Krokar July Newspost

Table of Contents

Two Years Strong

After a months of fear, tragedy, and uncertainty, life finally seems to be returning to normal for our quiet, peaceful pack. Try as life might to drag Krokar down, its members have stayed steady and strong and the pack continues to flourish! Krokar welcomed its first hairy cow calf in early March and many of its caribou cows gave birth to this year's brood of calves in June. The pack's livestock breeding program with Vinátta expanded to include AniWaya and our fearless Captains, accompanied by Semini and Milos, represented the pack in the Leadership Summit hosted by Casa di Cavarlieri at the end of May. Today, July 10th, also marks Krokar's second birthday! Now, with all the positive things we have to look forward to in the future, it's time to look back and consider everything we've accomplished in the past year!

Celebration of Achievements

Summer is finally here, and with the warm, refreshing water and blazing sunshine comes mosquitoes Krokar's annual Celebration of Achievements event! Members are encouraged to reflect back on all their accomplishments over the past year and strive to develop new goals to fulfill by next summer. Of course, no celebration is complete without good grub, luscious libations, and boisterous banter, and if Krokar exceeds at anything it's throwing a damn good party!

Join the festivities here at the mandatory pack thread!

Cantering Caribou

We're excited to introduce Krokar's Caribou Races as this year's Celebration of Achievement competition! Taseko and Hazel, in conjunction with the assistance of varied other pack mates, have been working hard to construct a track upon which the caribou will race one another around. Signups will begin July 10th and end July 24th. On July 25th the main thread with go up and the race will begin. Participants are encouraged to reply in this thread but this will not be mandatory. Winners will be announced on July 29th.

Ranks

The last few months have been trying for the souls of Krokar, between the violence of the Austringer Hostility and the chaos following the fall of the red star, but there were two women who put everything on the line and proved themselves worthy of becoming the pack's newest Navigators. Please join us in congratulating Eliza Cormier and Ciara into the Navigator rank! We know they'll help guide the pack well.

In addition, Semini was offered the Quartermaster position but respectfully declined the promotion, citing current concerns in her personal life. In her stead, Milos Parhelion has accepted the position as Krokar's newest Quartermaster!
