Welcome to IDD
Greetings unto the Populace of the Barony I'le du Dragon Dormant, Good Gentles I must beg your pardon once again. As with any large group, logistics can sometimes cause issues in scheduling and the polling for the succession of the Baronial seats of your good Barony has seen more than its share. We have come yet again to another hurdle that has delayed the start date of the polling. The corporate office which sends out our mailing labels was closed for training just as we were set to request our labels and so we had to wait for their return. I am very sorry that these delays have caused distress. I will do everything in my power to ensure that the polling runs smoothly from this point on. I would like to reassure you that we now have everything that we need to proceed with this polling and that you should be receiving your ballots in the mail promptly. In Faithful Service, Lady Pypa Ravenild, Branch Polling Deputy, Tir Mara >>> Ballots will now need to be received by October 31rst. This time extension is in order to guarantee each member time to return their ballots. Borujin Acilaldai Seneschal IDD

The Barony of L'Ile du Dragon Dormant is the local chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism for the city of Montréal and the southern region of the Province of Québec.
L'Ile du Dragon Dormant was founded in 1984 as a shire and has been elevated to Barony in March 2005. It has since grown to include over ninety active and semi-active members. Typically, the barony hosts four to six events a year, and holds practices weekly, as well as workshops covering various activities.
Practice Fee Increase
To the general populace,
In our last Curia we voted to increase the general fee of practice by three dollars($3). In the renegotiation of our rental agreement for Wesley, the rent doubled from what it was before. While it is still quite cheap compared to any other location on the island, we(curia) felt it necessary to address the change in rent with a fee change. In three months(September), Curia will re-evaluate whether or not this amount is appropriate or if it needs to be adjusted.
So, as of July 1st 2014, the price to participate in any indoor martial practice will increase by 3$ to a total of 8$. We will be continuing the "One price for all practices" as we have done in the past. This does not include the price for equipment rental.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at email@example.com
In Service to Shared Dreams,
Lady Borujin Acilaldai
As Chatelaine of the Barony of l'Ile du Dragon Dormant, it is my great privilege to welcome you to our current middle ages. I am here to help you enjoy your SCA experience as much as possible by showing you around. I guess we should discuss what the SCA actually is... I believe the SCA is an opportunity to learn new skills, visit (somewhat) distant lands and meet new friends. Whether you're interested in learning medieval martial arts such as archery, fencing or armored fighting, or are more interested in arts, crafts and sciences such as tailoring, cooking, brewing, calligraphy, spinning, weaving, storytelling, leatherworking, dancing, singing, metalworking, and many more activities which were performed in the middle ages, I can help connect you with your interest. Scadians are more than happy to share their knowledge and help you acquire the skills you desire.
If you want any help getting started, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll get back to you shortly.
To be informed of all events, practices and everything happening at l'Île du Dragon Dormant, you can join our mailing list by visiting this link : http://lists.eastkingdom.org/mailman/listinfo/dragondormant

IDD Populace Favor
The IDD Populace favor was designed by a group of people from Dragon Dormant.
It was decided that the favor would have the colours of the IDD arms but be constructed in a way that allows people of all sewing abilities to make their own. The purpose of the favor is to allow members of our populace to show Baronial pride in displaying our colours, and to let others identify us as member of such a wonderful Barony.
Any wishing to display their love and pride in our Barony is welcome to wear the favor. We encourage you to wear your favor at both home events and ones from away. If you do not know someone else wearing the favor, introduce yourself as family. Please contact Her Excellency for favor kits.
