Crown Tourney Pre-Reg Due This Wednesday May 13th

Pre-Reg for May Crown: Now more important than ever!

Here’s an excerpt that you may find relevant:
8:00 AM Lists Open for Crown Tournament, List Tent
9:00 AM Assembly for Processional
9:30 AM Opening Court and Processional
10:30 AM Crown Tournament to Begin Immediately After Invocation

That is only an HOUR for crown registration. This May more then ever before you will benefit from the quick and easy, streamlined process of pre-registering. When you pre-register, all you have to do is check in with us Saturday morning with a nod and smile and we’re off to the races.

To pre-register simply send this information to me at lists@antir.sca.org or blaze2242@gmail.com.

Fighter:

  1. Fighting title (e.g., Duke, Countess, Viscount, Sir)
  2. SCA name
  3. Modern name
  4. SCA membership number and expiry date
  5. If you are a Squire or Man-At-Arms (and to whom)

The memberships and fighting authorization will be confirmed, and you will receive an email from Lists containing your pre-registration number as confirmation. Your lists shield will be pulled for you; if you don’t have one, we have some delightfully cute lists shields for loan. All you will need to do on tourney day is to let Lists know you’re there, and go to the heralds for your processional card.

Thanks for making Lists job easier, and hopefully, making it a better event for you – saving everyone some time and pressure on the morning of the Crown Tourney.

2015 Championships and Boars Hunt

Remember, Champions, to submit your formats for this year’s competitions for approval by Their Excellencies as soon as possible. Also please be sure to include myself as Autocrat, and Aenor de Pessac as Coordinator, in your email, so that we can post your formats in the An Tir calendar for all the populace to see.

Also please remember that scheduling and location for all activities during the event are at the Their Excellencies’ and the Autocrats’ discretion, and are subject to change due to event circumstances. There is a lot going on for Boars Hunt and All Champions, and we have to squeeze a lot into a very short span of time, allowing for as many people to participate and experience all the things they would like to.

Flyers will be going up at Sir Eddies this weekend to advertise our event.

A New Championship for Aquaterra

Following considerable further discussion at tonight’s Business Meeting, and reflecting upon the comments received both via Reeds and private missive, His Excellency and I have chosen to move forward with creating a new Cut and Thrust Championship. We thank all those who shared their wisdom on this matter.

Let all competitors stand ready to declare their intent to compete at Boars Hunt/ All Champions this June! More information will be posted as developed.

Candidate Contact Information

Duchess Angharad and I are aware that not everyone will be able to attend the Meet & Greet sessions scheduled for next week. We would like to make ourselves available for those unable to attend and for those who would like to ask us questions in a less formal setting. In order to make this happen, we will arrive at Denny’s at 6pm for tomorrow’s meeting. We will also be volunteering at Sir Eddie’s on Saturday. If neither of these options work for you, please feel free to contact us via email, Facebook Messenger or a phone call.

In Service,

HL Aenor and I also recognize the importance of reaching as many people
as possible during this short polling window, and would like to make
ourselves available for questions from the populace, especially for those
unable to attend next week’s Meet & Greet. In order to help folks
interested in speaking with both couples tomorrow evening, we will stay to
speak with people after the meeting. While we will not be at Eddie’s (due
to a medical conference scheduled for Saturday), we are always available via
email, Facebook Messenger, or by phone.
