The Sixteenth Year

Spring Coronet Tournament -- Principality of Cynagua
May 23-24, 1981 (AS XVI)

From The Page (May, 1981):

The Cynagua Spring Coronet Tourney will be held at Orangevale Community Park in Sacramento; the same site as March Crown. There will be NO Friday set-up. The site will be open Saturday morning, May 23, and close at dark on Monday (Memorial Day) May 25. Because of the long weekend's increased site cost, we will collect a one-time charge of $2 per person at the entrance when you sign your waivers. For anyone under the age of 12 years the fee will be $1 for the weekend.

Saturday: Noon Court; followed by a Quest (sponsored by Rot Mahne) until sunset.

Sunday: 10:00 am - 12:30 pm Morning Court; followed by Coronet Lists, which start promptly at 1:00 pm. At the end of the Lists, there will be an evening Court for the new Lord and Lady of the Swan.

Arts Contests: Changing the New to Old - disguising a mundane light source; Genuine Fake - light source made using authentic period methods (handmade candles, lamps, etc.).

There will be a Bardic Circle after dinner. Bring firewood, kindling, etc.

Monday: Arts Contests to be held in the morning: Herbs for Everything - Use of an herb (or spice) in three or more different ways; Woven work - cloth, baskets, rugs, tapestries. For information concering the Arts competitions, contact the Principality Mistress of the Arts, Sharra Ni Perran (phone).
