Please also remember this weekend of activities will include equestrian

Any Letters of Intent for Fall Crown Tournament must be received no later than September 6th.
If desired, letters of intent can be submitted online using the form located here.
Please note the applicable sections of Kingdom Law, which apply to both the combatant and consort:
Article III: CROWN TOURNAMENT REQUIREMENTS
Entrants in this section of Law are defined as the combatant and consort entering Crown Tournament.
All entrants in the Crown Tournament must be members of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc.
All entrants in the Crown Tournament must be 18 years of age or older as of the date of Crown Tournament.
The withdrawal of either entrant from the Crown Lists shall automatically eliminate both from that Tournament, except as provided below in paragraph III-1100. Either may withdraw at any point in the Tournament by notifying the Minister of the Lists.
In order to be eligible to fight or be fought for in Crown Tournament, a person must be a subject (as defined in Corpora) of Æthelmearc for one year immediately prior to Crown Tournament and be able to demonstrate a reasonable level of participation in Æthelmearc during that period.
The Crown may waive the above requirements if the entrants are subjects of the Kingdom and able to demonstrate to the Crown’s satisfaction by their own words or by recommendation of peers of the Kingdom that they have sufficient familiarity with Kingdom Law and customs and an acceptable level of participation.
Letters of intent must be sent to the Crown. They must include the following elements for both entrants:
Proofs of membership
Age (proof to be supplied at Crown Tournament)
Proof of current authorization for Combatants
To facilitate complete letters of intent, a form is available on the Kingdom website as well as from the Crown and the Seneschal on request. Prospective entrants are encouraged but not required to use this form to ensure a complete letter. Letters of intent must be mailed, e-mailed, or hand-delivered to the Crown no later than 30 days prior to the Crown Tournament.
The Kingdom Seneschal shall verify eligibility as defined in the Bylaws and Corpora.
No person shall enter the Crown Tournament without intending an honorable attempt to compete for the Crown. At the discretion of the Royalty whose Crown it is, the Kingdom Officers who administer Crown may step aside and have their emergency deputy administer the Tourney, so they may enter. In the event a Kingdom Officer should win Crown, the Law regarding Emergency Deputies and office succession will apply.
The entrants must be acceptable to the Crown or Their representatives.
No person fighting in or being fought for in Crown Tournament may administer the Crown Tournament.
Any two people may champion each other in the Crown Lists (hereinafter referred to as a combatant couple so long as neither is championed by any other person.
If one member of a combatant couple is removed from the Crown Lists for marshallate infractions or any infractions of the Rules of the Lists, both members are ineligible to continue in that Crown Tournament. If one member of a combatant couple voluntarily withdraws as a combatant in the Lists, the MOL and Marshal will confer with the withdrawing member to determine if they are also withdrawing as consort or if the other member may continue in the Lists. If the participant withdraws both as fighter and consort, both shall be ineligible to continue in that Crown Tournament.
The preferred method of Crown Tournament is a double-elimination format.
The winner of the Crown Tournament and the winner’s consort become the new Heirs to the Throne of Æthelmearc. They are each entitled to the Title of Crown Prince or Crown Princess, as appropriate to the individual’s persona.
Upon ascending to the Throne, They may rightfully be acknowledged as Monarch and Consort with alternate Titles as appropriate to the dignity of the Throne.
Baroness Ekaterina Volkova reports from today’s Fall Crown Tourney and We Are The Escarbuncle 20th Anniversary Celebration that Duke Sven Gunnarsson and Duchess Siobhán inghean uí Liatháin are now Prince and Princess of Æthelmearc.
Prince Sven won best two out of three bouts in the finals, with great sword and two sword.
The staff of Æthelmearc’s 20 Year Celebration and Fall Crown Tournament share some insight on what promises to be a very special event.
There have been many questions about this weekend’s Æthlemearc’s Fall Crown and Twentieth Anniversary Celebration. Why are they being held together? What makes this event special? It’s really exciting, so the staff and I wanted to fill you in.
