    Greetings unto the List,

    The Order of the Grey Goose Shaft in An Tir is pleased to announce that our new Constitution was signed into Kingdom law at 12th Night this past weekend. A copy is attached.

    You may ask why this is important enough to post here?

    Here are the reasons:
    1. Our Constitution was loosely based on the White Scarf Constitution. The White Scarf is moving in the right direction of becoming a Peerage and is thus a good model for Archery.
    2. As a possible step in the Peerage direction, we recognize "Equivalent Orders" in other Kingdoms and grant them the following rights and privileges:

    G.  Equivalent Orders

    a.     An Equivalent Order is one from another Kingdom that:

                          i.        Requires exceptional skill and chivalry in one or more of the following areas: Target Archery, Combat Archery, Missile Combat, Thrown Weapons, Siege Weapons, or Equestrian Archery, and

                         ii.        Requires service to their Kingdom and its people, knowledge of the courtly graces, and obedience to the laws and ideals of their Kingdom and the Society, and

                        iii.        Confers a Grant of Arms upon the recipient, or confers an Award of Arms and is a polling order.

    b.    A member of an Equivalent Order visiting An Tir shall be considered equal in rank and honor to members of the Order of the Gray Goose Shaft, and shall be invited to attend meetings of the Order of the Gray Goose Shaft and share their knowledge and opinions at such meetings.  Such visitors shall not be counted in a polling, and shall not be invited to join long-term groups such as the An Tir OGGS email list.

    c.     A member of an Equivalent Order resident in An Tir shall be invited to participate in all activities of the Order, including polling, as if they were members of the Order.



    Our action is unilateral. We are extending these privileges to the members of the named Orders, without having any reciprocal agreement with any other Kingdoms.  We would of course welcome such reciprocal agreements. We see this as a first step to looking and acting like a Peerage. To this end, members of other Kingdom Archery Orders may wish to consider drafting your own Constitutions based on your standards and listing "Equivalent Orders".

    If you are a member of one of the Orders listed below and are visiting An Tir, or moving to An Tir, be sure to look us up.  You will be welcomed to have a voice and part in our Council.

    d.    Society Orders currently recognized as Equivalent Orders are:

                              i.        Royal Missile Company in West Kingdom (GoA)

                             ii.        Order of Sagittarius in East Kingdom (AoA, polling)

                            iii.        Greenwood Company in Middle Kingdom (GoA)

                            iv.        Commanders of the Azure Archers in Atenveldt (GoA)

                             v.        Order of the Split Arrow in Meridies (AoA, polling)

                            vi.        Order of Chiron of Caid (GoA)

                           vii.        Order of the Arc d'Or in Ansteorra (GoA)

                          viii.        Order of the Yew Bow in Atlantia (GoA)

                            ix.        Boga-Hirth in Calontir (GoA)

                             x.        Order of the Arc d'Or in Trimaris (GoA)

                            xi.        Order of the Sharparrow in Outlands (GoA)

                           xii.        Order of Strongbow’s Yeoman in Artemisia (GoA)

                          xiii.        Order of the Scarlet Guard in Æthelmearc (GoA)

                         xiv.        Lochac Company of Archers in Lochac (GoA)

                          xv.        Order of Aquila in Northshield (GoA)

          Greetings Lord Kirby, The OGGS in An Tir confers a Grant of Arms and is a Polling Order. We set our Equivalent standard as a Kingdom award that confers a GoA

            Greetings Lord Kirby,

            The OGGS in An Tir confers a Grant of Arms and is a Polling Order. 
            We set our "Equivalent" standard as a Kingdom award that confers a GoA or, an AoA and is a Polling Order.
            The Order of the Arrow and Bolt confers an AoA but is not a Polling Order. This certainly does not mean those receiving the OAB are less skilled than ours. But if we ever hope to achieve a Peerage status for Archery, we need a high bar to start. I would encourage you to work withing your Kingdom to create a higher level award for Missile skills.

            a.     An Equivalent Order is one from another Kingdom that:

                                  i.        Requires exceptional skill and chivalry in one or more of the following areas: Target Archery, Combat Archery, Missile Combat, Thrown Weapons, Siege Weapons, or Equestrian Archery, and

                                 ii.        Requires service to their Kingdom and its people, knowledge of the courtly graces, and obedience to the laws and ideals of their Kingdom and the Society, and

                                iii.        Confers a Grant of Arms upon the recipient, or confers an Award of Arms and is a polling order.


            In Service,

            Arion

            Greetings unto the List,

             

            The Order of the Grey Goose Shaft in An Tir is pleased to announce that our new Constitution was signed into Kingdom law at 12th Night this past weekend. A copy is attached.

             

            You may ask why this is important enough to post here?

