Registering your event online is strongly preferred. However, if you wish to register an event by mail, please use the Event Registration Form.

SPIKE Workflow

  1. Event Stewward registers the event
  2. Once submitted and email is automatically sent to the Event Stewward and Seneschal of the group with instructions on how to review and approve the event.
    • There are some situations (out of kingdom events for example) where we don't know the Event Stewward. Please contact the Calendar Dept. to register those events.
  3. Once approved, the Calendar Dept is notified that the event is ready to be "Spiked".
  4. The Calendar Dept reviews the information and checks for conflicts with other events.
  5. If everything passes inspection the event is added to the calendar on the website and the Event Stewward is notified.
  6. At this time the Event Stewward may, if they choose, create a 'flyer' for their event by clicking this 'Flyer Submission' Link. (This Must be done before the First day of the Month prior to the event for The Acorn publication.)
  7. The flyer is reviewed and, assuming there are no glaring problems, added to your event. The flyer replaces the information on the website calendar so be sure to provide as much detail as possible, within reason. The Chronicler may need to edit down your flyer to make it fit in the Acorn if you get too wordy.
  8. Websites: If you wish to include a website, you may use any means you wish. The exception is Kingdom Events. They must be held on the Kingdom Website. Please contact the Atlantian Webminister. Note: Facebook pages or other social media pages are not allowed on the Kingdom Calendar or in the Acorn.
