From the King and Queen

Thank you to all of Avacal from Your King and Queen. Her Majesty Eyoddi and I are humble by your service to and love of this Kingdom. So many wonderful events at Crown this past weekend.

Congratulations first to Our Heirs Prince Ellias and Princess Kiera. Both fought fiercely and with Your combined skill and experience ruling this Kingdom, We know that Avacal will be in good hands.

To the Silver Griffins, Hrogn and Astrid, you both also fought fiercely and We know that it is only a matter of time until you will also rule this Kingdom.

We cannot describe the honor and privilege that it was to be able to elevate such worthy and noble peers. When fighting in Crown I admit the desire to elevate My Ispiration to be Queen. But I never realized how incredible it was to be able to be a small part of the recognition of the your deeds.

Thank you Catra, Amery, and Hamelin for allowing us to be the ones to formally recognize all that you have done for Avacal and the SCA.

A new Youth Champion was brought to us on the winds. Vesla has already begun to gather wordfame. I am excited to see how you work to promote youth combat in Avacal over your term as Our Champion.

Finally a thank you to event stewards, heralds, marshalls, archers, teachers, bards, gards, artisans, merchants, organizers and volunteers and every other person too numerous to list who contributed in any and ever way to making Our Crown event something we will always remember. Our reign is half done but these moments we share last in fond memory until the end of time.

Message From Their Majesties

Unto the Mighty Kingdom of Avacal,

We write to our populace, fresh from the fighting fields of our great summer event, Quad War. The noble Barony of Borealis emerged victorious, but this victory was shared by all who fought, taught, or engaged in the revelry that unfolded before us.

We welcomed esteemed guests from far-off lands, including the noble Kingdoms of Trimaris and Northshield. Despite the challenges posed by inclement weather, the spirit of Quad War persevered, and all were impressed with our tenacity and unique coleslaw making techniques.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude for the generosity displayed by our people. The reports of our successful fundraising efforts filled our court, and we are proud of the lasting impact our contributions will have on the Quad War site.

Next is our journey to the fiftieth Pennsic in early August. While several of our populace are able to attend with us, we shall stand as proxies for all, carrying the spirit of Avacal to the Known World.

Our next home event will be Fall Crown. Join us on the September long weekend at the Quad War Site, where we shall witness, with our populace, the tournament to determine our Heirs and the pageantry of that great contest.

With resolute hearts and unwavering commitment, we stand as one in service to Avacal.

King Gunther and Queen Eyoddi

From the King and Queen

Unto the Mighty Kingdom of Avacal,

We are honoured and humbled to have been selected to serve as your new King and Queen. We want to express our heartfelt thanks to our predecessors, Their Graces Duke Kvigr and Duchess Svava, for their hard work and dedication to the Kingdom during their reign. We hope to continue building on the foundations they have laid and serve the Kingdom to the best of our abilities. We would also like to thank all those who have stepped forward with offers of service or words of encouragement. Avacal is blessed to have such a talented and enthusiastic populace! We understand the responsibilities that come with the Crown and are committed to upholding the ideals of chivalry, honour, and service that are the hallmarks of the SCA. We look forward to working with all of you to make Avacal an even better place, where all members can find their place and contribute to the game we love. We hope that you will join us in celebrating the rich history and traditions of our game, as well as the wonderful community of people who make it all possible.

Thank you for your support, and we look forward to serving as your King and Queen.

Yours in service,

King Gunther and Queen Eyoddi

Greetings from Their Royal Majesties

Our final missive is one of gratitude.

We find ourselves lacking the words to convey the gratitude we feel for this opportunity to be the Crowns of Avacal.  We enjoyed the opportunity to travel this Kingdom as your Sovereigns. Getting to see the populace and give recognition to Our talented Avacalians is a joy. We would not have been able to do this without the help and support of so many. To say thank you is not enough. But it does need to be said. Thank you to our retinue, to the Kingdom officers for keeping things running smoothly, to the makers that donated largesse and gifts, and to the people of Avacal for your support. We are honored to have been your King and Queen. We wish Their Royal Highnesses the best in their upcoming reign.

In service to Avacal and the Dream, now and always. 

Kvigr and Svava King and Queen of Avacal

Membership Renewal Portal Temporarily Down

It has been brought to our attention that with the website down some people can not renew their memberships on the SCA Website portal. We have spoken to the society senechal about a possible allowance for people to not have their memberships for crown as long as they get them as soon as the website is back up and running. This will NOT be allowed, because there is another option. One most of us have not used in some time but it still exists. You can renew and/or get a new membership by E-mail. With Crown only 3 weeks away there is still time to use this option, so we encourage everyone that needs to, to use the email option as soon as possible. I would hate to see anyone that wanted to be competing in Crown be sitting on the sidelines.

Greetings Avacal, 

Thank you to everyone that made our Coronation such a wonderful day. We were well looked after, by wonderful friends and retinue. We appreciate everyone taking the time to join us at the event and especially appreciate our out of Kingdom guests making the journey. It was wonderful to see you all! To the event and feast stewards, and all the volunteers of this Kingdom thank you for making the day what it was. 

We would also like to thank our newest Duke and Countess, Wernar and Sadb, for a job well done. 

Avacal, without you our game would not be what it is. This Kingdom is special, and our Populace makes it so. We wish to recognize those that contribute in deeds and generosity. Please let us know of the works of our wonderful populace and send in recommendations so that we may recognize them. 

In service to the Dream,

Greetings Avacal,

We have enjoyed our time serving Avacal as her Sovereigns! Our time is drawing to an end as your Crown, and we hope you will join our last court and the Coronation of our heirs, Kvigr and Svava, in the Barony of Montengarde.

As the fall harvest and winter draws near, we may see less of each other. Have no fear; we will all be looking forward to spring and summer when we can gather safely again, raise our glasses, and shout, “Avacal! Together We conquer!”

Enjoy yourselves, and above all else, be kind to each other!

Until we meet again,

Wernar II and Sadb I
King and Queen
