Ansteorra Event Planning Calendar

Last updated: July 29, 2015


Kingdom Event Calendar Information:

The Calendar Secretary maintains the Ansteorran calendar of events and submits it to the Kingdom Chronicler for publication in the Black Star, the Kingdom newsletter. The only official calendar is the one published in the Black Star. The online version is considered unofficial (please refer to Ansteorran Kingdom Law: V.1 Subsection 2.A) and for planning purposes only. This distinction is necessary in order to determine which version of the calendar document governs.

To hold an official kingdom event, as per Kingdom Law a group must:
1. Acquire a date on the Kingdom Calendar. See Calendar Procedures below.
2. An event announcement must be published in the Black Star, the Kingdom newsletter. Contact the Kingdom Chronicler.
3. One or more of the warranted officers of the group must be present and responsible for the conduct of the event.

Calendar Date Request Procedures:

Please read these instructions BEFORE contacting the Calendar Secretary for a Kingdom Calendar date.

To make additions to this calendar, send a Request for Kingdom Calendar Date form (with the Autocrat Warrant portion filled out) to the mailing address below. If you want confirmation of the status of your request for date, please make sure your email address is on the form and legible. For forms for kingdom and multiple group events, as well as Excel versions, please see the Reference Library.

Fill out the form completely, including a second and third choice of event date (month/day/year). Additions and changes are constantly made to the calendar. A weekend that appears open when the form is filled out may have another event on it when the form is received and processed by the calendar secretary. Events that are not forbidden explicitly by Kingdom Law may still be subject to review by the Kingdom Seneschal; see this policy for more information.

Only regular mail requests for dates or scans/faxes of original documents, with signatures will be honored; no email or telephone requests. Your request will only be put on the calendar after your documents are received by the calendar deputy. Do not send documents via any delivery method that requires a signature upon delivery. Please send documents to the mundane name of the calendar deputy.
