It has been a long hiatus since the Shire of Tirnewydd has been active. With the advent of COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdown, the SCA had gone into hibernation. “Exiled for the good of the realm,” became a common refrain on social media. Throughout 2020 and 2021, we have remained in this exile.
At long last, things are changing.
Mass vaccinations have beaten the virus back. COVID-19 is by no means vanquished, but it has weakened to the point that those exiled for the good of the realm may begin to come back. Raise your heads from slumber, SCAdians, for the awakening of our society is nigh. Brush the crumblies from your eyes, stretch those muscles unused to pursuit of art or arms, and adorn yourself to, once again, live the Dream.
