Pre-registration is now open for entrance into the Crown Tournament. It will close on Wednesday, May 14th at 8pm.

Pre-registration is an easy process – simply email Dame Elena, the Kingdom Lists Minister, at <> with the following information:


   Fighting title (e.g., Duke, Countess, Viscount, Sir)

   SCA Name   /   Modern Name   /   SCA membership number and expiry date

   Your SCA Branch   /   If you are a squire, and to whom   /   The fight practices you attend, up to 3


   Title (e.g., Duchess, Count, Viscountess, Master, Her Ladyship, Lord)

The memberships and fighting authorization will be confirmed, and you will receive an email from Lists containing your pre-registration number as confirmation. Your lists shield will be pulled for you – all you’ll need to do on tourney day is to let Lists know you’re there.

Please let Dame Elena know if you have any questions. Thanks for making Lists' job easier, and hopefully, making it a better tournament for you – saving everyone some time and pressure on the day of the tournament.
