September Crown 2022

 

An in-person Crown event of Device of Kingdom of An Tir

The Kingdom of An Tir (Oregon, Washington, Northern Idaho, and British Columbia)

Event Summary

Event Main Contact (Event Steward): Arontius of Bygelswade
Date: September 2 , 2022 until September, 5 2022
Site opens at: 12:00 PM on September 2th 2022
Site closes at: 12:00 AM on September 5th 2022

Event site:
Kitsap County Fairgrounds and Event Center
1200 Fairgrounds Rd NW Bremerton, WA 98311



Please join your friends and family from around the Kingdom (and those traveling from far distant lands) as we witness the fierce competition amongst those who would vie for the Sable Lion Throne of An Tir. The warriors who would claim such title must be fierce in deeds and chivalrous in nature. The finest representatives of these traits will be present at this most worthy of occasions.

September Crown is also the occasion of the Kingdom of An Tir Protector Championship (archery and related), as well as the An Tir Kingdom Equestrian Championship. Both competitions will be glorious to watch.

The location is within the beautiful lands of The Barony of Dragon’s Laire, where Their Excellencies Kloe of Thira and Arion the Wanderer await your arrival. We will do our best to ensure your stay with us is something to bring memories lasting a lifetime.

The site itself is the Kitsap County Fairgrounds, which played host to the recent event of June Faire. Even though it has been more than thirty years since we used this site last, the event was a success and we learned many valuable lessons which will be incorporated into the plan for September Crown.

Hotels are within a very short distance from Site, with all amenities one might need from a thriving city to be found in Silverdale, Washington. You will not lack for anything you might need to enhance your stay.

The Kingdom Calendar is being continually updated with information. A web-site for the event will be found on the Dragon’s Laire Baronial Web-Page ( https://dragonslaire.antir.org/ ), as well as a Facebook Page. Each of these locations are also being continually updated with advertising.

DIRTY DOZEN DONATION DERBY! (Updated 08/30/2022) –

Thank you! Woohoo! I received another entry into the Donation Derby at September Crown!! Please help us make this a great Derby, with many choices to vote on, by entering now! All Donations need to be at the donation table (in the September Crown Arts and Sciences Village) by 8am on Saturday, September 3rd and the populace will vote on the entries until 30 minutes before court, where the winner will be announced and all the largesse that is entered is given to the Crown and the Barony of Dragon’s Laire to give out. I look forward to hearing from you soon!!

Original Posting: We have been having requests, so….I am hosting a Dirty Dozen Donation Derby at September Crown 2022: Saturday, September 3rd, in the Barony of Dragon’s Laire.

PLEASE READ ALL THE INFORMATION BELOW!

Please drop-off your completed and tagged items at the Donation Derby table by 8am, Saturday, September 3rd. The table location will be announced closer to the day of the event. All Donations will be shared equally between The Crown of An Tir and the Barony of Dragon’s Laire to be handed out at their discretion.

The Dirty Dozen Donation Derby was created as a way to encourage the creation of Largess through friendly competition. The way it works is that entrants create 12 of one kind of item….your choice (see pictures for inspiration). Your items MUST be tagged and ready to be given out as largess immediately.

There are so many amazing ideas for the entries! Children’s toys, candles, soaps, jewelry, jams, silk painted fans, sets of beads, embroidered needle books, felted bowls… anything that maybe YOU would love to receive as Largesse!

This is not an Arts and Sciences competition so you do not need to document your items. However, if you have done a re-creation, please include that information on the tag!

Please include all ingredients for foods, soaps, candles…anything that someone with allergies will need to be aware of. Any scented items need to be sealed well to avoid airborne allergies.

During the event, people come by to see all you have created and vote on their favorite item by dropping a token in that entry’s cup. The winner is the entrant with the most tokens. An announcement about the winner of the derby will be made at the evening court that same day. …and the prize??!! The winner of the derby gets one item from each of the other competitors!!! So let your creative juices flow and get to creating! (Please Share to spread the news. Thank you).

