Seneschal: Nothing


  • National Night Out is August 6th on Tuesday at the Fairground again.  Public at 5pm, so plan to start setting up around 4 pm.  We bring our own tables (shire tables are at the dacha).
  • She finally remembers to bring the receipt for the Hampton Demo book that we approved earlier this year.

MOY: Nothing new

Exchequer: The accounts are the same.

Fighter Marshal: position vacant

Archery Marshal: Nothing new. 

Chronicler: Taking submissions yesterday – article and photos, officer reports.

Herald: We have re-submissions sent in for William (being decided) and Stasi (in commentary at Laurel).

Web Minister:

  • Our web hosting and domain name both expire in September.  We have the options of:
  • moving hosting to the kingdom server ($0) vs
  • renewing current hosting service (~$120/yr)
  • If we move, we then have the option of:
  • switching to heraldshill.calontir.org as our domain name ($0)
  • keeping heraldshill.org (~$15-20/yr)
  • We vote to:  move to the kingdom server, keep heraldshill.org domain name
  • Finally, I’ve been fired along with all other group web ministers who have served more than 2 years (BOD fears people getting political and territorial).  Moving to the kingdom server means that site can be converted, somehow, to a WordPress site so next shire web minister won’t need to know HTML code.
