By The Light of A Northern Star....

Deadlines.
People flinch when they hear this word. But it is a word that we all have to learn to live with, both in, and outside of, The SCA.
I put out notice a week ahead of time, and remind people a day or two before. And yet, I get messages after publishing of "Why wasn't my Event Copy in there?" Or something similar.
You may notice that this is a little bit slimmer issue than usual (I even had room for a longer article!). This is because, of the seven events being held in Nov. and Dec. here in The North, I had event copy for three. And I know I am going to get a message, somewhere down the line
saying, "well if you had only told me....!"
Experienced autocrats will tell you that you don't advertise your event the month of the event you do it for two months previous if you can arrange it, and one month is the minimum! If you want people to come, that is.
So, for those who want to know what the directions are for the St. Giles Grand Ithra and Lionsdale's Bardic & Banquet this month, I hope you can find out who the autocrats are, and how to contact them, because event copy for them (as well as Seagirt's Yule Revel, which will be
happening before the next issue of this newsletter goes to press), never made it to my door.
Which means, it's unlikely that you will make it to their's....

From The Crown Principality Exchequer

Greetings from Mikhail Kurganovic, CP-North Exchequer.
First of all I would like to thank all who have gotten back to me so quickly with E-mail addresses and contact info after my recent Hard drive crash. For all others please have your branch Exchequer or seneschal contact me as soon as possible. Much of the efforts the collect current contact info has been lost.
Next, One of the criteria given to me for the Crown Principality of the North to proceed towards becoming a full principality is financial self sufficiency. In the future, hopefully, this
will be provided by principality events making money... For now it means Fundraising at the Branch and even household levels. As the exchequer and a member of the Principality fundraising subcommittee I would ask EACH branch to come up with fund raiser to support the CP-North. To this end I would like the thank the Shire of Dreaggate for there immediate and generous response!

In Service to the Dream (And the Pencil)

From the Crown Principality Rapier Marshal

My apologies to anyone who will get this message more than once. I wanted to reach as many people in the North as possible. I have been seeing a trend lately that I wish to address. Fighter
authorizations should not be sent to me. They should be forwarded to the Kingdom Lists mistress ( Laura Offley, #76 - 12110 - 75 A Avenue, Surrey, BC V3W 1M1).
If I receive an authorization I will send it back with a note to send it to Lists. Also, when a person is promoted to junior or senior marshal, I need to have the Marshal Promotion form filled out and sent to me for approval.
Remember, nothing is official until the proper paperwork has been filed (you'd think I worked for the government). For those people who do not have the forms, I have put them on a web site @
www.geocities.com/dunham.geo/forms.
I hope this is helpful.

From The Crown Principality A&S Minister

The Arts and Sciences are active as a result of the Regalia Committee stirring up interest in making our Prince and Princess look their best, Champions, Officers and others will all be wearing new regalia. Send me your name and mailing address if you want to do your Shires's Device for the Kneeling cushion or an Officer's badge.
I have also been organizing A&S Displays at the Shittimwood Ithra, featuring teachers; Crown council featuring Figher-Artisans; and Youth at Kingdom Arts & Sciences and perhaps July Coronation.
Think about other non competitive venues where artisans can show their stuff, and inspire others with their work. I have been told that many of the war band households do great stuff in their encampments. Why not have a "tea" and invite me and other A&S types to see your stuff ?
Shittimwood Ithra also had a Costumer's Guild Challenge, and we are looking for an event, maybe an Ithra to do more challenges in the spring. There were Embellisher's Guild challenges at various events as well, and we are always looking for events to plan such challenges.
Painters and Bookbinders Guild and the Scribes, have been busy preparing for the Known World Arts and Sciences Sympsium on the weekend of October 27 and 28, and the non SCA Scribal retreat
will be coming up on November 17 and 18 at Flaming Geyser Park. We will learn how to do a scroll from assignment to finished piece. The Northern Principality will be in need of scribes soon, so now is the time to prepare.
The Known World Arts and Sciences symposium was an amazing event, ask me in person and I will tell you all about classes, demo, merchants and all the amazing people I met from all over the
Known World.
Watch for Fighter Artisan's Display at Crown Council, and A&S Display at Baronial banquet. I am just beginning to receive this quarter's Arts and Sciences Reports, False isle is creating Favours for Archers, and St Giles did a demo at University of Victoria's clubs day and has a full roster of classes planned for the fall. I look forward to the reports of all the other Shires and groups as the week progresses.

