Announcement – From the Lilies War Master Scheduler

From Mistress Elasait:


Hello! I am the Lilies War master scheduler.

Except for RUSH classes and things directly to do with the Known World Historic Combat Studies Symposium, everything that appears on the war schedule goes through me.

  • Got a tourney you want to sponsor? Contact me!
  • Got a party you want to throw? Contact me!
  • Got a nifty idea for OAFish fun? Contact the OAFocrats first to get it cleared, and then contact me to get it on the schedule.

I can be reached via email at scheduler@lilieswar.org. While people are welcome to contact me via Facebook in order to ask questions or check if a particular day, time, or venue is available, it will need to come through my email in order to actually end up on the schedule. That gives me a reliable record of everything to check on.

I know lots of cool stuff is going to happen at Lilies, and my job is to make sure it’s on the schedule so people know about it, and to try and help people avoid conflicts like, oh, a Fyrd tourney up against a Fyrd meeting.   So, let me know what cool stuff you want me to schedule!

Please feel free to distribute this on local Facebook groups, etc.

Come, bring us your stories!

Calontir Storycorps is collecting the recollections of the populace at Chieftains and Crown Tourney this Spring! We would like to hear and record SCA stories (or at least involving SCA people): stories you were there for personally, stories that were told to you, and events/happenings you think pivotal to our history. We can record your story day of, or you can arrange a phone-call or to send us your own audio file. Why? We want to fill in the story of the kingdom, get points of view from our elder members especially, and ultimately provide a source for future Calontiri to use in creating performances and written histories in the period style. Please find/contact me (Elynor) at the event to sign up for an interview!

Legal stuff: In future we may seek to post the actual recordings or transcripts online so that they may be easily accessible to the populace.To that end each participant will be asked to sign a Society media release form, to give permission for use (and which kinds of use: audio, transcript) at the time of the recording.

YIS,
