Feast Menu for Calontir Spring Crown 2019

Greeting, Friends!

The feast for Calontir Spring Crown, in honor of Calontir’s 35th birthday, is an early Anglo-Saxon one fit for those of us who remember the days when we were known as the wearers of dirty brown wool.

The dishes that do not say they are meat or dairy don’t contain any, and all veg-based dishes will be available without meat or dairy for those who wish – this unabashed carnivore believes in being vegan-friendly. Please let troll know when you register if you are meatless for the feast, and you’ll get a little bundle of herbs to set at your table to let the servers know.

Yours,

Elspeth Modlen ferch Daffydd

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.
