There have been a lot of questions about the email and list services. For everyone who need the information I have places a link to the kingdom FAQ below as well as a reminder on how to set up an officer email address in an email client. For setting up clients on mobile devices please refer to the more comprehensive how-to in the FAQ link below.

Next business meeting is December 10th at 11:00am at the MEMEC site . Bring a chair as the building is getting cleared out so I don’t know if there will be enough chairs
Shire Yule is is December 30th 12 to 4pm. Come join us for potluck festivities, Keeper awards, and Viking swap!
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.
Please join us for the November business meeting at the Camelot site (69 village court, berlin, ma) from 11:00am to 1:00pm
We have officer elections, plus other shenigans like the shire yule gathering to plan.
For the current elections , Seneschal — Matthias Grunwald Currently running unopposed,
Captain of the Archers, Thrya Eiriksdottir currently running unopposed,
Webmister Perronnelle de Croy currently running unopposed.
TW Marshal is also up, and I have someone I’ve been talking to but that hasn’t fully been sorted out yet, so we’ll likely have special election in the winter to fill that position. Anyone is welcome to run for any position, please send a short letter of intent to email@example.com and I’ll add you to the list.
If you want to get some awesome, fun archery in this weekend, I recommend going to Towers:
We are overrun with spiders and rats and ticks! Join us this Sunday,

The weather looks mighty iffy for Sunday afternoon (the % chance of precip jumps from 10 to 70% at 2pm), so I am not planning to run practice.
If any of the other marshals really wants to run practice, that’s ok with me.
The SCA is a volunteer organization and work best when people are recognized for the good work that they do. The heart of that recognition is the Kingdom (and baronial) award system. But for people to be brought to the royals attention they need to be written in. I was going to post some thoughts on writing people in for awards but it turns out someone has already posted a very comprehensive guide on the eastkingdom wiki.
Please check it out if you haven’t done so already.
The awards form can be found here http://surveys.eastkingdom.org/index.php/945932/lang-en (it is linked on the main page of the EK website).
One tip that I like that isn’t covered in the wiki article is I save all of my award recommendations, as with any writing style it helps to practice it. So having an archive of recommendations to look over when I’m written people in helps make the next one better.
Between the Award of Arms, AOA level “silver” awards, grant level awards and peerages, there is a large range of awards focusing on people’s progression as they put more time and energy and skill in.
The OP database page as a nice listing of the awards and handy way of searching if some has an award already.
The weather looks meh, and unless another marshal wants to run practice, I believe all our regulars are busy this Sunday.
Attendance has been light during September, but the plan is to run through October and as long as the weather is warm enough (which could be a long time this year, who knows). Put it in your calendars, and come out to shoot with us!
The next business meeting will be October 8th from 11 – 1pm in the Camelot Common House. 69 Village court Berlin Ma. We will be in the downstairs meeting room this time. We’ll talk about Yule and whatever other mischief has been dreamt up in the previous month..
As a reminder In November we will have elections for Seneschal, Webminister, Captain of Archers, and Thrown Weapons Officer. If you are interested in serving in any of these roles please send me a letter of intent. I do plan on putting my name in for another term, but always welcome other folks to step forward as well if there is interest. Please email letters to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Letter can be a one/two paragraph email on why you like to do with the office.
Finally business meeting minutes are archived on the site for perusal. See
