As usual, a Crown Event is pending, and the populace of the Kingdom find a topic to start strongly debating. As this topic concerns us all, I would recommend that anyone interested in this possible revision of Corpora regarding Crown Tournaments check out the following web-

This is a topic that needs to be commented on (like any decision of The BOD with regard to Corpora, Marshalling, etc.). Please get involved and comment either for or against the change.
Now that "official" business is out of the way, I hope that the holiday season was one of true joy for you and that arguments at the family dinner table were of a minor variety. And that you are not **too** tired or turkey meals.
By the time you receive this issue, we'll either be looking at the immanent Coronation of our new King and Queen or remembering this anniversary 12th Night as yet another milestone in our journey through the Current Middle Ages.
Now there's a term we don't here much any more; "The Current Middle Ages". It used to be that you couldn't open a newsletter or read a web-page that didn't have that term somewhere inside it. It seems to be one of those traditions that has gone by the way-side.
You know what they say about traditions in An Tir: Once is original, twice is custom and three times is age-old tradition of our fore-fathers.
But traditions change, either by building upon their foundations or by neglect. Traditions are what give us our sense of history, of our knowledge of things past and a way of doing things that has, generally, worked well. But this does not mean that Traditions must stay forever unmutable and unchanging. For what served us well in AS XVI is not necessarily either relevant or effective/efficient in AS XXXVI . At one point in time, not so very long ago, printed copies of branch newsletters were the only way of getting information about events and happenings, and for an event to be "official" had to have been printed there. But now, in our mundane electronic age, we have eMail and the World- Wide Web and NewsGroups that get the information out faster than any method previously known to mankind.
But there is a "tradition" of the printed newsletter, and so the rules say that for events to be official, event copy for them must show up in the branch/Principality/Kingdom
issues. But many events never show up there. Because the event organizers (not necessarily the Autocrat) either just send it to the local email list or post it to their Web-Page. And even then, they will often wait until the last minute say two weeks before the event to announce that it is happening.
And people wonder why events seem to get smaller numbers showing up to them, right?
Tradition tells us that the sooner you get the information out, the better your event will be attended. Even big events like Daffodil or Baroness' Birthday or even Egil's down Three Mountains' way. Tradition also says that if the event is published in a newsletter, it is official and all the mundane requirements are met and covered. And the Kingdom will take official notice of Awards Baronial and up that were presented.
This is a good tradition, and one that needs to be cared for. And while the tradition has changed so that there are newsletters that are sent out via eMail or presented on Web-Pages, the traditions that govern the use, care and well-being of newsletters hasn't really changed. Although
there are some that try mightily to ignore that.
Support your local newsletter it's a Tradition that you'll find is really worthwhile. And one that only gets better as you follow it....

From The Crown Principality Chatelaine

I hope things are going well throughout the North. We still have a very poor reporting record. Yes, I can be slow in replying when my everyday life gets busy, however I hope I have not failed anyone out there.
It seems I may be leaving this post soon. My Kingdom superior is resigning and I will be "moving up" as it were. I hereby ask for volunteers to take over at the regional/Crown Principality level. You will probably need email access as well as a few hours a month for replying to reports and reporting to Kingdom. You will also get a lot of emails out-of-the-blue from the directed email address on the Kingdom website and others.
Anyone interested is asked to email me at wl835@victoria.tc.ca with a clear subject line and send me a cover letter and resume.
Hoping everyone had a good winter holiday with the best of wishes for the year ahead,

Ekatarina Borisovna Kievskaia,
Chatelaine for the Crown Principality of the North

From The Fundraising Committee Chair

This letter comes to you in light of our upcoming celebrations of the choosing and coronation of our Prince and Princess. I write to tell of the exciting opportunities that lie before us during this time of preparation and what you can do to help in the effort to be ready for that day when we finally choose those that will sit on the thrones.
There is much to do to prepare for this day. We will build thrones, craft coronets, and sew regalia for the champions. We have representatives writing the laws that will govern us right now. We have other creating the ceremonies. Many people are already busy to make possible the future of this fine principality.
There are still many opportunities to participate in the preparations. As individuals, households and as groups, I would like to invite you to create ways of raising the funds to make possible these preparations. Following is a page of ideas and the information you will need to get started.
In conclusion I throw down the gauntlet and challenge all branches, all households, and all individuals to become active, to create fun ways to raise money, to participate in them and to be generous.

Yours in service to the dream,
HL Thora Golvik

Because I Can...
...A Viking Christmas Carol

'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the Hall
Not a creature was stirring, not warrior nor thrall.
And I in my armour, my greaves and my helm
Was drunker than anyone else in the Realm.

I staggered upstairs and fell into bed
While four quarts of mead were ablaze in my head.
Then up from below came the sounds of a brawl
So I grabbed up my axe and ran down to the Hall.

I missed the last step and crashed down in a heap
Thinking, "Why can't those low-lifes downstairs go to sleep!"
When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But two brawny strangers, wielding mallet and spear.

I said to myself, "We'll soon have them beat!"
Then I noticed ten warriors laid out at their feet.
I gave out a yell and leapt into the fray...
I'll always regret my poor choice of that day.

For the one laid his hammer to the side of my nose
And up, up, up to the rafters I rose.
Then came a lone frightened voice from the floor,
"Those are no mortal warriors -- that's Odin and Thor!"

Then they looked at each other and they said, "Battle's done.
Now they know who we are, it no longer is fun."
Then Thor raised his hammer, and his elbow he bent,
And with a loud crash, through the ceiling they went.

I crawled through the Hall and flung open the door,
Not really sure that I'd seen them before.
The snow bathed in starlight, the moon like a glede,
I saw them ride off on an eight-legged steed.

And I heard them exclaim, 'ere they flew out of sight,
