Tadcaster Members

Don Collin "the Rupert" Monroe of Tadcaster, OBT, OP
Co-Agitator, Co-Minister of Newfolk,
Co-Cruise Director
Iron William Roberts

FENCING in the SCA since:
June 5th, 2000. His first Event was "What's Your Point" in Iron Bog 5 days later. The addiction took hold then and there.
Or, ever since Ricardo and Mercedes shook him down for $12 at the Ren Fair fencing booth.

DESCRIPTION of Militia Duties:
Co-Agitator -- Many people are fuzzy on the actual job description of an "agitator", but it's really quite simple. Collin is most proud of this job. He's also quite good at it, as he agitates most of the people who get near him. The main point of this position is to pick fights for the Militia to engage in. Hopefully, they're ones they can also win. Also, the agitators serve to whip the group members into a frenzy for self-betterment, or just plain old berzerker rage.

Collin shares his Agitator duties with Duncan Kieran, although we know who does the real work.

Co-Minister of Newfolk -- Along with Alain Longship, Collin is very often the one greeting new people who come visit us at practice and getting them off the ground and playing, at least long enough to get then totally addicted. He also tells them of the Militia…

Somehow, it seems that Alain finds all the women to greet.

Co-Cruise Director -- Now that Lorenzo has joined our email list, Collin no longer has to forward him our secret correspondence...I mean, items of note, and therefore has more free time to devote to other pursuits. Like vacation tour planning to states that start with "V".

PIRATE NAME/other personas
Iron William Roberts (sometimes called "the Goblet"), was described thus by the test:

A pirate's life isn't easy; it takes a tough person. That's okay with you, though, since you are that person. Two things complete your pirate persona: style and swagger. Maybe a little too much swagger sometimes -- but who really cares? Arr!

Seemingly, the pirate personas of Collin and Frederick are brothers.

While not truly an alternate persona, there are those who prefer to call Collin by his, ahem, honorific of "the Rupert". It seems at some point in his life, he made the mistake of mentioning how he very much did not want to be named Rupert. Hence, that's we call him. See how easy that is?
