Happy New Year to all! We hope you had a joyous holiday season, and that the new year brings peace and prosperity to all. As ever, with the new year we jump right in to a busy SCA schedule, with big events every weekend in January! Notably, we are hosting Coronation/12th Night to kick the year off. If you have never been to this event, this is a great opportunity to do so, as it is close to home here in Poway. Thank you to Lady Tierrynna for putting the event together, and to Don Avenel for heading up the feast - these are always very large tasks, and we thank them for their wonderful efforts! The day after Coronation will be Privy Council and the Kingdom War practice, both to be held at Allied Gardens. Please do come by and check out these great activities -there will be something to do for everyone! Thank you Baron Tiberius and Lord Cicero for making the war practice a reality!
Additionally, we have Angels Melee and Gyldenholt Unbelted Tourney also coming up in January - these are really unique events which always hold something unusual and exciting. The Baronial Pavilion will be making the journey to both events, and all are welcome to spend the day there. If you have a chance to visit one or both of those events, we highly recommend it! They are always a lot of fun.
And one final reminder -letters of intent for our successors are due January 31st. We have not received any letters to date, so if you have been contemplating putting in, now would be a great time! If you have any questions you would like to ask about the process of selecting heirs, what goes into being the B&B, or anything else about the process, please do not hesitate to reach out. If you are thinking of putting in but aren't sure, we are more than happy to sit down with you and discuss it and answer any questions you might have. This is a very large job for sure, but it is a very rewarding one, and the opportunity to serve Calafia in this way is incredibly humbling.
We are looking forward to all of the adventures and new experiences that this new year holds, and first and foremost, we are looking forward to making more wonderful memories in the finest Barony in the Knowne World!
In service to Calafia,
Guy Rand and Muirrenn
Baron & Baroness of Calafia
