The Principality's first Coronet Tourney will be held in the Barony of Calafia on June 8 and 9 in Balboa Park, San Diego, at the area north of the lawn bowling green, between Laurel and Quince Streets, also known as the Calafian Circle. There will be challenges, melees, and of course the lists to determine the first Prince of Caid. Other evengs will include games such as Clench-a-Wench and Poison, and the introduction of the namesake dances by the Baronial Mistresses of Arts. These dances will be indigenous to the baronies from which they come, and need not be historically correct in detail.

A luncheon will be served on Saturday, which will consist of lentil soup and bread, and another on Sunday, which will consist of cheese and fruit. Donations will be asked for both, 50cents for the former and 25cents for the latter. All these donations will go to the Principality coffers. A cooking contest will be held on Saturday in the category of vegetables.

There is no overnight camping at Balboa Park, so that pavilions will have to be dismantled at the end of the day; however, please bring pavilions and banners anyway if possible, for purposes of showing off.

Any who wish accomodations or need transportation from the airport should contact (Autocrat) Lady Persephone of Woodland (contact info omitted).

The schedule is as follows:
