I have volunteered to coordinate a Silent Auction to be held at the Spring Coronation of Ragnvaldr and Arabella on May 2, 2015. This is to be a fundraiser for the State Dinner at Pennsic, which will be hosted this year by the Midrealm.


I am hoping that you can assist me by reaching out to the artisans in your populace for donations. We would like this to be not the usual silent auction and have these items be relevant to the SCA timeframe and of high quality. To raise the needed funds, we will need unique items that the populace will really want to bid on.


Such items could include: Jewelry, inkle woven or card woven trim, pottery, fabric, clothing, accessories, books, weapons, or armor.


We could also suggest the donation of time and services – be it an hour long class on how to fight long sword, or a dinner for 4 hosted at Pennsic, or a fitting for clothing with an experienced seamstress, to name a few ideas.


Would you please pass the word to your populace and let me know who would be willing to participate? We are hoping to obtain between 50 and 100 items for the auction and this should give enough notice for people to create something.


If you do have willing participants, please provide me with their mundane name/SCA name, contact info (cell phone or email), and the item they will donate along with a suggested minimum bid. In the event an item does not meet the minimum, have the donator indicate if they would like the item returned or put into largesse for their Majesties.


I am planning on attending Grand Tournament of the Unicornon April 18th and could pick up donations at that event if the participant is unable to attend Coronation.


I hope to hear from you soon!


Yours in Service,


Baroness Antonia of Andelcrag

Good Day Good Gentles! I come to you as a very lucky person- we were not affected by the tornados. Our home and family are safe. However there are a great many who have lost everything. 
We are a group know for our charity and goodwill- our Chivalry. And with that I come to you. 
If anyone has the ability to bring extra supplies - food, water, dog food, blankets, clothes- etc. To Rites of Spring, I will happily collect them and drop them off Sunday morning to the Red Cross headquarters that has set up in the area.

I shall be sitting near the list field, and for those who do not know me I shall be wearing a purple and green viking dress with a fun hat:-) I shall be near House Fox Rose.

Again I thank you for your time reading this and hope we can once again show our Chivalry to strangers.

In service,
Cezara cel Asemanare
