SUMMER’S END

Midge Marsh has come and gone, the event went smashingly. I have a list of people to thank. This Barony would literally not function without these people. Artemisia is lucky to have you all. Rodrigo and Shirin, Ai and Tarou, Kojirou and Sayoko, Owen and Malkin, Domnall, Michelle and Andrew, Jaquelinne and Sven, Stephan and Ursula. You folks keep us alive and kicking. I also want to thank all of the instructors who traveled to help those that attended learn and grow. To all of the attendees of the event, thank you. You are why we do it. I give a very special thank you, to Baroness Merin, Their Royal Hignesses, and Their Majesties. Each of you touches our hearts with your devotion and dedication to us, the people of the Kingdom.

Welcome to our New Champion! Kamei Kojirou Yoshinaga has sworn his oath and shall serve as the Armored Champion of the Barony. Kojirou –san was also the recipient of the Order of the Gryphon and Hammer! Your seneschal shall serve as baronial rapier champion.

The order of precedence is up on the baronial website. Please take a moment to look it over and let me know if there are any changes to be made. seneschal@baronyofgryphonslair.org. This is a great chance to stop by the Baronial website and see the great work Kojirou has done. That said we have recovered the original domain name gryphonslair.org. The old link will redirect so don’t worry.

Lastly, next year’s events are in need of bids. 12th Night needs to be in as soon as possible. November is the opening date for reservations for Weber parks.
I hope everyone has a safe and sane end of the summer and I look forward to seeing you all in the near future.

Yours in service, to our Barony and our Dream,
Baron (Yeah that feels weird) Sionainn
