  • Spring RUSH
  • Lilies War Work Day and Lilies (postponed to fall)
  • Spring Crown Tourney

On-line Classes & Chats


RUSH would like to announce that for the duration of event closures due to the current epidemic, we will be offering RUSH credit for online classes that meet the following criteria.

  • Classes must be at least an hour long.
  • Classes must be taught by a SCA person.
  • Classes must be SCA related per normal RUSH criteria.

If you teach or take a class, please send the following to RUSH@calontir.org

  • Instructor’s name (mundane & SCA)
  • Student’s name (mundane & SCA)
  • Name of class and/or class description
  • Length of class (time)

We would love to encourage the wearing of garb as one would to event classes, but we understand that during this trying time, that may not always be feasible so we are waving that requirement during this temporary offering.

If you have any questions, please contact us and we will try to get to everybody as soon as we can. And please, above all, take care of yourselves and stay healthy.

In service, Quiteria la Roja

Schedule confirmed as of now -

  • May 20th – His Grace Ashir – Class to be determined and posted in the future.

We will try to keep this going as long as we are under the SCA moratorium.
