Thanks to everyone who came out to Baronial Birthday in June. We all had a great time.
We’re looking forward to a joint fighter practice with Marinus on Sunday, July 17 at 1pm at Elizabeth River Park in Chesapeake. Then we’re off to Pennsic at the end of July/start of August and will take the rest of August off. On Labor Day weekend, we’ll be hosting an equestrian event: Emerald Hastilude. We’ll be presenting a demo at the Newport News Fall Festival on October 1 and 2 (10am to 5pm). And at some point we’ll do more free Medieval Mosey hike and picnic events.
We have two new events coming up soon.
On May 21 we will have our second, free, Medieval Mosey event. This one will be at Sandy Bottom Nature Center in Hampton, VA.
On June 18 we will have our Baronial Birthday event with fighting, court, and a feast!
Pages have been created for both events with details to be added as they are set.
We hope people will come to our Medieval Munch and Mosey on April 9. Covid restrictions are lightening, so we should have no issues with a public outdoor event.
The Kingdom is slowly opening up again. Ymir is this weekend and other events are happening soon. Weather permitting, we’re going to resume fencing practice. A&S classes are continuing online.
All in-person activities are subject to the Society Covid-Safe policy and the Kingdom of Atlantia’s choices within that policy. See https://atlantia.sca.org/reopening-atlantia/ for the current rules.
Our next in-Barony gathering is a Medieval Munch and Mosey on April 9. Hope you can join us.

From the Kingdom Chatelaine:
New to the SCA or Atlantia, join us for Their Royal Majesties Court during 12th night! We will explain the goings-on, the awards, and the traditions taking place. We look forward to meeting you! This Saturday, January 15, the room opens at 11:30 am for Noon Court!
Greetings unto the Kingdom of Atlantia from Duchess Simone,
After consultation with their Majesties Eckehard and Jane, we have determined that it is necessary for the safety of our populace to extend the suspension on events and activities in Atlantia. We still have concerns regarding the rate of Covid infections in our states and the District. We are going to continue the pause of all in-person official activities and events until Friday February 4, 2022.
Please wait to hear from the event steward for Manannan Mac Lir before canceling your reservations, as I hope they will be able to reschedule for a later date.
We shall see this dark time behind us, so please continue to be kind and patient with each other. Tonight, I ask you to raise a glass to their Majesties and our Atlantia.
Vivat Atlantia Vivat!
Seneschal, Kingdom of Atlantia

Their Majesties are currently conducting a polling of confidence regarding a new term for our Baron and Baroness. All paid members in our zip codes should have received an email or a postcard with instructions. If not, you can feel free to email Their Majesties with your thoughts at email@example.com . The polling closes on Friday, Dec 3rd.
The Kingdom of Atlantia has adopted a new Covid-19 policy that can be read here. The short version is that at in-person activities we’ll be requiring proof of vaccination or a negative test within the previous 72 hours. Follow the above link for more details.
With that in mind, we’re still having archery and fencing practices in person and an occasional outdoor A&S activity. Please join our Facebook groups for current details.
With Covid going back and forth, we’re continuing our outdoor archery and fencing practices, but staying virtual for A&S and business meetings. We’re hoping to be able to see more people in person soon.
We’re slowly starting back up. We’ve restarted archery and rapier practices.
Our first post-covid event will be June 26. It will be a small local event where we will virtually watch some of the Coronation activities as well as having some local fun. Pre-registration is required. Link to more information is on the right.
