Spring Crown Tournament (Event Cancelled)

Friday March 27th, 2020 to Sunday March 29th, 2020
Tres Pinos, California




Greetings to all of the wonderful populace of the West Kingdom.

As many of you may have read already, Their Majesties have made a decision to cancel the March Crown Tournament and all other events that are larger than a local practice. This is a decision that was made with much thought. The Officers of the West Kingdom and Myself are in support of this decision. We are working diligently on finding solutions to many questions being asked and are working hard to bring the populace of the West Kingdom events that are fun for all but also as safe as reasonably possible. We will be closely monitoring the situation regarding the outbreak of COVID-19 in the Kingdom of the West and will be making decisions about events and other gatherings based on availability medical information, state and local health agency recommendations, and guidelines.
Once again I ask that you have patience and understanding in this unusual time.
In Service
Gavin Conall of Greenlaw
Seneschal, Kingdom of the West


Fighters, Consorts, Merchants, Artisans, Revelers, all are welcome to attend Spring Crown 2020! Vie to become Heirs to the Western throne or watch in anticipation and eagerness to see who will next lead our great Kingdom. Her Majesty greatly enjoys watching dagger fighting. To encourage the practice of this specific fighting style, those heavy and rapier fighters who fight with a dagger during Roses will receive a token from Her Majesty. This is for fun, the enjoyment of the gallery and the fighters, and only applicable to fights during Roses. Not interested in marshal pursuits? There will be merchants, arts, and revelry as well, something for everyone!
