Practice struggled with numbers this year, but thanks to watchful eye of Master Caleb and the steady dedication of Lady Thalia the range stayed active all season long. We shared many good laughs and saw the making of a new Champion (Lady Thalia). Thank you to Lord Akayuma for running our 2018 thrown weapons champs tourney and many thanks to THL Maeve Ni Siurtain for the use of her home, yard, and storage shed. Thanks to everyone who visited us when time allowed, it was good to see new and old and faces alike.
As winter sets in I ask everyone to keep thrown weapons in mind for next year. The Barony has a proud legacy in the thrown weapons community and I encourage everyone to come out and give it a try. I imagine as soon as the sun returns and the ground is dry you will find Caleb, Thalia, and myself out on the range again. Come join us!

The Barony of the Rhydderich Hael and the Canton of Beau Fleuve
Each year one of the honors handed out during champs is the Queen Ann Trophy. The award was created in Honor of Kent Weed and was originally bestowed to a person in recognition of their excellence upon the field in both conduct and martial skill. Over the years the nature of the award has changed. Now the award is bestowed to people who have suffered hardship or loss, but despite that, remain strong and continue on both with life and in support of the SCA. Some may feel the award no longer represents its original intention, but I must disagree. Not all challenges are met at the end of a sword and conduct and courtesy are not limited to a list field. Recently the Barony and Canton has suffered great loss, and while it was hard for many, it did not break our resolve. During this time Her Excellency and I watched as people stepped forward, picked up the pieces, and continued to work to make the Barony and Canton strong. This was not restricted to Peers, veterans, or officers. Help came from the newest of members,veterans, and from young and old alike. This year instead of awarding the Queen Ann to a single person Her Excellency and I have decided to recognize The Barony of the Rhydderich Hael and the Canton of Beau Fleuve as a whole. We are so proud of each and everyone of you. Thank you. You share this honor with each other.

In 1999 The Barony was awarded a Keystone for service to the Kingdom. Each year the Baron and Baroness are tasked to pick a new member of the populace to carry the Baronial Keystone. Traditionally the person does not have a Keystone of their own, but exemplifies the qualities of a member of the order. The medallion was once contained in small wooden box and hung on a simple black cord. Our outgoing Baronial Keystone holder Lady Artemisia da Manarola graced us with a new bag to carry they Keystone as well as a upgrade to the medallion cord. She also made a nice video documenting the process. Thank you for this wonderful addition to the Baronial Regalia!
