Greetings to all,

I am Norah Gregoire most of you know me by my SCA name. I am Lady Cellach Dhonn inghean Mhic an Mhadaidh and I am currently the Tir Mara Deputy Chatelaine.

My goals for my first term are to translate the EK Chatelaine web site in French and to start a bilingual Tir Mara Press folder.

Demos are important for recruiting new members. The EK Chatelaine web site has a lot of informations, but all of it is in English. So to observe Quebec laws; flyers, handout and promotional handbook need to be in French. I think that in spring 2016 most of the EK web site will be bilingual. The Press folder is started but will occupy most of my time next year.

What I would like to include in the Tir Mara Press Folder is group flyers and a presentation of SCA, East Kingdom, Tir Mara , local groups. I need photos to start the Press Folder and to do some promotional flyers.

Where I can use your help:
For each photo I need you to fill the requested form. You will find it attached.

In particular, I’m looking for photos of :

  • Tir Mara fighters
  • Tir Mara fencers
  • Tir Mara archers
  • Tir Mara artisans
  • Tir Mara dancers and musicians
  • Feast
  • Royalty attending an event or Court
    (Photos of all people in action will be preferred)

If you have a group promotional flyer could you send it, it will go in the Press Folder.

Photos, forms and group flyers can be sent to:

Thank you for your help, if you need more info don<t hesitate to ask.

Best regards,

In service,
Norah Gregoire
Tir Mara Deputy Chatelaine

Bonjour à tous,

Je suis Norah Grégoire connue dans la SCA sous Lady Cellach Dhonn inghean Mhic an Mhadaidh. Je suis présentement Député Châtelaine du Tir Mara.

Je me suis fixée comme objectifs à réaliser dans mon premier mandat à traduire le site du Châtelain du Royaume de l’Est et de commencer un document de Presse bilingue pour les groupes du Tir Mara.
Nous avons besoin de dépliants promotionnels, de dépliant de groupe et un document de Presse que l’on pourrait utiliser lors des démos.

Les démos sont un excellent moyen pour recruter de nouveaux membres. Le site internet de L’Office du Châtelain du Royaume de l’Est est intéressant et utile malheureusement toutes les informations et documents sont en anglais. Pour être conforme aux lois du Québec, il était nécessaire de traduire en français pour permettre aux groupes du Québec d’y avoir accès. Je crois que la majorité du site sera traduit pour le printemps 2016.

J’ai besoin de photos pour faire le document de Presse du Tir Mara ainsi que des dépliants promotionnels pour le Tir Mara.

J’ai besoin de votre aide :
Pour chaque photo soumise, l’autorisation de photographies doit être remplie. (Vous la trouverez
Attachée à cette lettre).

J’ai besoin plus particulièrement des photos de :

  • Combattants du Tir Mara
  • Escrimeurs du Tir Mara
  • Archers du Tir Mara
  • Danseurs et musiciens du Tir Mara
  • Artisans du Tir Mara
  • Festin
  • Royaux participants au festin, à une Cour, ou à une activité
    (Les photos de personnes s’adonnant à leurs activités seront privilégiées)

Si votre groupe possède un dépliant promotionnel, pourriez-vous me l’envoyer afin que je puisse l’inclure dans le dossier de Presse.

Les photos, les autorisations de photographies, le dépliant promotionnel de votre groupe peuvent être envoyés à :

Je vous remercie de l’attention que vous porterez à ma demande. Si vous désirez de plus amples informations, n’hésitez pas à me contacter.

En service,
Norah Grégoire
Député Châtelaine du Tir Mara
