Pennsic Fighters: Check Your Authorization Expiration Today

Unto the Armored and Rapier fighters of the East, the Kingdom Minister of the Lists sends greetings.

If you plan on fighting at Pennsic, please check your authorization card right now an make sure that your authorization doesn’t expire before the end of Pennsic. It’s easy to forget the paperwork in the midst of drilling and training. The cutoff date for mailing your authorization renewal to the East Kingdom Ministry of Lists in order to get your new card in time for Pennsic is Friday, July 7th. Authorization forms postmarked after that date will not get processed in time for you to have a new card by Pennsic. I will be collecting authorization forms directly from Great Northeastern War, so forms filled out at that event will also make the deadline, but please, if you don’t have to, don’t wait until that last minute.

Make it easier on the Marshals and MoL’s who volunteer at Pennsic as well as yourself. Get your authorization renewal forms filled out and mailed in ASAP.

Mail forms to:
EK MoL
PO Box 1168
Westbrook, ME 04098

Spring Crown ‘Thank You’s

I survived my first Crown Tourney as East Kingdom Minister of Lists with my wits intact largely due to the efforts of several awesome people who pulled together, all in the same direction, to run this tournament. We had 35 combatants (which, for those of you unfamiliar with tournament theory, is a truly awkward number) and we managed to get through it all well before the sun went down!

At the table diligently keeping track all throughout the tourney were four stalwarts, Mistress Anastasia Guta, Baroness Ellesbeth Donofrey, THL Andrieko Eferiev, and Lady Olivia Baker. The four of you made a superb team and I am grateful for your skill, experience, and cheerful, cooperative attitudes.

The Settmour Swamp List Minister, Lady Lu An-Hua, and her deputy Jocelyn Wulf Le Queynte, as well as the event steward Master Galefridus were such excellent hosts! We had all that we could ask for. Every time we needed something, there it was. Thank you.

All around the field the fantastic heralds and list-runners managed by Mistress Suba Al-Hadid kept the lists informed and got us the fight results in a timely manner. Lady Rosina juggled the tourney shields and kept all of the tourney trees updated. In addition, Mistress Suba and Master Rowen got us all organized ahead of the tourney and built and laminated the card deck for tracking the fighters. This was such a great help.

Duke Kenric, as Marshal-in-Charge, was a huge help both in sorting out the tourney tree and how the tournament would be run ahead of time, and also as an excellent collaborator on the day. I know he had a lot of other responsibilities in addition to helping with what we needed at the MoL table and I am grateful for all his assistance.

Lastly and most of all I am grateful to all of the combatants and consorts. Every single one of you (and I think I spoke to you all at least once or twice) interacted with the list table with courtesy, waiting patiently with your questions when we were busy, and taking the news with grace if you were told the answer to your question wasn’t here, but elsewhere. You all were great and fun to work with.

Congratulations to our new Prince and Princess, Ivan and Mathilde!! It was an honor to serve on your wonderful day, and I’m looking forward to when we do this again to choose your heirs!

Regards,
~Mylisant Grey, East Kingdom Minister of Lists

Greetings from the New EK MoL

It was with much gratitude for the amazing work done by Mistress Sabina Lutrell that I assumed the office of East Kingdom MoL yesterday.

I am looking forward to working with all of you, and welcome any comments or suggestions that any of you have for making the office work for you and for the fighters and fencers of the East.

You can now download new copies of the forms from this website at your convenience. Updated versions of the rest of the forms (replacement auth. card, event report) will be available soon.  I encourage all MoLs and Marshals to destroy any existing blank authorization forms.

All new completed forms should be sent to:

EKMoL
PO Box 1168
Westbrook, ME 04098

As I stepped up, I left the office of Northern Regional MoL vacant and I am actively looking for volunteers or suggestions of people to approach for that position. The position of Central Region Deputy MoL is also vacant and I am actively recruiting for that position as well.

I am very pleased that THL Andreiko Eferiev has agreed to remain in his position as Deputy Kingdom Minister of Lists and am looking forward to working with him and the regional deputies to continue to uphold the excellent standard of service to the East set by my predecessor.

I would like to take this opportunity to remind all MoLs that annual reports are due.  You can file your annual report by filling out this form on the East Kingdom MoL website.

I am very grateful for the warm welcome that I have received so far from the martial and MoL communities.
Warm Regards,
Mylisant Grey, East Kingdom Minister of Lists

MoL Forms Updated

Greetings,

I have updated all of  MOL forms (with the help of Baroness Ellesbeth Donofrey) to help reduce the amount of problem paperwork in the MOL office. They are available on the MOL website. You may also email me and I will email them to you right away.

All old forms should be destroyed and the new forms are to be used immediately.

The new forms have a space for an MOL to sign if at an event. If there is no MOL present please write “not present”. Please fill in the event name. These additions will allow for better follow up from the MOL office.

I appreciate your cooperation in this matter.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
