Calontir Event Planning
We've tried to bring useful information about hosting events altogether in one place. Most of this information is available on the various officer pages at the Kingdom of Calontir.
*These are for events that do not require a bid*
Before the Event
Event date - Your first step is deciding on a date. This helpful guide from the Reeve explains the items you should consider. Once you decide on a date complete and submit this form to the Reeve. If you have any questions you can contact the Reeve at Reeve@calontir.org
Event Site - Once you have confirmation from the Reeve you can reserve your site.
Insurance & Equestrian Insurance - Click the links for documents
Wheelchair accessibility - Ramps, wide doorways, bathroom stalls, and elevators if multiple floors.
Adult-sized tables, chairs, and toilets -Elementary Schools can be an issue
Accessibility crews - volunteers at gate to help people
negotiate walkways and carry their belongings into the main area
Parking - add marked spaces near the buildings for
handicapped spots. Just like we do for TRM and Staff
Reserve a row at the front of court for those with a hearing, sight, or mobility impairments
Arrange for a Good Hand Herald for sign language interpretation
Post ingredient lists with the menu ahead of the event for feast and inn so people with food allergies can make other arrangements if needed
Designate a quiet room so those who need a calm place have somewhere to go
Allow outside food in the building - those with children, blood sugar issues, and food allergies likely need more than what an inn or concession stand can accommodate
All gender bathrooms
Bathroom baskets - feminine products, band aids, bobby pins, hair ties, safety pins, hand lotion
Does the site allow alcohol?
Does the site allow weapons?
Activities - Some activities require individuals with warrants or marshallates. And some duties must be completed by paid members. Be sure you have a qualified person to oversee these activities if you want to include them in your event.
Marshalls are needed for: Rattan fighting, Cut & Thrust, Archery, Thrown Weapons, and Equestrian.
Warranted people are needed to oversee youth activities. Their assistants do not have to be warranted.
At gate a paid member must handle the money. The assistants handing out site tokens and getting forms signed do not have to be paid members.
Event Flyer - Once you've decided on the date, site, and activities it's time to submit your flyer. The flyer must be published in the MEWs 2 months prior to the event. Here are the guidelines for the event flyer from the Chronicler. And here is the form to submit your flyer.
Event Fee - If you are charging a fee for your event you will have to track members and non-members separately for the after event reports. See pages 109 through 119 of the Exchequer's Handbook for instructions.
Royalty - You can invite Royalty to attend your event by contacting their Chamberlain at TRM-Chamberlain@calontir.org
Publicity - You can advertise your event on Facebook. The Social Media Officer put together a helpful guide on how to do that. And any questions can be directed to email@example.com
