November 2023 Business Meeting

November 28th, 2023

Location: Evergreen branch of the Everett Public Library, 9512 Evergreen Way, Everett, WA 98204

Words from the Coronets Baron Geirleikr Veðrson:
Looking forward to Yule and Ursulmas

*Seneschal: HL Sabina di Zorzi

At the business meeting on Tuesday, we decided to pursue adding the Midhaven neighbors into our Barony since the Shire only has about a month left before their two years mark of being in abeyance. We have many folk who actively play in the Barony, but live in the Shire area and would like to make this officially their home!

If folk who currently reside in the following zip codes can e-mail me at with their SCA name, current zip code, and support for being added to Aquaterra, then I can gather the responses and submit them to Kingdom next month.

*Social Media: HL Katla Mani
I sent one message to the Reeds for a correction to Games Day. I also reached out to Giovanni because the social media gmail email that I use for emailing and receiving emails from the reeds was generating messages about storage being almost full and that emails would not be able to be sent from that account once it was full. He is looking into why updraft suddenly started uploading several files per day which was what was taking up all the storage space.
