Event Wrap-up
Thank you, everyone for attending A Very Merry Yule at Crazy Uncle Cecil’s Tavern. 

This announcement comes a bit late, but with the intent of it being 2 weeks past the required waiting period for contact tracing. I am pleased to announce that there were no reported positive COVID cases with contact at this event. Thank you everyone for being safe, including people who chose to not attend the event due to possible exposure.

Between the pandemic, the weather, the venue change, the format change, and everything else going on right now, I truly appreciate each and every one of you who chose to spend your day celebrating the season with your Realms family. There were people there for whom this was their first event, people there whose realms careers are older than some of the other players, and everything in between. It was a lovely event and I appreciate and love you all.
