Spring Tidings

Greetings,

As we shake off the winter now is a good time to see all the activities that the Shire does.

Practices & Meetings

In addition there is a host of Central region events coming up that look fun to play at, including Kingdom Archery and HL champion events.

The May business meeting is this sunday from 11Am to 1pm at the Mosaic Common house,

All are welcome, there might be mystery snacks…

PS Respond to your polls if you haven’t 🙂

Open positions

Hello,

As with the any group in the SCA the Shire of Quintavia is a volunteer organization  and as such we depend on the good will and energy of the people filling the Officer roles so everyone can continue to have fun.

While we do well in keeping roles filled,  there is always a small turnover as people take well deserved breaks, and the desire to have more deputies to spread the work around

In particular Elena and Perronelle would like to take step back from the Chamberlain and Chancellor Minor positions respectively.

 

On the job training is happily provided 🙂

A listing of current positions, can be found here.

Shire Officers

If you are interested in any of these positions, or being a deputy please let myself and the current officer know,

seneschal@quintavia.eastkingdom.org

Thank you,

Matthias
