Gathered from Facebook, from Nakos:

 


 

Six Lilies t-shirts have been turned into wall art, and will be up for auction at the Tailors Tent table.  The t-shirts are from Lilies 19-23 & 25.

Has you favorite shirt fallen apart? Or did you miss getting one from that year? Here is a chance to get one that will hang on your wall and never need washed!

Funds from the Tailors Tent auction will go to purchasing materials to make garb for TRMs during Lilies.

Greetings to All,

The Armorial has been update to reflect the items in this LOAR.

In Service,

Gunnar Thorisson

CALONTIR
* Æþelwyn æt Grenawice. Name.
Submitted as Æþelwynne æt Grenawic, the given name Æþelwynne is an inflected form, not the nominative (base) form required for a given name. Therefore, we have changed it to Æþelwyn.

The place name Grenawic is required by Old English grammar to be in the dative case. Therefore, we have changed it to Grenawice to register this name.

* Aldred Ketcham. Badge. (Fieldless) Issuant from a tower vert, in chief a demi-sword inverted argent.

* Alienor Walcott. Device. Argent fretty azure, a linden leaf and on a chief vert an arrow argent.
Please advise the submitter to draw the arrow with a thicker shaft.

* Angelus Vulpis. Name and device. Sable, a winged fox sejant affronty and on a chief argent a rose azure between two roses gules.
Nice name from 13th century Pisa!

* Asgeirr Hrafnhauss. Name and device. Argent, a sinister clenched gauntlet bendwise aversant sustaining a double-bitted axe bendwise sinister azure, on a chief sable a skull argent.

* Hildibrandr Tjúguskegg. Name and device. Per pale vert and sable, two dragons addorsed, a chief Or.

* Holta-Fj{o,}rleif. Name.

* Hugo Smith. Name and device. Sable, a sea-stag argent attired, collared and chained, maintaining a mallet Or.
This exact name is found in English parish records from 1588 in the FamilySearch Historical Records, making this an excellent 16th century English name!

* Justinian of Tanet. Name.
Justinian is the name of a 6th century Welsh saint.
* Lucrezia Contarini. Device. Per pale argent and sable, two dogs sejant erect respectant forepaws conjoined counterchanged, on a chief azure three leaves bendwise sinister inverted Or.

* Morgan Stone. Name and device. Sable, a chevron purpure fimbriated surmounted by a griffin, in dexter chief a cinquefoil argent.
Morgan was documented as a Welsh name in the Letter of Intent. It is also a late period English given name dated to 1576 and 1597 in the FamilySearch Historical Records. Therefore, this name can be considered wholly English.

Nice 16th century English or Anglo-Welsh name!

There is a step from period practice for the use of a charge overall with a fimbriated ordinary.

*Morwenna de Merbotyl. Name. Morwenna is the name of a Cornish saint, venerated through much of our period.

*Thaddeus Ellenbach. Device. Lozengy azure and argent, a lion contourny maintaining a sword Or, a bordure sable

Office of the Chirugeonate Closing

From the SCA Announcements email list:


The decision has been made to close the Office of the Chirurgeonate as of August 10th, 2015. The board and corporate officers want to extend their gratitude for ALL who have served our organization in this capacity in the past. To those who have provided feedback, questions, and worked to explore options for scopes of the office that would allow our organization to retain the office and maintain insurance coverage for the officers and our organization, many thanks as well.

To clarify some of the concerns that have been raised during the many discussions of this change, the board and corporate officers want to provide the following information:

The Society Seneschal has been directed to remove references to the Chirurgeonate from the Record Retention Policy. Existing records should be retained for 2 years for adults, 21 years for minors, then shredded to ensure any Personally Identifying Information is destroyed.

Local groups should sort records into Adult, Minor and Destroy categories and ship (paid for by the local group) records to the corporate office. The corporate office will retain records and handle the shredding.

Each Kingdom has thirty business days to transport these records to the corporate office.

Event Coordinators/Stewards/Autocrats are still responsible for arranging for EMS on site if that is required by municipal/county/state requirements. This most often will apply to large events projecting an attendance greater than the threshold set by the applicable modern agency. It is recommended to include information regarding distance from site to medical care in event announcements, particularly for camping events.

The marshallate will still be responsible for reporting injuries on the field. Seneschals will still be responsible for reporting injuries (particularly requiring transport) as currently directed.

Tangible assets owned by SCA branches that are specific to the Office of the Chirurgeon may be retained or donated or sold, in accordance with applicable financial policies.

Over the counter medications may not be purchased by SCA branches to distribute or make available to event attendees.

The badge of the fleam will remain available for those individual volunteers (not affiliated with the SCA, Inc. and its Kingdoms and local groups) willing to provide basic first aid.
Should additional questions or concerns regarding this change arise, please direct them to the SCA President, at president@sca.org

Our thanks again, to all the volunteers that have helped keep our organization going for 50 years!

President, SCA, Inc

Bows for Calontir Falcons Fundraiser

Republished from the Midrealm Gazette:


How the “Bows for Calontir Falcon Fund” came about.

In March while returning from Gulf Wars, the Brook’s family trailer transporting their precious Calontir birds was lost in a vehicle fire. I saw that Calontir was doing a “Silent Auction” at an event for them, but felt something more needed to be done.

I am from Gleann Abhann. We are celebrating this year our 10th year as a kingdom. In 2005 Hurricane Katrina struck, and basically all our regalia and scrolls were lost. The Knowne World came to our aid with replacements for everything to get us back on our feet. We as a kingdom proclaimed we would not forget the good that was done to us and when others were in need we would return their good in kind. Like many of my fellow scadians, a promise was given.

There is a Baronial War at Samhain in October coming up between the Baronies of Grey Niche and Three Rivers at the Castrum/Roman Reenacting site in Lafe, AR. I am the owner’s site manager for handling business with the SCA. The site has a period tavern that was not going to be used. I contacted William Hopper the autocrat and Jim Hannold the Grey Niche Seneschal for permission to run a fundraiser which the barony endorsed.

My son wanted to use a period cart and sell lemonade at the war for tips to help and get other kids to help. Then everything changed.

Jim Bryant, a truck driver who is also a master bowmaker and will be teaching classes at another event “Athenaeum” at the Castrum on the weekend of May 8th contacted me. We had met at Gulf Wars and talked a little, but we have not known each other long. Jim wanted to help. He wanted to do a raffle/fundraiser for one of his beautiful bows. Then the next day he said, “I want to do two”. He called me up that evening and said, “Let’s do five and the top prize will be a English Longbow of Yew with horn tips”. He asked me to run it for him.

So, in a month we went from a bar/lemonade wagon at a war to a huge raffle. Five bows will be given out. We will be selling twenty five hundred tickets at $1 each. We have found out that many states that you sell something then you are automatically entered into the raffle, so then it is not considered gambling. So, I am selling “Limited Edition Stickman” drawings that will be sent to you via email, and then you will be entered into the drawing. The drawing to be done at court during the Baronial War.

Jim saw a kingdom and a family in need and had the means to make a difference. His mailing address is in the Midrealm but mainly he plays in Meridies. For myself, my part is to honor a pledge given a decade ago. For Jim, it is purely out of love.

For more details on how to help and get involved please look up on Facebook  “Bows for Calontir Falcons”. or contact me directly at italonorman1187@gmail.com We have setup an account with Google Wallet. Once the $2500 goal is reached that money will be sent to the Brooks.

Thank you for helping.
