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 Arts and Sciences Master Scheduler Position



Greetings Calontir!

The Arts and Sciences Master Scheduler position will be vacant before
Queen's Prize.  The position's chief responsibility is matching
available judges, entrants, and time slots at two annual competitions,
Queen's Prize in the Fall and Kingdom Arts and Sciences in the Spring.

The position is a statutory deputy of the Arts and Sciences Minister,
and so I will be accepting all the letters of intent to serve and
selecting a candidate.  There is no requirement for any particular
level of rank or award for this job, and I'm open to any sincere
applicant.

A spreadsheet application has been used for the complex task of
matching judge proficiencies, entrants, and time slots.  Functional
knowledge of Excel or a similar program is therefore highly desirable,
but I will still be open to an applicant not highly proficient or even
persuasive about his or her ability and time to do it off-line.

Applicants need to have reliable email/internet access and, even if
not proficient in spreadsheets yet, and the computer skills to at
least process the entrant, judge, and sponsor information.

Please include the following in your Letter of Intent:

·         Your full name, both modern and SCA.

·         A brief summary of your SCA experience, particularly with
respect to arts and sciences competitions.

·         Why you would like to be Master Scheduler.

·         Your knowledge and experience with Excel or comparable
spreadsheet programs.

·         Please send letters of intent to myself at
ArtsSciences@calontir.org.  They must be received not later than June
30, 2016, but prior to Lilies is preferable.

Yours in service,

Lord Paul Adler

Kingdom of Calontir Minister of Arts and Sciences

Kingdom Seneschal Position

 

Unto the hard working populace of the Kingdom of Calontir, greetings and well met!

It hardly seems possible, but my time as Kingdom Seneschal grows short.  While I will be stepping down in November, I would like to begin securing a successor to the office, so that we can work together to ensure a smooth and safe transition.  To that end, Their Majesties and I will accept letters of application until June 1.  Candidates should be organized, able to report timely, have good listening and problem solving skills, and be a good communicator.  Please include in your letter of interest why you would like to be seneschal, what skills you feel make you a good candidate, your experiences within the SCA and the modern world that relate, and provide your membership information.  If you are interested but not sure what the job entails, don't hesitate to reach out and I'll be happy to provide more information.  Thank you for considering serving your kingdom!

In service,
Duchess Aislinn Morcroft
