I thought I would take a moment to quell some rumors, since the Maybe Staff of a Not Yet Event are having questions asked.
There is Not Going to be a Birka 2022.
We know you miss it and want it to happen.
We will try for 2023.
In the *planning stages* is a shopping event, in Stonemarche, trying to happen in early March.
This *potential* site has enough space to accommodate something Birka-sized, hence why you might hear of us turning over some stones and asking questions and getting quotes.
But they are NOT the same event. We Do Not Have a Signed Contract yet, and so NOTHING ABOUT THIS IS OFFICIAL OR ACTIONABLE.
Please do not start reserving hotel rooms, taking time off of work or bothering the royal Scheduler. (And before someone says “Who does that?”, I and all the staff of Actual Birka respond: “Way more people than you would expect, every year, the moment a whisper of the Birka date happens.”)
Your Stonemarche friends might know recent information, or outdated information that has changed. Spreading these around only makes more work for the staff as they have to correct people’s mismatched expectations of what is actually happening *OR* not happening.
If you have questions I can actually answer about a hypothetical event that *might* happen, please email me, Baron Keziah, the Maybe-Autocrat-if-a-Contract is signed at firstname.lastname@example.org
Stonemarche cannot wait to host an event again, but please, please, be patient a little bit longer.
Yours In Service,
Keziah, Baron of Stonemarche
