We are moving closer to the time where we hope for the return and reuniting with friends and family from afar. As we approach this time, we need to be aware and mindful of the outside factors that may impact our plans and which may, in the more extreme cases, potentially postpone them.
As always, logistics, policy, politics, health, infection rates, and financial barriers are considerations behind Our decisions to re-open and continue Our Kingdom’s progress toward sustainable event planning, and reinstating Kingdom level eventing.
At the core of Our current considerations is the upcoming potential to hold Our Crown tournament, Sept 4.
Our position has always been to resume as normal within Our typical Kingdom calendar, upon reopening. We hoped to bring our Kingdom back together with the fewest issues or complexities that changing key event dates, or combining events could potentially cause.
At this time, We believe the best path forward considering the developing trajectory of current concerns of COVID-19, is to cancel the current plans for Our Crown Tournament, and postpone to a later date.
We have maintained since the beginning that one of the conditions required to hold Our Crown Tournament is that the International border must be open for non-essential travel. With that in mind, the potential need to postpone Our September Crown tournament and not proceed to Our final step of event openings has always been present and possible. Currently there are considerations that remain, and this has prompted this decision.
As the time has come closer, We have considered deadlines and the work being done to prepare for this event. We are aware of the complexities and impact this will have on the people involved, the local groups, and those planning to attend.
We want to thank the event team and those involved in the planned execution of this event, for their hard work under the expected difficulties the first major events were likely to face.
We have heard your voices, and We have taken your words to heart. Many wish for a return, and others ask for caution and delay; We weigh all of these considerations when We plan how to move forward for this great Populace that We have vowed to protect with all of Our power.
We will be reviewing the potential dates to hold Our postponed Crown Tournament, and We will announce our planned new date as soon as possible via the kingdom webpage, and We will communicate as best as is possible across all available social media platforms.
Thank you for your understanding, as We navigate these delicate actions toward our long awaited return.
