The MacColin Bros. Occasional Mercantile & Sutlery
The Season has started. We had a successful Hogmanay and an enjoyable evening that was not dampened by the weather. Noah was named new come and Hadrian quiet man and Michelle made Gentle in her own right. Ian Roberts, David Nelson, and Tigh Sidnam are our new Lieutenants. Wappenshaws are in our future to get ready for the biggest annual event in our schedule as we individually and collectively get our goods ready for Faire.
The Queen Mary Scottish Festival, one of our oldest events, with Malcom serving as bushway, Proved successful in spite of the weather, mud, cold, and the arrangement of their resources. Which has required an additional work. Don't let your goods mildew. We need a Wappenshaw to clean up and dry out the tents and rugs in the trailer and do some de-rusting and maintainence. our goods in the trailer at Nelson's on Saturday 2/23/2019.
Please spread the word to your regular clan correspondents you phone or email. Facebook is useful for the casual social contact, however it is an insecure adjunct which will not have non-public information, especially what I have to pass on to you from the company. The Bulliten Board is the official place for working information. www.facebook.com/ClanMacColin is for the general public and promoting our image.
If you have any questions please email me, ColinChief@hotmail.com and CC Lonny, chief of staff, especially for anything that has a deadline.
Yours aye, Steven
Don't like the background? Mouse over the Chief's picture at the top to change it.
I am currently holding a bunch of lost and found from Hogmanay, including some items the Chief appreciates. Let me know about missing items to claim them. Turn in Lost & Found to Odo so there is one place to look.
The Chief found we had a lot of lost and found years ago, and did not want the blatent appearance of names on everything while portraying and teaching about a preliterate society. As a result he ordered a registry of personal marks. This has allowed the return of goods and portraying of another part of the society.
The Chief has told everyone they need a Registered Personal Mark to retrieve their goods. Read the Marks article, as well as the rest of the Basic Guide, which has information you need. Look at the Current Marks Registry as well as the older Marks Registry PDF to design your unique personal mark, and submit it (100pixels x 100pixels with name and persona name) by email to Odo for approval and inclusion in the Registry, or get a reply why there may be a problem (like someone else's?). Approved marks can then be put on your app for an additional reference. If you learn the marks, you can return goods directly to the owner. Found goods go to Odo, so they can be retrieved, under orders of the Chief. Odo reviews proposed marks to make sure they are unique and will work. Marked goods can be retrieved for the fee. Unclaimed goods will go to the MacColin Bros. Mercantile. And do remember, Unmarked goods are the Chief's goods. Mark everything!
Keep up to date and check the Board. Let your Household Head know how you are doing, and make any changes promptly for the run. After your first year you must choose a household which is done by requesting such from a Grad Flaith Household Head.
Please give feedback about MacColin.com, and email me notice of any problems on the web site. What I don't see or know about doesn't get fixed.
The MacColin Basic Guide has information you are required to know as well as much of the basic information aggregated in the past 30+ years.
ID Project needs a clear, small
150x150 pixel picture of each face, kids included just like apps, that
will read when printed by a b&w printer so we have a reference. It
helps in learning 16th & 21st century names and returning goods.
Send approriate pictures with 16th & 21st century names directly to
Odo. You can also get marks
approved, registered, and published. That also means
you can pick a picture you like, instead of me making do with what I
can, including clowning.
You know how to do an address update, and this way we are a current as possible.
We have links to most of our resources, Living History and general.
Outline of Links of the
sets of links will help with where to look and link to them.
In the Outline use the Find function (most browsers use ctl-F) and look for a related term, like "lyric" which will also find lyrics, and once you are in the area, follow the outline tree up. Some links are old (these are the most useful sites I have found in the past years, over 4000 links, and some die every month) or slow, or are limited traffic. Try surfing these links, there is more stuff related to our interests in these than you can read in a year. And if you find another good one, let me know, and it will be added for the rest of us to use.
If You would like something added to the site, tell
