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.

New Monthly Rattan Fighter Practice

Recently, through the suggestion, and assist, of m’lord Balen Malinovski, we have been able to obtain permission to use a local school gymnasium to hold month Fighter Practices. Our first practice will be held Sunday 16 February 2020 from 1pm – 4pm

The gymnasium at the school in Great Village is a very large space. There is plenty of room, as well as tables available, so that you could bring your projects to work on. We hope that you will come out share what you are making!

New Look

The Canton of Distant Shore is changing the way we reach our populace. Social media is making finger-tip information a must and regular updates a necessity.

To this end we offer you the Fire Beacon  – Distant Shore’s SCA website – with permanent information links to officer contact information, events, practices, and other activities as well as a place to share our ideas.

Forward Progress as we Step into the Past.
