The Shire of Mountain Freehold is proud to host the Crown Tournament of King Gryffith and Queen Aikaterine.
Time: The tournament will start at noon.
All entrants must be checked in by 11 AM, with a procession starting at 11:30 AM.
The tourney will be as His Majesty deems.
Gate: Guests may arrive Friday night. The event runs from 6pm Friday until noon on Sunday. A separate check-in line will be available at Gate on Saturday morning for Crown Tourney entrants and consorts. Express check-in will be available for those who have provided all required information on the registration form, and included proof of membership.
Dayboard: A hot day board with soups, stews, cheese, fruit, and bread and hot drinks will be served, cooked by Lady Tegan Dragonsblood ni'Conmara. All may partake of the lunchboard.
Feast: Lady Tomyris of Stonemarche will serve a feast for 125 in the evening. Contact the cooks for concerns about the menu. Reservations for the feast will close on October 10, so that the cooks may prepare properly for our guests. The only reservation is a paid reservation. Enclosed flames are allowed in the feast hall.
The Site: The site is a beautiful YMCA Camp. Fighting will be outside, except in the most fierce of Northern gales. Visitors should dress for the outside, in late fall on Lake Champlain, which can be very windy and chill. The King has set aside a heated hall for the shelter of his subjects, where cheer may be had by a roaring fireplace, with hot drinks available all day long. There will also be a bonfire outside, not far from the fighting area, for warmth for the combatants and populace.
Site Rules: It's a YMCA camp, so no alcohol is allowed on site, except for cooking and unopened gifts. Only service animals are allowed. The site is handicapped accessible outside and at least one porta-potty will be w/c accessible. All buildings, however, have steps for access. There is a ramp to the feast hall but it is steep; wheelchair-bound people may need assistance. Smoking is allowed in a marked area only. Enclosed flames are allowed in the feast hall.
Lodging: Minimally heated cabins are available with beds and mattresses, for an additional charge. These cabins are for eight people.
Contact Baroness Ardenia for details.
Please note: Our plan is to combine groups to fill the cabins, unless other arrangements are made in advance. There are also inns and hotels in the area for more luxurious accommodations. Contact the autocrat for more information.
Wash houses are located near each group of cabins with hot showers and flush toilets.
