To the fighters of Calontir, come these Greeting from His Highness, Sir Duncan Bruce of Logan regarding the upcoming War College event.
Unfortunately due to modern commitments, We will be unable to attend War College this year. However, We strongly encourage everyone who is able to go. This is one of the few opportunities for the army to practice together as a unit, and it should be taken advantage of. Please attend, and push each other to gain new skills and hone existing ones. You all performed well at Gulf Wars, but We can always get better.
We look forward to seeing all of you at Lilies War, where hopefully more practice at committing acts of violence will be had.
— HRH Logan —
Sir Duncan Bruce of Logan and Mistress Ylva Jonsdottir are the new Prince and Princess of Calontir. Vivat!
Duke Finvarr de Taahe, a good friend of Calontir, has created a website listing his books on chivalry and where they can be purchased:
Finvarr is, modernly, an historian named Steve Muhlberger, and the website also includes other sections which reference his books and articles on the history of democracy, 5th C. Latin chronicles. and much more.

The Society Seneschal, A.J. Pongratz, has provided legal guidance for Youth Combat activities at Pennsic in light of recent changes in Pennsylvania law. The full text is quite long, and is posted in full at The East Kingdom Gazette http://eastkingdomgazette.org/2015/07/01/societys-guidelines-for-youth-combat-at-pennsic-and-changes-to-pa-laws/
However, the pertinent part of the statement is:
In reviewing the official website of the Pennsylvania Department of Health and Human Services and the recent statute with other officers and agents of the SCA, I have determined that this statute will not impact on Heavy Combat or Rapier Combat by minor children of the age of 16 or 17 nor youth activities.
Greetings Calontir. I bring additional news concerning the Deeds tourney at Lillies.