This event is about celebrating the creation of our Kingdom and the choosing of new Royal Heirs, so we sought out a site that’s central for everyone: All Saints Camp (110 All Saints Rd, Emlenton, PA 16373.) We are pleased to offer tent camping space free of charge on both Friday and Saturday nights.
Troll will open at 3 pm on Friday evening, and Lady Zianna beguy urdina de Zabaleta has graciously provided us with a Traveler’s Repast; Vegetable soup , beef stew, bread, butter , vegetables, hummus, and a cookie.
On Saturday, there will be a brief Morning Court at 10 am on the List field followed by the Crown Tournament Processional. If you wish to have a shade on the field; please reach out to our Day Shade Coordinators – Lady Arthes MacLeod (Brandy Straub, firstname.lastname@example.org, 412-352-0978) and Lord Alister MacLeod (Greg Straub, email@example.com, 412-216-5443). We are giving priority to Combatant and Consort Pairs.
Lunch will be served to the Tournament Field with a seated lunch near our arts and sciences display. Mistress Illadore de Bedegrayne has provided a gracious menu. Please contact her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with any food allergies or other issues.
Feast Menu from the THL Ottilige van Rappoltsweiler; a remove for each style of cooking she has studied. A love letter to her Kingdom through food! Please reach out to her with any food allergies at email@example.com You will find the menu here.
Commemorative Token made by Edena the Red and Countess Anna Leigh.
We have a merchants row with several great vendors. A commemorative token for 20th year has been cast which will be sold as a personal fund raiser with proceeds to be split between the works of the Pewter Guild and Travel Expenses of their Majesties. The pewter work is by the hands of Edana the Red with detail beading by Countess Anna Leigh. They will be available onsite for $5.00. We have 100 minted and Edana has graciously offered to make more for those that would still want one after we sell out or are not able to attend the event. You will need to mail her a self-addressed envelope and the funds for your piece and she will send one out to you(Bridgette Montgomery; 128 Russellton Dorseyville Rd., Cheswick, PA 15024). The pewter token is based on an original pendant housed at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Created in 13th c. France during the Gothic period, the materials are gilded copper and champlevé enamel. It measures 4 x 3 1/2 inches. The difference in size accounts for the changes in details. Pewter tokens were used to mark an occasion such as a pilgrimage or royal event.
Reverse of Commemorative Token
Now, I know what you are thinking, this doesn’t sound all that different from a Fall Crown – but on the occasion of our Twentieth Anniversary, there will be an opportunity to enjoy almost anything that our fair kingdom has to offer. We have archery, atl-atl, thrown weapons, arts, history, heraldry, cut and thrust is starting a new competition, and the equestrians will be out in force. We’ve added a Friday evening torchlight tournament for rattan combat and a melee scenario after Crown Tournament on Saturday that will include the youth rattan fighters alongside the adults! There will be Fencing starting with Friday night pickups and an early bird tournament and activities all day Saturday. The Kingdom Historian’s Office is preparing a display of the origins or our Beloved Kingdom so that we can reminisce and celebrate our beginnings and the ways that we have grown!
All are welcome to participate in the arts and science display run by THL Eleanore Godwin! “We need your items for display! Please bring one item you’ve made for display that represents “We are the Escarbuncle” to you. No documentation is required! There will be 3×5 cards for your name and information about your item. There will be a book to write your name in and about your item and how it represents “We are the Escarbuncle” to you. Items will be accepted on Saturday, from 9:30am to 11:00am. Display will be open to the populace from 11:00am to 8:00pm.”
Prefer other Arts or Sciences? We have a Brewer’s Round Table so that you can taste and talk about what you are making, how you can improve it, and see what other brewers have learned. Consider bringing your potable to share. Stop by the heraldic consult table to discuss a new device, badge, or registering your name. The Debatable Choir will give a concert of Æthelmearc Songs, and we will end Saturday in celebration: a ball with choral music and live musicians! All are welcome to come dance, and musicians are wanted – speak with THL Sionn the Lost (Email jfkyle at gmail.com) about joining the players!
There’s simply too much to keep listing; our schedule and contacts are here.
