The Calendar Secretary maintains the Ansteorran calendar of events and submits it to the Kingdom Chronicler for publication in the Black Star, the Kingdom newsletter. The only official calendar is the one published in the Black Star. The online version is considered unofficial (please refer to Ansteorran Kingdom Law: V.1 Subsection 2.A) and for planning purposes only. This distinction is necessary in order to determine which version of the calendar document governs.

Please see the website on a larger display for detailed instructions before contacting the Calendar Secretary.
