Spring Crown 2015
May 2, 2015
Barony of Ponte Alto
Since times ancient, only the most prow in skill and regal in bearing prevail against the thunderous might of those who aspire to the azure thrones.
We invite ONE and ALL to Come this day and bear witness to the grandeur and glory that is Atlantia!
The Barony of Ponte Alto is once again honored to be hosting Spring Crown Tournament (2015). Come fight for the glory of our great kingdom, or support your favorite combatant. A glorious day of pageantry, amazing feats of arms, and beautiful displays of arts and sciences awaits!
Martial Activities: Crown Tournament (Only)
Arts & Sciences Activities: Atlantia Tempore - The period for Tempore at this Spring Crown is 1250 A.D. to 1400 A.D. People may bring as many items as they wish to participate in a Tempore Atlantia exhibition. The only criteria will be that those items be from the time period being highlighted at this particular event. We hope that the Kingdom's Laurels, Pearls, and others will make it a regular part of their event day to visit the display area and perhaps leave comments and/or tokens for participants. Entrants will be able to mark their items as non-competitive"""" (display-only) if they choose. Complete details are at the Atlantian Ministry of Arts and Sciences page at http://moas.atlantia.sca.org/tempore.htm
Heraldic Display/Pageantry Competition - Heraldry displayed in day camps and presented in processionals will be judged for their contribution to the overall aesthetic of the event.
