In Memoriam: The Passing of Master Charles of Westermark

Word comes to us this day of the passing of Master Charles of Westermark

Charles was a stalwart of the Fourth Company of Calontir, aka “The Soup Kitchen”, for many years. He was a true servant of Calontir, a brother Pelican. A kind and gentle man who brought love and light to the world. He will be sorely missed.

Duchess Catalina de Arazuri remembers: “He was always kind and genuinely caring. I worked with him for countless wars. He greeted me with a smile every morning. I am very very sorry for your loss, and our loss.”

Honorable Lady Vǫlu-Ingibiǫrg says:  “Charles of Westermark has long been to me an exemplar of Pelican-hood. Even with his age, he was on site early six months ago to help with Lilies setup, he and Margaret also providing lunch to others who’d come to help.

But it wasn’t only the fact of his long service to Calontir; what made Charles an example to me was his manner. At the time of his vigil for Pelican, I had just learned “Song of the Slow Hound,” Mikal the Ram’s Norse-style poem-story about service. I went into the vigil tent and offered to share it. Charles agreed, and I of course forgot the words halfway through, stumbling to a halt in confused embarrassment. “That’s alright,” he encouraged, “take your time.” After a few frantic seconds longer, I remembered the next stanza and resumed. When I finished, he game me one of his joyful smiles, the kind that let you know it was okay if you flubbed the words or your delivery was rushed, because somehow, this wonderful person understood you were trying to express your admiration.

I will never forget his gentle smiles.”

The Great Hobby Horse Roundup

Gleaned from Facebook:

Attached below are the instructions/template for the sock horses participants will be constructing for the Page School Equestrian Tourney at Gulf Wars in 2020.

The plan is to have the heads completed *Ahead Of Time* and *Off Site*. We are going for realistic looking heads so stuff the socks with polyfill accordingly. Colors of the socks utilized should be black, brown, grey, or white. We want to keep them similar to keep down the possible hurt feelings between kids.

Attached below are the instructions for the hobby horse heads. Final assembly will occur on site in the Equestrian area.

Also below is a finished horse head for reference.

I will provide the striped, dried saplings, foam padding, and sinew for final assembly on site.

In Memoriam: The Passing of Countess Morgana of Raglan

Sad news comes this week of the passing of Countess Morgana of Raglan.

Morgana loved this Kingdom and served as its 17th Queen. She also served as Baroness of Lonely Tower, among many other services she did for Calontir.

I remember Morgana as a vibrant, enthusiastic, encouraging and kind woman. Her presence was a constant of my earlier SCA career, and always a welcome one. She will be sorely missed.

Master Mathurin

Calontir has suffered another devastating loss. My friend Countess Morgana of Raglan has departed this world. My heart is heavy. I served the Kingdom as Waterbearing Coordinator when she was Queen. She was one of those who encouraged me when I was first learning how to make beads. I will miss this lady.

Master Mellitus

Morgana loved cats.  She would pick up and try to save any stray cat or kitten that came her way.  We were friends for over 30 years and had lots talks about cats, fiber and just about any thing else.  Moving back to Mag Mor I was looking forward to spending time with her.  I will miss her, she will be missed many.

From Their Royal Highnesses: Seeking Applications for Additional Advocates

As many of you are aware, several new changes have been made to Calon Law, and we will be seeking to fill the positions of two new Advocates. We strongly encourage our entire populace to make themselves familiar with these changes at

The condensed information regarding the Advocate office is as follows:
-The Advocate office is now expanded to three officers, rather than one.
-Advocates will serve three year terms, with one officer rotating out each year.
-The Advocate office is now tasked with helping to investigate and arbitrate disputes between any members of the populace, not just in issues dealing with officers.

We are happy to hear from ALL members of the populace who would petition us for these positions. Because we wish them to be representative of the full variety of Calontir, all petitions will be seriously considered.

If you are interested in one of these positions, please email us at with a few sentences about why you think this office is important and how you can help serve the kingdom.

We hope to conduct interviews at Toys for Tots and Kris Kinder, but will also look at video conferencing and local meeting options for those who cannot make either event.
