NEW UPDATE: 7/20/2020
It has been five months since we have had the pleasure of each other’s company. Since we have gotten to share time and comradery in the joy of the events we so dearly love and miss.
Modern news assaults us daily – Pandemic cases increase; Politics divide us. We are faced constantly with a barrage of Us versus Them and What About-ism, with healthy outlets for these discussions and frustrations few and far between. Any one of these topics would be enough for heated debate and yet there seems a nearly unlimited number from which to choose.
And so strife has come home to us. All of Us. Yet again we are faced with another opportunity for each of us to choose who we want to be. Every day choose, for yourself, who you will be proud to have been tomorrow.
As we approach the end of July, Cases of Covid 19 continue to climb across the states composing Calontir according to the resources that we have used to monitor this growth. And while research of how the pandemic is spread shows that the everyday precautions we have already discussed do reduce the spread, we do not feel that we can responsibly hold large events or encourage unnecessary interstate travel.
Because of this we are cancelling all Calontir events for the month of August. This will include:
The annual event in Heralds Hill
With that said, We will continue to allow local groups to meet under the conditions we have previously discussed so long as the local leadership feels they can safely be held. Anyone in attendance must always wear a mask and maintain social distance, and any additional local, state, and national health guidelines must also be followed. This will not allow SCA combat of any kind.
