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.

Kingdom Officer Letters

Last month you said you were going to read the Officers Letters in the Mews. There is interesting and important information in there, and you want to be an informed member of the Kingdom. But, you put off logging into the site, downloading the PDF and now you feel you can just wait until next month's newsletter.

>Well, how about this. The Officer Letters are now online. Head over to http://www.calontir.org/missives/ and get quick access to the important and interesting information you want to keep up with.

If you use a news aggregator, and I highly rate feedly.com, you can follow the RSS feed at http://www.calontir.org/missives/feed/.

I would like to thank Giovanni for setting this up for us.
