Following a crucible round robin tournament, eight combatants advanced to the Crown List.

In the final round, Sir Alexander Hostilius Caidis fighting for Lady Tahira al-Fahida defeated Duke Sven Örfhendur fighting for Dame Ismay of Giggleswick (coincidentally, Alexander and Sven fought each other in the first round of the crucible as well, with similar result).

Eric Space Reservations

Their Majesties have asked that the space immediately adjacent to the fighting fields be reserved for pavillions and dayshades that are not obviously modern, so as to preserve the mood of the site for any pictures that are taken during the event. Priority for eric-front space is given to territorial groups. To make reservations, please email crown@sca-isles.org.

Event Directions

The event will be held at Live Oak Campground, 4600 CA-154, Santa Barbara, CA 93105.


from Lachlan of Cromarty

  • The day of Crown featured challenging weather (somewhat common for Live Oak Camp Crowns). Clouds of dust raced across the list fields and blew down some of the pavilions, wooden list barriers, Her Majesty's throne, and a fighter or two.
  • The crucible was well run and was completed in fast order.
  • Final round was best three of five fights with a variety of weapons forms. "Six foot spears" devolved into silly grappling, requiring the fighters to be separated repeatedly, until the marshals simply declared "OK. They're glaives now!" and the more typical clubbing techniques could be employed.
  • The lunch was fantastic!
