Event Cancellations in An Tir Extended Through the End Of May 2020

Public Announcement:

Greetings People of An Tir,

After continuing to monitor the ongoing efforts by the modern health authorities to combat the spread of COVID-19, the Crown and I have made the difficult decision to extend the cancellation of events and activities in An Tir through the end of May 2020.

While this impacts several local branch events, it will also affect An Tir’s May Crown Tournament. I have requested and received the needed variance from the Society Seneschal to delay the tournament until July Coronation. This is a large departure from our traditions in this Kingdom but I have every confidence that An Tir will continue to thrive despite these challenging times.

The Crown and I have been in regular communication with the Kingdom Events Deputy to make the needed adjustments to July Coronation. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Barony of Vulcanfeldt and the event staff for May Crown who put in a tremendous amount of work on behalf of the Kingdom to host the event. I would also like to thank the Shire of Lionsdale and the July Coronation event team for being extremely receptive and creative with finding solutions to accommodate a Crown Tournament into an already full weekend. You all have my deepest gratitude.

At July Coronation, the Crown Tournament will take place on Saturday morning. King Christian and Queen Helene have decided not to place limits on the list entrants. However, we would like to strongly encourage participants in the tournament to pre-register in order to facilitate a streamlined and efficient start to the day’s proceedings. The victors of the Crown List will be crowned the next King and Queen of An Tir during Saturday evening court. The Kingdom Champion Tournament will replace the Squires Tournament on Sunday morning.

The schedule for July Coronation is still being determined and we will need a little time to iron out the additional details surrounding meetings and other activities. These meetings and activities will be dependent on schedule availability and the needs of the event due to these special circumstances. Please keep an eye out in the coming several weeks for more information from the event staff regarding the schedule.

Finally, we are an international Kingdom and the Crown and I are aware that there are some travel advisories in place affecting the US/Canadian border. We will continue to monitor the border status as well as the health advisories affecting the municipalities in all parts of An Tir. Future decisions regarding events will be based on the most current information available to us.

In proud service to Crown and Kingdom,

Mistress Alianora Greymoor, OP

Seneschal of An Tir

Announcement From the Crown of An Tir Regarding Further Cancellations

Greetings to Our beloved Populace,

We find Ourselves once again in the unfortunate position of needing to cancel further events.

While the lands in this great Kingdom are vast and current levels of infection vary from region to region, We believe it is in the Kingdom’s best interest to extend the suspension of all SCA activities to align with the Modern Health Authorities current recommendation of 8 weeks.

We love the people of An Tir, and We feel this is the best chance We have to keep you as far out of harm’s way as is within Our power.

Over the past days, Our hearts have been warmed by the resilience, dedication, and care We have witnessed among Our people: offers of assistance to those who are struggling, planning of online classes, virtual merchant’s row, streaming demonstrations of art, and spaces for group online hangouts, to name a few. You make Us proud, An Tir.

We will make it through this, and this Kingdom will be stronger when this is behind us. We hope to return to the regular schedule of events as soon as is safe. Please see the missive shared from Our tireless Kingdom Seneschal for further details.

Until We meet again, We are here for you: do not hesitate to reach out with any matters you wish to discuss.

Christian III
Rex An Tir

Hélène III
Regina An Tir
