Event details
Their Royal Majesties have chosen the Barony of Dragonship Haven to host Their Crown Tourney.  The site will be Warsaw Park in Ansonia – where King Darius won his first Crown Tourney.  Join us for a day of combat and chivalry, fellowship and fun.  The gates will open at 9 AM and the Mistress of the Lists will begin accepting entrants to the Tourney at 10 AM.  The list will close at 11:30 AM.  Please note that the Tourney itself will take place out-of-doors, regardless of weather, though there is an indoor area if the day is inclement.  Tents are welcome onsite.

There will be a youth combat tournament as well as an arts & sciences display.  There will be a room set aside indoors for this A&S display.

The site is handicapped-accessible.  Merchants are very welcome - please contact the Clerk of Merchants listed below.  This site is damp – PLEASE do not leave any empties lying around.  Also, the site recycles – please pay very close attention to his detail while on-site.

A hearty dayboard will be available to all, in addition to the sumptuous feast celebrating the King and Queen and Their Heirs.  Questions can be directed to the Head Cook, whose contact information is below.


There will be two rundraisers held this day.  The rist will be a coin/cash collection jar located at troll to benefit the school children impacted by Hurricane Katrina.  Money will be given to the Connecticut Association of Schools special Hurricane Katrina Fund to be used for school-related expenses for children, such as backpacks and school supplies, and for local school districts in the affected area.  Contact the autocrat for more information or see the writeup at the troll table.

Lady Vienna has graciously agreed to coordinate the second fund-raiser on behalf of Lady Renn.  This fund-raiser originally was to be hosted at the Oct 1 EKU, which was canceled.  There will be a raffle of items to benefit the American Red Cross Hurricane Katrina fund.  Donations of A&S items for the raffle are still being accepted.  Please contact Lady Vienna (contact info below) to coordinate items for auction.
