Seneschal – We plan for the demo and the reopening of the SCA. Things seem to be going back to normal, slowly but surely.
Exchequer – Reporting to report.
Westminster – Business as usual, working on the archive. Thwarted a phishing attempt.
Chatelaine – Heavy Practice has started and it’s been attracting new people interested. Working on getting the newsletter out.
Minister of Arts and Sciences – Nothing new to report. Did share a simple viking tunic and submitted their A&S officer’s report.
Twitch Demo – It’s coming along. June 16th! We planned placement of the site and Ragnarr has water and some sealed snacks for everyone.
Handouts for Practice – We need to look into localized handouts for practices. Randve, Ablrecht, and Arnora will look into it .
Feast of the Fireflies – Pennsic replacement potluck run by Randve. She had a planning meeting on the 9th. It went well and will have more details at Ostgardr commons.
Arnora brought up that Ostgardr is looking into getting trim with the populace badge for the group. We might consider getting some for the canton.
To our amazing canton and beyond,
To celebrate the month of making, this month we are presenting a chance to showcase the creativity of the SCA! You are encouraged to seek out myths, legends, and lore for your inspiration and build a project that not only fits the theme but also makes you proud to show off.
What counts as mythic is expansive and generous: this can be Arthurian legends or the semi-mythic alligators in our city sewers or the shared knowledge of Nyan Cat. If it has cultural relevance, it is fair game!
So let’s GET BUSY! Make a scroll, choreograph your pell work, do whatever relevant SCA activity that references your myth or legend of choice. You can submit as many activities or objects d’art you want – all will be featured on the Broken Bridge website!
Take a chance and get mythic! Guidelines and Timelines are provided below, and our Webminister is available to field any questions you may have at: email@example.com
Yours in Service,
Broken Bridge Webminister
