The Fourteenth Year

Coronet Tournament -- Principality of An Tir
May 12-13, 1979 (AS XIV)

From The Page (May, 1979):

The An Tir Coronet tournament will be held at the Camano Island State Park. A group camping site has been reserved; there will be a fee of 50cents per person for the rental of the site. There are additional family campsites available for $3.50 per night but these must be arranged with the camp ranger. The site will open until 10 pm Friday evening and new arrivals can check in all day Saturday at the entrance to the group site. There will be no advance reservations.

The lists will be available for sign-up from 9 to 11 am and fighters not qualified must report to the field for qualification before 11 am. Court will begin at noon and the lists will run from 1 pm to 4:30. The semi-final round will be held on Sunday. Challenge matches will continue on Saturday until the second court begins at 5:30.

The Madrone Culinary Guild will organize the potluck feast after the second court on Saturday. They will contribute a roast piglet thereto. Please provide a contribution for ten people. Various activities including (we hope) a bardic circle will continue into the night -- but those not camping must depart by 10 pm.

The Coronet Lists will recommence at 11 am on Sunday, interspersed with challenges. After the lists are closed on Sunday, there will be an outdoor games fest. Shuttle-cock, quoits, etc will be provided for the amusement of the populace and a jeu de bolle tournament will be held. Final Court will begin at 1 pm and cleanup and camp breaking at 3 pm, although we are not required to leave the area that early.

There will be a Pied Piper's Place under the direction of Ann of Caerdydd. Children over 10 years may come to help supervise. Parents and other "volunteers" will be asked to contribute time. Activities are planned for the children.

Sir Seamus will sponsor a contest for a work of sculpture depicting a subject from SCA history. It may be made of wood, clay, stone, bronze, silver, or gold and may be either high or low relief.

Directions: (omitted). For further information: Theodulf of Borogrove, (contact info omitted).
