Event Details
Fall Crown Tournament **UPDATED** TRM will be in attendance Event date: October 25th, 2008
Hosted by Shire of Glenn Linn - Lake George, NY
Event Last Modified: October 24th, 2008
 
Event details
On the twenty-fifth day of October A.S.  XLIII, King Darius IV and Queen Alethea will be choosing Their Heirs by right of arms.

The event site is a camp ground with acres of woods and a tranquil lake.  The tournament will be held in a large grassy field lined with trees.  A field adjacent to the tourney field has a large fire circle, an open-sided pavilion with fire hearth and another smaller grassy area.  Privies are located throughout the site.  Warm showers (104 degree F) are available as well near the list field.  All buildings are wheelchair accessible, but the trail from the list field to the feast hall is very hilly and may not be easy for wheelchairs (but there is a road that can be used).

**Site is discreetly damp.

**Please bring your pavilion as the weather prediction is rain in the afternoon.

For ease of arrival, separate Troll lines will be available for entrants and their consorts and preregistered gentles.

!!Upon arrival, please unload your gear and move your vehicle to the parking area before setting up. 

Please preregister if you desire a seat at feast, as the seating is limited.  The tables each seat 8, are 6 feet long and rectangular, with benches along the long sides and chairs on the ends.  The feast hall has a lovely stone hearth in case the day's weather is chill or wet.
