Baronial Letters of Intent
Letters of intent have been submitted for the next Baronage of Ponte Alto.
The following candidates have submitted letters, which can be viewed by clicking their names:
Polling will take place in October, though at this time we are unsure if this will
be an electronic polling or a paper polling. Further information on the polling will be provided by
the Senescahl when it is available. As always only dues paid members will receive the pollings, so
please make sure your memberships are up to date. However, anyone wishing to express an opinion on
the candidates may do so in writing to Their Highnesses Christoph and Adelhait.
Change in Time for Sunday Heavy Weapons Practice
To better serve the desires of our populace, the Baronial Marshalate has decided
to change the hours for the Sunday heavy weapons practice at Tysons Pimmit Park.
Starting next Sunday, June 28th, practice will begin at 10 AM and continue until 2 PM. This change
in hours will remain in effect at least through Labor Day Weekend.
Our regular business meetings are one the fourth Sunday of
every month, at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, 7426 Idylwood Rd, Falls Church, VA 22043.
Business Meeting Directions.
To All Heavy Weapons Fighters of Ponte Alto and Its Environs!
A reminder to those to attend marshal activities and practice
at Fairfax County Public Schools: Fairfax County Schools do not allow any form
of real weapons, even work knives, Swiss Army knives, box cutters, etc, to be
brought onto school property. Lemon Road Elementary has in the past officially
informed the Barony that any infraction of this rule will result in the perrnanent
loss of our practice site there. Therefore, please be respectful of this rule so
that we may continue having our practices at this school. Thank you!
Ponte Alto is continually seeking submissions from our local artisans for our
online gallery of A&S projects.
If you are interested in displaying your work, whether finished or in-progress,
send your photographs and descriptions to the MOAS.
