    Letter from the Senseschal

    Good Gentles of Caer Mear, Greetings from the Seneschal:

    Summer has come to an end and the Winds of Autumn are blowing. They

    drive us into our homes and give notice of the coming winter. And so we

    prepare for feasts and fellowship.

    Soon approaches our annual gathering of Yule. Please join us on Sun-

    day, December 11th for this year’s celebration of family and friends. Lord

    Henricus has planned what will undoubtedly be an excellent afternoon

    and evening.

    This winter will also be a time for us to reflect on the direction our Barony

    will take in the coming years. Yes, we must again advise Their Majesties

    and Their Highnesses on whom we feel will best represent Them as

    Baronage of Caer Mear.

    Candidates have come forward and I have sought the advice of the

    Atlantian Royals. To ensure that your voice is heard, you should verify

    that the Society has your correct address and that your membership is

    up to date. You must be a paid member of the SCA in order to receive a

    polling letter per Kingdom Law.

    To this end, we have proposed to The Royals that our investiture be held

    at Ruby Joust VI. However, we are in need of an event steward for Ruby

    Joust. If you have thought about running the event or are planning to

    submit a bid, please let me know. Help will be provided to any who need

    help with the event proposal or what do to.

    Thank you all for your continued support of our great Barony. Have a safe

    and happy holiday season.

    Yours In Service,

    Lord Hjörr Guðmundson

    Seneschal, Barony of Caer Mear
