Pre-registration for Coronet Lists is now open!

Why should you pre-reg?
1.  It is MUCH faster for you at the event.  All you have to do is check in to verify you are there.  Your card and shield (provided you have one) will have already been pulled for you, and we will have verified your membership and fighting authorization and your inspiration's membership.
2.  Depending on how many entrants we have pre-registered, it could let Lists ensure a balance of royal peers, knights, squires, and unbelted in each field. We might even be able to balance fighters based on location so that you won't meet in the first round the fighters you see every week at fight practice!

How to pre-reg for Coronet Tourney:
Email the following information in an e-mail:

    Fighting title (e.g., Sir, Viscount, Duke)
    SCA name
    Modern name
    SCA membership number and expiry date
    Squire/Man-At-Arms and to whom
    What is the main fight practice you attend?

    SCA name
    Modern name
    SCA membership number and expiry date

Pre-registration deadline is Wednesday, October 24th at 8pm.

The schedule for this event will be very cozy, but never fear, you will be able to participate in both the A&S and Bardic portions of the event, AND the Coronet tournament, should you wish it. If you're terribly brave, the schedule should allow for a full entry in A&S, and a full entry in Bardic, AND entry into the Coronet Tournament! So bring out ALL your skills, and show everyone just what kind of amazingly diversely talented people call Tir Righ home! 

A preliminary schedule will be posted following the cut off for submission of letters of intent.  In addition to the three Championships, there will be TUTR classes, a rapier tournament, shopping, and A&S displays to entertain and amuse - something for everyone! So keep your eyes on the calendar page/website/facebook group for updates at the beginning of September. 

The Deadline for submission of letters of intent for both Bardic, and Arts and Sciences Competitors is fast approaching! If you are thinking of entering, either single entries or full entries, be sure to submit your letter of intent to the Tir Righ A&S Minister, the current Champion, their Excellencies the Tanist and Ban-Tanist, and their Highnesses no later than September 1.  Contact information for all parties can be found on the Tir Righ website. Rules for entrants are available on the event web page at

And, if you'd like to participate in the fabulousness that is A&S, but don't want to compete, never fear! We invite each and every branch in Tir Righ to send samples of the amazing works of their artisans to display at CASB! There will be a table for every branch, and you are welcome to send your works with a representative from your branch, even if you can't make it to the event yourself. (Though really, you should come too - it'll be fun!).  All items should have a card attached with the name of the Artisan, their branch, and a brief description of the item ("Anna the Artisan, from Lionsdale. It's a hat, from 14th century Germany") - no other documentation needed, unless you'd like to supply some! Contact the Event Steward, A&S Minister or the A&S Champion if you have questions.

Merchants, we need YOU! All merchants, especially those with period wares, are invited to come to CASB, and delight the populace with their merchandise.  The event will be very centrally located, and so will you, so it's an excellent opportunity to be able to watch the Coronet tournament, and entice the many gentles who will be in need of your goods.  Please contact the Event Steward to reserve your table space.
