We invite all fighters to join the field for a Crown Tournament unlike any that have come before.

To determine Their Heirs, They would would fashion a Crucible. A true test of endurance and skill, that would be wrought from the swords and valiantry of the warriors of this Kingdom. To this end, They would have the fields divided and a round robin fought upon each field. From this will be determined the top two Contenders who have the most victories on each field and those warriors will advance to a second round robin. When the two best from the second round robin are determined, they shall fight finals as two victories out of three as is standard in the West.

The nature of this format will allow all fighters to enter; those who wish to contend for the Crown as well as those who wish only to test the mettle of those who compete. The combat between a Contender and a non-contender will be fought so that all may participate in the Glory of the West and will not count against those who fight for the Crown.

The Ladies of Royal Estate will be asked to join Her Majesty in watching for acts of Chivalry and Honor upon the field and to then give roses to those good gentles so that they may honor their consorts with this gift through out the day.

Directions:  From Chico and points North and West, take Hwy 70 to Quincy, go through most of town, turn left on Fairgrounds Rd and follow the road to the site.  From most other locations West of the CA/NV state line, take I80 to Truckee, CA and go North on HWY 89 to Hwy 70 and then go West to Quincy. Fairgrounds road will be on your right, turn right onto Fairgrounds Rd and follow the road to the site. The I80 route is an easier drive, particularly if you are pulling a trailer.
