I am accepting:
What I’m looking for:
- Physical Stuff – Anything wooden, fabric, metal or thick glass! Examples: Old shields, esp things with your arms/badge! early garb projects, early or current pieces of work you would like to display. Consider doing a ‘Before and after” that captures your improvement! Also accepted are PHOTOCOPIES of photos or scrolls, etc. No original documents, please. Nothing larger than a piece of paper. I’ll be able to display these in an 8.5 X 11 inch binder with plastic sleeves. Get it to me at COUNCIL on APRIL 12, MAY 10, JUNE 14th.
- Digital stuff to go into the Dropbox – Digital PHOTOS of events, artwork, people- esp BEFORE and AFTERS and ANNUAL Sequences– capture different years of Fighter practice or Guard, your kid growing up, you hair going gray, your encampment improving, your embroidery getting way better!
- Text files and pdfs– with quotes & quips! Poems you’ve written? Headlines from the best Gyldenholt newsletter even? I’m looking for a few lines that I can include with the photos. I will have a story prompt that I’ll put out separately for longer things…
- Scanned up images of your SCROLLS!! Old newsletters, covers of TI, anything. SCANNED PHOTOS.
- Need an app for that? Sigbiorn suggests Photoscan by Google. It eliminates glare and is free and easy to use. If you can’t figure it out/don’t have the right tools, then bring them to council and we’ll help you out! APRIL 12, MAY 10.
- Video clips– not sure if i can make these work, but let’s try! Siggy has offered up an old laptop from work and I think I can get it to run a montage of photos and videos.
Things I am not accepting for this project:
Lady Emmeline has taken charge of the Privy Volunteers this year and would like you to sign up for any available shift using the tool below. (note this will take you to a website outside of sca-gyldenholt.org)
Welcome to Gyldenholt’s new site! Inside you are sure to find all sorts of new features such as the brand new calendar! Please come in and have a look around! The navigation menu at the top has all of our pages layed out for easy use.
Under the guilds tab you will find Baronial groups such as the Guardians of the Golden Grove, Newcomers and Sunday Solar! Under the A&S Guilds you can find information on Pewters and Upper Crust among others. Finally in Martial Arts you can find information about getting started in any of our combat oriented groups. Check out our new Awards and Galleries pages as well.
If you notice a page lacking in information and would like to contribute please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org I’d love to hear from you!
Yours in Service to the Dream,
THLord Sigbiorn Sigmundarson
It always takes me a while to compose my words after an event, and even still, I feel that I am never able to convey everything I want to. “Thank you” does not express the gratitude, excitement, pride, honor, and awe that I experienced. I do not think that there is a word in English that conveys all that I want to.
I am grateful for the populace that volunteers their time to make an event happen. I am excited to see all of the wonderful people who come to celebrate with us. I am proud of all of those whose work, skill, and comportment are celebrated with awards, and honored by those who chose to vigil at our anniversary. And I am in awe at the skill and grace that are shown through the martial arts, the arts entries, and the gifts of largesse.
Thank you to those of you who were able to make it to our anniversary and celebrate our first year with us as Baron and Baroness. And thank you to our populace who has entrusted us with the honor of being your Baron and Baroness. We hope that we are holding up to your expectations.
