We will be using the List Board at the May Coronet Tourney. Bring your list shield. If you don't ahve one, here are the specifications:
1. It must be no larger than 3"wide and 3 1/2" long.
2. It must have a 1/4" hole in the top (for hanging).
3. It should have some means of identifying the fighter. If you have a device, use that. If you have no arms yet, you may put your name on the shield and paint over it when you do get a device.

Those fighters who do not bring a list shield will be assessed a $1 rental fee for one.

Remember, you must be a member of 3 months duration, and a resident of six months duration in Cynagua, to quality to fight in the Coronet List.
