News from the Barony

From the Baronesses:

Greetings to the most wondrous Barony. We want to start out with a thank you to everyone who helped out with the soup kitchen at BAM as well as Salsa Saturday in camp.
Yule was a great event, which couldn’t have happened without Hywel and crew. We also would like to send a huge thank you to everyone who helped with setup and takedown as it really helped to get the decorating and clean-up done quickly. Congratulations to our newest champions for bard and A&S, master Don Brian O’huillium and Her Excellency Mistress Cristyana Lambrecht. Congratulations also to Honorable Lady Ceara inghean mhic an Ghabhann as the newest member of the Order of the Sodality of the Sentinels of the Stargate, Honorable Lady Caitlilin inghean Ronain ui Cheallaigh on her Star of Merit, and His Excellency Master Robert on his Augmentation of Arms.
Tournament of Champions was a very exciting event. Lord Ozar Svensson (Chivalric), Master Don Corvin Fenarro (Rapier)m and Her Excellency Mistress Cristyana Lambrecht (Arts & Sciences) represented the Barony well. Everyone did an amazing job and we were proud to have them represent us at our first kingdom level championship!
We are looking forward to the coming year and all the activities that will be upcoming. There are a lot of events going on throughout the kingdom in the next two months, so there are plenty of opportunities to participate in the SCA.
One event that will be coming up is Winter Roundtable. This is a free event that is held in mundane clothing.. It is a time for all the officers in the kingdom (or those interested in holding an office) to come and learn about the different offices and take any required training. If you have any questions on Roundtable, please ask us or Lady Talia (the Stargate Seneschal).
Gulf Wars is also coming up and we will be camping with the Loch and Seawinds again this year. When registering for G, please select the Kingdom of Ansteorra and then put in that you are camping with Coastal. HE Brenna will be coordinating land for the Coastal group and will be asking for tent information closer to Gulf Wars. There is also a facebook event page setup to assist with GW encampment planning (camping, food, etc). The facebook event is called Coastal Goes to GW. If you are interested in camping with Stargate, please join the facebook event,
