Basic Armorial Heraldry

This is a reminder that the first lesson in our basic heraldry series will be at FCS on Friday! It will start at 7:30 and last 20-30 minutes. There will be no handout, so bring note-taking materials if you would like.

This installment will include historical background and uses of armorial heraldry, as well as the basics about tinctures and their use. We may begin to do simple blazon practice depending on time and inclination of attendees.

Esclarmonde de Porcairages intends to have a total of 3 lessons over the coming months.

Cupid Gets the Shaft (Wyewood Archery)

On Saturday, February 14th, from 10am to 1ish, will be our annual “Enhanced Practice” titled Cupid Gets the Shaft.
This will be at the practice range near IKEA, loaner gear will be available. As usual there is no site fee or medieval garb required. And also as usual there will also be no Royal Rounds or IKACs being shot.
What there will be though is:

  • Silliness
  • Novelty Shoots
  • Chocolate & bad candy
  • Prize Arrows.

Every year we introduce a couple of new shoots to the stand-bys and this year the Ladies have contributed:

  • “Awww you shouldn’t have! (No really, you shouldn’t have.)” presented by Lady Giulia Stanizi
  • “50 Shades of Cupid” by Lady Aetheria de Fleury

We are returning:

  • Heartbreaker
  • Conversationally Cupid
  • Speed Dating & of course
  • Cupid Gets the Shaft

What to Bring:

  • Bows and arrows
  • Friends/Family who just want to have a good time.
  • Snacks/ Bad candy/ Chocolate
  • Muck Boots (the range is muddy at best this time of year.)
  • Rain shade- just in case.
  • A Donation: express your appreciation of the fun you are having by feeding the Bubba Can!

Hope to see you all there!
Evrard de Valogne

PS: Last year the weather was most uncooperative so we hope to dodge the squalls and have some silly fun on the range. Feel free to petition your Diety of choice that it’s a wonderful rain free day!

Position open: Webster

My term as Webster is up! It was up in August and I didn’t notice! I would like to step down, and soon.

My ‘platform’ when I applied for the job was that I would redo the Wyewood website in such a way that anyone could be the webster. And now I have done that. You don’t need to know code to update the site anymore! Can you write emails, or comments on websites? Then you have all the technical skill you need to update the website.

I have offered to stay on as the background tech person to make sure the site stays up and running. It’s on my server, so I would have been doing that anyway. The webster just needs to update content as needed, manage the mailing list (not much to be done there), and keep an eye on things at the Facebook group.

Many of you would be great at this! Please apply for the job. Once again: NO CODING SKILL REQUIRED.
