"In recent weeks we know that many members of Our populace have heard rumors about Estrella War moving to a new site. We want to let you know that this rumor is indeed true. At this time, the Kingdom of Atenveldt has an agreement with the owners of Canyon Moon Ranch to host Estrella War XXIII. We are now in the process of negotiating all the details of the contract. Canyon Moon Ranch is the site that currently hosts Country Thunder and is located just outside Florence, Arizona.
It is not Our intention to keep Our populace in the dark. However, we must complete contract negotiations before we can divulge the details that led to the decision to move the war.
Please understand that it is with Heavy Heart that We leave Estrella Mountain Park, and that this decision was not taken lightly. We have consulted with the War Autocrats, and the Kingdom Financial Committee, and have their agreement that this decision is in the best interest of the Kingdom of Atenveldt and the Estrella War."
