Reeve Master Sir Baron Bain de Saint Florian
- We have money - but is not aware of how much.
- Has received money from Baroness's Birthday Par.
- Made it clear that he will only chase up moneys that have been taken out of the account.
Lochac Levy issue was raised and discussed.
- Agreed that we would pay $750 as of 2006-07 financial year as it is the right thing to do and the group is financially stable enough to afford it. Follow on effect is that the budgeting of the Lochac Levy will rise to $1.50 per person.
- Action: Bain to pay $750 for financial year 2006-07.
- Bain also to research arrears for previous years and pay whatever is outstanding.
- Amounts of $50 and $260 are still outstanding to Lorcan of River Haven. Paperwork is yet to be completed.
- Lorcan tried to pass the buck onto Bain and jokingly said that he'd been "let down, again".
- Bain denied all knowlege.
Baron and Baroness Giles and Maud
- The Baronial banners appear to be missing. If you have these, could you please return them to the Baron and Baroness.
- All equipment owned by the Barony of St Florian should be stored with the Quarter Master.
- Regalia to be stored with the Baron and Baroness
- Concern raised by Bain - Believed that the banners should be stored with Sabine due to concern of damage caused by poor storage. (This is nothing to reflect the current QM). It would be a shame if the items were damaged and made worthless as many hours have been spent on these.
- Discussion included that the Barony owns the equipment so the Barony is responsible for all of it. Just like with Kingdom regalia - after the item is completed, it is handed over to the Kingdom. Many hours have been spent on other things. Accessibility is an issue - particularly when it is so far away from the QM's and the Graceville Hall. (Bain suggested that he store them as an alternative which was disagreed with as it's another location.) Equipment is not being used because we don't have access to it - so therefore it's worthless unless it is accessible.
Bain suggested that this should be reviewed after current QM's tenure.
- Decision to go with the policy. Giles is to request equipment off Sabine and William.
- Gabriel threw in a concept of a Regalia Keeper. The soul purpose was to look after banners..
- Henri raised that eric corners are being damaged due to storage at Football club and suggested that he could store them under his house. (Group Disagreed)
- Gabriel raised that there's a nasty set of thrones taking up the majority of the room. Motions have been passed several times at meetings for it to be given away or destroyed but nothing has happened. Raoul offered to cut it up into formstools. Group loudly agreed! If the thrones are not removed by next meeting, Bain has promised to burn them.
Baroness's Par d'Armes Lord Henri de Montferrat
- Money has been handed over. Henri has asked Constanzia to help him with the paperwork. They will arrange this before the next meeting.
- Baron Event reporting must occur. Would like to see clean slate so if you have an outstanding report, please follow this up as soon as possible.
- Celebration Par, Great Northern War 2007) Master Baron Gabriel de Beaumont
- Will be submitting paperwork for the Celebration Par and Feast. He is still waiting on dates from HRH's as it will be St Florian's Royal Visit.
- Will be putting together a team for Great Northern War. He is running the initial meeting for the team in two weeks. He is planning to blow about $200 on advertising such as Pegasus.
Lord Andreas de Leon
- The First Aid Kit must be made available at events.
- At the Baronial he dropped a table on his foot which caused some significant damage to the toenail. All that was available was some clingwrap and some papertowel from the kitchen.
- Barony has two first aid kits. One should be stored with the QM QN will be responsible for restocking with current items and run like a mini bar. Stewards must ensure that this is available at events. First aid kit needs to be gotten off Acacia de Navarre and moved to the QM's storage.
Duena Baronessa Constanzia Moralez y de Zamora (and on behalf of Her Majesty, Asa Beiskalda)
- During the Baronial, it was noted that the majority of the equipment that the Barony had was up to 10 years old and needed replacing. Constanzia and Asa came up with a list:
- Banner Poles
- Portable Holes
- Amendments to be made to Principality banners!!!

- Baroness suggested that equipment that was allocated to be removed from storage could be used for other means like Hospitaller.
- Bain suggested that we should sell it to make a profit.
- Jessica suggested that it should be for the betterment of the Barony.
- Constanzia asked if she could go and start negotiating with some small businesses to see what sort of discounts she could get - eg Candles you can get much cheaper if you buy 100.
- Violente is to arrange a Workshop to clean out the gear and work out what other items we may need.
- Constanzia to get quotes for the list to bring back to the next meeting.
- Bain asked that prior to members of the Barony purchasing anything, that they should first ask him to see what he can arrange before exchanging any money. (NB - Nothing should be purchased without prior approval anyway!)
- Bain is to provide a padlock to Violente for the storage shed.
