Shire Meeting – Nov.11,2022 in Utica

Shire of Hunter’s Home Meeting Minutes

November 11, 2022, 7:00 pm

Exchequer Re-Election

With the Shire of Stormsport merging into the Shire of Hunter’s home, a reelection of the exchequer was held.  Both existing exchequers were nominated for the office.  Rory Buhler declined the nomination. Char Smith accepted the nomination.  It was asked three times for additional nominations.  With no other nominations and without contest, Char Smith was elected to the position of exchequer by process of acclimation.

Corsi-Rosenthal Boxes

A motion was made to purchase the material to create four Corsi-Rosenthal Boxes at an estimated cost of  $100 per box.

Aerostar 20x20x1 MERV 13 Furnace Air Filter, 4 Pack 

Lasko 20″ 3-Speed Box Fan, Model B20308, 

It is known that Æthelmearc has been granted a variance by the Society Seneschal in where as of December 1, 2022 through March 1, 2023, masks will *still* be required inside at all events, practices, gatherings, meetings, etc., during that time, if the CDC County Transmission map shows that Covid Transmission is either High or Substantial. 

It is the Shire’s hope that the creation and operation of Corsi-Rosenthal Boxes will replace the mask mandate for Shire operations.  It is understood that these boxes have not been approved at the Kingdom level yet and specifications for Cubic Feet/Box ratios have not been established.  However, the presence and operation of the boxes will be helpful anyway. 

The motion was made, seconded and approved to reimburse for materials up to $400.

Shire Meeting – June 3, 2022, 7pm

0 0
Read Time:31 Second

The Shire Meetings are the first Friday of each month. We can take care of business early (both in-person and online) and then start our weekend relaxations. The most important part of the Shire is us. So if you are coming in-person, the Borderwatch will take care of hospitality after the meeting. The workshop is here, so it would be a good time to work on armor after the meeting. 

The June Shire meeting will focus on planning for the summer activities between now and Pennsic. The meeting will be at 1898 Grant Street, Utica, PA 16362 and start at 7pm.
