Greetings to the Populace of the Greatest Barony in the Knowne World!
As we enter the holiday season and the nights turn longer and colder, I find myself wishing for a warm hall, a roaring fire, a delicious feast shared with friends and chosen family, and the sound of bards singing and telling stories. With the suspension of in-person activities continuing through January and the health and safety of the populace of the utmost importance, it will be some time before we can gather again. We are working on some virtual activities, so keep an eye out for upcoming announcements.
Getting closer to the holiday season also means I am nearing the end of my tenure as Seneschal. My warrant is up in March, and I would like to have time to work with my successor. To that end, I am officially opening the position of Seneschal to applicants. If you are interested, please send a letter of intent, with relevant experience included, to myself at Seneschal@al-barran.outlands.org, Their Excellencies at firstname.lastname@example.org, and the Kingdom Seneschal at Seneschal@outlands.org. The deadline for letters of intent is December 2, 2020.
In Service to the Dream and Until We Meet Again,
Lady Phaidra Thebaia
Barony of al-Barran
At the end of the year, December 31, 2019, the Barony will have an opening for the Financial Committee.

If you would like to volunteer to hold a seat on the Financial Committee, send a letter of intent to myself (email@example.com), the Seneschal (firstname.lastname@example.org), and the Baron & Baroness (email@example.com). Please include your legal name, SCA name, membership number and expiration date, a phone number, a brief statement on why you would make a good financial committee member, and any related information you feel necessary.
