To the Guild of Brewers in the Kingdom of Lochac,
Greeting from Rurik farserkr; clerk of the guild.
Well it has been a very big and very busy year for all of us and it only seems like yesterday I was calling for business for our AGM. Given how close festival is it is now time to call for business. If you have any thing that you feel should be brought to the attention of the Guild please raise it on the Email List so we can discuss it.
So far the there are only two pieces of business for the up coming meeting, the election of Guild Officers and the proposed ranking system.
If you are interested in contributing to the guild in an administrative way please put yourself forward. It is not hard, is a lot of fun and a great way to meet people. As they say join the guild, see the world, meet interesting people and have a drink with them.
I would also draw your attention to the draft (draught) guild ranking system. This is has been worked on through out the year by Mistress Rohesia Le Sarjent (mainly her) and myself. We hope that it reflects the prevailing attitude of the guild. Please take the time to read it and comment on it, even if it is to say “I agree with this.” It would be good to have every thing in place to implement this from mid winter onwards. I would take the time to point out hear that the guilds that have a strong & well thought out ranking system are overwhelmingly represented in the Order of the Laurel.
This will be brought to this year AGM as a carry over piece of business from the last.
I remain yours in service
Clerk of the Guild
Sveinn inn kyrri Grimsson has come up with these gorgeous pewter tasting cups featuring the Guild badge inside and the Lochac badge on the handle.
They are about 7cm diameter, 2cm depth and weight around 100gms. Great to wear on your belt as a sign of guild membership and a good size for sampling. We tried them out against a stainless steel goblet and found no noticeable tainting, only variations due to temperature and air exposure.
Sveinn is taking orders with an eye to a production run available at Festival. The cost will be $35 AU or $37 NZ, with $10 deposit requested if you wish to order one. Please contact Sveinn (Steve Worthington) via the guild mailing list or the Facebook page to express interest.
Monday, 20th January and 1pm. Lunch time in the Cultus Faunus encampment (the one with the “stone” gate next to the war field.) See you there!
The board of SCA Australia has updated their alcohol policy, the guild can be an influence on the drinking culture of the Kingdom and we should be a positive one. All members of the guild should take a moment to read over this policy and familiarise itself it. The board did take the time to consult with us on this & has taken onboard some suggestions. It is up to us to maintain our standards so the fun police don’t have any ammunition to fire at us.
I will also add this link to the resources section so it can be found.