                                iii.        Confers a Grant of Arms upon the recipient, or confers an Award of Arms and is a polling order.

            b.    A member of an Equivalent Order visiting An Tir shall be considered equal in rank and honor to members of the Order of the Gray Goose Shaft, and shall be invited to attend meetings of the Order of the Gray Goose Shaft and share their knowledge and opinions at such meetings.  Such visitors shall not be counted in a polling, and shall not be invited to join long-term groups such as the An Tir OGGS email list.

We are extending these privileges to the members of the named Orders, without having any reciprocal agreement with any other Kingdoms.  We would of course welcome such reciprocal agreements. We see this as a first step to looking and acting like a Peerage. To this end, members of other Kingdom Archery Orders may wish to consider drafting your own Constitutions based on your standards and listing "Equivalent Orders".

              Greetings Lord Kirby,

               

              The OGGS in An Tir confers a Grant of Arms and is a Polling Order. 

              We set our "Equivalent" standard as a Kingdom award that confers a GoA or, an AoA and is a Polling Order.

              The Order of the Arrow and Bolt confers an AoA but is not a Polling Order. This certainly does not mean those receiving the OAB are less skilled than ours. But if we ever hope to achieve a Peerage status for Archery, we need a high bar to start. I would encourage you to work withing your Kingdom to create a higher level award for Missile skills.

               

              a.     An Equivalent Order is one from another Kingdom that:

                                    i.        Requires exceptional skill and chivalry in one or more of the following areas: Target Archery, Combat Archery, Missile Combat, Thrown Weapons, Siege Weapons, or Equestrian Archery, and

                                   ii.        Requires service to their Kingdom and its people, knowledge of the courtly graces, and obedience to the laws and ideals of their Kingdom and the Society, and

                                  iii.        Confers a Grant of Arms upon the recipient, or confers an Award of Arms and is a polling order.

               

              In Service,

               

              Arion

              I was looking through the recognized orders in the society and I was wondering why Gleann Abhann’s Order of the arrow and the bolt was not included in that list?

              [Attachment(s) from arion12@... included below]

              Greetings unto the List,

               

              The Order of the Grey Goose Shaft in An Tir is pleased to announce that our new Constitution was signed into Kingdom law at 12th Night this past weekend. A copy is attached.

               

              You may ask why this is important enough to post here?

               

              Here are the reasons:

              1. Our Constitution was loosely based on the White Scarf Constitution. The White Scarf is moving in the right direction of becoming a Peerage and is thus a good model for Archery.

              2. As a possible step in the Peerage direction, we recognize "Equivalent Orders" in other Kingdoms and grant them the following rights and privileges:

               

              G.  Equivalent Orders

              a.     An Equivalent Order is one from another Kingdom that:

                                    i.        Requires exceptional skill and chivalry in one or more of the following areas: Target Archery, Combat Archery, Missile Combat, Thrown Weapons, Siege Weapons, or Equestrian Archery, and

                                   ii.        Requires service to their Kingdom and its people, knowledge of the courtly graces, and obedience to the laws and ideals of their Kingdom and the Society, and

                                  iii.        Confers a Grant of Arms upon the recipient, or confers an Award of Arms and is a polling order.

              b.    A member of an Equivalent Order visiting An Tir shall be considered equal in rank and honor to members of the Order of the Gray Goose Shaft, and shall be invited to attend meetings of the Order of the Gray Goose Shaft and share their knowledge and opinions at such meetings.  Such visitors shall not be counted in a polling, and shall not be invited to join long-term groups such as the An Tir OGGS email list.

              c.     A member of an Equivalent Order resident in An Tir shall be invited to participate in all activities of the Order, including polling, as if they were members of the Order.

               

               

              Our action is unilateral. We are extending these privileges to the members of the named Orders, without having any reciprocal agreement with any other Kingdoms.  We would of course welcome such reciprocal agreements. We see this as a first step to looking and acting like a Peerage. To this end, members of other Kingdom Archery Orders may wish to consider drafting your own Constitutions based on your standards and listing "Equivalent Orders".

               

              If you are a member of one of the Orders listed below and are visiting An Tir, or moving to An Tir, be sure to look us up.  You will be welcomed to have a voice and part in our Council.

              d.    Society Orders currently recognized as Equivalent Orders are:

                                        i...        Royal Missile Company in West Kingdom (GoA)

                                       ii.        Order of Sagittarius in East Kingdom (AoA, polling)

                                      iii.        Greenwood Company in Middle Kingdom (GoA)

                                      iv.        Commanders of the Azure Archers in Atenveldt (GoA)

                                       v...        Order of the Split Arrow in Meridies (AoA, polling)

                                      vi.        Order of Chiron of Caid (GoA)

                                     vii.        Order of the Arc d'Or in Ansteorra (GoA)

                                    viii.        Order of the Yew Bow in Atlantia (GoA)

                                      ix.        Boga-Hirth in Calontir (GoA)

              In Service to the Dream,
