At Sobey's. In attendance, all told: six adults and six kids, although the weather caused some delays.

Maeve worked on Almaric's liripipe hood to go over his fencing mask while Freydis tried to get her new trim pinned to her apron. Valonia and Freydis discussed Norse and Anglo-Saxon women's clothes, as Valonia is thinking of new garb. Freydis was also able to deliver Olivia's new trim to Ulrich, holding down the fort in his lady's absence. It was ordered from Calontir Trim (in Links under "Useful Retailers" online), and was very attractive and much admired by all. Decent prices, too, although sadly in US dollars, not Canadian.

Discussed were Stronghold names, marshalling requirements in the East Kingdom, and the feast which will be held at the end of Spring Break.

Almaric has reserved a table in the Greenwood Mall on Saturday, February 13th, from noon 'til 5; he asks for people to come in garb to help show what we're about to the mundane populace.

Greg made it out with half an hour to spare; but unfortunately the kids were rambunctious enough that we were packing things in half an hour early to put them to bed. The one disadvantage Sobey's has over meeting at someone's house is the lack of separate rooms to shoo the children into. However, Almaric reports that we will not be able to have very many more meetings there, as after March, most of our Wednesday evening time slots have already been taken.

However, we may be seeing if we can meet there on a different day for dance.

The next meeting will be at someone's house; location T.B.A.
