As the BOD Secretary, I have been tasked with informing the populace that Amtgard International has presented us with the new Kingdom Contract. This contract was in discussion by the COM for approximately the last year, and includes clarifications and modifications requested by the various Monarchs. Approval of this contract is on the agenda for the next BOD meeting (1PM May 7, at MS).
Once this contract is signed, there will need to be changes made both to the Park Sponsorship Agreement (formerly Park Contract), and to the Kingdom Corpora (possibly including the creation of a standard Subgroup Corpora) due to the nature of the new Kingdom Contract.
In addition, while researching the proper terminology to utilize in the new Subgroup Corpora, I discovered precise terminology in the TX State Business Codes that would be helpful to more closely mirror in our Kingdom Corpora. The BOD will be discussing the best way to implement these changes, and will make a series of recommendations to appear on the (hopefully) next Althing.Link to the new Kingdom Contract.
The V8 mindset is not about "what is the minimum I can get away with doing" but rather "how can we all use these rules fairly so the game runs smoothly and we all have a good time."
