The End of the Hundred Year’s Week.

Greetings all

Sorry about not posting last week. I’ve been getting ready for Gulf Wars. Magnus is already there and I’ll be there on Sunday. We’re excited and can’t wait to see so much of Calontir there.

Remember the Calontiri with the most volunteer hours will win his or her side at Lilies an extra 5 resurrections.

On to real part of today’s post, the end of The Hundred Years Week. We have huge and wonderful plans for the final Saturday of Lilies.

Everyone should plan on joining us all at the Grand Pavilion on Saturday afternoon for a Fyrdraca-load of fun.

First, the only battle that settles who wins, the English or the French, will be fought on Saturday. All of the resurrections after all of your work throughout the war will be used during this battle. This is what you are contributing with your gate shifts, teaching of classes, and everywhere else you help out. When you watch this battle, you will get to see your work allow fighters to resurrect and keep fighting.

Please note, the battle will be held around the Grand Pavilion. Though we rarely fight there, everything involved with the final celebration will be at the Grand Pavilion, so you know where to join us.

What else is happening as part of the final celebration? Glad you asked. Lots of stuff:

Their Majesties will have a closing court on Saturday.

The Three Rivers Players will show off their talents.

Musicians will play.

Bocce will happen, and if you leave your armor on the field, the armor will be bocce terrain.

More things yet to come that will be announced later.

Also, we encourage everyone to bring your leftovers to the Grand Pavilion. The remains of the Three Rivers party bar will be there. Bring what you don’t want to take home, show up to eat and drink what is brought, or both.

Basically, from noon throughout the afternoon will be a grand shindig to celebrate Lilies and Calontir. You’ll find out which side wins Lilies. You’ll see the Three Rivers Players. You’ll laugh. You’ll sing. And you’ll be there for closing court.

As mentioned, more details to come and we welcome other ideas.

We’ll talk about this more when we get back from Lilies, but it’s not to early for you to start planning to enjoy the second Saturday afternoon at Lilies with all your friends.

For now, though, time to follow the banners of Calontir to the battlefield.

Chieftains

Greetings all

I look forward to see all the entries in the Lily and Lion in any medium A&S competition this weekend. In the grand tradition of the SCA, you still have time to come up with an entry. After all, there’s two whole nights left.

Also at Chieftains, Magnus and I plan on hanging around the common area chatting with people about Lilies. Feel free to drop by and chat with us.

The next big thing on the horizon is, of course, Gulf Wars. We hope to see many of you there. Remember, the person with the most volunteer hours at Gulf Wars will provide 5 resurrections to his or her side.

That’s about it for the moment, we shall see you all on Saturday.

Classes at Lilies

Happy Kingdom Day Calontir!

And while we’re at it, happy birthday to Their Graces Maerwynn and Magdalena. What a day for Calontir.

Back to business. You know you want to teach at Lilies. You know you do, especially since each class taught will allow the instructor to provide a resurrection to his or her preferred side.

How do you register a class, you ask? Well, you’ve come to the right place as I have the answer. Simply go to:
http://www.medievalocity.com/eventsystem/
Once you have created a login and logged on, you can go to the Instructors tab and add new classes or modify existing classes. You can even specify location and schedule.

Don’t want to teach but want to take every class in existence? Well, again once you have logged on, you can go to the Class Schedule tab and see the classes for each day, where they are, and when they will happen.

If you have questions about A&S in general, you may email Mistress Thora at artsandsciences@lilieswar.org. If you want to know about RUSH credit, either as a teacher or a student, you may email Mistress Rahil at rush@lilieswar.org.

Speaking of arts and sciences, you still have over a week to make something for the Lion or Fleur-de-lys in any medium competition at Chieftains. If the winning entry is lion-themed, then the English will get 5 resurrections. If the winning entry is fleur-themed, then the French get the resurrections.

Also, please remember that the Calontiri with the most volunteer hours at Gulf Wars will earn their side 5 more resurrections.

That’s it for this week. Have fun Calontir.

Merchant Page Updated

Greetings all

The merchant page is updated with all the pertinent details for those who want to sell stuff. We are still adding a downloading Merchant Pre-Reg form. For now, however, if you are interested, you can email Eostra at merchants@lilieswar.org for that form. If you wait a week or so, you can simply download it from the Merchants page on the site.

I want to thank all who braved the weather and came to Clothier’s this past weekend. It was too warm for me. Nevertheless, I hope those who attended enjoyed Aislinn and Mathieu’s classes.

This weekend is Heraldic, Scribal, and Dance Symposium at Bellewode. I will be teaching a class on writing scroll texts for Hundred Years War personas.

I hope your Lion in any medium of Fleur-de-lys in any medium project is going well for Chieftains. Aislinn and I are excited to see what you all come up with.

Have a great weekend.

Rhodri

Various Event Notes

Greetings all

This week, I have lots of little notes about events coming up.

I hope to see many of you at Clothier’s Seminar this weekend. If you are interested in what the well-dressed Hundred Years War soldier wore, you should take Mathieu Chartrain’s class. Duchess Aislinn will also be teaching a class on 14th-century clothing and accessories.

The following weekend, at the Bellewode Heraldic, Scribal, and Dance Symposium I will be teaching a class about writing scroll texts for Hundred Years War personas.

At Chieftains, of course, we will be judging the entrants in the Lions vs. Fleur-de-lys in any medium arts and sciences competition. The winning entry will give his or her side at Lilies 5 resurrections. Contact Duchess Aislinn for more details.

Finally, if you are going to Gulf Wars, keep track of any service hours you might accrue. The Calontiri who works the most service hours at Gulf will give his or her side at Lilies 5 more resurrections.

Again, I hope to see many of you Clothier’s Seminar. If not, enjoy what looks to be a beautiful weekend.
