The month of April marks a year since We stepped up as the Crown. It was not what We had envisioned for Our “Coronation”, but We do not regret the choices that were made. There were so many unknowns then and as we look to the future, there are so many more.
As we move into Spring and the weather warms, there are still so many unknowns as to when things will reopen and we can all gather. Every day we all face new challenges and hurdles, but there have been some constant and wonderful things throughout the past year We have Reigned and that is the love, support and fellowship We have felt and seen demonstrated by the people of this wonderful Kingdom.
We made a pledge to the Kingdom a year ago and We would renew that pledge to the Kingdom now.
We pledge to the People
of the Kingdom of Ealdormere
to uphold and support you in dark days,
honour the laws and traditions of Ealdormere,
and to keep the needs of Ealdormere
foremost in our thoughts and hearts.
We stand with Ealdormere
apart, yet together in sprit,
until the day comes we can embrace again.
We will continue to hold steady, to support and to guide. We will continue to encourage, to inspire and to lead. We will continue as long as needed and the Kingdom will have Us.
Apart, yet together in sprit, until we can embrace again.
King Rattanicus and Queen Isabel
As you have no doubt seen, the BoD has released a new resolution to take effect on 1 June that allows for events subject to local health guidance, as well as mandating a number of restrictions. If you have not seen it, the announcement is here: https://www.sca.org/news/resolutiontoliftsuspensionapril2021
Given the state of the Province and our various lockdowns and restrictions we will not be having events starting in June. We will continue to stay the course as laid out in our reopening plan, which does not allow for events except after a staged resumption of activities as restrictions are lifted by the Province and benchmarks for COVID spread are met. Variances will be applied for as required and needed for differences in our situation versus the resolution's allowances.
The Privy Council will be revisiting the reopening plan to account for vaccines and loosening restrictions as that guidance becomes clearer in the coming months. When the plan has been updated, there will be general announcements.
For now we are, unfortunately, still as we have been for a while yet. It's been a long slog, but the light at the end of the tunnel is getting a bit brighter every day.
