Tragic News and travelling safely
Fellow Merry Rose patrons:
I read with sorrow of the loss of Ealdoremere's King. I also note, with a
more resigned sadness, of the circumstances of his fate. I have been to many
events in a car packed to the gills with tent, armor, garb, and other people.
I know how easy it is to cram every square inch of a vehicle with SCA stuff,
so that you can barely see the tops of the windows. One thing I would ask
you to make sure you DON'T cover up:
Your seat belts.
They are terribly simple things to use, and there can be terrible
consequences if they are not used. Convenience is not worth having to mourn
the loss of another friend, as we already have so many times in the last few
years. Give yourself a chance-please wear your safety belt.
Elspeth of Caer Mear

many situations like this to keep quiet.)
