From the Baron and Baroness

People of One Thousand Eyes, receive these greetings from Avelyn and Alan, Baroness and Baron,

Spring and warmer weather is upon Our Barony, and We are excited with all the fun things that are coming up, and progress within the Barony.
But first, We are very happy to announce that Artemisia’s Heirs to the Gryhon Throne is TRH Yuri and Summayya! In a very clean Crown
Tournament, Yuri and Summayya emerged victorious over a field of 17 competitors. We are sure that TRH Yuri and Summayya’s reign will be fun and exciting!

May 19 will be our Baronial gathering. It will be held at the Idaho Falls summer fighter practice site on the Greenbelt. We will start at 12:00 noon,
and have a potluck lunch. Following that, we will have both an armored fighting tournament and a rapier tournament. We will finish up about 5:00.
This will be a fun, laid back event. It will also be an excellent recruiting opportunity. Please plan on coming and enjoying each other’s company!

Uprising is moving along great! There are a number of fun classes, fighting scenarios, shopping opportunities, and fun with friends.  The Uprising website is up, the address is www.uprisingwar.com. Any information you
could wish for can be found there. Please complete the pre-registration form, so that we may properly plan for the number of people who will be attending this great event.

July 14 will be Our Baronial Archery gathering. It will be held at the Uprising site. Like last year, this will be our Baronial Archery Championship Tournament. There will be interesting medieval based archery challenges offered to test the skills and good humor of all competitors.

Effective immediately, Fighter Practice has moved to Idaho Falls. We will meet at the Roger’s Building, with fighting at the nearby Park. When the
evenings are warm enough, we will return to the Green Belt fighter practice site.

We urge each of you to find a new person to bring into the SCA. Recruiting needs to be a top priority for each of us. To maintain a strong vibrant
Barony, new people are needed.

Yours, in service to the Barony
Avelyn and Alan

Fighter Practice has Moved to Idaho Falls for the Summer

Fighter Practice has Moved!
We’re at the Rogers Building in Idaho Falls for the summer.
Warmer temperatures and longer days allow us to make use of this lovely park space, and last Thursday drew 3 guys in armor and a number of rapier fighters.  It’s going to be a fabulous summer for everyone to get outside in the fresh air and knock the rust off their fighting game.

Come join us!

How Uprising Pre-Registration Works

Due to a policy at the Kingdom level, the Barony cannot accept money in advance for the event.  (It’s a little more complicated than that, but this is the effective policy.)

However, we very much would like to know how many people are coming, so that we can order enough porta-potties, have enough trash cans, provide land registration, parking, and other amenities.

So, we’re asking you to fill out a pre-registration, just like you would anyway.  We’re also telling you that you should not send any money with your pre-reg forms.  People on the pre-reg list get the discounted rate for the event, and will be able to get land allotments just like they normally would.    Everyone else pays the at-gate rate.

This is the link to the Pre-registration form for the event:
Uprising31Pre-RegForm

Merchant space is free, just register using the form below.  Note that Merchants *also* need to complete a pre-registration form for the event:

From the Their Excellencies — April 2018

Unto the Good and Noble People of One Thousand Eyes,
Greetings from Avelyn and Alan!

We hope these greetings find you well and your manors in good condition from the long winter. Spring is finally in the air, and We are sure that all welcome it.

The Baronesses Championship was a fun event. We were graced by the Crown, the Barony of Sentinels Keep and Gryphon’s Lair attending. The auction was very successful. Thanks to Her Grace Renee for organizing the auction, and to all who contributed the goods.

The April event for the Barony will be Crown Tournament, held at Stonegate (Pocatello). This is right in our backyard, and We hope all of Our populace will attend.

Uprising is coming up on us very quickly. We have an Uprising Facebook page (Uprising War) with information. Please plan to attend and enjoy a wonderful time.

In July We will again have the Baronial Archery Championships.
Date to be announced soon. It will be a un Baronial gathering.

You are all aware that the Barony has voted to add two members to the Baronial Financial Committee. Initially, we had four members who put in bid letters. Two of those withdrew their letters. That left HE Mistress Arial and Lord Aedh, who will become members of the Baronial Financial Committee, effective at the next Baronial Populace meeting.

We look forward to seeing each of you in the immediate future!
