From the SCA Kingdom of the West web site: "Their Majesties, Miles and Æsa, invite you to gather in the grand spirit of the West Kingdom pay witness to the March Crown Tournament, as the most magnificent fighters display their finest skills to vie for the honor of becoming the Royal Heirs. They bid you to dance the Pied d'Argent, meet the many fine artisans, examine the wares of the merchants, and make merry as Their Heirs are chosen and celebrated."
We'll set up
Friday morning, time TBD. Use the East Street Gate.
Tell them you're with the Vikings of Bjornstad. Head to the right corner of the
fairgrounds, toward the corner
of Gibson Rd. and East St.
Here's the site information provided by Henrik and Ed:
"The site (Yolo County Fairgrounds) has flush toilet bathrooms and hot
showers.. It is mainly a lawn area with asphalt roadways leading in from the
parking lot (to animal pens beyond the event use area is) where some RV
space is possibly available in the parking lot - but without hookups, I
would guess . The lot is some 50 to 100 yards from the merchant area which
has some lawn closer to the lot and has more asphalt farther from the
field is on the opposite side of the asphalt driveway leading in from the
parking lot. It will have a clear central area for the combat activity to
happen on and will generally be surrounded by people's private pavilions and
tents, with a few openings for access to the field for everyone as well as
emergency vehicles( in case they may be needed). A generally 20 foot or so
wide roadway surrounds the tenting area and passes in front of the merchant
area, providing separation between the two use areas, with allowance for use
of odd parcels of space located here and there for late or non conforming
This is a good opportunity for recruiting, so let's bring as much of our
arts & crafts as possible. I haven't seen any suggestion that we'll perform
The Viking Art of War, so we may not have a performance.
Here's the event's
and two maps of the fairgrounds.
