June Crown Tournament
June 20-21, AS XVI (1981)

From The Page (June, 1981):

Sunday morning of Crown Tourney, Her Majesty Andrea will sponsor a Boffer List for children ten years of age and under. Weapons and head protection will be provided by Her Majesty. Each contestant will be required to provide the following: gloves or mittens to protect the hands; body armour (at least as thick as a heavy coat); it must cover the torso and arms; and a waiver - signed by a parent or guardian - specifically for this event. The Lists will be marshalled by Her Majesty and Her Ladies. Prizes will be awarded for the most dramatic death, and to the fighter exhibiting the most remarkable courtesy during the Lists. The winner of the Tournament will be justly honoured.

There will be a competition for a lace of a gemoetric design at June Crown; the Order of Arachne's Web is offering a prize of tools or materials useful for lacemaking. The Costumer's Guild will judge Middle Eastern Costume; There will be a Medieval Bazaar where members may display and/or sell the products of their practice of the Medieval Arts and Sciences. At the Saturday night Bardic Circle there will be a Story-telling Contest; the Order of the Wooden Spoon will judge Vegetable Main Dishes.
