he 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
My time as Park Liaison is coming to an end, and a replacement is needed. The position is a project management/organizational type of position. You would be acting as a go-between for the kingdom and those that run the park where we hold Lilies War and King’s Company of Archers. The Park Liaison is a deputy of the Kingdom Seneschal, and works closely with the Lilies Chair.
We are looking for anyone who is organized, able to use multiple communication methodologies to contact park employees, and can travel to the Smithville area to attend a few meetings, sometimes on short notice, during the year. Applicants need to have reliable email/internet and phone access, must be a paid member, and undergo a SCA background check if selected.
If you would be interested in the position, please feel free to ask me any questions you may have. Letters of intent are due by 8/31 and I will be conducting interviews at Valor and QPT – please include at which of these two events you’d be available to speak to me.
Please include the following in your Letter of Intent, sent via email to email@example.com
· Your full name, both modern and SCA.
· Membership number and expiration date
· A brief summary of your SCA experience, especially as relates to the position.
· Why you would like to be Park Liaison.

Kingdom Chronicler Position
It has been my sincerest pleasure serving for the last year as your Chronicler. Unfortunately, as with everyone, real life must come first. As many of you are aware, my spouse and I will be moving to the Outlands in the near future. We are both very sad to leave our Calontir home; but, grand opportunities and adventures await us in Denver, CO. We will miss you all very very much, and still plan tto attend as many events as we areable. Calontir will always bee home, and you all will always be our family!
Letters of intent to serve as the new Kingdom Chronicler will be due no later than August 14, 2016. With interviews occurring soon there after. We ask that all letters be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com
If you have any questions about the position, please feel free to email me or HG Aislinn. We will both be glad to discuss any questions or concerns you may have regarding the position.
Please also note, the chronicler meeting at Caloncon is still happening. I or my deputy, Lord Corrigan, will still be producing the MEWS until a replacement is found. So it will be business as usual until further notice.
Thank you again, Calontir. I am forever greatful to have served in this position. Forever joyed to have fought beside or against many of you. Forever blessed to have raised my mug with you. Words can not explain how much it means to me to be a part of your family.
Yours in Service,
