It is with no small amount of disappointment that Her Majesty Tamar and I will be canceling all Calontir events for the Month of May.
In the past few days we have heard from leaders of our Cities and States. Missouri has announced that they will begin phasing out stay at home activities as they begin reopening “non-essential business” starting May 4th, Kansas has similar plans to begin on May 3rd, Nebraska on May 1, and Iowa on May 3rd. The Cities of Kansas City and St. Louis have extended their stay at home orders until Mid-May.
The common theme among these announcements at this time is, that while every civil community is optimistic, we are not yet prepared for large unessential gatherings. We know that this is not the news you wanted to hear, and it is certainly not the news we wished to deliver. We do believe that it is the best course of action.
We will continue to reassess as time passes and with all of us safe and healthy hope to continue our regular schedule soon.
You have all been amazing in these trying times. We appreciate all the extra effort you have given over the past few weeks and it gladdens us to see you all embrace our common cause. You stalwarts. You Dauntless.
To do other than we have chosen would potentially sacrifice many of you needlessly and that we could not abide.
Lucian and Tamar
