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

Email Posts Poll

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.

What is your preferred solution:

Hi,

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 seneschal@quintavia.eastkingdom.org and I’ll add you to the list.

Thank you,

Matthias

Archery canceled 10/29

Hi archers,

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.
