Cross of Calatrava

Seneschal March 2017

To the readers of this missive, the most noble and gentle members of our Great Kingdom of Calontir and our noble friends, Master Brendan Mac an tSaoir, Seneschal of Calontir sends greetings and wishes for every good fortune.

I want to thank you for contacting myself or my gifted deputies when you have had questions, suggestions, or requests. It is helpful to me to know what your concerns are.

It is our great Blessing and Fortune to have the Coronation of Ashir and Ashland this winter. May Their reign be Long and Prosperous.

As a Kingdom who looks far into the future, we look for the day when we again have Heirs to the Throne of Calontir. It will soon be time for those with the desire to be the next rulers of Calontir to compete or inspire another to compete in Crown Tournament. If you believe this to be you, instruct yourself with our Kingdom Law and the SCA governing documents, which can be found on our website. Become familiar with the rules and requirements for governing the kingdom.

To help prepare yourselves for this great responsibility, seek out trusted advisors, especially among our Counts and Dukes about the joys and challenges of reigning this great land.

Ensure that your membership is current. Their Majesties will soon ask for Letters of Intent and state Their requirements for entrance into the List. Please make sure you get those letters, a copy of your membership card, and copy of your driver’s license to Their Majesties and myself in a timely manner.

I want to remind the Kingdom that bids for CalonCon are open. The cutoff date to receive them is February 28th, 2017, but sooner would surely make us smile on your bid.

I remain the most humble servant of our Great Crown and Kingdom.

Brendan Mac an tSaoir
