I have learned that my current listed deputy, Lady Matilda, will not actually be able to take over my position when I step down without relinquishing her position as baronial exchequer. Therefore we will need a new exchequer deputy, one who can take over in a year’s time when my warrant expires. It would also be of greater advantage to the group to have an exchequer who lives in closer physical proximity to the rest of the canton.
It was noted that the reason that Siobhan ended up being exchequer was because she was it (so to speak) there really isn’t anyone who can step up as deputy exchequer at this time

From the exchequer – Stone Dog:
Pre-registration – as of 3/23, we have 7 gate (4 member, 3 non-member), 7 lunch, and 7 feast pre-reg.
Gate box – I will need a gate box for site. I have a couple baskets that can be used for site/feast/lunch tokens if we are using them. Will be provided.
Gate Change – It has been suggested by Regional to have $250 in gate seed change in $5 and $1 bills. Due to my housing/parking situation, I would feel much safer is someone closer to the event site were the one to get the seed money if possible. I usually have to park a decent way away from my apartment, a couple miles, and I don’t feel safe with that much canton money walking/biking from my car to my apartment or back. Because of how early the event is on Saturday and the drive time, I would not be able to get it Saturday morning at my local branch. – Event Steward (Etienne) will co-ordinate with Siobhan and Susan to get a signed check which he will use to provide for the seed money.
Stone Dog 2019 – Look at combining with other groups or moving event date.
