This Friday at the FCS we will have an opportunity for you to chat with and ask any questions you may have of the baronial candidates. Although we had a number of candidates nominated only one couple was able to accept their nomination; Lady Alessandra and Lord Evrard. Below is the letter of intent that was submitted as well as both of their SCA resumes.
Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions.
*Letter of Intent*
Unto Their Royal Majesties Eirik and Driffina, Their Royal Highnesses Kjartan and Sha’ya, Their Excellencies Robert and Gabrielle, and the wonderful populace of the Barony of Wyewood, do we, Lord Evrard de Valogne and Lady Alessandra da Montefeltro send our warmest and most humble greetings. This letter shall serve as our honest intention to put ourselves forward for consideration as candidates to serve as Baron and Baroness of Wyewood.
To that end, we acknowledge and can accept the commitment of three years of service to the Barony of Wyewood, of which we have seen the responsibilities as laid out in Corpora and in the baronial customary. If chosen, we intend to make ourselves available to the populace through all means be that in person, phone, email or social media.
Our vision for the future of the barony is to foster growth. Growth not only through creating a welcoming environment for any newcomers but also by encouraging all of our populace to explore the many opportunities available within our barony, the kingdom, and Society. To improve quality and increase enjoyment of everyone’s’ participation.
Service and expanding knowledge is very dear to both of us. We are both currently officers of this barony and marshals. We attend practices and project days. In addition, teaching and taking courses in new skills has deepened our appreciation for The Dream and has kept us both participating for over 20 years. It would be our goal to inspire others to find their path, wherever it may lead.
We wish to serve as Baron and Baroness out of our love for the Barony – our family. The populace has gained notice for its dedicated service; hospitality; open welcome of visitors, old friends, and new members; and their support of each other and the barony. Guiding gently, maintaining the Baronial tradition of fun and welcome, we will continue to foster the feeling of community by building upon the efforts of our founding coronets.
Wyewood is full of amazing individuals and the Baron and Baroness are nothing without them. As such, we intend to support our officers and populace to the utmost of our abilities. We will also rely on them to help make our vision a reality. As representatives of the Crown, we will be open to our populace; listening to them, their thoughts, their feelings, and relaying those opinions to the Crown as well as communicating the wishes of the Crown to our Populace.
We remain in service,
