The Le Crapaud Tourney scheduled for Saturday in Eddison Park, Woden, ACT was
cancelled due to wildfires burning near the capital of Canberra.
In a message posted on the Lochac list, Lord Dickin Shorthand reported that an
event has been cancelled and that other people are preparing to protect their homes from
the fires. Many places in the area are without power or internet connectivity.
There have been four deaths from the fires and many homes have already been
lost. By all reports, SCA members living in the area are fine, although some
have lost property or have had to move animals to safer areas. Several Lochac
members are known to be actively fighting the fires. Residents hope for rain