See you at September Crown, THL Diana Cartier (diana.cartier [AT] yahoo.com)

Registration Information

PRE-REGISTRATION FOR SEPTEMBER CROWN IS NOW CLOSED!

CAMPING RESERVATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED!

Our Camp Coordinator is HL Tamsyn l’Argent at shawn.fritter [AT] att.net

Notes for those in RVs –

Master Hrollaugr Njalsson at n7bsn [AT] yahoo.com will be coordinating placement of RVs. He will need additional information.
Type of RV: RV, RV with an additional vehicle, RV with additional tents, or need ADA accommodations.
Length x Width including all slide outs and awnings
If there are other RVs you would prefer to be next to or near.

Primary RV camping will be in the Gordon Field parking lot – there is no power located there, but can include ADA as it is a level and short walk between there and the Crown Tournament Fields. This will help foster and RV ‘community’ and also easy access to visiting friends in the evening.

If you NEED power, we can place you on the side edge of the Kitsap Sun Pavilion lot. There are RV electrical hook-ups there, but be aware that some RVs may not be able to connect to the power there (adapters may be required of which we do not have).

Equestrian Area – limited space close to the barn we have access to for stalls and then further space along the arena. The scenario(s) selected for the Kingdom Protector Tournament may require last-minute changes to this plan, but we’ll work on this. We also must ensure we leave space around the arena for people to WATCH the activities in the Arena (including the Equestrian Championship).

LIMITED small RV/camp trailer behind the Presidents Hall (primarily restricted to those who MUST be close to the Arts and Sciences area, this is a very small area where large RVs will not be able to access in any case).

Accessibility Information

ACCESSIBILITY 

Dragon’s Laire is happy to announce that the September Crown site, the Kitsap County Fairgrounds, is accessible! The main event site is level with a few gentle slopes and paved pathways. Paved parking is plentiful and near the event. 

You can choose to camp in the main camping area, which is flat, however, located in a “bowl” or in the designated accessible area which is accessed by a short, gentle slope. Worried that neither will work for your needs? We will be providing assistance for those with mobility challenges in moving between the main event site and camping through the use of golf carts. 

As with all events hosted by Dragon’s Laire, there will be plenty of accessible biffies throughout the site. 

Day tripping and need a break from the hustle and bustle and don’t have a place to go? Perhaps you’re camping and need a place to relax but don’t want to have to go all the way back to camp. Maybe you’re dealing with sensory overload and need a place to recenter yourself. Is your blood sugar low and you’re not sure you can make it back to camp? We’ve got that covered! Take a break in our Calm Space aka the “Chillvilion” located near volunteer point. Fidgets* and water will be provided in the Chillvilion and, if needed, you can grab a snack for your low blood sugar from the volunteer tent.  

Have specific accessibility needs that are not covered here? Please feel free to reach out to me and I will do my best to answer them. You can email me directly at moc.liamg@nametag.yssej or message me through FB where I am Jessica Bennett.

*Fidgets are the property of my daughter. Please do not take them out of the Chillvilion. Thank you!

KINGDOM PROTECTOR SCENARIO FOR SEPTEMBER CROWN (UPDATED 08/31/2022) –

Greetings,

The Kingdom Protector Tournament will be Sunday at September Crown.

Competitors will need to present both blue cards and current Fight card with authorization in combat archery in order to enter.

The tournament will be comprised of two parts; a target shoot and a combat archery shoot. Points for each round will be awarded in descending order based on number of competitors (i/e if there are 8 people that entered, the top score in the target shoot will earn 8 points and each subsequent score will earn one less point than the score above them, with the lowest score earning 1 point for their Target shoot score). The two competitors with the highest combined scores for both the target shoot and combat archery parts of the tournament will go to the finals.

More about the tournament format:

Round 1 – Target Shoot:

There will be silhouette targets at the 30 yard and 40 yard lines. Scoring will be based on face, head, and body shots (point distributions will be explained more in detail at the tournament).
At the 20 yard target there will be a simulation of robin hood shooting the hangman’s rope by using a printed target with a yellow head hanging from a rope.
Points will be earned by hitting the rope on the target and points will be deducted for hitting the head.
This will also be shot through an archers slit as if one was shooting from a castle.
Finally, a timed round shot at a two silhouette targets (set at 20 yards). Both targets will have to be hit for the points from this part to count towards your target shoot score, and then additional points awarded for each additional arrow hitting the silhouette targets.

