Conducting: Zalkuubar

Richeza (MoAS): Not a lot going on for December. Try to get a hand-sewing class between now and Candlemas. When we did the kosode class there were questions about types of hand-sewing. Tryingto schedule around events and holidays. Most likely in Davis/Weber county libraries. After the holidays, I expect to be able to have more activities. Later January, into February. Will discuss on MoAS group.

Zalkuubar: Do we have a site? Finalizing; talking in financial committee. Pushing thru this week. Ascension Lutheran or UMA.

Michelle: hope to host needlework gatherings. So many projects.

Shirin and Rodrigo: What's going on with the Candlemas site? Kingdom Calendar

Michelle: Baronies are being reduced to 3 events, calendar being juggled. Quest date change for 2022; we chose June 25th. Always looking for officers and deputies. Barony always needs help; we need volunteers. After Solstice I will need help on A&S and organizing classes. Help is desperately needed and appreciated.

Richeza: Willing and able to help. Do you have classes planned?

Michelle: Sashiko embroidery; games corner; Satake Naname will teach Pitch Pot and other games;

Zal: Food restrictions and Tea Ceremony

Michelle: Are we in the "go"? The fundraiser is purchase a box to follow along with the tea ceremony. Event Stewards will demonstrate. If you buy the box, you have materials for 4 people to follow along with the demonstration. Next week I will have a final answer for Kingdom if we can do a follow-along tea ceremony. Not a lunch; should not be a problem.

Richeza: Is the food restriction an SCA, state or local thing?

Michelle: Because of COVID restrictions, we cannot provide prepared food. It must be prepackaged food and drinks.
