16 Mar 2020 – COVID-19 Update

Announcement from the Bryn Gwlad Seneschal:

UPDATE: All baronial activities are now cancelled until March 30th per our Kingdom Seneshcal.

We will be notifying Sherwood that we will be suspending our participation for the season. Please stay tuned on details on when we will arrange to remove our booth and demo items out at Sherwood.

Lysts on the Lake has also been cancelled by the event management so our participation there is also cancelled.

I am taking a wait and see approach and evaluating on a weekly basis. I feel it is my top priority to protect our membership as much as it is to protect the SCA in general. This week’s suspension will give us time to see how things develop. I would rather act out of an abundance of caution than to risk making things worse for our friends, health care workers and first-responders.

I am also considering the possibility that our March business meeting will have to be entirely conducted via Skype.

Please stay safe and healthy out there folks. My hope is that by our collective actions this will get better and things will return to normal much faster.
