Serve it Forth:  Food as service in the SCA.  Baron Mael Eoin,Companion of the order of the Pelican.  He has served in many areas within the SCA.
One of the joys at many of our events is sharing food and drink with those around us.  While striving for
authenticity is admirable, we're going to look at differences between food as A&S and food as service, highlight some of the common hurdles we
encounter as cooks and share tips and tricks for successful dayboards, feasts and other shared meals.  Hopefully we can lower the bar some for newer
cooks, share tips experienced and inexperienced cooks alike can use and talk through challenges we've experienced.

The Royal Household:  What does it mean to serve? Mistress Ellesbeth Donofrey
I have had the honor of serving multiple Royal Households in a range of capacities from Queen’s Guard to Chief of Staff.  A reign has many moving
parts, which require volunteers to help our Royalty bring the magic to events and the SCA at large.  Being part of a Royal household is work, think of
it as being a roadie on tour.  So, when does the work really begin? How is a Royal Household created and staffed? What happens behind the curtain?
Join me as we take an in depth look at what a Royal household is and isn’t.  We’ll have open time for questions.


De-mystifying Kingdom Offices:  Mistress Medhbh inghean ui Cheallaigh.  Join the East Kingdom Seneschal along with other greater Kingdom officers to
