Greetings to the Middle Kingdom,
We have enjoyed Our recent travels and your wonderful hospitality. The good spirit of Our Kingdom was displayed recently at Rose Tournament in the Midlands region. The event had to shift from an outdoor area to an inside area because of the harsh wind and approaching rain. To do so required the moving of table and chairs in the inside space as well as the relocation of all the Roses and their day camps. With good will and smiles this was accomplished. Everyone lent a hand and the event was relocated in quick time so the tournament could begin. We were very impressed by Our people and think this behavior displays what the Society and Middle Kingdom are all about.
This is not the only time We have witnessed this behavior, it is just the most recent example. We frequently see Our citizens assisting those in need, whether in Our Kingdom or in other lands. It is commonly said in the SCA we can have the family of our choice, and we are all fortunate to have such a caring and loving family.
We are excited to have Heirs added into Our family. We hope you will come join Us at Crown Tournament if you are able. And We trust that you will welcome Our heirs as warmly as you have welcomed us.
Cellach and Vukasin
