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 email@example.com. Should you still wish to donate, but not via PayPal…contact me privately…”. Lord Andromir Vukovic, Mundanely known as Andy Cardin.

From the Kingdom Seneschal:
Seneschal, East Kingdom
Greeting unto all the exchequers of the East Kingdom.
Many groups have not sent in completed the End of Year reports. By my estimate less than half of the groups have sent in the the fourth quarter 2014 report. If you have not sent in a completed Q4 report, you need to do that now. Groups that do not have a bank account need to file the negative report each quarter; that form is on the exchequer website. While some groups have contacted the regional deputies for additional time, that is not the case for most groups.
All exchequer warrants are renewed on Feb 15, based on a timely and complete Q4 report being submitted. The reporting requirements from the exchequer webpage are below.
Q1=Jan, Feb, March: due April 30; Q2=April, May, June: due July 31; Q3=July, Aug, Sept: due October 31; Q4/EOY=Oct, Nov, Dec: due January 31.
The reports should be sent to your local Seneschal, Regional Deputy Exchequer and Kingdom Exchequer and include:
- All event reports not previously sent
- All bank statements for the quarter
- All cancelled checks (front only) for the quarter
- A ledger, cumulative to the quarter being reported
- A complete and balanced SCA Financial report, cumulative to the quarter being reported
Event reports are due 30 days after the event, to the Regional Deputy and the Kingdom Exchequer. This should include the check for the Kingdom’s portion of the profits for Kingdom level events.
Non Member Surcharge reports are due to the NMS Deputy within 14 days after the event. The NMS check is due to the NMS Deputy within 30 days after the event.
Maestra Ignacia la Ciega,
East Kingdom Chancellor of the Exchequer
