For that it is Spring!

The birds blossom, the flowers sing, and the animals think upon the next generation and the creation thereof. Their Most Puissant Majesties of Calontir shall also require Heirs, and thus invite all to the Crucible of Honor that is Crown Tournament.

Join Their Majesties on the 8th day of April at the Andover Community Center (1008 E. 13th St. Andover KS, 67002) in Their Barony of Vatavia and partake of the spectacle. The site shall open at 9 of the clock in the morning and proceed to the same hour of the night, following a sumptuous feast cooked under the care of the Honorable Lady Snowlyne inghean Seamuis.

Greetings from agha Yasamin begam, Crown Tournament Event Steward.

We look forward to hosting you, the people of the Heartland, in the Barony of Vatavia, at this most festive occasion! To further your enjoyment, here are the details of the day.

Weather permitting, the Tournament will take place outdoors. Space around the list field for sunshades is first come, first served. Gate, meals and meetings will take place inside the hall. Fighters are welcome to engage in martial activities once the tournament is complete.

Alcohol is permitted in the areas of the park which we have rented--the Community Center and the outdoor tournament area. Alcohol is absolutely prohibited in any other areas of the park, and especially absolutely prohibited on the streets outside the park. We are the first group to take advantage of the city's outdoor space use policy, so infractions will very likely be noticed. Please respect our landlord's rules!

Lunch Tavern will be hosted by the Shire of Theobald College, and will feature chicken noodle and vegetarian soups, chicken salad and egg salad, hummus and other sundries.

The Honorable Lady Snowlyne inghean Seamuis has planned a repast to celebrate the coming of Spring, with a bountiful feast of Meat, Meat, Meat!! Skewered, roasted and boiled. We have gathered, traded and foraged for accompanying onions, garlic, roots, seeds and berries.
For those vegetarians traveling with carnivores, we can provide you some simple fare as well; please contact me to make arrangements.
