Greetings unto the erudite Kingdom of Æthelmearc from Mistress Alicia Langland, Chancellor of Æthelmearc Æcademy!

Good Gentles,

Count Andrew and Sir Finn demonstrating some fighting techniques

Having received no bids for Fall Æthelmearc AEcademy and War College from groups in the preferred host region, I am now accepting bids from any group in the Kingdom.

The preferred date for Fall 2017 Æthelmearc Æcademy and War College is November 11, 2017.

Æthelmearc Æcademy and War College is an easy event to host.  It draws a sizable number of attendees, which typically includes royalty.  The host group is responsible for providing the site and lunch for attendees as well as staff to run Troll.  The Æcademy staff will assist with the rest!

If you’ve been wanting Royalty to visit your area, this is a great opportunity to bring them to you.  If you have a lot of newcomers, this is a fabulous event to introduce them to the many facets of the SCA.

Bids must include a completed Æthelmearc Kingdom Event Bid Form, which can be found here: http://aethelmearc.org/calendar-2/event-planning-resources/

Please remember that sites should include space and facilities for both gentle and martial arts.

If your group is considering submitting a bid, I would appreciate a quick note to that effect, sent to this address:  ae.aecademy AT aethelmearc DOT org.

Bids are due May 15, 2017, and should be sent to this address:  Bid.fallaecademy@aethelmearc.org

Resources for would-be autocrats — including FAQs — can be found here:  http://www.aecademy.net/downloads.shtml.  If you have questions or need help with putting together a bid, please let me know;  I will be delighted to assist!

Yours, in Service,
