Domain renewal due August 15th - $15.99/yr - have been doing 2 year renewals. Presumably cheaper if longer term. We vote to renew at whatever term looks the most economical since we have to have it anyway.

Upcoming Events:

St. Augustine's Fair 2016: "It's all about the food"
  • August 19-21, contract and deposit already done (William given the copy).
  • Event Steward - William, he's looking for a co-autocrat, he's getting the Equestrian Insurance set up
  • Troll and Silent Auction to be run by... Anna?
  • Feast tokens to be beaded rings, likely fancier version for feast tokens.
  • Feast Steward - Gida, every course a different country. Amy and Mary Rose helpers.

  • Archery - Gobban MIC, Juliana thrown weapons, William doing children's shoot at noon
  • Marzipan Subtleties competition sponsored by Juliana. "The Food of my People" sponsored by Sofya.
  • Kaie requests new stands for the Saracen Heads. We voted at the last meeting to authorize supplies for William makes some up.
  • Chronicler will beg and plead to get a flyer into the Mews.
  • We're not going to get a dumpster this year, so that will save some expense.
  • William is calling to set up port-a-potties. Jutte has the number.
  • Gobban is getting bales (put them in the caged fighting arena)
  • Zacharia Lochrie will Fighter MIC as long as we make sure we save two seats for feast.

  • Esther has confirmed that she'll do Health and Welfare
  • Will ask Izzy if she can do a minimal schedule of Youth Activities. Gwynhwyvar willing to assist.
  • Construction has begun at the Fairgrounds on the new event center in the middle of our campground. Will have to see if they want to increase our rental rate, or exclude us from using that building and reserve the right to rent it to someone else or other annoying issues. William will give the deposit for next year, with the remainder of this years payment to stake our claim.

Fiber Symposium:
  • November 12th. Lunch only. There is a Facebook page for the event now.
  • Need to consider that there will not be a dedicated lunch hour, so we want to make sure the menu is easily portable.
  • Stasi will be our Point of Contact (code for, Inn Steward).
  • Stasi passes around photos of the kitchen facilities - very nice.
  • Runzas (Juliana with a "runza assembly party" at some point)

  • Jutte in charge of bread bowls - little cup-sized balls.

  • Seasonal fruit
  • Potluck Desert: gingerbread, shrewsberry cakes, animal crackers with frosting, etc. Vincent requests cookies, bars and chocolate.
  • Beverage: water, coffee, Vincent's root beer, hot cider (with penzies mulling spice)
  • Ziplock bags for leftovers.
