EK Scheduled Web Support Maintenance w/e 26-27 December 2020

Greetings unto the Populace of the East!

Your hardworking webministry would like to announce an upcoming maintenance window. On the weekend of December 26th and 27th, we will be performing maintenance to the East Kingdom Server so it may continue to Serve the East.

During this maintenance period, Google based services such as email, mailing lists, Google Meet video meetings, and officer document storage will continue to be available. Services that run directly on East Kingdom systems will NOT BE AVAILABLE during this period.

These services include:

  • East Kingdom and East Kingdom Branch websites
  • Polling Lists
  • Member account management tools
  • East Kingdom Wiki

Changes made to any of these systems during the maintenance period may be lost.

The Kingdom Webministers are taking every step to minimize this interruption to service, and are currently preparing to conduct this maintenance with utmost care and safety.
For those interested in peeking under the covers, we will be changing out storage usage to better align with kingdom needs and allocated resources. We will also be upgrading the underlying server operating system and underlying web server software as needed.

In Service,

East Kingdom Webministry

Distant Shore Fighter Practices move location

MIC, Baron Perceval Gower is changing the location of fight practice from where it has been held in Victoria Park, Truro, NS (by the pool) to inside the park, by the Amphitheater. The new location will be used starting Wednesday 14 October 2020.

As it is an outdoor practice, Baroness Admiranda said, “It looks like there is more light over there so he can continue practices until it gets too cold.”

As always the Covid 19 Rules apply, please bring, and when not fighting, wear your mask, as well as only use your own personal water bottle. Spectators are welcome to wear garb, although it is not required.

Wednesday Rattan Practice Resume

Wednesday Rattan Practices in Distant Shore will resume this week after the TS Teddy cancelled last week’s practice. This week’s Marshal in Charge will be Syr Yesungge as Baron Perceval is not available. Same practice rules apply!

“What’s that you say? Fight practice? Okay, let’s meet in Victoria Park in Truro. Regular start time of 6 PM till we are all done!” ~ Syr Yesungge

Distant Shore Fighter Practices Restart

WHERE: Victoria Park, Truro, NS WHEN: Every Wednesday 6pm-dark

MIC: Baron Perceval Gower, OP

Distant Shore has restarted Fighter Practices, every Wednesday 6pm – until Dark, in Truro’s Victoria Park by the Amphitheater. Lots of space to sit and watch, but bring a chair or blanket to sit on. We will be asking everyone wear their masks when not fighting and please maintain social distancing as per NS Health regulations. There will be the standard forms such as waivers for non-members and we will be taking names for a Covid tracing record. Please remember to bring your blue membership card, and your fighter card.

Marshall In Charge is Baron Perceval Gower:

“There shall be no loaning or swapping gear and the new inspection protocol is in place I can show the marshals and fighters that are unfamiliar. no sharing of food or water, there will be a sign in sheet that the Baroness shall ask for your name and contact info for contact tracing and masks shall be worn if you do not have a helmet on your head. Its gonna be fun BUT if there is any reason you cannot or will not follow these rules then don’t come.”

Our Baroness Admiranda sees this as an excellent recruiting opportunity, and is encouraging anyone out of armour to wear garb

So come out and join the Canton of Distant Shore, bring your own water/Gatorade supply and be prepared to have fun!
