The East Kingdom is saddened to hear of the loss of the Calontir Falcons on the way home from Gulf Wars.   Master Freiderich von Blumenkamp of Calontir, Lady Lora Ann Rós and their son Liam’s car caught on fire on the return trip. Although all the humans escaped safely, unfortunately, none of the birds escaped. Artemis, a 21 year old Harris Hawk, Cinnamon a 5 year old Red Tailed Hawk. Winter a 4 year old gyrfalcon, Lady a 16 year old Aplomado falcon and Ra’n, a 4 year old American Kestrel died in the fire.

While on site the Gazette interviewed Master Freiderich, the Gulf War Falconry Coordinator, and Lady Lora Ann. They taught us the difference between a falcon and a hawk, spoke about falconry as a blood sport in SCA period and also about the modern process of becoming a licensed falconer in the United States. From October to March they hunt with the birds about 3 times a week. In April the birds molting brings the hunting season to a close.

Most magically, Master Friederich, Lady Lora Ann and another falconer from Trimaris allowed visitors to the mews to hold the falcons on their wrists.  All who saw the raptors were charmed by their beauty and grace. Both Her Majesty Thyra and Her Highness Etheldreda visited the Falconry tent, and many members of the populace posted photos and stories of their experiences to Facebook, considering it one of the highlights of the event.

A fund to help the family of falconers has been set up by Lord Andromir Vukovic of Calontir. From the announcement posted on Facebook: ” The account is titled Falcon Fund. The intent is to collect funds to be dispersed to Lora Ann, Fredrick, and Liam (The Brooks family) via their bank account or to a disposable gift card. This is a convenient way to those in and out of Kingdom to show their kindness…otherwise, collection points for those wishing to give “made/purchased” pieces will be announced at a later time or you may contact me via private message. To connect to the PayPal account, the name is Falcon Fund and the email associated is andromirvukovic@ymail.com. Should you still wish to donate, but not via PayPal…contact me privately…”. Lord Andromir Vukovic, Mundanely known as Andy Cardin.

Q&A: East Kingdom Webminister

Tags

tmp_27697-download_20150320_135110-1941433276This is one of a series of Q&A articles with East Kingdom Officers.  The Gazette thanks Lord Lorenz Greylever,  East Kingdom Webminister, for answering our questions.

Please describe your job responsibilities.
I am the Lead “Defender” for the East Kingdom’s Æther Realms. In other words, if it has something to do with the security, usability, accessibility and supportability of the Official on-line/Internet presence of the East Kingdom, it falls to myself and my team to make certain that it is ready for the populace of the Kingdom and its varying regions to use.
– This includes but is not limited to:
.. Every Local branch, Kingdom Office and Royal Guild website that exists for the Eastern Realms
.. Email forwards and Email lists for each Local branch, etc
.. Email lists for the Polling Orders
Educating the East Kingdom populace about what the Office of the Webminister is and how it helps the Kingdom, but more importantly, what the Office is not.
– Reducing the confusion surrounding several aspects of the services available to the Kingdom, including but not limited to:
.. The East Kingdom Calendar of Events (working with the Chronicler and Pikestaff Editor). The Webministry only makes certain that the Calendar is up and functioning properly. We do not police for content or completion of the entries for inclusion in the Pikestaff. The Local branch Seneschal and the Kingdom Chronicler do these tasks.
.. The East Kingdom Order of Precedence (working with the Office of the Brigantia Herald). The Webministry only makes certain that the website for the op is active and accessible. All content is supplied and updated by the Shepherd’s Crook Herald, or by a designated Webminister assistant when needed.
o Training Local branch, Kingdom Office and Royal Guild Webministers in best practices for website design and use. You do not have to be a modern webmaster to be a Webminster for the East, however knowing some basics will go a long way in supporting the website the Webminister has.
o Overseeing the 150+ websites and making certain that all are in compliance with Modern, Society and Kingdom acceptable use policies.
o Overseeing the 1700+ email addresses that are used throughout the Kingdom for proper use by the designated Officer.
o There’s certainly more, but you’ll never get this to print if I don’t stop somewhere. Continue reading
