2020 was a year that was hardly characterized by our beautiful hobby. We were more in lockdown than in our lodges and were more with Corona mask than with " bandanas and cowboy hat ". We miss all those who shared their stories with us around the campfire and who delighted us with their music. We miss the good conversations among friends as well as the valuable exchange of knowledge. All that makes our hobby so interesting and beautiful was unfortunately missing this year.
We are burning to meet and hold workshops together again. We therefore also fervently hope that the general situation will improve again in 2021. However, we won't let it defeat us and therefore also see the New Year as an opportunity to make the moments we spend together as precious as possible.
What happens next in the New Year?
To be honest, it is very difficult for us to estimate. Of course, our hope is very much that the restrictions that are currently in place will have their effect and that the sacrifices that everyone currently has to make will not be in vain. Therefore, we cannot plan events - at least not yet. Of course, this is not only the case for us as Two Rivers Privity, but also for other organizers.
Unfortunately, it was very quiet in 2020. However, we hope that this will change again.
As soon as there is some loosening in sight, we want to bring Authentic Sundays back to life, as already announced in our first statement. We want to organize these get-togethers, to which all our members can contribute, in such a way that everyone can participate. There are no limits to the possible topics, as long as the activity relates to a historical era of the "Wild West". We also want to give interested people who have had no previous contact with historical representation an opportunity to get a taste of some of the workshops.
We will publish here how the concept will look in detail.
What about the Authentic Camp 2021?
Normally, our invitation to the authentic camp is published at the beginning of the year. Since at the moment everything is different as we know it so far, we hold back our invitation for the time being. Of course, we would like to be able to welcome many historical performers this year as well, but here we are dependent on how the situation develops, too.
In any case, we will let you know in time here as well. The targeted date is - as every year - the second week in August.
If all goes well, we hope for a hobby-rich 2021. In any case, we would be very happy about it!
Thank you for your trust and support!
We can't thank you enough for giving us your support and remaining loyal to us even in these difficult times. We wish you and your families a Happy New Year and would like to toast with you in spirit! Here's to a year where we get to spend more time together!
Stay healthy and see you soon!
Happy New Year!
