Citadel of the Southern Pass - Seneschal: Aoife Ruadh inghean Ragnaill
Between the increased A&S classes, scroll preparation, and setting up coordinator lists for event stewards, November was a month of planning for the Citadel. The martial disciplines, archery, and arts and sciences are flourishing and participation is strong weekly. I believe this will be evidenced at the upcoming Twelfth Night Event on January 6, 2018.

There is a lot of A&S occurring in Citadel. A new series of classes, inspired by Baron Tariq, relates to his tunic/stamping and recreation of extant pieces. A&S meets weekly, along with the Arcus Calamus Scribal Guild A&S activities.
Heavy and Light Fighting and Archery are meeting regularly and war practices are being scheduled to occur at upcoming events.

It has been a busy month. We have been looking for a new site for our weekly A&S meetings. We have been having regular A&S classes, and fighter practices. We had a potluck at 1 fighter practice which was fairly well attended and we were able to have drumming. We had one last court dance practice this month taught by Mistress Katriona. We really would like to THANK her for coming all this way to teach us on a week night.
