[sca] Investiture - No flyer but a site

The contract for the site got signed last night and the information got Spiked. It probably will take a day or two to go up the website. The full flyer will hopefully turned in today. I've asked that Lina post it to the Storvik List and I'll post it when she does.

In the meantime we're on a hold pattern for the polling. The candidate names have been sent to the Royals for approval - apparently we need to hear back about that before Llyr can request labels for the polling. That doesn't make a lot of sense to me, after all there will be a polling even if we have to use different names, but that's what I'm told. I'm starting to get concerned about the timeline since California has a reputation of being slow getting labels out. My understanding is we will have two weeks to get the polling back to the Royals. Then they need time to review the results and make a decision. Last time the Royals wanted to talk to each of the Candidates, which makes sense but means planning to get to an event the Royals will be at. Mental Note: His Majesty is scheduled to be at Holiday Faire. Granted we have almost three months until the event but it would be really nice to have the decision sooner in January rather than later. Of course I'm just being impatient. I'm sure everything will go smoothly even if I don't worry about each individual step.

On the other hand you guys can expect me to post regular reminders about the polling once it goes out. Last time we only had about 20 responses. Considering there are more than 100 paid members in Storvik that's just shameful.
