|Fall Crown Tournament **UPDATED**
||Event date: October 25th, 2003|
|Hosted by Barony of Bergental - New Salem, MA||Event Last Modified: October 14th, 2003|
|Join Their Majesties Balfar IV and Luna IV for the splendor and excitement of Fall Crown Tournament! Be on hand to witness the selection of Their Illustrious Heirs, who will lead the East Kingdom to defend our friends and neighbors, the Kingdom of Aethelmarc, at Pennsic War 33!|
The site of this year's festivities is the Barony of Bergental, at the Town Hall in New Salem, Massachusetts. Fighting will take place on the field adjacent to Town Hall. Both the building and fighting field are wheelchair accessible.
During the day, fighters and spectators will have the opportunity to savor the cooking of Mistress Murshidah (in the form of a hearty dayboard), and once your appetite has been whetted for more of her creations, join us in celebrating the new Heirs at a scrumptious 4-course feast (seating limited to 90 gentles). The site is bone dry and no flames of any sort are permitted. Food artisans are invited to meet Mistress Murshidah's Subtlety Challenge to create centerpieces for the feast tables; the winning entry will grace High Table during feast.
Poets of the East Kingdom will have the opportunity to showcase their talents in a Poetry Challenge sponsored by the King's and Queen's Bards.
The Barony of Bergental also welcomes any merchants who wish to sell their wares at this event; we cannot guarantee indoor space so merchants must bring their own shelter and tables.
If you find that Bergental is too far to travel in one day, nearby Orange, Massachusetts has two hotels: a Travel Inn and an Executive Inn (both within 10 minutes of site); there are many more hotels within a relatively short drive in Holyoke, Massachusetts (where 202 and Interstate 91 intersect).
Site Opens: 10 am
Site Closes: 11 pm
