Welcome!

The Kingdom of Calontir is a regional group within the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), an international organization dedicated to recreating aspects of the Middle Ages. If you are unfamiliar with the SCA, we would suggest starting with the newcomers section.

The region that makes up Calontir covers most of Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri and a touch of Arkansas. If you are interested in contacting the SCA within this area, take a look at the Groups and Branches list or the Calontir Map. Join us as we learn about history by making it come alive. Follow us on Facebook, or you can contact us at info@calontir.org.

What’s new in Calontir

Kingdom Chatelaine Applications

Greetings Calontir!  As you know, CalonCon was last weekend, and the Chatelaines were busy sharing ideas about recruitment, retention and demos.  I would like to remind everyone that, when doing a demo, we are ALL Chatelaines.  Demos are meant to recruit new people into this wonderful dream we all share.  So, make the effort to talk to people.  Answer their questions.  Ask THEM what they are interested in.  Use this opportunity to explain WHY you love what you do.  Many other ideas were discussed, which I am sure your local Chatelaines will share with you.

It is with mixed emotions that I announce that my warrant for this office expires in January.  I have loved working with everyone these past two years.  My Chatelaines are enthusiastic and will make my successor's job very easy and enjoyable.  Applications for Kingdom Chatelaine will be accepted through the end of September and interviews will be done at Crown Tourney in October.  Please email your letters to myself and the Kingdom Seneschal with this link: Kingdom Chatelaine Application Email
In eternal service to the dream,
Lady Lucia of Vatavia
