|Cead Mille Failte! A thousand thousand welcomes to the brave fighters of the East, their noble consorts, and all who wish to join us for Their Majesties' Spring Crown Tourney and Festival, held in the bustling Shire of Hartshorn-dale.|
The tournament will be held in an arena with bench seating for spectators and musicians. The surface is stable sand/dirt. For your comfort, bench cushions would be an excellent item to pack. Arming pavilions may be set up at the top and bottom of the fighting area until the space is full; preference given to period tents. Overflow is just outside the arena on the grass.
In the true tradition of tournaments, "The Marketplace" also beckons, where dayboard servers, merchants and artisans vie for your attention. If you would like to claim a space, please contact Lady Naomi bat Avraham at the address below.
Based on the tournament format, the tournament MUST begin promptly. Please Troll in as soon as you arrive and then gather across the drive from the arena for the procession. Signs will direct you.
- Qualification bouts will be starting at 10:30 AM
- Procession must begin at 11:15 AM
- MoL check-in will close at precisely 11:45 AM
- The Tourney is to start promptly at noon
