September Crown Camp Registration: Welcome to September Crown 2018! By following this link, you will find the information for large group camping. If you need less than a 30x30 space you will be directed to Open Camping. Individual tents, not a part of a large group, go into open camping.

Please keep checking the Kingdom Event Page and Dragon's Laire web-site on a regular basis for updated information. Pre-registration is not required with the exception of larger encampments (five tents or more) and RV campers. This is to ensure adequate space is reserved for those who need the extra space for larger groups of people.

**NOTE: Pre-registration does not automatically mean you will be placed with your group, you must contact the camping coordinator as soon as we have that person on board. We encourage all to pre-register as it will reduce the amount of time you have to spend at gate in registration. Pre-registration will be available through Mid-August.

Their Excellencies of Dragon's Laire, Conchobar MacEoin and Eilidh Keldeleth, invite one and all to join them and Their Royal Majesties Christian and Helene as we witness the epic tournament to determine who will be our next King and Queen of An Tir. This will indeed be a weekend of fun in the re-created Middle Ages and Renaissance in the picturesque township of Port Gamble, Washington. Dragon's Laire is especially filled with anticipation and excitement as we look forward to welcoming our friends from across the lands of Beautiful An Tir! Come be with us and be part of our merriment!

The site of Port Gamble is without power and we encourage you to prepare for all possibilities. Visit for community information. The Baronial website is, with a further link to September Crown event information.

The focus of September Crown is, of course, the Crown Tournament itself. However, it is also the Kingdom Event where the Equestrian Champion of An Tir will be chosen in a grueling set of trials that will test both horse and rider as many strive to carry the Kingdom Lance of Championship. To make this an even more magnificent event, the Kingdom Protector (An Tir Kingdom Archery Champion) will undergo trials to determine who will defend the Kingdom with their archery prowess.

Other Hand-To-Hand Combat / Martiallate Activities (Fighting) will include the Squires' Tournament and Magnificent Feats of Rapier (including Cut-And-Thrust). Come witness fighters in heavy armor attack each other ferociously to defend the honour of their inspiration. Watch the fighters of the Renaissance fight each other with deadly skill with finer arts of the rapier duel.

Range Combat and Competition: In another arena the best archers in the land will compete for the highest scores on the archery ranges, as they vie to be named Kingdom Protector (Kingdom Archery Champion). Next to the archery ranges will be Thrown Weapons, where those who specialize in the thrown axes, hatchets and knives will demonstrate their skill. If the fates allow, there will also be a demonstration of a ballista built by members of the Barony of Dragon's Laire. It will be a breath-taking demonstration of truly long-range combat.

The Arts and Sciences of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance will be on full display in the Artisans and Craftsman's Village. There are already plans for a Culinary Play Area, an 'All Things Fiber' tent, and a Pottery Shop. This is in addition to tents available for sitting and visiting with fellow artisans. The Kingdom Costumers Guild are also planning activities.

Music and the Bardic Arts - Listen as musicians wander the site playing music from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance on instruments that were played in that time period. Story-tellers will enchant the crowds as they tell the stories of the ages, and of the modern re-created ages. There may also be demonstrations of dancing from the period in stages specially set-up on site to show-case the dancing styles of the time.
