Change of Venue -- posted on Facebook and shared on various media, March 21, 2017:
****URGENT UPDATE ABOUT THE SITE FOR CROWN****

Unto Our noble populace, do Roger and Zanobia send word about Crown Tournament,

Due to the weather, the site owners for the March Crown location have determined that they are unable to accommodate Our event this weekend. Our hardworking, fast thinking Seneschal Francisco has secured us Bolado Park in Tres Pinos. We understand that this is a difficult change for some people to make, but at such a late notice, this is the only option that was open to us. We greatly hope that you will still attend and help make this event a grand and glorious one! All activities are still on for this weekend, until further notice. If you have hotel reservations in Napa, please cancel them ASAP. If you have any questions or comments, please direct them to His Majesty or Myself, as the Autocrat and Seneschal will be very busy making final arrangements for this change in venue. We appreciate your support and cooperation.

Long live the West!

In Service,
Roger and Zanobia
King and Queen of the West
