The Fifteenth Year

Coronet Tourney -- Principality of An Tir
May 17-18, 1980 (AS XV)

From The Page (May, 1980):

An Tir will hold its next Spring Coronet Tourney at the Snoqualmie River Campgrounds near Seattle, Washington. This is a private group campground (formerly public) and has been reserved by the SCA for the weekend. Friday night camping is available, but a separate $1.00 fee per camper will be required. There will be a fee of $2.00 per adult and $1.00 per child for both overnight and day users. The fee will be assessed as you arrive. Some parking is available; it will be controlled and restricted to an unobtrusive area of the site. The lists will be open at 10 am on Saturday, and opening court is scheduled for 12 noon. The semi-final and final rounds of the Coronet lists are scheduled for 11 am Sunday. The Madrone Culinary Guild will provide breakfast Sunday morning for a nominal fee.

The lists will be double elimination with any approved weapons. There will be a weapons and style qualification. Fighters must be qualified with the weapon and style with which they intend to fight. Fighters take heed: The Corpora of the SCA requires that to fight in a Crown or Coronet Tourney, you must be a paid member of the SCA. Likewise, your lady (or lord) must also be a paid member. This will be strictly enforced. As proof of your membership, it is suggested that you bring a copy of your cancelled check for membership or a copy of the Page with your mailing label attached. (Membership in the Society automatically gives you a subscription to the Page.)

The Council of Arts is sponsoring a bragging contest and a stationary design contest for the Council office. Morimoto Koryu is sponsoring a Sumo and a Geisha-Sumo contest. For information on the latter two, conctat the sponsor (contact info omitted). The Fellowship of the Keepers of Wisdom is sponsoring a contest for the Best Healing Balm, while Alan of Draccocrag and Gweniveave of the Dragon's Lair are sponsoring a Peasant Weapons Contest. (How would you arm your peasants in time of need?)

Fighters may contact the Mistress of the Lists, Gweniveave of Dragon's Lair (contact info omitted); to sponsor a contest or offer aid and comfort, contact the Autocrats, Edward the Stuffy and Rowenna de Manning (phone omitted).
