Baronial Activities

Business Meeting –

The monthly business meeting is open to the general populace, not just the baronial officers. If you want to know what is being planned in the barony, and/or you want to be involved in the planning process, or you want to propose something you’d like to see happen, this is the time and place to be. Newcomers are also welcome. Are you new to the barony or to the SCA? Come and meet the baronial officers, and other members of the populace. Get questions answered, get help getting started.

Business meeting is the third Monday of the month, unless otherwise stated. Check the calendar for the link to the video call for the business meeting. For any questions about the monthly business meeting, please contact the seneschal.