Round 2 – Combat Shoot:

Standard combat archery corridor shoot (I will be happy to show you and anyone else this on Sunday once we are set up). This will be done in a round robin format.

Final Round:

The finals are traditionally decided on by the current crown.

ARTS AND SCIENCES ACTIVITIES! (UPDATED 07/25/2022) –

Even though the emphasis at September Crown is the martiallate, the Arts and Sciences will be well represented! With an Arts and Sciences Village!
Just to the North of the Marketplace is a triangle of land which will play host to a number of activities.

In one of the picnic shelters (the ‘log cabin’ picnic shelter) located there will be an Artisans Gathering Point, where an Artisans’ Tea will be held over the course of the day on both Saturday and Sunday. This is an area where we encourage artists and craftspeople to gather and demonstrate their works. This will be an opportunity to speak with others who have similar interests and skills. If you want to learn practically any type of art or science found within the SCA, this is an area to seek and find those with knowledge.

At some point over the weekend (the ‘Non Crown Tournament’ day), the new Kingdom Minister of Arts and Sciences, Her Grace Stjarna Dagrun will be holding a ‘Meet-And-Greet’ targeting all the Branch Ministers of Arts and Sciences. This is an opportunity to meet your community and talk about what is happening in your area. You can hear of what others are doing to be successful, and maybe speak to some of the activities you have planned.

Several Artisans will have displays within the Village. This includes some marvelous displays of weaving on a full loom by Mistress Elisabeth de Besancon and a pottery wheel in motion by Dame Gwenllyn Potter.

At the West end of the Arts and Sciences Village is a picnic shelter which will be hosting Bardic performances and classes. This is the same location that hosted Bardic at June Faire. The wonderful and talented Mistress Elisabeth Piper and Mistress Elanor of Eccleshall will be managing this space.

Across the street from the Village Triangle an area will host the Culinary crafts. HL Ciar ingen Fiachnae will be the point-of-contact for this area.

We are planning to have classes, jam sessions, sing-alongs, and performances.

Anyone interested in teaching, leading or participating in any of these, please contact Dame Elanor of Eccleshall at fb msg Karen Elanor Eccles or moc.liamg@selcce.r.nerak.

We will do our best to schedule around the many activities of the event!

CLASSES WILL BE AVAILABLE!

Two pavilions will be set up in the Arts and Sciences Village Triangle where a number of classes will be scheduled. Tentatively, we are looking at classes on Saturday and Sunday. Classes are scheduled for 10AM to Noon, and from Noon to 2PM. Eight classes! We are currently seeking instructors to fill these time periods! If you are excited about the art and / or science you’ve been working lately, come teach here. You would be very welcome!

 

There will be TWO Pavilions set up to host classes:
10-12: Each tent has an up to 2 hour hands on class.
12-2: each tent has an up to 2 hour hands on class.
Repeat for Sunday

We want to avoid classes being in session during Courts (which should happen according to our schedule).
Classes will not be in session during the Crown Tournament Finals (but this looks to be avoided as well according to our schedule).

To sign up for classes, stop by the Arts and Sciences Village on Friday evening from 4PM-6PM to sign up for Saturday classes. For Sunday classes, stop in from 9AM-2PM on Saturday. For last minute possible sign-up for Sunday classes, we’ll also have someone available from 9AM-Noon on Sunday.

Final Notes on Classes:
* Pay the teacher directly for materials they provide for their classes (which will be noted in their class descriptions).
* Bring a comfortable chair.
* Bring any items the teacher identified as being needed for the class.
* The Arts and Sciences Village is located to the North of the Tournament Fields, and adjacent to the Marketplace. There will be two pavilions, one with a red dagging and one with a gold dagging, which will be hosting the classes.
