Alas, our oriental soothsayers (who are never wrong) predict that our fair Palatine Baroness Katherine’s coronet will be lost by 15 September AS XLII (CE 2007). Therefore we will hold the coronet tournament of the Palatine Barony of the Far West at noon of the 15th day of September AS XLII at Tama Hills, Tokyo, Japan.
The site will open at 1800 14 Sep and close at noon on 16 September. Troll is $20 for adults and $10 for children. Child care is available for $10 per child. The feast fee is $20 for four meals ($5 per meal, breakfast, lunch, dinner and breakfast). Non-military personal will have to show a valid picture ID card or passport at the gate. Please email the autocrat for a map to find Tama Hills if you are not familiar with its location. Military personnel can obtain the map from their local MWR travel facility.
