Event details
The Barony of L’Ile du Dragon Dormant would like to extend a joyous invitation to all residents of the East Kingdom and beyond to their fair shores on the 8th day of the month of May, AS XLIV, where The Future Royal Majesties of the East, Edward Grey of Lochleven and Marguerite Ingen Lochlain will be holding Their Spring Crown Tournament to witness the choosing, by right of arms, of the next heirs of the East.

The site will open at 10am - The tourney itself will begin at 12h30, to be followed in the evening by Royal Court if Their Majesties so wish, and by a wonderful feast prepared by the culinary team of Signore Cosmano Pierro Michelotto da Roma.  Any concerns about food should be expressed to him as soon as possible via e-mail at:  cosmano@wolfstar.ca

On-board attendance will be limited to 200 persons and there will be some room available for those attending off-board.

Tentative menu:
First remove - Salad, bread, cheese
Second remove - Venison stew, rice dish
Third remove - Duck/chicken, noodles Lyanna
Fourth remove - Beast Wellington, vegetable stew
Fifth remove - Fruit pies, sweet bread, pears and cream

Reservations for the event should be received in full at least two weeks prior to the event (24 April 2010); following that date no guarantee can be made as to the availability of space for feast at the door.  The cut off for cancellations is the same as the cut-off for reservations, 24 April 2010.

The only reservation is a paid reservation.  Reservations must include the full legal name of each person for whom a reservation is being made.  Canadian and American funds have always been and will always be honored in our Barony.  If you wish to be seated for the feast (or have off-board seating) please make a reservation - we cannot guarantee that any seats will be available "at the door".

All times after site opening are at the discretion of the Crown.

On 1 March and not before, we will start accepting on-site accommodation reservations. 

There are cabins available for a total sleeping capacity, on-site, of about 100 – 110 people.  Accommodations will be available at $1 per person on a first come first serve basis and every effort will be made to accommodate group bookings.  When you contact the Accommodations Coordinator to book, please be prepared to provide the names of the people who will be staying together so we can do our best to accommodate you in the most efficient manner possible. 

Accommodations Reservations and Information:

As it is long past the first of March, the time of booking on-site accommodations for Spring Crown is upon us.

We are asking $1 per person for this service, to be paid as soon as possible to confirm your reservation.

Please send me your name and the names of all in your group and we will accommodate you as best we can.  We will make all effort to keep members of groups housed as closely together as possible.

All cabins have electricity.  No bedding is being provided so you'll need to bring something comfortable to outfit your bed with.

Send reservations to me, Lady Camilla at:

Cheques are to be made payable to SCA Inc.  - Dragon Dormant

Please note:  This has nothing to do with your event reservation and should be a separate payment unless you make arrangements with the Event Reservations Clerk..You will still need to reserve for the event even though you have reserved for accommodations.

My address is:
Christine Chapman

There are also two shower buildings having 4 or 5 showers each. 

Some general Site and Event Information:
The camp is on a lake.  The event site ends at the waters' edge.  Any swimming/wading/playing in the water is at the risk of the swimmers.  We will have no lifeguards posted.

There will be a Queen's Tea at Her Majesty's leisure.

There will be space for tenting if anyone is so inclined.  Just let me know so that I can set aside space for you.

Request from the Event Steward:
If there is need for vigil space, please let me know so we can make the appropriate arrangements for you.  You don't need to tell me for who or what type of vigil, just that you'll be needing space.

The same goes for any meetings you may like to host.  If I know ahead of time, I may be able to make some space available for you.

If you have a pavilion to set up outside, please let me know how big so that we can make arrangements for that.

As you may or may not know, the site, as a Christian Youth Camp, is non-smoking and alcohol free.

However, the site manager has graciously agreed to allow us to set up designated smoking areas and to hold Spring Crown as "Discreetly wet"

Here are the "Vice Rules" :) :

* Absolutely no smoking in any of the buildings and smoking in the designated areas only.
* Anyone caught smoking outside a designated smoking area will first be told to extinguish their smoke and the next time will be told to leave the site.
* Anyone caught dropping a butt anywhere but in a designated butt receptacle will be on butt patrol to police for cigarette butts before the end of the event.  This includes the ground beside a butt receptacle.
* All empty bottles and cans must be cleaned up appropriately.
* Bottle tops, corks and can tabs (and any other such waste) must be disposed of appropriately and not left on the ground.
* If you are caught leaving a bottle cap or other such waste on the ground, you have just volunteered to police for bottle caps before leaving the site.  This includes the ground around the waste receptacles.
* Anyone obviously under the influence of alcohol will be escorted to their cabin or some other place out of the eyes of the rest of the event goers.  If they do not have a cabin they can go to, they will be asked to leave the site under the supervision of a friend.

This is a fantastic site and the site manager is making allowances for our group (the SCA) to use it.  We want to do everything we can to ensure our future welcome. 

Thank you all for your attention and patience.
