Greetings Unto the Known World!
As the terrible foe is beaten slowly into submission, it is with great joy that We are able to announce that as of this time, pending local regulations, law enforcement and health services requirements, Estrella War will be happening this November! War this year is scheduled to occur November 9th through the 15th at Country Thunder Ranch in Florence, Arizona. For up to date information about the event, please visit the War website, estrellawar.org
It is the intention of everyone on the War staff to get pre-reg up and running as quickly as possible, so that we can begin to plan for the largest volunteer run War in the Society! A few things will need to change regarding pre-reg, and are important to note: first, ALL attendees must pre-register. This is a Society requirement, and there will be no exceptions. Next, attendance this year will be capped to ensure that we are able to provide the appropriate services for all attendees. Finally, there will be a minimum number of pre-registrations required to allow the War to move forward. This is an effort to protect the War from potential low turnout, which could have a negative effect on the future of the War.
Please note that COVID has changed the landscape of how we are able to function, and as such, has created additional amenities that we will need to provide in order to help ensure that participants are as safe as possible at War. Those amenities include but are not limited to: additional showers, additional privies, handwashing stations, sanitizer stations, and increased cleaning schedules for the above items. To that end, there will be a non-refundable COVID surcharge this year at War. It is our sincere hope that this will be a temporary addition, and that we are able to reduce or eliminate it in years to come.
We know that there are some things that are changing the way we participate at War, but We are confident that you are all as excited as We are to make this year’s return to War one that We can all look back on with fond memories, as We begin to build new traditions and continue to honor those that make us all what We are.
We are sure that you may have questions as we move closer to War, and to help with that, We are currently developing FAQs, which will be posted on the Estrella War website and updated frequently. Please refer to that document regularly to get the latest updated information as it becomes available.
We can’t wait to see you all!
