From The Page (August, 2017):

Come join us for the KHTI Ducal Prize Tourney. Ducal Prize is jointly sponsored by the West Kingdom and KHTI to raise money for the im­provement of our new permanent tourney site in Catheys Valley, Ca. Since this is a jointly sponsored event, please be prepared to sign an event-specific waiver.

This year, if we get the use permit in time Ducal Prize will be held on our new land in Catheys Valley, CA. In the event that the use permit is not available in time, we will be holding Ducal Prize at Skyline Wilderness Park in Napa, Ca. KHTI has been working hard to get the site ready to use, but due to state regulations and ongoing work efforts, it is uncertain if it will be done in time.

As soon as KHTI knows for sure what site is going to be used, both the West Kingdom calendar and the Facebook event page will be updated and there will be an announcement made ASAP.

For schedule of activities please see the Facebook event page. (web address omitted)

To the populace of the West Kingdom. We are officially moving the location of the Ducal Prize tourney to Skyline Wilderness Park in Napa, ca. This was a difficult decision. I have been following the scanner broadcasts for the Detwiler fire and the way the fire is progressing we dont want to put any extra strain on the resources out there. We already have the contingency in place and are just waiting on the final approval for the Napa site.

There have been multiple mandatory evacuations in the area. This has been a crazy year for weather and the fire danger is extremely high. Please if you are in the area and you need help reach out to us or the West Kingdom disaster relief team. Our hopes and prayers go out to the firefighters and personel fighting this fire.

It was also very unlikly that we would have gotten the approval to have anytype of fire at the new site, and in my opinion that would made for a very Lackluster first event at the site. This will also give us the oppurtunity to get more work done on the site to prepare it for its first event.

Event details will be updated on the event page and the west kingdom calendar.
