic of Uprising will be enjoyed by all.  Plan your vacation time to attend and have fun with Us!

More details on all these events will be found elsewhere in the Argus.

We will be traveling to other groups throughout Artemisia, and beyond.  We highly encourgage you  to travel.  We frequently have space in our vehicles, and would love to give you a ride with Us.

Finally, We do challenge each of you to do two things this next year.  First, We would challenge you to write and article for the Argus, about something you wish to share with the rest of the populace.  Any articles will be cheerfully accepted!  Second, and possibly even more important, We challenge each of you to bring a new person into the SCA this next year.  Introduce others into the wonderful world We all share!

A Message from the Peacock Thrones

Unto the Good People of One Thousand Eyes, receive these greetings from Avelyn and Alan, Baroness and Baron of these wonderful lands.

The 30th Baronial Birthday celebration went very well.  The weather was fine, the fighting was fierce and the friendship wonderful.  We were very happy to announce the newest member of the Peacock’s Pride as Baron Sir Yuri the Yaksplaner.  Vivat!!!

It is a notable thing for a group to keep going for 30 years, and we have full confidence Thousand Eyes will continue for many more years into the future.  This is due entirely to the people of the Barony.  You all add to the greatness and legacy that is Thousand eyes.  We are so humbled to belong to such a fine group of people.

Other wonderful and exciting news!  At the Kingdom Arts and Sciences Competiton, Honorable Lady Ariadne the Flaxen Haired emerged as Kingdom Champion.  Vivat to Ariadne!  There were some amazing entries into the competition, and Artemisia should be proud to have such fine artisans.  We in Thousand Eyes are even more honored to have Ariadne as a prized member of our populace.

December 12, at 7:30 pm, is the next Baronial Populace and Business meeting.  It will also include a Christmas potluck dinner.  Please try to attend and celebrate a great past year for Thousand Eyes.  The meeting will be at the Charter School in Blackfoot.

January 20, 2018 will be our next event, to be held at the York Grange, just south of Idaho Falls.  Please make plans to attend.  A good time will be had by all.  The Estrella War, in the warm south of Atenveldt (Phoenix, AZ) will be in February, following Presidents Day.  A fun winter break and a great shopping trip!  March 17, will be Baronesses Champion event, again held at the York Grange.  We will welcome the spring back at this event!

Thanks to all of you who labor so hard to make Thousand Eyes a success.  Please try to find new people to introduce to the SCA and the fun that we have here in the Baroniy.  New members are the life blood of any group, including our Barony.

Unto the People of 1000 Eyes,

The Barony is still in need of a few officers. This is a perfect opportunity to share your talents and help the Barony at the same time.

Knight Marshall: This office has been open for several months and it is a required office so please give rise to this great opportunity. Anyone interested in becoming Our Knight Marshal, send a letter of intent to myself (Seneschal), Their Excellencies, Duke Basil (our temporary Knight Marshal) and the Kingdom Knight Marshall.

Herald: We also need letters of intent for the office of Herald. HL Aurora has been running the office in the meantime. Anyone interested in becoming Our Herald should send a letter of intent to myself (Seneschal), Their Excellencies, and Kingdom Herald.

Youth: This office is temporarily closed per Kingdom but before to long we will be needing an officer for this position as well.

Web Minister: This office is now open for letters of intent. The current officer is Lord Thorger and his tenure will be ending soon. As current officer, he is still eligible to submit a letter of intent. Anyone interested in becoming Our Web Minister, send their letter of intent to myself (Seneschal), Their Excellencies, and Kingdom Web Minister.

The offices of Knight Marshall and Herald will close as soon as a letter of intent is accepted.  The office of Web Minister will be open for 2 months. Letters of intent for this office are due no later than February 1st, 2018.

I encourage the populace of 1000 Eyes to consider submitting a letter of intent for one of the above offices. It takes a Barony to run the Barony and this is the perfect opportunity to help strengthen YOUR Barony.
