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”→
Just a reminder that the Scribal Moot will be this coming Tuesday May 23rd. Our special guest teacher will be Mistress Eva who will be teaching white work. If you have your own supplies please bring them!
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.
This is to let all and sundry know that the schedule for Hafla is up! Please visit the Hafla Schedule page for details. There will be plenty of time for open dance as well as a beginner and intermediate dance classes. Come and join us for a super day!
I hope that everyone has had a very happy holiday season!
The Shire’s Yule event went off without a hitch and we would like to thank everyone that was able to join us. If you couldn’t make it, hopefully we will see you soon! As is tradition, new Keepers were chosen at this year’s Shire Yule. We would like to congratulate our recipients:

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.
The Defenders are the Shire of Quintavia’s Champions. They have won the right to bear their titles and regalia through our annual Defender’s Tourney.
This year we will be choosing the defenders with the good will of our Neighbors in Bergental at their annual Sommer Draw event at the beautiful Moses scout reservation, June 15-17th.(The tournaments will be on the 16th) The shire member that places the best in each of the competition will be named as the Defender for the current year.
Specific to the Arts and Science competition
Our annual Arts and Sciences competition is being held at Sommer Draw in Bergental this weekend. Bring your best completed projects or works in progress. Documentation will not be required, but you will be asked to provide a quick write up describing your submission. The entries will be judged blindly by a panel of judges and populace vote. Good luck to all, and we look forward to seeing your projects next weekend!
