Unto the mighty Populous of Stierbach do Her Excellency Karin and I, Baron Saphir, send warm greetings!

We hope everyone had a joyous and safe Holiday season! We hope you took some time to settle down with friends, the family, and loved ones. Shared a song, a story, or even a warm drink and a fire as we slowed down a bit to take in the year gone past! A beautiful time, from a wonderful Holiday Faire to a most excellent Atlantian 12th Night! One of Our favorite times of year!

So, now refreshed and relaxed We are excited to shake off the cold (not for a couple more weeks anyway!), warming up as the days continue to grow longer! Soon more outdoor practices and events will be upon us, and the Baronial flags, banners, and standards will be stiff from a spring breeze and not the winter’s frozen breath! Stierbach, with her Fighters,
Archers, Rapier, and Artisan communities will have fine tuned themselves, readying for anything! We look forward to seeing you this Spring as we travel the Barony and other events throughout the Kingdom of Atlantia.

We also wanted to let you know that there will be a ‘changing of the guards’ to happen. An overdue installation of new Baronial Champions at our Defending the Gate, March 31. We are reminding our current Champions to bring/wear their items of Office to be returned as We thank them for their service. We are also very excited to install a Youth Champion for the Barony!! Be on the look out for a new recipient of The Dreamer’s Cup as well!

And, a reminder to the Populace, We are always looking for Award Recommendations! Both Baronial & Kingdom level awards. Anyone can send in a recommendation. Go to the kingdom website http://www.atlantia.sca.org/ mouse over Awards, then click on award recommendations. Log in, this will be the same login that you use for the kingdom newsletter, university, etc. Once you have signed in, click on new recommendation and fill out the form.

If you don't feel comfortable sending in a recommendation to the Kingdom, it can be sent through Karin or me. Remember the only way the King and Queen know about the wonderful deserving people of our Barony is if we let them know.

One last note: Volunteer! Your Barony has a need for Deputies! If you have some free time and can possibly make one meeting a month, have a desire to help out, support your Officer’s (or even become one!), send an email to: This email address is being protected from spambots.
