It is with a very heavy heart that I am cancelling all scheduled equestrian activities for this weekend's Horse & Falcon event.
Aside from Gulf Wars, this is my favorite Calontir event. I received my Torse here. I became a Huscarl here. I was belted as a protégé here. I have made countless friends and renewed countless friendships here. Believe me when I say that this is the last decision
I would rather make.
I want to give my utmost thanks and appreciation to my fellow equestrian marshals that sunk time and effort into crafting the tournaments for this weekend. I wish the weather had cooperated. I have gifts for each of you when I next see you (hopefully this weekend,
but later if need be.)
The Honorable Lady Rhiannon - for your work on the Rose Tournament - ONE DAY we will be able to honor our Ladies and your creation can finally be seen & participated in by all.
Baroness Svana - for your work on the Hunt Tournament - thank you. It was a fun idea and I'm sure there are other places we can bring it out.
Duke Eringlin - for being OK with being volunteered for where I need it and taking my calls when I needed it. Thank you.
Sir Saito & Mistress Ise - for going with the flow and filling in where I needed. I can always rely on you. Thank you.
The Honorable Lady Katrin - for going with the flow as my co-EqMiC. Sorry we didn't actually get to bring things to fruition.
And to the ever-patient equestrians for understanding that indeed... we cannot control the weather... Without you, I wouldn't be so sad to make this announcement...
I do hope that you will decide to attend, despite this announcement! While the weather is not ideal, when it's not storming, it's quite beautiful.
There are 3 Vigils and Elevations for 3 very worthy people!
There is a graduation party to celebrate a 12 year journey!
There will be lots of food, friendship, and other activities that don't require solid footing during competition!
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I still hope to see many of you despite this.
In Service (and some Sadness),
Baroness Eowyth þa Siðend
