Thor Nordwick suffered a stroke and we urge all Shire members to reach out to him as best they can to help him through this difficult time.
A&S was a blast per those that attended!
Our own Sophia Ivarsdottir claimed Novice Championship for her two paris of knitted, woolen socks, her Scottish shortbread, and a tunic and dress! Vivat to Sophia!
Further, our very own Mistress Caointairn is our new Kingdom Bardic Champion! Vivat to Caointairn!
Arwin has offered, as a Laurel interested in 'spreading the good word of the SCA' to visit our Shire. At first what she would like to do is a general Q&A about the SCA. Then she would take suggestions, as a Laurel, on further topics of interest. If you have something you would like to learn more about, please get in contact with her. She is available on Facebook, on the Aerie, and through the Kingdom website.
We now have two, certified Archery Marshalls! Both Mistress Caointairn and Sophia Ivarsdottir are now marshalls for archery! We are discussing putting together a permanent Archery Practice for the Shire. It will likly be once a month, but it will be held monthly and regularly. More information to come, soon!
Lachland, our current Rapier Marshall, is going to be moving out of the Shire within the month and, therefore, is going to be stepping down as Archery Marshall. Colgrim will be stepping up to take his place.
On May 18th Colgrim will be starting on the inventory of the Shire's personal property in the Shire Shed at M. Caointairn's home. If you have anything that belongs to the Shire, please contact him as soon as possible so that you can get those items to him on or before that date.
We are still accepting items of largesse for donation! If you have anything you can think of that you might like to donate, please contact Lady Penelope.

Shire Rummage Sale
On Saturday, June 1st the Shire will be hosting a Rummage Sale and we are asking everyone to pitch in items for the sale. The items do NOT need to be SCA related in any way. Anything you would like to donate to the sale is welcome. Proceeds from the sale will go toward the Kingdom Travel Fund. If you have items you would like to donate, you are welcome to drop them off at Thorkatla's home PRIOR to the sale.
The sale will be held at Caiointairn and Morgan's home (for address and direction information PLEASE go to the Shire Discussion Page). Any last-minute items need to be at Caointairn's home no later than the night before the sale. If possible, any items you do bring to Thorkatla's should be in boxes for easy transport, and if you have any thoughts to pricing on the items you wish to donate, please mark them.

Billings Renassaince Fair -- The Fair will be taking place the evening of July 26th, and from 9 am to 6 pm Saturday the 27th and Sunday the 28th. At this time there has been no permanent plan for the Shire to join in the event this year. However, should the Shire decide to make an appearance, Damon and Veronique will be the King and Queen of the Fair, which would prove to be quite fun! As always, the Shire as a whole DOES NOT sponsor or endorse this event. Anyone in the Shire is welcome to participate with or without Shire involvement.
The event will be held on September 21st. Mistress Caointiarn has things going with Lockwood Middle School as our site , Sofia is the Class Co-ordinator , a Potluck Co-ordinator is needed to help with finding recipes for people to make and organizing the meal at the event. We have three classes scheduled, already! They are Archery, Chainmail, and Knitting.
