Crown Tourney updates:
It looks like its going to be a chilly day for Crown Tourney this weekend. We've decided to move the tourney field up closer to the parking area to facilitate the rapid loading and unloading of gear, and we're moving court and as many other things as possible indoors to a large auditorium that is about 150 yards from the field. This is the perfect opportunity to get out your woolen clothes. The tentative schedule for the days activities are:
10am - site opens
11am - morning court
12noon - procession of combatants and consorts
1ish - let the fighting begin
3ish - circles and classes
5pm - dinner break
6:30 - court
9pm - site closes
