The Royalty of the West and the The Barony of Westermark cordially invite you to attend Grand Coronation Festivities January 4th-6th, A.S. 42 (2008) Doubletree Hotel San Jose
Gates open Friday January 4th from 4pm-10pm and Saturday January 5th from 8am.- 4pm
We are planning many activities for the Week-end, from Friday on, including:
- A “Wandering Entertainment” Competition - Any interested entertainers, contact the committee
- Rooms for classes and dancing - schedule TBD
- There will be a well-lit room available Friday night with sewing machines and experts to help out with any last minute sewing projects, or just to socialize.
- also on Friday evening, by special request and popular demand, Duke Henrik will be showing several SCA home movies, including the "first party" film, and he is on the trail of many other early year films that have not been seen for many years.
We will be announcing other activities as they are confirmed. Saturday and Sunday schedules will be announced pending Royal Approval. Since the Hotel has a limited # of carts and employees to assist us in loading and unloading the vehicles as they arrive and depart, we are asking for volunteers for a "Brute Squad". We are looking for anyone who would like to spend time on Friday evening, Saturday morning, or Sunday morning helping others with their luggage. We ask anyone who has carts or hand trucks that will fit into the hotel elevators, to bring them to loan out for the week-end. If you have a household, men-at-arms, guards, or a lot of friends, we will be rewarding service with a smile, a thank-you, and a ribbon. Those who have the largest collection of ribbons at the end of the week-end have bragging rights for the rest of the year.
12 Night Location
We are once again being made very welcome by the Doubletree Hotel San Jose.

If you are planning any sort of party or vigil, we are reserving space on the 2nd floor as our "social/party" floor, so that it will be easier for all your guests to find your event and will help us to not disturb any non-SCA hotel guests. We will work with the hotel to make sure you get the rooms you would like on the 2nd floor, if you let the committee know your requirements after you book your room with the hotel.
