We will be holding our Crown Tourney on October 1 in the Barony of the
Rhydderiach Hael. Letters must be in our hand by our Coronation. Given the
close timing between Coronation and Crown Tournament we would appreciate
letters being in our hand well before that.
We have only one additional caveat to our Crown Tourney.
Consorts must be in attendance.
