What a busy month we just had! We would like to take a moment to thank everyone who attended Potrero War. It is like a large family reunion for us Calafians, and so many cherished memories are made at this event every year. We offer our incredible thanks to the hard working event staff, particularly THL Magge Rose, THL Margeret Kerne and Lady Arnora Tryggvadottir. The staff for this event put in an incredible number of hours before and during the event, and they handled the many challenges that came up with patience and grace. Thank you as well to the many, many volunteers who gave time out of their war to make this event happen. It takes thousands of man hours to put on this event, and we couldn’t have done it without all the wonderful support from the populace!
Now that war is behind us, we turn our attention to the next big event for our Kingdom, Coronation! Our beloved King Mansur and Queen Eilidh will be handing over the reigns to Their Heirs on June 6th in Wintermist. We would like to encourage everyone who can to make the journey to bid farewell to our wonderful Monarchs and welcome in our Prince and Princess, Athanaric and Sigridr. This is always a bitter sweet time for Caid, and we are so grateful to King Mansur and Queen Eilidh for such a wonderful Reign.
As we move into the summer months, the hectic schedule slows down a bit and gives us a brief respite before fall tourney season picks up. This is a great time to work on your arts, polish up your armor, make some new gear, and get about those projects that you’ve been putting off. In July, the Iron Brigade will be putting on the annual Comic-Con Demo, followed closely by Arts in the Park on August 1. This is one of our biggest opportunities to show San Diego what Calafia is all about so let’s focus on putting on the best show we can!
And as one last reminder, at our June Council meeting (Thursday, June 18th) we will be polling on which of the candidates — THL Seraphina or Baron Tristan — will be our next seneschal. Please do try to make it to this meeting if at all possible, and send us your feedback about the candidates to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Thank you, Calafia, for being the best Barony in the entire Knowne World!
In service to Calafia,
Guy Rand and Muirrenn
Baron & Baroness of Calafia
