[ATL] Atlantian Spring Crown Tournament

Come one come all and witness the grandeur of Atlantian Spring Crown Tournament!    Pageantry, Pomp and Ceremony dominate as we gather together to  see the best of the best vie for the Crown of Atlantia!

Martial Activities:  Heavy Armored Tournament. There will be a War Practice Sunday May 6, 2012. The practice will begin promptly at 10 am giving those who have to travel the opportunity to participate. There is no additional charge to participate in the practice. If there are fighters that need to authorize an MoL will be there. Sir Joselin d’ Outremer will be the Marshal in charge of the practice. Any questions contact him at joselindoutremer[AT]gmail.com

Arts & Sciences Activities:  The Arts & Sciences activities at Crown Tournament (May 5th) will consist of two competitions plus Tempore Atlantia and an open display. The two competitions are both heraldic in nature, and your entries need not be new work. (Specifically, even if you have won a former competition with your item, it is still eligible.) The first is a competition for the best Heraldic Display involving a Field Pavilion. For this, documentation is optional, but highly encouraged, as it will be worth up to 3 extra points towards your score. The other competition is for Anything Heraldic. For this one, documentation is required. But don't panic! E-Z Doc forms will be gladly accepted (see http://larsdatter.com/ezdoc/) and, even if you forget, extra forms will be available on site which can be filled out on the day of the tourney. The prizes for each of these competitions is a gift certificate to JoAnn Fabrics.

Tempore Atlantia will be there. The competition time period is 1250 to 1492, and the pre-judging period is 1492 to 1600. And, finally, if you don't feel up to being judged, or if your work does not fit one of the competition categories, there will be a display area open to all artisans, regardless of discipline.