Yours in Service
Aelana Cordovera,
Arts & Sciences Minister

From The Crown Principality Herald

This has been a relatively quiet month for me after the chaos of the previous several. I have an important announcement to make: First, there is a new, and very important article on the An Tir Heralds website: "How To Fill Out An Tir Submission Forms". It can be found at:
http://www.antir-heralds.com/Resources_for_Heralds/Submissions/
Please, please, please take the time to read this article if you are planning to submit your name or device. It is invaluable. As well, make sure to visit this page and read the other articles there, especially the one on "Documentation Standards".
The articles aren't long and can help clear up some of the questions that come up every so often. As well, when you are doing your photocopying and mailing of your submission packets, please send one my way so that I have a record of it in my files in case something happens. Any questions about your submissions can also come to me; I'll answer them to the best of my ability. My mailing address is:
Heather Rowe attn: Li Ban
72 Starling St.
Kitimat, BC V8C 1K5

I am also always available to help design and check devices and names should anyone wish. I'm not always right, but every little bit helps, and I might be able to catch something that was missed.
In service,

From The Crown Principality Chatelaine

I may be sounding like a broken bard, but reporting is still not satisfactory. There are too many branches that I have not heard from. I do not want to have to start tracking people down and getting annoying. Please, please make what reports are necessary. As a club or society - small "s" - or any other type of organized group, we need to follow our rules and report.
The branches I have heard from seen to be having a good time and prospering. This is good news for the region. There also seems to be a bit more travelling between branches which is something we should all try out for ourselves. Plan a trek, take friends, go on a road trip adventure with people you don't know all that well. I can guarantee that you will know each other better by the time you get home. (Travelling in packs can be a lot cheaper, too!)
We are all chatelaines in many ways, some of us are a little better at it than others, some of us have volunteered to do the paperwork.
Let's all work together, eh?
Yours in service,
Ekatarina Borisovna Kievskaia
Chatelaine for the Crown Principality of the North

From The Kingdom Minister of Lists

Acceptable forms of proof of membership are:

1) blue membership card

2) payment receipt (note issued from Milpitas indicating your blue card is on its way. May be a credit card receipt if that was the payment method used.)

3) current Crier label (which states membership expiry date)

4) Kingdom Membership Roster (your modern name and membership expiry date listed on the Kingdom Membership Roster issued from Milpitas. This roster is in the possession of the Kingdom Seneschal, and a new one is usually requested just prior to each of the four Crown events - 12th Night, May Crown, July Coronation, September Crown.)

Please keep your proof of membership handy at all times. Those who have the arduous task of checking memberships do not want to hear "I have it, honesty, it's just back in my car." These papers need to be seen as they are "the proof". ( - this goes for fighter cards too!)

More Scadian than Thou: Nostalgia vs. the New
Reprinted from The Bunny Tales, May AS XXXIV
Mistress Ariel de Courtenay

Happy New Year! The SCA was conceived thirty-four years ago this May Day. I find it rather mind-boggling how, in that short time, we have grown into a complex sub-culture with a complete fabric of social mores and values. I have often heard mourned the passing of the values of the "old days," and the difficulties in "assimilating newcomers" but I question the validity of these concerns. Instead of grasping at a past that may never have existed, I would rather celebrate the strength and richness of the community we have built.
Even to someone encountering the SCA for the first time, it is abundantly clear that there are a set of social expectations and possibilities distinctly different from other groups. Many new comers are overwhelmed with the feeling that they don't know the ropes and may be caught "doing something wrong." This sense of needing to fit in can only be generated by a group with clear and obvious structure. Our society may be a little intimidating at first, but in the big picture, it is this complex structure that makes the game so valuable. If there were no goals to achieve, no expectations to meet and surpass, no real, significant, lasting recognition and reward for the work we do, we would all quickly tire of play acting.
As I mentioned above, I have attended many meetings and heard many discussions on the topic of how to acculturate, or "assimilate" newcomers so as to retain the values of the old days. However, this same quandary can be turned on its head to say, "how can we old timers adjust to the diversity and new styles of playing brought by the broader spectrum of people our group is now attracting?" While I believe that it is our responsibility as hosts, as it were, to welcome all comers and to do our best to include everyone in the public and communal aspects of what we do, I think that this welcoming duty can too often become intrusive and stifling if those of us with a pedigree dating back some number of years see our purpose as making sure that others see the SCA the same way we do. Just because we have been here longer does not mean that our vision and goals for the SCA are necessarily any more valid than those of the folks just arriving with the magic still fresh.
And isn't this really what we mean when we pine for "the old days?" Isn't it more that we long for the image we had of the SCA before we got immersed in scut work and politics, in hauling period pavilions and feeding hungry kids? Perhaps all this drive to acculturate new folks so that we can maintain the values of the "good old days" is really a misplaced desire to take ourselves back to a time when the snapping of pennons made magic, and the mist curling on the early morning tourney field could have been a time portal. Perhaps it is not the SCA that has changed, but we ourselves that now see it differently--mundanely--and long for our days of innocence. As Mistress Scarlet of Shittimwoode likes to say, remember that every now will be someone else's "good old days."
For after all, at the rate we are growing, our society is newcomers--they are the majority. Many will want to integrate into the structures they see already existing, but many will want to create their own way to enjoy The Dream. We who make up the "old guard" must be welcoming and supportive of the "101 ways to play," for our own continued enjoyment of the game. I believe that it is totally valid for folks to choose other ways than ours-even if it means a few people doing the work so that many can enjoy events (This is a commonly expressed irritation on the part of long-timers). This is always the way it has been, and the way it will always be. (After all, we who organize should be organizing because we enjoy creating a wonderful time to be had by all, not because we think we can pay our dues and then have everyone else do a fair share-that will never pan out.)
Rather than trying to make everyone who joins conform to some ill-defined memory of what we once thought our group was in the idealized past, let us welcome the possibilities of what our diverse prosperity of new members can bring, and celebrate what we are becoming together.
