February Provincial Commons

Our next provincial commons is this coming Friday, February 21st, at the New Rochelle Public library. We will begin gathering at 7pm, meeting will commence at 8pm, with socializing and sachet making afterwards! All are welcome and encouraged to attend.

The library is easily reached via public transit — take the Metro North New Haven line to the New Rochelle station and walk 2 blocks from the station to the library. (Exit the south end of the platform, walk east along Memorial Highway past the library green to the plaza entrance to the library.) There is a small parking lot on the east side of the library, for the convenience of those of us who will be driving to the meeting.

As usual, you may telecommute to the meeting via Google Meet. You can videoconference using the Google Meet app or your web browser, or audioconference using a plain old telephone.

For the sachet making workshop, we will have linen scraps, needles & thread, scissors, and sachet contents: lavender, cedar, cloves and spearmint. I also have flax seeds, if anyone wants to make eye pillows. You may take your sachet home with you, or donate it to the province’s largesse offering to Queen Margarita. The largesse sachets will be gifted to scent armor bags(!!), garb trunks, and the like.

If you are allergic to any of the above herbs, and you wish to attend the meeting, please let me know! I will not bring any problematic materials. You are welcome to bring other sachet contents, additional fabric scraps and/or your own personal needlework supplies, as you prefer.

Agenda (subject to additions):

Provincial Archery Championship

Hear ye, populace of the Crown Province of Østgarðr!

As we come ever closer to the changing of season so must we, your provincial champions, also make way for change. As your archery champion, I hereby announce this year’s tournament to decide the next provincial champion.

This year we will be hosting the provincial archery championship at The Feast of John Barleycorn. The theme will be “An Archer’s Coming of Age”. With the aid of Lord Friderich Grimme and Lord Francisco de Braga, we anticipate this year’s tournament to be a great one.

I implore all Archers of the populace, regardless of skill, to participate in this year’s tournament. For those who are not of the province we also encourage you to participate so that we may recognize the best Archer from far off lands.

Yours in service, Catelin Straquhin, Crown Province of Østgarðr Archery Champion
