Subject: [Branchseneschals] Fall Coronation ANNOUNCEMENT

Greetings Atlantia!

As of 11AM forecast, Tropical Storm Hanna is protected to pass almost directly over the event site for Coronation Friday night into Saturday morning. Since the state of NC has already begun voluntarily evacuations for the low lying areas in the county of the site, TRM, TRH, and our Kingdom Seneschal, in consultation with myself have decided to cancel Coronation for this weekend.

The Coronation of Jason Kinslae and Gerhild the Willful will be held next weekend, September 12th – 14th, at Chalice of the Sun God in the Barony of Ponte Alto. Please contact the event staff for Chalice of the Sun God for more information about cabin and feast space availability for next weekend. http://acorn.atlantia.sca.org/event_flyer.php?event_id=8f1ff147

Detailed information concerning the refund policy in regards to this weekend’s Coronation will be forth coming as soon as possible. Please feel free to cross post this notice as you will.

Please contact me with questions and concerns. 704-293-4443

On behalf of the populace of Raven’s Cove, I thank you for your patience and apologize for the weather,


Baroness Alesia Gillefalyn
Regional Seneschal for North Carolina

Well so much for my plans for the weekend. It looks like I'll be at work tomorrow...

Why not go ahead and take the vacation day anyway? Whoo hoo! Free weekend!

a) I was going to have to make up an hour of the day since I currently only have 7 hours of leave thanks to Pennsic

b) I have an email in to the HoB to see if we want to contact Grace to see if she wants "the evilness" for Chalice instead - which would mean taking next Friday off (if I can get it).

The amusing thing is that our first Chalice of the Sun God was cancelled due to a hurricane. We've been dodging them ever since.

I am sorry for their stress, but now I have some of my own {G}. I have the training for being an elections judge that afternoon. I am now trying to get in touch with the coordinator to see if there is an evening sometime I can take the training. Otherwise, I'll have to take Oct 6th off. Decisions, decisions.

I wasn't going to go to Chalice because it's my birthday weekend and I wanted to leave my options open. However, a day trip down there is starting to look pretty intriguing. And that means I have to decide whether or not to "feast" really fast or feast will be sold out.

Yes, if I go I will day trip to leave cabin space for people who need it more than I, especially since the Chalice site prohibits ALL tent camping.

This is a serious dillemma for me too. I want to try to go to chalice if it is also Coronation, but I am hosting bead making at my house. Maybe We can get beads done early and still get down there in time for court?

Sigh... So many desicions.

From what I've seen of past coronations, the proceedings tend to get going fairly early (like 10-11 a.m.) because the outgoing K&Q have to have Their last court, then release Their champions and Their great officers, and then say Their last bit and step down, and then the New Majesties are crowned with all sorts of ceremony, and then They swear in Their officers, and sometimes They do the fealty thing with all the Peers who are present....

Yep, when Logan and Rowan stepped up their Coronation ceremony was right about noon.

You both are pretty close to the schedule as it WAS to be... and probably will be close to the new schedule at Chalice.

BTW, sorry about the event being canceled... lets attack all people named Hanna or Hannah and blame them for the Storm!!! I was looking forward to coming to the beach for an event and I had my sign ready to be packed... I assume that plan is off now????

Yep - sadly I don't see us being able to shift things around enough to make it work. But don't worry, the evilness will eventually happen. We just need to figure out which event to do it for.

I'm sorry that things got canceled, but happy that the decision was made.
