Hello to the mighty populace of the Shire of Quintavia!
This is your friendly, local, webminister checking in. At the past business meeting, this past Sunday, we discussed the weekly email notices of posts on the blog. The general feedback was that the way the email blasts are not working as is. The information, when it arrives in your inbox is too late to be useful using a once weekly blast. I picked this option initially to minimize the amount of mail into your inbox because I know that we all get more than enough. To that end, there are three options that are available.
At the meeting we discussed adding a second email blast and making it go on Monday and Fridays. With the new update to the plugin it allows us to do an immediate email blast with the newest post. Unfortunately, it’s an all or nothing deal. So if three posts are written on Monday, you’ll get three separate emails. Granted, there’s not a lot of fluff that is posted here and getting three in a day would be a once in a blue moon occasion. With this in mind, I would ask that you please select your preferred solution to improve our current situation in the poll below.
Sunday fencing will resume on this Sunday, August 20th, 2017 at 1PM at the Mary Elizabeth McGrath Educational Center in Millbury, MA. Directions are available here. For additional question or information please use the contact form below to contact our Rapier Marshal.
This month’s business meeting will be held Sunday, July 16, 2017 at 11 AM at Camelot Cohousing Common House located at 69 Village Ct., Berlin, MA.
In addition the weather is looking like it will be in our favor so Archery practice will be held tomorrow at Rozi’s house in Stow and will be running from 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM. Directions are available on the Directions Page.
Good morning A&S friends!
Just a friendly reminder that the next scribal moot will be on June 27th at Camelot. Our special guest teach is our very own EK Signet Nataliia!
You may be asking yourself, “Self? Why is Feilinn posting about this so early in the month?”
Fear not, I have the answer! The reason is because there are also two pretty cool and pretty crazy SCA events going on in June that might be of interest to people. A decent amount of local people are making the various trips and they are great opportunities to meet people and learn something new.
The Known World Dance and Music Symposium is June 15-18th in Baltimore (Kingdom of Atlantia) – http://www.kwds.org/
The Known World Heraldic and Scribal Symposium is June 23-25th in Knoxville (Kingdom of Meridies) – http://kwhss2017.nant-y-derwyddon.com/

Unto the fair populace of the wondrous Shire of Quintavia do I, Perronnelle de Croy, send greetings!
I write to you on behalf of the younger generations that will be attending the glorious Battle of Five Armies in late August. I will be the Youth & Teen activity and class coordinator and would like to ask for anyone interested in teaching a class or leading an activity or helping in some way, shape or form, to contact me using the form below. If you have an idea but need help fleshing it out, please ask!
To the teens out there: what would you like to see? Learn? Would you like to teach something? I want to hear from you!
For now I have these activities planned:
- Queen Caoilfhionn’s Service Initiative
- Treasure Hunt for the younger
- Family S’mores bar (YUM!)

Greetings Unto The Fair Populace of Quintavia!
This is your friendly neighborhood webminister. It’s been a while since you have heard from me and some of you may be confused as to new mail that you have been receiving that look a little odd. I apologize because this is my doing.
I have been handed a tool that for officers and for myself is supposed to help streamline the communication process. Keywords are “supposed to.” It’s taken a while to get the kinks worked out but I believe that I now have this particular bit of communication ironed out. What does this mean for you? Only that weekly you will receive an email with the latest news. Only once a week, on Saturdays. (OFFICERS – Take note that notices for the upcoming week and such should be posted prior to Saturday!) That’s it. Simple. Nothing else will change. For the more involved answer and the why this has come into play keep reading! Continue reading “Email Posting and Other News”
Good morning everyone!

I just want to take a moment say thank you to everyone who came out to our Hafla on Saturday!
First I’d like to thank the set-up and clean up crews: Rosina and Andreiko, Corwin – you weren’t able to stay for the event but came and help out anyways. Our head cat-herder Matthias, Meabh, Mikjáll, and his Grace Edward and his squire (so sorry I can’t recall your name!) Set up was done with twenty minutes to spare and clean up was even faster. You are all amazing.
My Kitchen crew: Lord Alexsei and Lady Elvira led the charge and delivered food that was raved about, throughout the hall. Thank you for making it all work in a new space.
The magnificent Lady Toi….without you the hall would have been bare and our tummies slightly less full. Thank you for everything you do for this event year after year.
Her Grace Thyra who is my dace group liaison and music provider.
A huge thank you goes out to our dancers (BRS, Baklava, and the Eves) and out attendees. We love seeing you each year and without you all it would be one pretty dull day! I hope I’ve not missed anyone but if I have and even if I haven’t: Thank you, thank you, thank you.
It’s such a pleasure and a joy to help put this together but I could never do it alone.
Until next year!
Lady Perronnelle de Croy
