News from the Barony

From the Baron and Baroness:

Greetings Awesome Stargate and friends:

Well, it is that time again. Spring Event time!! We have Coastal grand Baronial on April 15th and Squires, Cadets, Arcarius, and EQ on May 6th. And what is common with events...AWARDS.

Please recommend your friends and neighbors for awards. If you have observed excellent art or outstanding service from someone, recomend them for an award. And it is easy to do...

Just go to our Google Docs site and fill out the form. You will need to know the persons full SCA name and what event(s) they will be attending. Get your friends and family involved and do a group recommendation. There is a place at the end of the form to list everyones name who support the recommendation.

You can help make someone's day by helping the Crown to recognize them for all their hard work. Remember to copy their group's B&B (if in a barony) so they can help with award recommend.

Thanks to all of you!!
Baron Robert and Baroness Cristyana
Barony of Stargate
