Hard to believe that time has come already. What a ride it has been!

This fall Her Excellency and I are required to decide if we will ask for the one year extension to our three year reign. Policy indicates this choice be made no later than November of this year, however after a lengthy discussion we have decided to announce our decision early. After talking about it at length, Her Excellency and I have decided to end our reign at three years and not ask for the extension. This was not an easy choice for either of us. The past two years have been a wonderful experience for both of us. We thought back to our first event, the Investiture of Carolus and Isolda, when Miriel and I had barely cut our teeth in the SCA, to our years of service as retainer, guard, and herald. As new members of the Barony we helped craft the very thrones in which we would later sit. It is something we will remember for the rest of our time in the SCA and our lives. Very shortly the process will begin to find our Heirs, and Her Excellency look forward to seeing who that will be and watching them make their own mark on the Barony. Her Excellency and I are available to talk to interested people and answer questions as we are able. We encourage everyone with an interest to think about running. It is a wonderful job, yes there are some hard days, but it is worth every minute. We will save further thanks for later because we are not done yet and we have no intention of slowing down! This choice was not made due to a lack of energy, interest, or pride in the Barony. We have a year to go and we are already making plans for next year.
