Replacement Regalia Bid Proposals

From Their Royal Majesties:

We, the Kingdom, are in need of artisans to place their bid proposals for replacing the Kingdom regalia that was recently stolen. We are opening the bids up to anyone who would like to submit one.

You can see all of the items that need to be replaced and submit your proposals via the form here:

http://www.calontir.org/regaliabid.php

Each item or set of items will need a separate bid proposal, and even one requires a “team bid proposal”.

Bids will close at Midnight on May 11, 2019, the day of St. George and the Dragon.

Thank you, Calontir!

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.
