[CAI] Caid Spring Crown

The time approaches when brave fighters and gracious consorts ready themselves for noble and glorious combat, aspiring to achieve the Crown and Throne of Caid. To this end, the Barony of Calafia welcomes all to bear witness and enjoy a day of pageantry and splendor on Saturday, March 5, 2011. Please come spend this historical day with us as we seek the heirs to the throne who will represent our fair kingdom at Pennsic XL!

Blackened Pot will be providing a delicious soup and quiche lunch for the hungry populace, for the paltry sum of $5 dollars.

Calafia has negotiated with the park for a late closure, so we do not have to be offsite by dark.  Because there are no restaurants very close to the park, all members of the populace are invited to a potluck following closing court.  Please bring a dish that serves 8, your feast gear and a chair.  There will be some access to propane stoves available on site.  More info will be available soon on the web.
